1975 fresh water, black and gray tank capacity

Just wondering what are the tank capacities in a 1975 sovereign. I read a few threads and found that a standard grey tank was added in 1974 with a whopping 10 gallons. Getting ready to go on the first trip with the family end of May and need to know how much to conserve.

Tank capacity
Fresh water capacity?
Gray ? (is it truly 10 gallons?)

Thanks for the help

Some thoughts for you:
1. Paper plates/bowls and plastic utensils will save on dish water
2. Do your dishes in a pan in the sink, and throw the dish water into the bushes (use biodegradable soap)
3. Get a garden hose cap for your dump line and vent your grey water into the bushes if allowed (again use biodegradable soap)

Hope that helps!
