I would get one of those clear drain pieces that can be use to see what is draining from the main drain hose. Close every thing but the tank you think is the one for the kitchen sink and 1/2 bath. You can then see what and how much water is draining from that thank.

Man, do I feel the fool. There is a second pull handle to another grey tank for the kitchen. It's separate from the rest and in its own compartment. Thanks all for the help.

I can guarantee you are NOT the first one that had this issue. On our trailer with two grey and one black and ONE sewer outlet pipe it is pretty easy to see all 3 handles and do a dump.

However I have seen many a trailer with TWO sewer outlet pipes and/or the tank drain connections in seperate locations on the trailer. and hence, well you found out the outcome!!

Glad your back in business

You're welcome. FYI, I prefer Coors.

NOW the bad news. Since you stated it eventually drained down, that means you drained water into your underbelly. SMELLY gray water in the underbelly. The tank is NOT completely sealed at the top fittings. You may need to open up the underbelly and let it dry out. Doug

Dougrainer, some of the overfill went into the under-storage compartment---not much and an easy cleanup. I didn't see any water underneath the trailer, so I don't think much got trapped above the lining. We're in the dry desert, so what little is left will dry out.
