In front of the front axle there should be a handle and a tag that says gray tank. and if you can't find it than the handle fell off like mine did.

I believe the handle your talking about is behind the left rear axle under the office pop out. It must be the second grey tank. I thought this was a direct sink drain valve? Book manual does not show size or description.

There are two grey tanks for which the combined capacity is 88 gal. The shower tank is in the drop down area of the frame and the drain valve handle for it (a cable to the valve) is in the convenience center. The kitchen tank is over the axles area and the drain handle (a straight rod to the valve) for it sticks out from the frame near the wheels.

There is another discussion topic about this HERE.

The bath grey is along with the black tank pull in the convenience center and the galley grey is behind the left rear tire and itís easier to get to when the back slide is out. On our 3402, the black tank and bath grey tank are both 53 gallons and the galley is supposed to be 40 gallons, for a total of 93 gallons grey. The fresh tank is 66 gallons.

Carl. Mine has a cable pull for the galley tank. Must of done things differently for different models.

Weird! Are you the original owner or did a previous one change it around? The 3400 is standard layout (as opposed to some like the FL models) with the shower and black tank in the drop down frame and the galley tank near the axles. My 2012 with that layout has the galley tank handle just to the rear of the sewer outlet. It definitely is a rod.

On our 2017 it's plastic, but still a rod.

We are the second owners. The first ones had it for 6 months until they found it was too large for them to handle.
Well whoever replaced the valve with cable was very ambitious because it is a real bear to remove the coroplast all the way to the axles. I attempted it and gave up. I cut an access hole to take a look at the valve as it is cable operated and very hard to pull. I straightened the cable up and drilled another hole in the frame to make it closer to the sewer outlet. It pulls somewhat easier now and I can live with it.
Learned something new today.
