Considering Purchasing a Montana HC 310RE

Hi all. I just joined your forum and are enjoying and appreciate your posts. The reason I am here is my wife and I are about to purchase our semi-retirement FW. We had trailers and FWs for years raising 4 kids. This next purchase is for us . Here is our dilemma.
We have narrowed our search down to the 2019 Montana High Country 310RE or a GD Reflection 337RLS. In my opinion, the Montana 310RE competes directly with the GD 337RLS. Both are about 35 feet, similiar layout, finishes, features except the 2019 Montana 310RE comes with a 2nd A/C, one 88 Gal grey water tank (for those multiple showers) and the Moyre entry steps as standard on the 2019 model. All nice adds.
Are there any new 2018 or 2019 MOntana HC 310RE owners out there that were also considering the GD Reflection 337RLS? If so, what made you decide to go with the Montana 310RE?
Or for others what swayed you towards a 2018 or 2019 Montana HC 310RE over other brands?

Also I wanted to confirm the 88 gal grey water tank on the 310RE. Are there 2 grey water tanks that make up the 88 gal capacity or just one big one? If two tanks, what are the sizes of each?
Any input would be appreciated.

On most, if not all models, there are two grey tanks of equal size (one for the kitchen and one for the shower) and if you are somewhere where you have to keep the gray tanks shut the one for the shower is usually the one they run the drain for the washer into.

Thanks DQDick. The Dealer really didn't know if there was one or two grey tanks. However on the utility docking station there was only one pull valve for grey tanks. Is it possible the two tanks are coneected?

The galley gray tank valve is usually located toward the axles rather than in the convenience center with the bathroom gray tank.

On ours for sure they try really hard to confuse you by putting rear gray tank pull back by the black tank pull. I have never seen a two gray tank system where the two tanks don’t have separate valves. Not saying there isn’t one out there. The standard is to isolate each tank with its own valve

On some of the newer models they have even gone to a separate dump line for the black tank and the two gray tanks dump out of a second dump line (tied together downstream of valves)

I have heard of folks adding an external valve onto gray dump so they could equalize tanks as some folks tend to fill up one or the other much faster....
