Absolutely true Lora, keep the valve closed until you want to dump. You want ALL the liquid to push the solids out in one gush. Otherwise, paper, etc. gets stuck in the drain hose. EEEWWW

You let the black and grey tanks fill up and then dump the black followed by the grey. If you leave the black free flowing, all the liquid will drain from the tank, leaving solids behind because they haven't had time to dissolve in the liquid. TP in the tank is likely to stick to the sides without liquid.
By dumping the grey after the black, you will rinse the hose to some degree.
