The fresh water tank works like the grey tank.
This technique is normal for most RVs, although some (such as my motorhome) have opaque grey waste tanks so that part doesn't work. The black tank method only works if the toilet is directly connected to the tank (sometimes in a fifth-wheel the bathroom is far above the black tank and the pipe isn't straight) - this is not a problem in any Escape.
