I can pretty easily go two weeks without dumping my black. And I would gladly pay $20 to not mess with the portable tank or to pack up and move.

I got it.
To the OP is there not a bath house where you are staying that can handle the dooty?

Years ago we stayed at a state park near our kids. At that time we had a TT. I had a 32 gallon Barker that I left in the back of the pick-up. I used a macerator pump to empty the RV tanks into the Barker tank. This system worked well for us. To move the TT, with its small holding tanks, every time I needed to dump was a pain.

You should probably start a new thread for your question. There is a lot more info needed about your particular situation. First and foremost, do you have easy access to your septic clean out at your house?

Hi Cyrus - Welcome to the forum.

Please start a new topic with this question.

I think you'll find pretty quickly that dumping the tanks is no big deal.

My only nugget of wisdom is to find something called a "twist-on valve" at Amazon or Camping World. This valve goes at the end of your dump line just before the cap and provides an extra level of insurance in case you accidentally left a valve handle open.

Had a tote with my pop-up. Glad to see that go when we sold it. And that was just grey water. With the current trailer I would have to make two trips a week with a larger tote. No thanks, I will move the trailer. And usually we do move every week anyway so not really an issue. I would pay the $20 for the honey wagon. Although if I could stretch the service to every 10 to 14 days I would be conserving water.
