1959 28' Ambassador Plumbing Suggestions

This year Airstream only had a black water tank that was mounted directly under the toliet. There was no gray water tank. I am looking for suggestiond from you all on where to mount the gray water tank?

The cost and time to install a gray tank and reroute drain lines is prohibitive, IMHO. We use a blue tote for our gray water needs and it works great for us.

State laws vary on the dumping of gray water, but here in Arizona, we're pretty lucky. We can dump gray water on the ground as long as it's not from the kitchen sink.

Thanks for the reply. So you can allow the water from the shower to run on the ground? Yet the soapy water from the sink you drain into your blue tote? Then where does the water go?

When we are at a campground with hookups, that isn't an issue, of course, the gray water simply runs out into the sewer drain. If we are boondocking, we don't wash dishes we use paper plates and plastic utensils and cups. If we are dry camping at a campground, we dump all gray water into the blue tote and take it to the campground dump site when it's full. The blue tote connects to my TV's hitch ball and I can tow it to the dump site.
