A 35 gallon tank when full will weigh close to 300 pounds. Are you equipped to handle that weight?

I think he's talking about an external tank, which sits on the ground, so....weight is not an issue. (unless you have to drag the thing uphill to get to a dump station, but tanks of this size typically have a hook of some sort so they can be towed by a vehicle.)

I have a 2013 International. If after doing dishes I let the kitchen sink stopper out to drain the sink bubbles up in the shower before (I believe) making it to the gray tank. I have to bleed it out.

Got to look at the underside of the dump valve and saw the grey water drain pipe was below the valve. So I now fully understand why the water backs up into the shower pan.
