Combo Gray/Blk Water Tanks

<I'll be taking a look at a 16' CCD in ________ on Thursday - I read various comments about the combination holding tank. What are your experiences, feelings and comments? Does it work for you?>

I received this as a private message, and would like to open it to the forum for better feedback.
So far, we have only used our 16CCD once for a week of dry camping. Since we are rookies, we were conservative. We used the camp facitlities as much as possible. We think the tank size is OK, and I don't think I'd want a bigger holding tank adding the extra weight with it. If you are using full hook-ups, holding tanks are a non-issue.
Please tell us what you think after you see the unit? Thanks

My only thought is that most folks tend to generate a lot more grey water than black. Therefore a full single tank means no toilet and personally that's an issue with me.

One reason we bought a trailer way back in 1982 was the fact that we would have our own bathroom facilities. Too many times we went to campgrounds that were great only to be drug down by the bathrooms.

So if you feel confident that you don't need the separate tanks, then all the more to you. Personally I think when you get into the newer vehicles you should be past the stage where you wash dishes in a tub, which you then have to carry out the door and pitch, in order to save space in the tank for toilet use.

To me its a step backwards to provide a single tank when you are spending as much as you are for a new trailer.

When you're takin' a shower and accidentally fill up the grey tank, you get grey water backing up around your feet. I don't need to go further, do I?

I'll vote for separate tanks.

Having had several gray water floods in my former SOB trailer, I'll vote for separate gray and black water tanks. It sure ain't fun, even when it is just gray water.

At least, the worst a black water tank can back up is contained by the commode.

SOB means "some other brand". The International has separate tanks. You can read out their levels on the monitor panel. No, the tanks on the International never overflowed.
