This week the campsite has a fall away slant. It would be easy to hook up either the slinky or the hose and let it drain but we're leaving today.
Raising the AS on blocks might be another viable solution. We break camp today and go back to the other state park with mostly level spots. Dropping the tongue and using the hose on the last spot at that state park seemed to work well. Changing out the stabilizers for levelers is something to consider but not when we're on the road. Most of my tools are back home.
Is it worth it to use the portable? We can go about 5 days before gray water is full. If we're leaving in a day, we just dump water into the black tank. Last year we had to keep breaking camp and that's a lot of work so we opted to try the portable solution this year. Like anything new, it takes time to figure out what works best. I use the portable only for gray water. Black never fills all the way but if it did, we have the camp's bathroom.
Even with the initial problems I managed to reduce our tank to half, giving us another 3 days. That got us to the end of our stay at that camp and we emptied at the dump station. I made a couple of trips to the dump station because we were only maybe 100 yards from it, down a paved road. I've seen people pull them behind the TV using the hitch ball, carry them on a hitch receiver tote, pull them behind a bicycle and walking them. I have a folding 2-wheel hand truck. I'm going to try using that next time with a full 15 gallon tank. We'll be about 150 yards from the dump station.
Most places don't allow gray tank dumping. During my initial attempt some leaked out and the smell that came from the portable, whew! I sure would not want to stay anywhere they allowed it and I don't want to leave a stinky mess for the next people.
