Oohh...on all my trailers it comes out the back end...appropriately enough ;-)

I use a standard Barker 15 gallon tote and even it it sits lower than the 30. I don't have a problem with it.
How do you get that to the dump station? It must weigh about 120lbs when almost full.

"A pint's a pound the world around." 8 pints per gallon.... 8 x 30lb is 240 lbs!

Gotta drag it with the tow vehicle right? Or pray the dump station is downhill. I gotta bad feeling that getting it downhill wouldn't be a problem but stopping it might be! Blue boy surfing? Yee-Haw! OH-NO Mr. Bill! Whew boy!
Today is a gift, that's why they call it the present.

Get a cap for your sewer dump connection that has a garden hose bib. Leave off the hose bib cap and slide the bluboy under it with the blueboy cap removed. You can then burp the dump valve and let water squirt out the hose bib into the uncapped blue boy. If your outlet points down, this works great. Horizontal exits might require a short piece of garden hose to curve into the blueboy.

No hose required...but ya gotta stop filling the blueboy before it overflows!!!

My 15 came with a metal tow hook. One end attaches to the blue boy and the other end loops over your TV tow ball so you can tow it. Heavy? Yes, but with the wheels and handle I can move it myself for short distances, and two people can lift it into the back of the truck if needed. Still much lighter than the 30!

I usually dig a hole for the blue boy if on flat ground. If I'm lucky and have a drop off, I use a long hose.
