certainly cheap enough...but alas, it is just a tad too big in 2 of those dimensions. I'll poke around and see if they have one thats just a little bit smaller. (frame rails are 24" on center...24.5=too big).

proof of concept, though. you can fill a tank from the bottom, as long as whatever is draining is above the top of the tank.
Yes, it will work. (As you just explained)

This is for the same reason that a pump that is 150' deep in a well doesn't have to pump 150' of head pressure. Only the difference between the water at the surface and the height where it exits the pipe.

Or, hold your garden hose ends up off the ground. Pour water in one end (slightly higher), it will flow through the hose and rise back up and flow out the other end.

Clear as mud??

I need to replace a couple of crossmembers anyway and i have the trailer completly apart, so for me its no big deal to make the room to fit the tank. for a buck and a half i'll move the frame crossmember

More pics...

Here are some more pics of my grey tank.

The first one is the kitchen sink drain into the top of the tank. The left side of that tee goes up to the roof to the vent.

The next pic is the lines under the trailer running to the tank. The line on the left is from the tub and bath sink into the tank. The missing one on the right is to the dump valve.

The last pic is the tub and sink drains tying together and running toward the grey tank.

well now that i think i have the grey figured out what is needed to make the fresh water tank work.... i know the fill will hit the tank, thats the easy one but, how does the pump attach and work along with the water lines coming out of the tank... any of you guys have any photos of that?
