Your toilet is raised above the floor, no? That raised step is the black tank. It sits above the floor and empties via the outlet at the rear.

OK I guess we have found the black tank under the toilet. Not very big is it? But NO grey water tank.

2air' I couldn't stop laughing after reading your link. But I'll tell ya, I'm not carrying it in a blue boy or grammas pot!

Brian, the grey tank will happen probably next week. If we cant find one to fit, I wil contact you. Thanks.

That black tank in the back is the only waste tank you have. Your trailer lets sewage from the toilet go into the black tank. Your soapy water from your sinks and tubs goes past the black tank to the ground. You will have to buy a portable tank to put your soapy water in for dumping. Back in the day people just let it go on the ground but laws have changed. Most soapy water is phosphate based and that is bad for streams, rivers and lakes. Algae will explode in phosphate and kill the fish.

I camp at my own property and I let the soapy water on the ground. All it does is fertilize the lawn and make its roots system stronger, and it is good for flower and seed production.
