Thanks for the info. I agree a P/U would be ideal. Can't or won't change that now so I guess the tub it is. I will just be sure to clean it and dry it good before carrying it through the camper because I don't want to mop anything up grey water or not. I will be sure to never dump the black water into it, as soon as I started reading that story I new you were going to say it ended up on the ground. I had a good laugh, thanks!

I certainly appreciate the tip about the tow option because I am sure it would be a monster to get it to a dump station if it is much over 20 gallons. And as for most state parks I have found in SC they usually (if on a lake especially) do not have sewer hook up, so we would always carry it with us.

One last thing, any problems with it banging around in the tub? Do you put anything around it to stop that from happening?

Thanks again! I am really enjoying this forum you all are very helpful.

Next time, try standing the tank on end, with the handle up. The inlet will be below valve level, and it is easier to pull back slightly to roll it, than having to pick it up off the ground.

My tank is a 25 gallon "flat" tank that has 4 wheels with the inlet at the end with the larger wheels on the sides. The opposite end has two smaller wheels under the middle that are on the pivot for the handle. It is like a flat wagon. The inlet is on top. If I stand it on end, all of the gray water would run out on the ground. I'll try to photo it tonight.

Another idea is to use two 10 gal tanks instead of a 22 gal tank. At alot of campgrounds the dumpstation may be a mile or two from the campsite on gravel and washboard roads. Blue tanks usually have cheap plastic wheels. You can pick the 10 gal tanks up and put them in your TV to the dumpstation.

Thats the one we use also.
Easy to 'hitch' up to bicycle or scooter.
If close enough to station, can pull by hand.
Tank stays flat on ground, so no lifting.

Liked the story above about the late night smells...sounds like RV the movie.

Well, for the update.
We bought the 25 gallon tote and store very manageable size. Fits in the tub just fine. Do any of you do anything to anchor it down to keep it from banging around?

Try a scrap of carpet, old blanket, old towels, or scraps of foam rubber.

We carry ours in the back of our pickup. Our blue tank is small.... maybe 10 gallons. I can handle it as long as I don't have to lift it up when it is full. I would rather empty frequently than carry so much around. Works for us. We try to conserve water while on the road.
