Hey there. Newbie here, this is my first post to Airforums. My wife and I bought a 1978 Airstream Sovereign
(Center bath) over the summer and are planning on hitting the road with our 2 young boys and traveling full time while my wife takes the occasional travel nursing assignment once I complete a total renovation. I have been lurking on this site for months and the information I have found here has been invaluable.
So far I have the trailer completely gutted and am preparing to remove the shell using gantry's hopefully this weekend to get to work on repairing frame rot and installing new sub floor.
My first question on this forum has to do with the holding tanks. I have not been able to locate the info I'm looking for on these forums. We will be installing a composting toilet (either Airhead or nature's head) so I will need to convert the black tank to a grey tank (at least I think so). I'm assuming I will need to ditch the black tank and purchase a new tank but I'm not sure.
Lot's of questions here:
-Will we need two grey tanks or should I be adding more fresh water storage?
-If I need two grey tanks, how do I go about converting black tank to grey tank?
Hopefully this question is not too generic.
I would add photos but apparently it's not as easy as it sounds. I will have to research that next.
