portable waste tank storage

For a lot of us taking a portable waste tank for use when we are camping for more that four or five days is a pain in the you know what. I figured out a fix. My 335 has a extended frame behind the gas tank. There is enough room to store your portable tank on wheels there. I made a simple arm to raise and lower it down. This space is like they designed it for that its the perfect height width and length. I will post some pics this weekend when we are camping.

I sold my 35 gallon one when I got the motorhome, I just couldn't see my self going to the trouble when it was faster to bring in slides, close awning, retract jacks and make a dump run. I also get to fill up my water tank.

I have a 27 gallon tank mounted in my frame as well. I used angle iron to hold it up, but it is a pain to take out. Looking forward to your mounting pix. I only use it a couple times per year, but so handy when you need it.

Here is pic i promised frame was made from 1 1/4 angle iron made it in couple hours but by taking two 3/8 bolts loose the bracket pivots down and waste tank slides down very easy up and down and the frame width and length opening seems like it was made for it.

Thanks for the photo. I didn't have the arm between the two crossbars so mine doesn't pivot like yours. Maybe time for a retrofit based on your design to make loading/unloading easier.

very NICE , I thought about storing my portable tank in that spot but did not design anything yet. Your idea and application looks really good.
