The campsite I go to, it's a county beach. They cut the ends off of the hose, so you can't hook it to the black tank flush. I guess they try and get people out of there quicker. Lines can back up some on sunday.

We just received our Sewer Solution from Amazon earlier this week. Will set up some 1" pvc pipe running from RV pad to sewer clean out on other side oh house. Plan to test it later this week. Less expensive than a macerator, but uses a lot of water.

Garbage disposals can be had for $40. That is a inexpensive solution. I can just hook up a PVC drain in the garage and 50 ft of hose bob is you uncle..Thanks youroo

Since I can't dump at home, is it OK to let the black and gray tanks 'marinate' for 3 weeks or so until we get to the campground with dump station/hookups?

My other options are to pay a honey wagon to come to my house to pump it or pay local campground to let me pull in and dump there, both options I have used in the past, but expenses I would like to avoid if possible.
If you have plenty of water in your black tank and add a sufficient amount of one of the many RV black tank treatments that contain enzymes you will not have a problem when you dump and immediately refill the tank 1 time and dump again. The enzyme products do work. JMO

We have the same maserator pump and dump thru 100 ft of 3/4 inch hose. Works like a charm and have a threaded end at the sewer clean out to connect it to. Sure don't miss the many trips with the turd toter.

Ima give you old school tank flush 101. first, make sure your hose to fitting connection is darn good, yer life is depending on it. hook up sewer hose and dump. as last remaining effluent drains, lift hose end and begin filling with water. after filling for a bit...stop filling and lift several times to push water back into tank in a good "gashoosh" fashion. now, the tricky part. stuff hose down drain and clear before the surge gets ya. do this a couple times. you can pull the hose back a little to check the color to see how your progressing. let drain, pop hose loose and give a little rinse. if you can do it without getting any on you..you now a pro and not a stand in for robin williams...
