You could then close both valves before opening the cap but will spill a gallon or so of grey (stand back), but do not open the black until you are dumping whether at his septic or into a tote. Being lazy myself, it would be easier to drag a tote with the truck rather than tear down an move the whole rig. How often a person needs to dump is very very arbitrary with too many variables. The level sensors steps are empty, 1/3, 2/3, and full. Count days until the 1/3 lights the multiply. They are fairly close to reality. Never ever run your black tank over.
My main concern was the bathroom sink or shower emptying into the Black Tank.
I do plan on emptying the gray tank into a nearby cornfield.
According to the specs I'm looking at, my rig has 1 32 gallon Black Tank and a 57 gallon Gray Tank....

The dry weight is in their dreams. The tongue of the trailer had "7,220 lbs" written on it when I picked it up.
If things work out and my friend and I don't get on each other's nerves, I'm thinking about putting in a simplex pump system in order to pump the effluent and the gray water into his septic tank..... 450 feet away. With about a 6 or 7 foot overall climb. And 450' of 2" PVC ain't cheap neither.
But that gets a little on the spendy side. OTOH, staying there on 5 Acres and only paying his electric and mowing the land with his John Deere ain't all that bad of a deal -- If it works out. It should. I see no reason why it shouldn't.
We're so new to this, we don't know what to expect. I tell people, "We don't even know what we don't know"
I'm in SW Florida and I love it overall. But the Summers down here just simply S^(K. And Michigan Summers are beautiful. All three weeks.
So, here we go. I'll keep you updated if I survive. If not......
Thanks for all the tips and I appreciate the thought put into them
