that a good idea but it will suck the plastic up to the pump

Ok, just wondering cause some drums have had some pretty nasty stuff in them. Like you I use a lot of paper and plastic. Dishes consist of grill tools, maybe a little silverware and a coffee cup. Very little.

He may have had a brick or something to prevent that. I really didn't pay that much attention, just remember seeing him use it.

In my case, I can connect ~ 5 ft tube to the antifreeze fill port and dip it into a filled 6 gal jug on the ground. I then remove the shower head of the nearby outdoor shower and stick the shower hose end into the fill port. The water is then pumped through the camper and into the FW

This is brilliant! Great tip in using a water pump we already own!
