kc8lvy's photos show the most common way that I've seen used on a permanent setup trailer,..... plus, its still a trailer, if your plans ever change, you're selling a regular trailer not a modified unit that would only be useful to a much smaller group of buyers,..... that's just my 2cents worth, best of luck on whatever you decide to do...........
X2. Can't imagine permanently limiting marketability for that day when I no longer want the trailer

You may have just Jinxed yourself . now it will back up .lol some say septic tank never need pumped that is until they have a back up , eventually solids build up that can not be digested by the system . not a matter of if but when .

Right on northstar,,, sounds like a very expensive disaster about to happen !!! Very possible the tank is unpumpable @ this point ???

I did go extreme on the trap I should of used 45's instead of 90's but it works good and does not clog. I always let my black tank fill between 3/4 to full before I dump then always flush it good then I let my grey waters fill up a couple of days before I dump and that washes out the trap and pipe.
We used to get some sewer flies but since I put in the trap no more flies and no more sewer smell.
