Does the pump handle what would be gravity fed I assume somewhat large inflow without unexpected things happening.

Having the blue tank in the TV bed would certainly be handy instead of dragging it around the CG to the dump station.

I haven't used it expressly for your purpose. Some CG's don't allow you to run hoses to refill your fresh water so I do the 5 gallon pail with the pump thing. I imagine it would do fine for your needs.

Flojet rv waste water pump

For three years I have used the 12 volt flojet waste water pump which hooks to the trailer sewer outlet. I only use it for grey water and use it to pump into a 70 gallon tank in the back of the pickup. It doesn't take long to pump 70 gallons. I have used it for black water once but I would hate to have the pump plug up when using it for black water.

It has a fuse in the handle and will blow the fuse if you run the pump dry. Many people think they have burned up the motor when it is only the fuse.

Just mount a regular rv water pump to the blue tank and plug the pump into the tv. I would take all the screens etc out of the pump.

Blue tank pump

Have had exact same problem in the past with sewer discharge not easily accessible What I have done is use the sewer cap with garden hose hooked to outlet and always had enough water pressure to fill blue tank at front of camper. Little slow but cheap setup.
