Shooky tank

Just wondering how long is the longest time that went by before you emptied your black tank?

Are you asking how long before emptying the black tank and it's sitting in storage?

Don't understand why you do not want to dump at the end of stay? We dump both black and gray tanks at the end of each stay, both to keep the tanks clean and to reduce towing weight.

Just wondering, cause I am planning on going boondocking, but it may be a few weeks before I could empty it. If it will not work that long, I wont use the bathroom that weekend.

If the place you are staying does not have a dump station, check out rvdump.com for dump locations.

There are going to be a lot of variables in how long it takes to fill up a black tank. Different campers have different size tanks.

There is the size of the tank itself (how many gallons does it hold), how often are 'deposits' made (which can vary greatly depending on your choice of meals), how many campers are making deposits, the size of the deposits, and the amount of water used to flush with.

About a month - maybe 5 weeks. In storage though, not being used during that time-frame.
