I use tote-n-stor 15 gallon use to use a couple of 5 gallon jugs but got tired of emptying it ever day. The 15 gallon suits me when dry camping I know that when its filled I need to refill my water tank. At state parks or hooked to shore water I only need to empty it before leaving after a weekend.

I was going to use a plastic gas can, but I wasn't sure if it work. I did not know about Aquatainers until now

Aquatainers/gascans are fine ... no issues, much smaller to empty .. and after all ... we all only have a max of 26 gallons of water ... unless of course you are hooked to a water outlet.

Relative to gas cans, aquatainers lying about don't scare the local constabulary.

most campgrounds prefer people to empty grey water into a container than on the ground ... so most likely you will not have any problems with a gas can or two .. i have seen worse ...
depending on how many times you like to empty .. and if you like to tow your waste water to a tanking area .. aqua-Ts are a great start.

happy camping ... d-mo

For my pop-up, I used a 90-degree fitting and then just drained our sink water into a 5-gallon bucket. I'd carry it to the bathhouse and dump it in a toilet. Our camper potty was the cassette kind and I'd drive the cassette to the dump station as needed.

I had the thetford. It is very heavy and not easily stored. We only used if a few times with our pop up because it was just much easier to get full hook up and yes we were in the middle of the big rigs, but I was set up before they could park.

I thought about a 'turd hearse' but the fact that getting one big enough to empty the entire grey tank or black tank would cost big $$ and be heavy as hell to lug across unimproved terrain up to the truck to drive to the dump station was just not worth the investment. As somebody puts it...'your mileage may vary' Good luck.

The cassettes are the best for our small campers. Easy to work with and unlike holding tanks, they can be emptied at the bathhouse or at home. I do miss having one in my Aframe.

The hose normally extends into the Aquatainers but I'm parked on a hillside this time.
What did you use for the hose attachements to the grey water opening. Wondering how i can set this up myself. Sizes of connectors etc would be beneficial.

Thanks
