Great in the PUP days. Especially since the drain sits higher on the camper. Sounds like a pain when you have a 30 gallon tank to drain.

Well, when at a cg with a relatively convenient dump location, it is nicer to have a blue tank that can fit (or nearly fit) your whole tank. If you are at a location where it is inconvenient (I haven't been in one but have heard) only fill to half way. I just bought a 25 for a little over $100. The 15 is nearly that much.

I have the barker 22 gallon tank. I found a nice little spot to store it behind the fresh water tank on my 23ss. 4 bungee cords no drilling! and it is tight.

We have the 32 U.S. gallon model like in the video that gashog posted, except ours has pneumatic tires so it's much better to tow for a distance. With a bad back, I need a model I can tow rather than having to lift it. We only use it for the grey tank. I had to toss the bobber gauge because it wouldn't allow air to escape the tank so the grey water could fill it. I'd like to figure out a way to secure the hoop that goes over the hitch ball. When going down a hill with a full tank it makes me a bit nervous. Other than that it works well and I'm happy with it. I have enough room in the pickup bed to carry it there.

Nice idea! I'll have to see if our tank will fit under our 23SS in that location.

The cg I stay at most often has a half dozen huge speed bumps between the sites and dump station. I just decided I would rather do a couple trips with the 15 in the truck bed vs slowly towing a bigger tank. So far I have never needed to do a second trip. I do understand the appeal of the larger ones for sure...just haven't needed more capacity in my case.

The idea is not to drain the whole tank but to keep it from getting full. Drain just enough to make it to the end of your camping and then go to the dump station. I do the same thing with one 5 gal bucket.

I have a macerator pump & a 35 gallon tote. The tote goes into the bed of the truck and I pump into it. I had to get an adapter for the tote to make the drain hose longer to reach the sewer connection on the ground. Use it for black and gray water. I have an 8 ft box on the dually, so the tote goes behind the 5th wheel next to the Tgate.

I have a wife and two days. There is no draining enough to get by.
