I just bought a macerator pump but haven't used it yet. That was going to be one of my uses, to put the tote in the bed of the truck to fill. I'm glad to see someone is doing it that way so it's doable. I guess you have to be careful it doesn't overflow. Do you put some of the grey water to top it up and clean the hose a bit?

Some say to strap it to the ladder in the back but it's a hybrid, no ladder.

I use my tote in the bed of my truck, using a macerator pump to fill it. Drive to the dump station, and tip it up to dump, using stinky slinky.....
Don't have a macerator but that's a great idea. My tank fits right behind the 5th wheel hitch in the truck bed.

The cost difference between the 18, which would have required numerous trips, and the 35 was well worth it.

Besides, maybe I can make some extra beer money on the way to the dump station if I dont fill it
Just a thought. I was given a double bike carrier which mounts on the rear bumper. It extends out enough to hang the bike behind the spare. When I moved it to one side and the spare to the other, there was a perfect space between the RV and bike rack to store the tank. With a few mods, like a soft deck to sit on so bolts don't rub thru, this is and ideal remedy for tank toter.
