I've only had to use it once, but I kept two of the blue "aquatainers" I got at wally world when I traded in the popup. Pick up one of those and a six foot "leader hose" and one of those sewer connection adapters with the garden hose fitting on it. All can be found at Wal Mart. If you fill up the grey tank, put on the adapter, screw the hose to it, and drain into the container / tote. Drive that down to the dump station and empty it.

Would be nice if there was a way to dump gray into black in cases like this , lol. I think I'll do as stated above by a few , use bathroom with lairs of water and chemicals and use the bath house. Thanks for the tips .

3 Nights & 5 people:
I suggest using the campground shower instead.

Quick question though, how do you usually handle the black tank at full hook up sites? How often do you dump it? How full is it when you dump?

As for the gray tank, don't be that guy that dumps it in the site. Either pull up chocks and take the TT to the dump station or get a tote for the gray water tank.
We have a 28 gallon black water tank, and two of us find it registering full in two or three days. Some models have the bathroom sink draining into the black water tank so your results may vary...

2 of us can make a 40 gallon black tank last a week. Kitchen gray water will last. Shower close to 5 days. Using navy showers.

That's pretty good, Memorial Day weekend we had to empty the gray twice . The black was pretty empty and we used it a lot just wouldn't fill.

We dry camp all the time.
We can go a couple of weeks before having to dump our 25 gallon black tank.

The 25 gallon gray tank is a different story. 5 days is about max.
That's what we use the tote tank for.

When taking a shower at the campground shower house, always wear flip flops or water shoes.....

I guess everyones bathroom habits are different. Still 2 people filling a black tank in 2-3 days seem quick unless the sink does drain in there. To each their own and I guess that is why they have so many options in floor plans and tank configurations so everyone can pick what they want.

My bathroom sink and kitchen sink drains into my galley gray tank and the bathroom shower has its own gray tank.

Some campgrounds have a truck called the "honey wagon" which can come to your site and cart away your tank contents.
