I was thinking about this mod my self. Does the tank roll better in gravel? I had even thought about buying one of those heavy garden wagons to haul it on. Some CG's I've stayed at have speed humps between me and the dump station...

Yes, as a matter of fact where the tote was located was on ground that had been rained on a couple of days(on gravel & dirt). The pnuematic tires I purchased from Harbor Freight, and the front tires from Graingers (a 300 lb. rating) rolled along easily to my pickups' hitch.

Many years ago, we had a B-747 upper deck lavatory that would not dump. after a few days the aroma was getting to everyone, and the Captain refused to fly the aircraft until the lav was fixed. During the next hour several attempts were made to open the clog without success. Finally as a last resort it was decided to pressurize the aircraft with the dump valves open.
A large dumpster was positioned under the open valve and the pressurizing was started. If anyone has been to the zoo and watched the elephants for a while, you can picture what happened next. Only a portion of the effluent actually made the dumpster. This became a major cleanup effort (pre epa) and was a sight I will never forget.

Do you still have the receipts?
I am sure others (like me) with the same tank would love to know which tires to buy and any mods you needed to do to the axles.

Idk about you all, but me and my DH watch the people at the dump station in front of us and have bets on if they are going to wash their hands or not.
I always bet 'no' and usually win because the majority of people we have seen finish dumping, then get right back in the truck and drive away..... :-0

I use surgical gloves and keep a bottle of that hand sanitizing stuff in my truck. I was working on a septic system at a house I use to live in and got a staff infection on my arm. Not pleasant. I don't take chances with that stuff.

It finally happened to me.... I pulled up to the dump station this weekend to leave and there was a fella backed up close, dumping with no hose. His wife was standing close by with the water hose "helping" things down the concrete to the hole in the ground.
DW and I both just shook our heads. I got out and asked him if he needed a hose to borrow, that I would gladly let him use mine and he informed me no hoses were needed with this type of dump station. I politely pointed to the sign next to the dump site and showed him the step 1 and 2 on the instructions on how to use the station.
1. connect sewer hose to RV securely
2. place end of hose in waste receptacle before opening valves.

We decided not to empty the trailer there, didn't want to walk around in his freshly dumped stuff. Ours will just have to sit in our tanks another couple weeks until we get out again.

Thats why I made a 4" clean out just out side our house by the driveway in the main sewer line now I can dump when I get home

I still dump at a dump station before leaving but I "clean" the tanks at home.
