Looks like a garbage disposal?

I use the Thetford tote and never had issues with wheels as mine where solid. Bought it years ago when things where built to last. Ya just don't drive 30mph to dump station with it hooked to truck. slow and easy. Later RJD

My Barker broke as I was speeding along at 2 or 3 mph. 😄 I was actually just getting rolling, but I was on old unlevel asphalt with some gravel scattered around. Caught a rock just right and the plastic wheel busted.

I have a clear elbow in front of the pump and from what I see, the "solids" come right out. I only use the pump at campgrounds not having a full hookup.

Also, I make sure to give my black tank a good flush out at the next full hookup location.

We also use the campground facilities as much as is practical when we don't have a sewer hookup.

BTW, My brother has a two year old 40' fiver that has never had a "solid" in the black tank .... That's too much for me, but it's his outfit.

Thanks raytwntrvlr, sounds like you like your system. I had wondered about using the Flojet pumping into a larger tank in the bed of my truck, but so far have not seen anyone at a campground using that. Do you have the Flojet pump, or something else? What do you use in your truck bed?

Hi Baldicon,

I am very pleased with my setup. I have a Barker two wheel 26 gallon tank in the truck. Mostly it just sits on the tailgate as I pump into it. I went the cheap route on the tank since I knew it would never be used as a "tote". Also I didn't want the tank so large that it would be too much weight to tip up.

I have both a 25 and 50 foot 3/4 inch rubber hose that I could hook together if I needed to. I shopped around to be sure the fittings were also 3/4 inch. Many so called 3/4 inch hoses have 5/8 inch fittings. Obviously this hose is dedicated to this use only.

A nice feature of the pump is that there's a water inlet that will flush out the pump and hose when finished. It will actually suck from a pail if you don't have a water hookup.

I had to make up a set of ten gauge 25 foot extensions for the wiring. I decided against a hard wired solution and just use alligator clips.

With the pump setup, I can even run the hose into the basement toilet if I need to empty the tank while in my driveway.

I have used the same setup with two trailers now and it has worked just as I hoped. A nice, clean, no spill solution when you don't have a sewer hookup.

BTW.... Yes, it is a Flojet

Hope this helps.

Looks like a "Super HD Macerator Pump" Hooks right to the Sewer RV outlet and discharges into a 5/8 garden Hose,pump Up hill over several Campsites to the nearest Sewer Dump! A used Disposal can be adapted for under 20.00$ Youroo!! Very nice for Site's that have just "W & E" and sewer dumps within 150-200' away!

Thanks again raytwntrvlr, I'll definitely look into this option. Getting too old to drag the Barker (same as yours) around.
