Extending grey water capacity

Hi,
I have a 12 gal. grey water tank on my HW27SC and wish to increase my usage. Has anyone used some type of pump to transfer the grey water to another type of tank in their pickup bed?
Thanks for any input.

For state parks w/out sewer hookups I bring-along a 42 gallon Barker waste tote. The tote has wheels & a handle that fits-around the hitch on my truck. When it is full I just slowly tow it behind my truck to the dump station.

Since your TT only has 12 gal. capacity, you can leave it under your TT with gray valve open for longer showers, etc...

And then, we have a 42 gallon FW bladder to transport more FW to our TT when we are not close to a spigot... Since we have a fiberglass cap, I just place the bladder on top of our cap & fill-up with FW on the way back from the dump station.

Thanks for your quick reply. I am trying to avoid the tote solution if possible.

I have a Flojet Rv Waste pump that pumps into a 35 gallon tote in the back of my dually. FloJet RV Waste Pump Kit - Xylem 18555000A - Drain & Flush Systems - Camping World

SO what we have done in state parks is to use a small bucket-ish container in our sink to collect grey water - we would then transfer this to the Black tank via toilet. It's not perfect but it helps off load some of the dish cleaning grey water.

Gotta put it somewhere though, if not a tote designed for waste, what will you use?

flojet

I use the flojet waste pump and a 45 gallon flexible bladder from camping world. The bladder easily fits back into its original box so it doesn't take much storage room. The bladder rides pretty well in the back of the pickup.

Can we get the source of that FW bladder? Exactly what I've been looking for to bring more H2O while boondocking.

I use a tote now, but also would use the bucket into the toilet method as well to get a bit more out of the tanks.
