After a few years of use, even gray water is pretty rank. Ask anyone who has sloshed their shower trap empty on a rough road; then left the camper closed up for a few days.

Have a 5 gallon jug from my water cooler. Can just drain a hose into it.

I can't pick it up with no handle, the bucket is easier to pour out.

My bottles have handles. Culligan style. I like your bucket idea.

Does it almost seal to keep the bugs out? Before the lid I found a mouse even.... Don't ask me how!

You can solve this problem by venting the hose at the discharge fitting. I simply drilled a hole in the top of my hose to let air in and now the water runs downhill as far as it needs to.

You will get fined if they find you draining any tank on the ground. This is a quote from another site:“THE RULE”


Never, never, never dump grey or black water on the ground….especially black water! Black water is raw sewage is a bio-hazard. I’m reminded of the time I was staying in a park and someone dumped their black tank water on the ground. When management “caught wind” of this…they called 911 because they are required to do so by law. Well, about 5 snappy minutes later a HAZMAT team arrived on the scene, all dressed up in their HAZMAT gear, they cordoned off the area and evacuated part of the park so they could clean up the “bio-spill”.

I was looking for grey water disposal solutions today and came across this blog post that includes pictures and thoughts for different types. This person has tried several different methods over the years (including wheeled containers) and settled on 2 Aqua-tainers in a series.

Gray Water Solutions for Your Camper | PopUpBackpacker.com

Saw this one too. This person more or less permanently plumbed their grey water outs. I like it, but I probably won't go to this length yet:

I strap a 5 gallon bucket to the tounge, with a screw on lid. 1" hole in lid and short piece of hose, and doubles as a handy place for wheel chocks when time to go. $20 foldup dolley from menards makes long trips to greywater dump easy.
