It works great and does the job fine. I used my at home when I clean my tanks. I have septic tank at the house and dump the tank here. However, I have never use it during any dry camping. I purchase one because I cannot reach house septic tank nor you want to drive over.

I wouldn't buy anything larger than a 20 gallon tank if you're planning to dump it periodically. I ordered a 32 gallon portable tank hoping to empty it about once a,week.
The thing I hadn't considered is that water alone weighs about 8 lbs/gallon. 8 X 32 = really heavy and difficult to manage.

Warranty? There's a warranty?

I've never had to even check into that. Of course I don't fabricate a 500# rack to carry a Harley on the back bumper either

I do have a generator on a GennyGo platform with Safety Struts reinforcing the bumper.

The sticker is there to shed warranty liability due to people not using common sense.

Empty 28g cart is 43 lbs, it is seriously heavy for a piece of plastic. You would think a 'bumper' could support that.

I would but you know how the conversation goes on forums. Everything from the "voids your warranty stickers" to posts saying how bumpers are made out of gum wrapper foil keeps people from applying common sense.

Funny how the factory puts these warnings on, probably by the same guy who installs the heavy spare and mount on the bumper.

Rhino tank

Bought mine a year ago. Have only used it twice, but handy to have when needed. The first time I used it one of the wheels fell off and tank dragged until it had a hole in it. I called the company and they sent me a brand new one. So.. they stand behind their products. Works very well. Store it in my truck bed, but many hang it on their ladder on the rear of the RV.

There's Youtube video on the fix for the wheels. Involves drilling holes in the axle and securing wheels with cotter pins. Obviously a known problem, so not sure why Camco doesn't just fix it at the factory.

After the axle problems arose, CAMCO did re-design the axle ends so that is no longer an issue. My Rhino has the new style.

Good to know. Thanks. Mine was bought about a year ago. Saw the video and got the cotter pin fix done before ever using it.

i have Rhino 21 gal. Works well. very sturdy. Comes complete with all the necessary attachments. As with most of these-the height off the ground of your gray/black valves is usually not much higher than the height of the Rhino when horizontal.
Another words -sometimes you may be trying to have effluent run up hill.
They are heavy when loaded but I did not have a problem lifting up and placing tow bar over hitch. Then it is easy to drive to dump station-go slow.
Additionally you do not need to fill the tank. Maybe just 10 gals or so to buy you a few more days untill departure. That said-I usually parially drain my black tank and then run some of my gray tank to rinse out hose. It ends up full.
