Boondocking aid. (Truck hoist for waste toter.)

Our black tank is only 30 gal and I wanted to be able to spend extended periods beyond parks with dump stations, without tearing down camp, to drive to town.

Enter this,

Gave it the final test today, with a 27 gal toter.

It swivels easily, so you'll want to be fairly level left to right, or have an extra set of hands but it handled to load without issue.

Nice. Clever idea and it would work well with those generators that at 100# are too heavy for most.

As for the tote, I just put mine in the truck empty than use a Flojet macerator pump to transfer waste water from holding tanks to tote via a 3/4" hose.


The flojet pump is a little more expensive than the lift but there are a lot of "imports" on the market now for ~$100 that probably do a satisfactory job.

Yeah, I'm aware of macerators.

Never say never but decided to go this route. At least for now.

Oh man, that is cool! I wish I had that for all the times I rent stuff that weighs 150+ lbs. Or when I swap out pin boxes again. I bet a mecerater pump can't lift a trencher into the back of my truck.

I'll need an electric version, though.
