Hello. Anyone have any tips for emptying the waste and water tanks? I bought a 35 gallon tank from Camping World and plan on using that for waste. I don't have a big enough vechicle to haul the camper as well as thought it would be easier just to leave the camper sit and take the 35 gallon waste tank on the trailer in order to empty it.







Both tanks are about 3/4 full (according to Lights on gauge) so I better do it soon.



I have a 32QB Zinger. Thanks in advance!

Be careful, and don't get any on your shoes!

Sorry, I couldn't help it. The devil made me do it.

Dump your black first. If you have room in your portable tank dump some grey in it as well. Then go back and dump your grey to wash out your line and somewhat rinse your portable tank. I hope you use lots of water in your flushes for black otherwise your portable tank may be hard to dump. If I were you I'd only go to half on black in the future before dumping.

so are you sitting at a seasonal site? Do they have someone that comes to dump tanks for you? lots of water in black tank is important. you may want to add more water before dumping. Also black flush tank after emptying. Remember to add a few gallons of water to stay in black tank after flushing/dumping. Always dump black then grey tank. use the geo method in your tank.Edited by: anaro

35 gallons - at about 8 lbs. per gallon that is allot of weight (about 300 lbs). Black first then the gray tanks. I have a 18 gallon unit that I use. Fill it - hook it to the ball hitch on the truck and take it to the dump station.

Looks like you have this: http://www.campingworld.com/shopping...-2-wheel/70674

Be careful dumping to it - throttle your waste valves - especially the black tank . Remember there is still waste in the lines after the dump valves are closed.

Yes, I have the 35 gallon one. What do you mean by throttle? Also, do you use the Geo method? Anyone else use the Geo method?

I use it and it is a very popular method. do a search on it. I used to use chemicals but transitioned over and have had great success with it.

X2 on the Geo Method (https://sites.google.com/site/cbruni/) Works great no harsh chems and no odor issues.
