I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions of how to dry camp for longer periods of time when it comes to the black waste water tank. Where our trailer will be sitting for a few months is fairly difficult to get in and out of(putting it mildly). I would prefer not to have to leave the site each week to find a dump station. I see there are "totes" that can be used but I would think they would be too heavy to lift on to the truck to take away. Has any body used these? Thanks for your help.

My tote has a handle to hook over the receiver hitch ball and slowly tow it to the dump station.

You can get a Macerator pump to pump the black tank contents up into a tank in the bed of your pickup.

Thanks guys. The closest dump station is 28 miles away so the macerator is definitely the way to go. Looking on the Camping World website I see they have both the macerator and the totes available. We will be visiting the NH store in the near future so hopefully I can solve the problem then.

28 miles, guess towing it behind the tow vehicke isn't an option. Macerator pump and a tank in the truck bed is going to be your best option.

You might check with the campground or another nearby campground. They may have a honey truck service available.
