Is there a power source available at or near the 2 holer?
No, generally not. I camp mostly at FS sites.. basic accomidations.. a pad for the trailer and a water spigot every few sites.

Flush toilets if you are lucky... pits more likely.



A modification of Donnas .pdf would work. You could slink the sewer hose into the pit and not have to worry about spilling.

Rustic CGs that have two-holers generally don't have any 120VAC power nearby and may not even have running water except for a long-handled manual pump.

Do the same thing you did when you had the 13'.

I had a porta potti in the 13, and the thought of getting another one for "emergencies" has occurred to me. However, there really isn't any place to store it. Thats why the thought of using the pp holding tank occurred to me. It is pretty much set up for this.

My first-born took the toilet out of his camper, covered the hole and set a Porta-Potty in the bathroom where the toilet had been. His black and gray water was piped into one tank, so that gave him more storage for gray water.

I also have been looking for a container to empty Black water into.REASON---On the 2004 Trillium the toilet tank and dump valve are on the door side.I found it hard on first time out to dump as i found i had to go into dump area the opposite way of everone else.I need a very flat type of container to dump into if i ever get caught with full black tank.I also don't have much clearance from bottom of drain to ground level.

Chester, about the curb-side dump port...

Most of the dump sites I've seen can be used in the opposite direction; it seems to me like this could be a problem only if it were busy... or when you forget which side the valve is on!

The mascerator pump idea would work for you, too: get one mounted to the fitting which goes on the dump outlet (they come this way, no custom fabrication required), and pump around to the other side. This also handles the occasional need to make stuff flow uphill. The pumps are normally 12VDC; presumably you would install a 12V outlet for it; it would mount it on the battery box, rather than cutting into the egg shell. When you don't need the pump, just use the regular hose, since the trailer's plumbing remains unmodified.

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.

Hey, don't thank me yet... you haven't seen the price of those pumps!

FloJet pump Cdn$275
Jabsco pump Cdn$253

FloJet RV Waste Pump Kit (this one has the pump on the fitting to mount directly to the dump outlet) US$225

The FloJet website lists their pump, and a data sheet with instructions for use.

There may be much cheaper sources of those pumps... I just linked what I could readily find from widely available sources to give a rough idea, and illustrate the mounting method of the last version shown. Coast (Go-RV.com) can be double the cost of other sources on some items, and Camping World has become infamous in this forum for inflated prices.

I like George's set up. One minor enhancement I would make would be the addition of a bladex waste valve. This way when tilting or readying to dump the portable tank you can get it into position and hose in place THEN pull the handle and discharge.

I'm not a big fan of open containers of raw sewerage waiting for me to put the cap on.
