I would buy a combined tank RV in a heart beat. In the 55 years of camping I've never once had a tank fill to overflowing. By having a combined tank the liquid to solids ratio in the would increase, and a cleaner dump would be had by all.

While not the end of the world, it's bad enough with sink water. I have combined my tanks, with a simple add on valve to get a couple more days boondocking but not day to day.No way.
Have C--- and P-- coming up 2-3" out of the shower pan and see what the DW says esp with that 2 am flush! .. just sayin
I have a sure-fire way to never, ever overfill my combined waste tank - I always run from our on-board pump which is drawing water from our fresh water tank.

Since our fresh water tank is the same size as the waste tank, overfill is not possible.

I know, the obvious questions...Yes, our pump is plenty able to keep up and give us great water pressure and wonderful showers. Yes, we do connect to water and sewer while at a campground. But, I only open the dump valve when dumping, and after I dump I open the city water valve and refill the tank. The whole thing takes about 5 minutes if we're already hooked up.

Kind of old school, but it works for us. Less technology means less to go wrong.

I'm with the others on liking the idea of one tank. When hooked up I don't have one filling up before the others. When Dry camping not much difference. Plus I'd have the San-t-flush on "the whole thing" instead of just the black as it is now.

IMHO


My unit:
Fresh Water Capacity (w/water heater, approx. gal.): 88
Gray Water Tank (approx. gallons): 67/35
Black Water Tank (approx. gallons): 65
