Any tips for using Flojet?

So we are entering our second year of trailering and have decided we will be spending more time at state parks and COE campgrounds. These campgrounds usually do not have a sewer hookup but do have a dump station. So I have bought a Flojet unit to enable transfer from my holding tanks to a portable holding tank. My idea is to use the tailgate of my pickup to haul the portable tank for dumping, rather than rolling it. Any ideas anyone has would be greatly appreciated.

TIA... MIke

Only this: I have found after a period of non-use the rotor will "Stick" causing me to use a lot of fuses up.

On the bottom of the motor the shaft extends out, there is a slot, turn it with a coin or flat screwdriver in the obvious direction and that will free the thing to work,, Problem is the parts in the pump stick a bit once used

Sure beats tearing it down.

Home is where I park it!

The Thetford models have better wheels and can be towed by attaching to your hitch ball, best that the roads are smooth. Won't work with the 2 wheel models. I tow mine on occasion with my small motorcycle.
The macerator pumps are good for your needs, easy to start and stop the flow.

I have the large 42 gallon Blue Boy with the newer ball bearing steel wheels. Rolls easy. Works well. Well made. Tows easy behind my jeep.

I don't use a Flojet or similar to fill it but plan to do so at some time in he future when need arises.

The FloJet is electric? I read some reviews about it. Mind the duty cycle rating to avoid damaging it, I read where the unit just stopped working due to being run too long.
