Does the campground not have showers and washing machines?? Tell her if she wants a leisurely, long shower she can use the facilities. Living in an RV you have to make some concessions, and one of them is usually quick showers. Just saying.

If you donít like to see them sitting beside your rig throw a camo tarp over them.
We use them to transport waste and fresh water.

I would hope there is a wash cycle somewhere in between.

You must have missed reading the word (macerator) when you read his post.

Also, I'm sure they use 2 separate tanks for the above question.

I'm still trying to figure out this "black tank" thing..



Why is it called a black tank when it holds brown stuff?

Can get bladders to hook up your dump hose to. Seen them used in some remote campgrounds for the campground hosts. Would easily slide under the motohome.

Washer and showers should be just Gray water. Neighbor gets 55 gallon plastic drums from local car wash, basically free. Store alongside until pumpout comes.
