Wow , that's gonna be a nice tank compartment.
I'd make the grey twice as big as the black ! Unless there's no shower.

Popeye, I'm going to run the black and grey water together into one tank, there will be no shower just the kitchen and lav. sinks, I'm including a built in tank sprayer to make sure the waste tank cleans out. The waste tank will also be a reserve for the TH when I boondock, I'll be putting in a portable Macerator so I could pump from the TH to the Tot'r, that's why I'm putting in as large a tank as I can fit.

Hi Terry; Sounds like some pretty hi tech features you are adding to the Tot'r. Well thought out for sure.

Perhaps you could add the trailer backing feature that Volkswagen is developing for their trailer towing line. Check it out.

But you will need to provide the "Trailer Assist" module with a non-standard engine fuel supply!

Good Afternoon, Gordon, I think that trailer backing assist has been made in the form of a rear steering off a hook and ladder fire engine . Always thought that'd be cool to drive one. I think my real good weather is coming to an end , tomorrow is supposed to be rain all day up to a couple inches, might be in the 50's after that it kinda goes back down. Had to rescue Eleanor today, blew a brake hose, so I went and filled the reservoir with fluid, put a vise grip on the hose and drove it home. Easy fix all done. Got the supports installed on the Tot'r today, with rain tomorrow it'll be a couple of days before I can get back at it.

Terry, with all that weight and the air ride 5th wheel, you may not need air ride on the Tot'er!!! Rail!

Terry,
I was kidding about being at your GVWR. I had figured about 2000#, so the 1800 sounds about right. By the time you get everything into the body, you will be close to 2000# for that too, so it should ride decent with around 4000# of weight on it. You might not need the air ride, but it sure does make a big difference, and the dump feature is nice when hooking and unhooking the TH.
Frank

Good Morning, Rail, I may leave the air ride for an "upgrade" later, I'll need something to do when its done after all . Frank, I knew you where kidding , but it got me curious what all that steel did weigh, its heavy when I move it around!!. It sure would be nice to have an air ride, it'll be figured in later for sure. I can "dump" the air hitch now but it doesn't move that much, about three inches. Its raining heavy today, temps supposed to get into the 50's. Have some shop work to do so I guess it's not wasted.

Hi Terry,

How are you going to run the power cord between the generator on the Toter to the TH? Maybe you've already thought of something like this.

http://m.grainger.com/mobile/product/REELCRAFT-Cord-Reel-8X356?fc=MWP2IDP2PCP

You might be able to find one at a salvage yard.

Rich

Good Morning, Rich, When I'm parked and not hooked up to shore power I can just plug in to the genny with the normal power cord, when I'm traveling I had thought that it might be handy if I could have AC power to the TH, I'm not sure if it would be something that is practical or needed, since I already have solar. Rain should stop today and be in the 40's we'll see if I can get something done today.

Terry,
Knowing you, I don't think that you have ever had a non productive day, even when you are house bound on your bad days, you are either thinking how to do a project or figuring the parts list for the one that you are doing at the present.
Frank
