I have been in one spot where it was 45 feet, again I have that much 3" but.. That's ALL So I used the pump and the 50 foot black hose (3/4 inch) and got 'er done.
I had one spot where there was a gray water dump at 74 feet, I do not have that much hose.. thugh I could only dump gray (We tend to need to dump gray more often) so I hooked my 25 foot gray hose and my 50 foot 3/4" Black hose and we made the trip.
I've been in places where the hole in the ground was HIGHER than the outlet on the RV.
Again the pump pumps uphill well
I've been on a site where there was a problem with the sewer and I had to pump next site over.
In short, advantages many.
Wow, I never realized there were so many ill-planned , poorly conceived campgrounds. To the OP, I would try to dump on my way home, if convenient, and skip dumping at the house.
