One thing I did not find was and I hope you forgive my ignorance. But you hook this directly to your main line and all grey and black water goes in it and then monitor the indicator on the portable tank correct? You are bypassing your units holding tanks?
Parks are generally agreeable to allow this?
Jim, the blueboys are easy to use and we boondock almost 90% of the year and have used these for years and have had no problem.
You will still want to use your holding tanks. How we used ours was to wait till your holding tanks are almost full, bring your blueboy over to the dump outlet, use a short hose from the outlet to your blueboy, begin filling and as the fill indicator pops up, shut off the flow to the blue boy. Take blueboy to dump area and dump. You may have to do this several times to empty your holding tanks depending on tank and blueboy size.
We used our blueboy for both black and grey water- waste is waste.
You may want to practice with clear water once or twice to make sure you have your shi---- I mean your act together at first in case of any "failure to perform as advertised" incidents.
If you are boondocking in the same place for an extended time, using the blue boy beats moving the trailer each time you need to dump.
