If you have a stinky slinky youíre fine. If a Sanicon be careful. And remember if itís flush it down if itís yellow let it mello.

I herd that they may be a vacuum breaker in the drain system from rear shower that could be destroyed if the truck has a vacuum system ?
True or false ?

Be safe ... just dump it when it's getting full.

Tanks are vented

Remember, both grey and black are vented to the atmosphere through the roof. Unless there is a blockage there (unlikely) you wonít put a negative pressure on the tanks. The vacuum breakers are installed in drain lines near sinks so the the traps donít get sucked out by the draining liquid.

Steele - what is the caution with Sanicon systems dumping into a honey pot? I am headed to Albuquerque in a month for the Balloon Fiesta and will be using a pump truck at least once. I can bypass the Sanicon using a 4" hose, but am curious as to what I should watch for if I use the regular Sanicon hose system.

"MD-Keith"......I've been using a SaniCon for the past 14 years. Last year, I had to use a pumper truck for the first time. It was very easy. They bought their pump hose to my bay and held it a couple of feet off of the ground. I turned on my SaniCon and they turned on their pump. My SaniCon pumped right into their hose and it was sucked away.

I've used a honey wagon several times without issue over many years and multiple RV.
