Black tank

How difficult is it to remove the black tank and put in a composting toilet?

Do you really need to remove the tank? Empty, it's weight is neglegible. All you'd have to do is empty and clean it out real well. And, while I've not done the mod myself, from what I've seen on YouTube, the Composting Toilet is just installed (with some modifications) at the location of the original toilet.

Instead of removing it, why not tie it into gray tank to increase that overall capacity.?

True!

No real special plumbing required. Buy one of the gate valves that connects to the sewer connection and use that as your new main valve. Leave both of your original valves open and the grey and black tanks are combined.
