Pump it into the arroyo.

i suppose you could put it into the septic tank via the cleanout, but i don't think the trailer would make the turn to get close to the inlet.

it's uphill from where you could reasonably back your trailer up to. i only got an A in fluid dynamics, but i'm pretty sure poop doesn't flow uphill without a lot of help. no, you may not borrow my pump from the cistern.

Close to 43' with two axles .... it's built pretty lightweight.

Smart not having any hookups. Some lowlife with a trailer would come visit and you'd never get him outa there.

Just open the gray water valve slightly when driving down the road. It will evaporate so fast on the hot pavement, no one will know.

pretty sure Scooter is no longer 30 years old and living in the basement. but where he could park is downhill of the house, so that's like an outdoor basement.

Not sure when I'm leaving. I need a couple more months to make sure my business is going to run smoothly in my absence.

I'll head west to start out, then make my way back over this way. I'll let you know, Sandy!

I'm so looking forward to this trip!

What? Couldn't find a bigger one?

Looks bad-ass Sea. All you need is a piece of 2" Stainless Steel pipe for a stripper pole right in the center of the living area and you're good.

I said the very same thing to my handyman this afternoon. We were looking over the rig.

They make a septic drain that connects to water and it pulverizes solids and you can drain the black tank with a long water hose. I cannot think of what it is right now but I will come back when I do. You could sure use it and it is not expensive.

Found it. It is a macerating system.

That's an interesting system. I've seen the ones that include an electric motor which mounts in the RV. Those are considerably more expensive.
