    Gypsy Witch/Persephone/RhiannonBoondockers:
    June 3, 2020I'm a single 55 year old female full-time boondocker. When I camp at a place for an extended period of time I hate having to hitch up my TT to go to the dump station. I'm looking into purchasing a blue boy. My waste tank is 24 gallons and maneuvering a bl...  more

      Mark Elliott June 3, 2020 I just read an article about using a macerator pump to dump black/gray water tanks into a 50 gallon drum which is carried on a hitch rack. I plan to use a macerator plus a fresh water tank and carry both tanks in the bed of a pickup so I can refill...  more

      David Leslie Jasper & JoJo June 3, 2020 My thought is to get a portable macerator to pump from the RV dump outlet directly to a portable waste tank placed into the bed of the pickup.  The same macerator pump could be used to pump from the waste tank directly into the RV dump.  Doing i...  more

        David Leslie Jasper & JoJo June 3, 2020 Another idea - Several years ago we attended a Beaver Rally held at the BLM Roadrunner location south of Quartzsite.  Several of the coaches arrived with unemptied waste tanks and needed to be dumped before the weeklong rally concluded.  Well, t...  more

      Fred Gross June 3, 2020 You did not mention what your tow vehicle is.  We use a 5th wheeler for extended boondock camping.  As required I use a macerator pump and a garden hose to pump the waste water into the blueboy that is in the back of the pickup and then drive to...  more

      Robbie & Alice June 3, 2020 Macerator, 50 gallon drum, blue boy, hoses.....who has that kind of extra room?  Our Nature's Head composting toilet was expensive, but there is no hassle, it is easy to use and allows us to stay for extended periods, without the need for extra water...  more

      MRJohnston June 3, 2020 A hitch hauler with a ramp kit would work.  You could cut 2x8 lumber to any desired length (or just buy two eight footers) and store them under your TT.   Search “ramp kit” on amazon.  Ace hardware, true value may also have them. ...  more

      Ramblers June 4, 2020 Have you considered DIY build of a composting toilet? I have see a few that should be really cheap to make. They sell the separator so you can keep the liquid in a separate tank/container and the rest is mostly a box and a bucket from what I have seen.

      Suzan and Art June 4, 2020 I understand in a composting toilet the liquid is kept separate.  What is done with that?

        Ramblers June 4, 2020 It must be emptied in a dump station or some folks empty in a toilet. I think of it as a mini black tank, though there are no solids (black).

      Gypsy Witch/Persephone/Rhiannon June 4, 2020 Yes, I want it so I don't have to tow my entire trailer to the dump station. Just the blue boy.

      John T June 4, 2020 Gypsy, we boondock often, never use public facilities, and like you I wanted to go as long as possible before having to dump the black tank and TWO of us with our system can go close to 14 or so days so for one person you might double that ?? I only have ...  more

        David Leslie Jasper & JoJo June 4, 2020 Our coach has 58-gallon black and gray tanks.  We have never filled the black tank before the gray tank gets full.  And by the time the gray tank gets full, the fresh water tank (100 gallons) is close to empty anyways.  We can go for about ...  more

    The self-closing design on the R.V Bug Stop keeps the slider on the R.Vs screen door closed. Installation is simple and requires no tools. just pull off the film from the tape and attach it to the horizontal rail under the slider. no more yelling at someone for leaving the slider open. with no bugs coming in you can sit back and relax thanks to the R. V. Bug Stop.
