Yes, folks do use them for blackwater. Getting a larger one, at least as large as your trailer blacktank, would prevent messes - 9 gallons of **** in a 5 gallon tank.
If you have been using your portable tank for the gray water, then you already know about having an adequate drop from the trailer into the portable tank and dumping the portable tank into the campground sewer system.
Just like other dumping procedures, you should first dump the black tank from the trailer and then dump the trailer gray tank to somewhat clean the hoses and the portable tank. Most sewer dump stations have water you can use to clean the portable tank a bit more.
