Boondocking , what to do with gray & black water

I see a lot of talk about battery power, but what does one do with the gray & black water tanks when off the grid?

You get a tote tank for the grey. And then head to the dump station when the black is full.

I use the tote for black and gray.. + I have a 45 gallon fresh water bladder that I can fill and pump into the trailer so it does not have to move till I am ready to leave.

There are lots of dump stations around if you look for them.. Many areas have them at highway rest stops, tourists info centers, pilot/flyingJ etc

Let me know when you're planning to visit southwestern PA, mcfarmall. I want to have my driveway paved before you come.

I tote and Dump. I frequently camp with my in laws, they just leave the valves open and the grey runs on the ground.

If you have two grey tanks like some larger trailers, I see nothing wrong with dumping the bathroom grey on the ground, assuming you are in an area that drains well and is not near water.

As I said I tote and Dump. I dig a hole away from camp and bury it. I worry about the smell and vermin. Black gets hauled to a dump station. Black is slow to fill as we dig a pit toilet somewhere near camp.

It happens.. I just came back from 5 days w/o hook ups.. Being new to the TT world I walked the campground ( after dinner time) to see what others were doing with their grey. Some had portable containers, but lots didn't..I noticed some gate valves were fully pulled out with the sewer hose hooked up draining under their trailer.. Some I noticed just small trickles of water coming directly out of the sewer outlet.
