We have 2 septic tanks on the farm and we just dump in one of those which is not often. So far so good. Gray water is only bath or kitchen which to me is no big deal. People tent camping are always throwing their dish water out on the ground which to me is the same as my gray water tank.

We live in a subdivision and have about an acre with a well and septic.

We keep/store the trailer on the side of the shop in the backyard. We bought a Flow Jet macerator from CW and love it. Rigged the pump to run off the battery and it's easy to setup so if we have company they can use "the guest house" or we can cleanup after a trip.

I've been looking at one of these. Glad to hear that it works well for you. How old is yours? How has it held up to your use?

We've had it a couple of years, we haven't had any issues with ours. It's nice to have if you aren't going to use the trailer for a month or two you can really clean the black tank. I just put the hose into the lid of the 1st septic tank and a little while later the sprinkler comes on in the back yard.

We don't use it a lot, mostly when someone stays with us or if it going to sit. We primarily dump and rinse at the last RV Park we go to.

As for the macerator pump, we've had the same one for at least 15 years that we use on our 30 year old Wilderness trailer that is pretty much permanently parked at a membership campground. Always does the job of getting the spooge from the black water tank to about 60 feet to a tote that I can take to the RV dump nearby.

It helps to have an 18 inch section of clear 3/4 inch hose connected to the discharge hose so you can be sure the spooge is getting pumped. Also best to have a clear 45 degree elbow on the 4 inch hose for the same reason.

Had a PVC line run from the RV parking pad to the septic tank. Also put in a 30 amp service and a yard hydrant. It's really nice to not have to detour by the local state park to dump on the way home.

I add precast concrete tank at the end of driveway when I redid my driveway. I was planning ahead because I want to buy a trailer. I always dump at the campground, but when I get home I like to fill up the tanks with water and soap to really clean them out. Just open the port and put in the hose. Never smells

I put a cleanout just short of where my home sewer runs into my aerator station for just this purpose.

I added a drain clean out when we went from septic to sewer so I could dump tanks at home. It is. It used often but can be a real convenience when needed. I would like to add a 30 or 50 amp service in my front yard.
