You could also use the 5 gallon bucket to reclaim some of your grey water and dump it down the toilet to flush out your black.

I would be hesitant as well to hook up my FW system to my black tank flush, I know there is a very remote possibility of contamination, but it's not worth the risk to me. If I can get a pretty good flush at the site using their FW down the toilet, or the reclaimed grey, I'd do that before I would try to hook up the on board FW system to the waste system.

A lot of trailers dont have a black tank flush system on them. Mine dosent have one and havent had on any trailer that I have owned now I do beleive that its a great option and I do wish my new one had the tank flush. Byt I have always used the 5gal bucket system and never had any problems when I am done dumping I put 5gal of water and a packet of chemicals and it sits all winter long no smell and no issues next spring.

OK what about using the proper chemicals in the black tank. That is what these chemicals are made for. If they cost too much. Simply buy a gallon of vinegar. Dump the contents in the toilet. Fill that same jug with water (twice). Dump that in the toilet (while still at home) after you make the drive there and spend the weekend, it will dump fairly clean. Especially if you use the chemicals and vinegar. You can also do the vinegar again (after dumping) and add "at least" 1/2 gallon of RVAF. it will sit fine all winter.
I started with nothing, and still have most of it left

Thanks for all the ideas. I may just try the 5 gallon bucket method.Once I return home I will be able to hook up to house and flush it and dump into septic tank.I just don't wanna leave any solids in there for the cold long trip home

OOOps, I think you misunderstood me. My point was to hook up the water thief to the RVs faucet, not a campsite faucet, then use the on board pump to pull water from the on board fresh water tank. Sorry if I wasn't clear about this.
