My concern is...correct me if I am wrong, It fills and emptys from the same spot. If so it seems there would be a little extra stuff in the extended hose when filling the tank.
Barrelslime, it does fill and empty from the same spot so there is a little extra stuff in the extended hose when filling the tank. We really only have used ours for transporting grey water so I wasn't too concerned with this. For extended stays you will have to dump the black water also so it would be best to flush the intake with some grey water before disconnecting and hauling. I was concerned with the handle, but after we towed it with the handle I must say it was pretty much trouble free and the handle easily fit over the hitch ball. You have to tow R E A L L Y slow according to the directions. We bought ours when Camping World had a real good sale on them so that minimized the pain of expense.

hello and happy new year's to all.

I am about to invest in a Barker 42 gallon waste tank and from what i have read here and elsewhere, folks recommend replacing with wheels with air tires.

has anyone done this and any particular wheels they'd recommend?

I`ve done this mod on a 22 gallon 2 wheel tote. I used 10" tires/wheels from Harborfreight, and a 5/8'' shaft from the hardware store with 2 holes drilled in the ends and cotterpins as retainers. Here`s a link showing the 4 wheel mod you are considering. I believe the front wheels came from another place and it is mentioned somewhere in the thread. Good luck. -Lee

When it comes to Blue Boy's be sure and get one with a top fill and a side dump. If it is over 15 gal make sure it has front wheels as you don't want to lift any more than that to hook it to your hitch. Some times you have to run water in to rinse all the goodies out. That is what the water hose is for at the dump site.

When I dump a tank I really like a Blue Boy tote to take everything in the tank so I don't have to close the valve untill everything has stopped flowing. I use one twice a week here in Az.

The baker with the side dump valve is the only way to go... I have one other blue one that you have to lift up to dump.... that is real good for the back... and after I took a look at those gray ones.... NOT A CHANCE..I have the feeling they will become very problematic.

Just make sure what ever you get not to over fill (over flow) it

It seems the Barker one doesnt have an auto shut off valve as the Tote claims to have... how do you know when it is getting close to being full?

You can buy a float that goes where the small opening/vent is. Or, you can just take off the small cap and watch with one hand on the valve.
