Have a TT with a few questions on waste totes ~ and guessing here that size matters:
1) Where/how do you store it when not in use or travelling - can it be secured on the A-frame?
2) What is the benefit to the 'wagon' handle vs. drag-bar?
3) Do you use your TV to haul the tote to the dump-station?
4) What features are most desirable?
I'm sure there are many more questions I should ask and welcome your thoughts on those too!

In my quest for an RV WASTE TOTE to accommodate our 30.5 gallon gray and black tanks - I've uncovered 3 vendors: Barker (27844 or 31342), Thetford (40520), and Tote-N-Stor (25609 or 20129). Has anyone come across independent articles reviewing/comparing the pros-and-cons? Rest assured, I am reading user comments found at Amazon - but was hoping for something more informational since this isn't a cheap purchase or fun thing to do.

I leave our tote under the TT or in my truck bed at the CG until I'm ready to use it. Most totes have a handle that just slips over the trailer hitch so you hook up and SLOWLY drive to the dump station. The totes with the dump opening on the bottom (when stood up to drain) seem to be the hardest to completely drain since the opening sits above the lowest part of the tank. Make sure you rinse it out well and add some bleach to kill the odor when you are don with your trip. Even a few cups of grey water left in the tote for a few weeks can smell terrible the next time you use it (don't ask me how I know). Also, lots of people either buy the upgrade models with rubber wheels or replace the plastic wheels with pneumatic wheels. The plastic wheels are hard and offer no cushion when traveling over rough surfaces and produce a loud noise when pulled down the road.
