Black water tank

Does anyone know if it is possible to install a larger black tank on an 195rb, unfortunately the tank only holds 9 gallons, so I have to haul around a portable tank

thanks in advance

My first TT had only one tank for everything. I had another added for grey, leaving the original for black.
Get a spec sheet for tanks with dimensions.
Find one that will fit the space you have and go to it!

and how many days worth of deposit is that..assuming plenty of water used?

We come from marine portable toilets and none are nine gal.. about two was the most and it did about 10 people for two days. But that is a different animal

We have the same unit and probably boondocking for most of six weeks. We may bring a set of wag bags and toilet seat on a bucket for emergency.

Both well used. Now up to 170 nights camping and 40,000 miles on the TT since purchase.

I've adjusted my waste management habits lately, and it's made a big difference in the amount of waste I can fit into my black tank.

First, I no longer allow the TP to go into the tank. It was quite a psychological adjustment for me to make this change. I use a large, steel coffee can, lined with a plastic produce bag from the grocery store, to contain the "used" TP. Now that I've done it this way for a while, the "Gross!" factor has subsided. And anyway, is it any different than storing dirty cloth baby diapers in a container?

Second, for the most part I use no extra water to flush. #1 first, then #2, then flush it down. If needed, I use a little of the used washing water I collect in my kitchen sink container to rinse the bowl. After it's clean, I spray the bowl with my home-brew disinfectant spray (water, Dawn, Clorox), which keeps things clean and odor-free.

I can go (literally!) for two weeks now without filling my 33 gallon black tank. And the lack of using the recommended "lots of water" doesn't seem to make any difference at dump time. Everything slides right out the dump hose with no problems. I think the main reason for using lots of water is to help flush out all the TP.

portable what? One of those wheeled totes? Not just direct dump into the dump station with a BW hose? I am curious if there is insufficient pressure in the BW tank as all the tanks are small

we haven't experienced low pressure as the porto tank sits below the black and grey drain, the good thing is it holds 27 gallons your grey is 15 your black is 9 24 gallons total.

OK I am laughing because I will continue to pee in the woods. I got a trailer so I can leave that little plastic trowel at home!

But I still fail to see why I need a waste tote.
Don"t both grey and black go down a drain if there is a dump station? Maybe I am being dense but if I find a dump station every four days or so , would I still need that wheeled thing? It seems from your post that the baby !95 doesn't dump into the dump station. Or are you stationary for a long time and not going to hitch-up Matilda just for a dump station run?

I got my Wag Bags and Loo Bucket packed too!
