Towing with full black, gray tanks

Hey guys, does anyone know If its ok to tow a short distance with a full black tank? I just spent a week without the ability to dump the black and its fuller than I had anticipated. It shows four lights on the meter and is visible sitting at the bottom when you flush. Im afraid If the thing was to lean due to the road or something it could slosh where I dont want it even though it appears to be 8-10 plus inches down.
Thanks

Don't sound like you have a choice...but you shouldn't have any problems as long as commode is shut right.

Well I have some plastic bins, and theoretically could dump some in them and dispose of it so it wasn't so full. looking down in the thing it appears there's a little gap where you wouldn't want it sloshing, but that cant be right being its a toilet could it? So with it shut as normal sloshing wont go anywhere it should not, correct?

A full tank will "slosh" significantly less than a partially full tank. On a boat tanks are kept at capacity or empty, partial tanks (called a slack tank) are constantly shifting with the waves/tides; very much like a partial tank in a trailer.

I have no issues hauling my TT with full tanks. The "ball valve" in toilet is very good at sealing off the tank from the bathroom.

There is no issues hauling with full tanks. Bigger issue is the weight, and how it will effect your tongue weight.

The valve on the commode will seal the tank, from sloshing out.

I tow with my black and grays full all the time after 5 days at Texas Motor Speedway. No problems. I empty them when I get home.
