This is helpful...I don't think the 5 of us can conserve enough to make it worthwhile, and we bought the camper to have the convenience. Sounds like I'm in the market for a portable tank

So I may be looking for a portable tank as well, but what about fresh water. I seemed to be running low this weekend right about the same time my grey tank was showing full. any thoughts

Camping World carries a 34? gallon bladder for fresh water. Otherwise, I have a couple Reliance blue jugs I fill and dump in everyday if needed. Others have built fresh water storage tanks for their trucks. And depending on the campground you can make a hose clamp adapter for a regular hose and temporarily hook it up to various pressurized water spigots to fill tank.

#1 buy a plastic folding table and wash dishes outside at the outdoor sink. Easily save a couple gallons per wash.
#2 brush teeth outside or turn off water while brushing. My nephew leaves the water running when he brushes his teeth... I don't get it.
#3 learn the art of a "camp shower". Your shower head has an on/off switch on it. Get the water the right temp, wet yourself down and turn off the water at the shower head. Lather up, turn water back on and rinse off. You would be amazed at how much water you can conserve this way... several gallons per person per day.

It adds up quickly.

It seems there are a couple of differing points of view on water useage/conserving.

I'm on the side of using what I paid good money for. If I want to use the shower or wash dishes in the sink, I know I have that option. It is after all what we paid extra for...

So I have a 4-wheel Thetford smart tote, and it works out well. When I'm not using it, I store it in the TT.

So far I have not had an issue using the CG showers, wife uses both, I don't fit all that well in the MH shower and I like longer showers than what the MH provides. LOL.

I have the 19xud-it has 15g grey and 9g black. The Thetford 27 gallon takes it all. Dishes done at water source-I have a two way with an extra 8 foot hose and sprayer. Just did four nights and made only one Thetford trip to dump station
