Waste Tote carriers

Hello, I have a Z17 and looking to buy a waste tote unit. I am considering Store and Go, they have a special on at around $120 for 15 gal to 22 gal units. Has anyone used there units on a Z17 and what capacity is best, I am considering the 15 gal but also the 22 gal. Thanks in advance for any advice.

John

I could not find a Store and Go on the web, but I am assuming you are talking about something similar to the blue totes. Keep in mind that the waste will weigh roughly 8 lbs per gallon. That means that a full 22 gal unit will weigh about 176 lbs. The 15 gal unit will weigh about 56 lbs less. For me that is the difference between being able to lift it into the back of the truck and needing help to do so.

We bought a 35 gallon tote for our 17Z because we could totally empty either of our tanks without worrying about overfilling the tote.

Our problem came with transporting the thing to and from the campground. We had to keep the tote inside the 17z which was a real chore. It's not that it was heavy, it was that it was awkward.

I believe you are referring to the tote-n-store(google) jepotts. I have one and am very pleased with it so far. I purchased the 25 gallon to make sure it didn't overflow since my tank is 28 gallon. I comes with a removable tow handle that hangs over your hitch ball so you can tow to the dump station. I know that the barker seems to be a popular tote on this forum as well but my dealer didn't sell them.

One thing i have found surprising is that whenever i go to fill it my tote it only feels half full. It's hard to judge when the black tank is really full and i don't want it to overflow. I'm still a nubee.

That's a nice tote tls001. I just checked it on my jayco dealers parts online and its quite pricey $ 365.00. I bought the tote-n-stor because it was also on sale in-store for $ 160.00. I'm sure the barker is probably at lot cheaper across the border.

Good price tls001. I might have bought one for that price as they are better from what i here. Don't know why everthing is so much more up here when our dollar is at par with yours now but thats another topic.

I have 22gal barker I bought second hand from Craiglist. I see them there often, may be worth checking. We couldn't be happier with our tote.
