Waste Water Tote for 23b

I have bought a barker 32 gallon tote for using with our 23b. Did a trial run here at home with just filling up our gray water tank and then using the barker tote to empty it. What I discovered is that with the low drain on the TT it doesn't flow all that great into the tote. I was able to empty it but found myself having to snake it to get the last bit into the tote, and of course there was still a bit left. With gray water it doesn't bother me, but black would be a different story.
So, what do you guys use for emptying your tanks (assuming you have a low drain)? Is this just a common issue with having a low drain or should I have gotten a smaller tote? Any thoughts or advice is much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

We found the same problem with our trailer so I use the cap off our tote that has a hose adapter built in and put it on the sewer outlet. Then I purchased a female hose fitting with a 3/4"" barbed fitting and added a 3/4" clear hose about 14" long which just drops into hole of the tote with its large cap off. We found that we don,t need the tote for the black tank since it never fills up on our 5 day trips. Don,t believe the indicator levels on the gauge for the black tank just look down the hole.

Yes I have to milk it in order to get the last little bit out of it but we never use our tote tan for turds.

I should have mentioned I have the 28 gallon tot n stor Michael. My grey tank is 30 gallons but with my method of draining allows me to see if it's going to overflow.

I only use the tote for the grey water, as it fills up more often.
Yes, it a bit of a pain with the drain so low, but it works, and saves a pump out before you leave.
