At some point we'll be doing some dry camping and need one. I don't think we're close to that though. We have a lot to learn and buy before we do.

Thanks for the advice.

Well when it's time, well worth the insurance. There's nothing worse than a full black water tank and no dump station.

We use a dishpan in the sink when washing dishes and then dump it into the black tank via the toilet. The sudsy water helps the black tank from becoming aromatic and it keeps the grey tank from filling up so fast.

My wife and I recently spent six nights at a state park with no sewer hookup. After both showering and using the RV facilities all six days, neither the black nor grey tanks were full yet. They were getting close, but not quite.

Gray water leaking out underneath is likely in need of some kind of repair. Now if it's fresh water they do sometimes overflow out the bottom. Taste it and see if it's gray, black or fresh water.
To funny, never hope to have to resort to the taste test in this matter.
