I bought and modified one of these 50 gallon water tanks that sits in the back of our truck. With a macerator I am able to pump out our tanks in a more or less liquid solution and fill up the tank. Yes, 50 gallons x 8 pounds per gallon is a lot of weight, but not to an unloaded truck. Then we go to the dump station and hook up the standard stinky slinky hose and pull the [valve] (https://www.amazon.com/Valterra-T40-Spigot-Valve-Assembly/dp/B00594AZRU/ref=sr_1_12?ie=UTF8&qid=1487151353&sr=8-12&keywords=valterra+waste+valve) open. After emptying the tank rinse it out and occasionally put some soap in it to keep it somewhat clean. It works.

I usually keep water in my tank over the summer. I'll drain and refill before trips. I like to travel with some water in the fresh tank, even if I'm camping at a cg with water hookup in case I need to use the sink en route or at the cg before I hook up the city water.

I'll usually leave a little water in the black tank between trips. If it's completely dry, whatever is left in the tank will dry to sides of the tank and become like poo concrete.

I have a poop cannon (flojet waste pump) so I can dump at home. Between trips after I dump, I will fill the back tank, let it sit for a couple days and dump again.

I've never seen the SewerSolution until now, but it looks to me like it serves a bit of a different purpose then the Flush King. It looks like the SewerSolution is meant to run a little longer distance (like using it at home where you can't get your RV close enough to and outside inlet to your sewer).

Just looking at it, I'd be a little leery. I can see that there's a jet that blasts a stream going out the hose, but if you get enough TP or other solids in that little hose, is that jet going to be enough to push it though? If it does happen to get jammed, you're in for a bit of a mess when you close your black water tank and disconnect this hose. Remember, the shut off for the black water tank is generally located right up at the tank, there is going to be 4 to 5 feet of PVC full of stuff between the shut off and the disconnect, and it's all going to come out. If you want to go this route, take a look at the flojet, I have a friend who has one, and they are happy with it. It's obviously more money, but it actually grinds up the solids and actually pumps stuff out the hose.

The flush king is more for keeping your tanks clean and free of dried up solids. You hook it up to the outlet on the RV, then hook the slinky hose up to the flush king. First you drain your tank as normal, then you use close the flush king and turn on the hose, this pushes water back up into your tanks to create a rinse. then you open again and let everything drain back out. Repeat as necessary. As time permits, I'll sometimes do it 3 to 4 times during a dumping.

Sometimes I dry camp in the middle of nowhere so I need to dump when I get home. I have a macerator pump unit that hooks up to a garden hose (I only use the hose for this) and then I stick the far end of the hose into my sewer cleanout and dump it all in there. This also allows me to do a really deep cleaning on my tanks to keep my sensors clean since I can flush a ton of water through my tanks.

Pump I have is https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001HKZHIW/ and I'd recommend it as it works very well.

You can use a macerator pump connected to the dump valve

https://www.amazon.com/Flojet-18555-000A-Portable-Macerator-Carrying/dp/B001HKZHIW

Then just pump it into a 55 gallon drum or something in your vehicle and then go dump it somewhere where you can dump into the sewer.

With 3 people using the toilet, expect to need it pumped out every week to 10 days. Average size is 30 gallons for each black and grey tank.

The grey water will fill up even faster, with dishes, showers, etc.
