In our case it would end up COSTING us plenty of $$ in fines from the health Dept. We operate a food cart and are required to have "approved potable water" and an "approved waste system". So we do have the magic pipes that take away our flushings. And in Corpus Christi we also had the sidewalks! I've never had a sidewalk with any house we've owned.

Re: One Tank or Two? (Grey/Black)

For what its worth, I just have one tank in the Crown because of space limitations. The bus has a mid-ship engine and with all the rest of the mechanical workings underneath, it was all I could put in. I don't do much boondocking so it works ok for me and I don't have a big family either to fill it up quickly.

Re: One Tank or Two? (Grey/Black)

The trunk would be an ideal space, but my fuel tank runs wall to wall just in front of the trunk area. In order to get around that, I would need a pump to get the waste water into the tank because they would be uphill if I sat them in there.
