Thanks, all, for the tips. I like the idea of the mascerator pump, but I still have to put 'it' somewhere. I figured there had to be a low-profile blue tote available, but I just haven't found one yet.
Right now, though, I just look forward to getting the camper out of storage. Michigan weather has been pretty crummy this spring.
Hello. Has anyone found a way to use the blue sewage/black water tote with their hybrid? My 23B is WAY TOO LOW to be able to successfully use the tote (I tried and was unsuccessful. Yeah, use your imagination on what happened.). I figure I would need to install a lift kit, as well as park the trailer on several leveling blocks to get the extra height to drain the black water.
I love our hybrid, but this is a definite flaw if we take the HTT out for more than two days. Has anyone else done the lift kit, or have any other suggestions? I have looked for a lower profile blue tote, but am so far not successful.
I towed a Jayco 23B with my 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee for two seasons. The Jeep was a V8. Plenty of power, but unless I was staying close to home, I didn't enjoy it. Due to the short wheel base, I had LOTS of white-knuckled experiences while on the highway, and always kept the speed about 55-57 MPH. Expect to get passed by a bunch of semis. If I was driving on two-lane highways, things were ok. I now have two small kids, and I would not feel safe pulling the camper with my family in the Jeep, but that's just me.
I have the 5.0, 4x4 screw with 6.5' bed. I bought it in early June with 10 miles on it, and it now has a whopping 2500 miles on it. So far, my mpg is just over 18, but that's mostly highway driving. I like everything about it!
