My camper came with one, but I have not used it yet. The PO had a truck, but since I have a Tahoe, there is no way i am storing it inside. I store it in the camper shower. It is clean on the outside and we don't use the shower, we use the CG showers.

I store my blue tank in a big 42 gal. trash bag in one of my storage bays. I thoroughly flush it after every use. No odor whatsoever.

I'm going to construct a simple cradle to secure it and then add a few inexpensive pullies to the underside of my camper's over hang floor so I can winch the tank up to the underside till I need it next.

In the past, it simpy went in the boat or cargo trailer behind the camper .

Mine was stored under the work bench in the shop for about five years, then I sold it in a garage sale for $15.
There just isn't much use for the thing if there is no place to dump it!

I keep mine on the roof rack on my truck camper. I don't use the rack for anything else. It's a 15gal one and I bungee it to the rack rails. I've had it on the ladder also, but it gets in the way of the tail lights on this camper..I very seldom have used it, but it sure is nice to have if I need it!

Wanna buy one? I have had one for 4 years, used it once. Need to get it out of storage and sell it!

Where do you store your Portable Waste Tank?


Where it was originally installed by the factory...

The trailer is pretty 'portable' as a unit, so if I were ever in a situation where I filled the tank, I'd simply pull the trailer to the dump station...

No need to get all over me for the hassles of packing up and hitching up.. Been thru that in a post I did asking 'why' you all use the portable totes... Got well educated on that and I do know why you all do it that way!

I just prefer to do it another way.. But every post needs some alternative ways, right?
