yes there is. I helped my buddy Corey solve that one. Macerator pump at the TC grinds up and using a 100' garden hose pumps the effluent to the clean out on the other side of the house from his driveway. I think it was $50 from camping world

X2 on the sewer cleanout at home BUT be sure to remove the donut before dumping since it can, and will, fall off when dumping.

I've got friends up north that are in about the same boat but don't have to drive quite so far.

We pay a small extra fee on our tabs to keep dump stations open at our rest stops so dumping is easy.
Otherwise I can dump the grey at home (legally).

As for the donut, I usually eat a sammich while dumping.
I never drop food.

I can dump at home, but I generally dump as soon as I’m done camping. I don’t see the reason to bring it home. I had the connection added because it was easy to do since the pipe to the septic system was being replaced.

I had forgotten what they were too.
I used one a few years ago when my sewer was going into a PVC pipe that led 20 ft to the sewer.

Might be a good idea to get another one. The one I had is long gone.
