Hi, My truck camper sits a bit higher in the rear. Truck doesn't squat to level loaded with camper. Will this be a problem for dumping waste water? If so, might need to remove my helper/supersprings.

Depends which direction the outlet comes out of the tank. Most tanks have a molded in downhill to the drain. In the large scheme of things, a gallon left in a tank after you drain doesn't really matter.

You can always drive up on blocks with the front wheels if you want better or faster draining at the dump.

This is what I do. My truck also sits tail high.

Thanks. Can you all recommend a light set of blocks for this amount of weight?

I always carry various lengths of 2x6's for under my tires, under the jack bases, and can be split with a hatchet for starting the campfire. They are lightweight and can fit in many small spaces around the camper and truck.

Any style of stackable RV leveling blocks will work. I use then or pieces of 2x8
