hi Your NEW van :Smile: usualy carrys a waste water tank capacitys vary but with europeans and coach builts about 80l to 120 litres theres a drain tap located on the side or under make sure the dealer shows you it!!!! most camping sites have motorhome waste point s..drop it there !! another way is do what tuggers do have a waste wheely thing and drop has you use like caravaners or a black waste jerry can . the gery waste will be marked near the fresh water taps and drains ..! you could carry it home and drop down a drain but you are carrying weight :winky: i prefer to drop on site before going home! if i go out visting places i leave it on board depends how much i have in the tank though:RollEyes:
:frowny: dont drop on your pitch its just not nice to get to a pitch with smelly water on! think off others:wub:

black bucket

A very good point... I was using one of those grey waste water carriers and what a job I had to fix the drain hose pipe onto the motorhome waste pipe. It wasn't the same width and kept falling off. We tried to tie string to hold it in place, cloths etc. To no avail.

In future, I'm deffo going to use a large black bucket. It's only waste water coming from the sink and shower after all, nothing too horrible!:RollEyes:

We use a collapsible bucket which we bought in Woolworths - takes up very little space when not in use.

I actually saw a collapsible bucket in a pound shop this morning. Don't know how good it is but maybe worth a punt if you don't have one.

We use a Wastemaster when we don't want to move the van i.e. shows. Also we always clean fat or oil from all pans etc with kitchen towel before washing up. 2 min job but helps to stop any smells from grey pipes or tank also prevets any "build up" ::bigsmile:

Should it be a long walk, we strap the can and chemcal toilet one of these:

Aluminium Trolley - £22.50 - from GO Outdoors.co.uk
We have a similar trolley but bought it from a local camping shop for about £12.50 so worth shoping around. We use it for fetching fresh water in a 20 litre container when we are camping at musters - a couple of bungee straps are all that are needed to fasten the container to the trolley.

Trolley
We use an ally shopping trolley from Lidl (when they have them) cost 7.99... simply added a bar across to support any container you have to transport. ...and it saves carrying the shopping too:Cool:

Drain pipe
we use one from the local market... designed for washing machines it has a conical fitting which fits most m/h waste outlet pipes

Perhaps I should explain, the trolley highlighted was only for ilustration purposes.
I mean for that price I'd want it gold plated and chaffeur driven.
