Default Emptying blackwater

Good morning......we have a 95 26rd and just finshed our second extended stay.

We generally dry camp and the question is:

Since the waste valve is very low on the 26rd, the valve on our waste tote is slightly higher thereby gravity alone will not drain the camper waste tank.

Other than digging a hole to put the tote in, are there any other solutions?

Being a master of the obvious I should be able to figure this out, but have come up with no solution!

Thanks

You can gain some height by putting a couple layers of boards or leveling blocks under the wheels. We had the same problem with or 1705T and decided to only chance emptying the gray tank into the tote and hold off on the black tank until we got to a dump station. I think the HiLo designers never took their designs camping.

Added Note: If you can temporarily drop the tongue some to elevate the dump valve would help.
