Tote tank

We have a Camco 15 gallon tote tank but the inlet is higher than the trailer outlet. Has anyone found a tote that is low enough to use?

I have a 32 gal "Tote-N-Stor" tank that's shallow enough to just fit just under the sewer discharge outlet on my E19 (no axle lift) . I only use it to drain the grey tank and don't utilize a sewer hose. I fill the the tote with a 45deg elbow attached directly to the outlet. The elbow slips inside tote inlet by about 1/2".

There might enough height difference to use a shortened standard sewer hose with an accordion-style support....but I have not tried. If I had to drain the black tank into the tote with my current set-up, I'd be inclined to use a 12v macerator pump that attaches directly to the sewer outlet.

This tote tank was given to me by an acquaintance, so I don't know how easy it is to find new. It's definitely lower in profile than the Rhino branded tank I was looking at prior....

I have the Camco Rhino 15-Gallon Camper / RV Portable Waste Tank my 2020 Escape 19 has the lift kit. Most of the time the tank is just slightly below the dump outlet. On those occasions that the outlet might be slightly higher due to leveling blocks on the opposite side, or rise in the ground on the dump side. Using the included short dump hose, I can simply lift the hose progressively from the dump valve to the portable tote to still use it.
