Does anyone happen to know of anywhere around north Misouri where i might find used a Black/gray water holding tank for this 87 Honey i have. I need a small tank. The one that was on it was too deep and it was torn up when I caught it on some high ground. This one was 12inches deep. I need one no more then 6 or 8 inches deep . around 20in  x 30in. for gray water.

  Sounds to me like that "Dude" is a pretty smart guy!   I like his advice

E Bay, She Bay, Me Bay, Flea Bay lol

  I wanted down below to be on record advising the black heavier thicker ABS real "holding tanks" be used for HOLDING while the thinner water storage tanks be used for fresh water storage. HOWEVER I know this "dude" who has used the lighter thinner fresh water storage tanks to actually hold gray water, but of course NEVER BLACK WATER. Those light thin fresh water storage tanks need to be fully supported on a good strong flat surface so if you do like this "dude" who used one for added gray water storage and want to hang it say under the RV say between the frame rails, YOU HAVE TO BUILD AND HANG A SUITABLE STRONG FLAT SHELF ETC SO ITS PROPERLY SUPPORTED. The "dude: I know used 3/4 marine plywood and treated yellowwood type of material for a strong support system. They have to be mounted sort of upside down so you can use what was intended as the 1 1/4" fill inlet as the drain outlet and of course, they have to be vented so air enters as gray water exits. The "dude" simply used flex hose and a T so the auxiliary gray water tank outlet tied into the existing gray water outlet ahead of the 1 1/4 slider dump valve.

 I hereby deny any knowledge of the above or who that "dude" is  lol He also added an auxiliary 80 gallon fresh water storage tank in addition to the factory 40 gallon and added an extra real black water holding tank. When dry camping extended periods even if you have plenty of solar and extra batteries etc., fresh water storage and holding capacity IS THE LIMITING FACTOR. The "dude" wanted to be able to stay boondocking at least 7 and up to 10 days by stretching it and that's why he used an unauthorized gray water holding tank perhaps lol lol

 John T NOT a "dude" ????

LOL well fellas I looked  "Flea Bay up and there really is a  Flea Bay! There is  one site that is "Flea Bay" and one that is "Fleabay connected with Facebook. One is spelled with two words and one is spelled as one word.   Check it out. Lakota, I am open to any ideas. My son in law gave me a fresh water tank last night so maybe i can figure a way to convert it.

I have several ideas as to what you could use if you cant find one online.

Check EBAY  (a.k.a.) Flea Bay...

Comment by Rick Stafford on May 19, 2014 at 11:37am

  Thank you John I have never heard of Flea Bay, I will check that out.

Comment by John "T" Nordhoff on May 18, 2014 at 7:37pm

  I've bought several over the years on Flea Bay (UPS delivery) or others I go to my local RV dealer who goes to Elkhart Indiana every week and picks up whatever I order. Of course, the bigger heavier stronger more expensive black plastic (ABS ???) tanks are intended for holding while the lighter thinner cheaper tanks are intended more for fresh water storage.
