He may have trouble with his setup dumping at some of the RV parks,I prefer mine horizontal in the bay also but it is my preference because I have had to many valves and fitting knock off over the years

Holding the grey and black waters in the tanks until they are full has worked well for me for years. Even when at a full hookup site, I don't dump until the tanks are full. So when I do let it go, there is a strong flow that comes out fast and furious and cleans things out good.

I don't know how far that sticks down below body, but it looks like an accident waiting to happen some day. Like going over humped road or railroad tracks or going in or out of uneven ground at a rally. Other than that, good work around. I prefer drain outlet at bottom inside of compartment with a horizontal outlet.

That was one of my main concerns, and the reason I tried to keep things to the same drop as the original. 

However, the whole works are installed into the T fitting by screwing in from the bottom. I tightened it pretty good, but only by hand - it's not too difficult to remove it again. Right now I'm leaning towards removing it before we hit the road to avoid any unplanned interactions with stationary objects.

A tall tank dumps better than a shallow one. Looks like you have a tall tank, a 2" drain hose would be easier to handle - maybe why they did it that way . . .

The nice thing with my is I have a Stainless steel one now and it is 4 years old and still going strong, You don't have impellers to replace like a Maserator either. Dino-mo Dave saw mine in action at Burdett park at the Evansville Rally. It also doesn't matter which side it is on or how far up to 150 ft. It will reach it. And flushing is easy , I have a 3 inch fitting in top of tank to spray into with hose and clean it out.

I have bought 2 of the FloJet pumps in the carrying case don't waste your 200 bucks on those, the brush holders are plastic and they melt then FloJet will not sell the brush holders only a complete little motor for 160 bucks.LOL the cord and push button do make a nice remote starter switch from the FloJet though

Lots of talk about moving $#!% uphill. So far, as a noobie RVer, I've not come across this situation. How many situations where you can not dump downhill? How can such dump stations exist? LOL

Pumping tank contents is most often not an issue at a commercial campground.  It comes into play at home or the home of a friend you are visiting.  The access to sewer may be uphill or a long ways away.  My previous house I used a Sewer Solution to pump about 25 feet over to a sewer clean out in the yard.
