    This is probably a stupid question, but, in an effort to reduce setup/tear down time on overnighters, can I fill the potty holding tank before leaving home and then not dump the cassette (as long as it's not too full) when leaving the campground for the next destination?

    I normally fill my cassette holding tank before I leave home, and just leave what ever is in it for the return. The waste tank, however, I do try to empty it out at the end of the trip. One trip I didn't just because it was a downpour, and I didn't want to stand in the rain dumping it. But it did stink something fierce when I did get to emptying it (a couple days after being home).

    But I have gone to the Dark Side, and my thinking is that it would be nice if needed to just pull over and use the toilet if needed. Haven't had to yet, but it's there if needed. That would be hard to do in a pop-up.

    I keep the water tank full all season on my cassette, but do make sure I empty the holding take of it's black water after each trip. Now if your only breaking camp and driving to the next place you should be fine. I just wouldn't want it to stew in a 90 degree camper over the weekend or something.

    I often dump at home, the chemicals and sloshing work wonders on the waste, use chemicals and you shouldn't smell anything. I don't leave it set long but no issues here

    Should not be a big problem, but as stated use the chemicals, you would not appreciate the aroma that will come out of it, in the heat.
