I did it this way so if there is a broken hose or fitting everything stays in the tank. Where it is supposed to stay, not like my last aluminum tank. when you get the tank you can have the connections put anywhere you want.|

Holding Tank Replacement
One of my winter projects is replacing the holding tank, y valve, macerator etc.
I have decided on only one item the trident green stripe hose as its the most pliable low odor hose to work with.
What tanks have you got- I am torn between, ronco and sealand...Sealand seems more expensive and not sure why?
Where are the inlets/ outlets located? inlet from head should be at the top I beleive, Is there any negatives to having the outlet at the bottom side wall going to the y valve from there ( after the Y is either the macerator or the pump out? If the outlet is on top..will the dip tune get clogged or leave a sediment in the bottom of the tank? Inspection port and vent outlets at the top I beleive.
Thanks for your suggestions.
