At a full hook-up site I don't hook up the sewer hose until I am ready to dump, generally just before leaving the site. If we stay awhile at the same site and get a full tank I will dump when full enough to get the 'WOOSH' working. If at a state park with out full hook-ups I get in line, just like everyone else...and also wonder why the guys in front are diddling around...as said elsewhere "Dump, quickly rinse your hose, stow & get out of the way!"

That's kind of what I was thinking. In that area I'm sure it was all septic tank and drain field and dumping at the primary dump station would help prevent overload the smaller systems. Just a guess but I think maybe correct.

I've seen some parks that require you to empty your tanks at the dump station before going to your site because they have strict regulations regarding formaldehyde in their septic system. Rather than relying on the RV owner knowing what kind of chemicals they use, or having people lie about what chemicals they use, they simply require you to enter with verified empty tanks.

We've even stayed at one park where they provided their own chemical, after you dumped.
