Can you get your wife to dump the tanks

I tease my wife all the time that she needs to do this chore in case I'm unable sometime for whatever reason. She is not to keen on the idea. She swears she will hire someone to do it. That got me to thinking about the rest of the women in the RV world. Will your wife do the deed.

My wife has no problem doing any chore including this one. If you look at our blog I am sure you will see she is beautiful and feminine but she will take on any task from remodeling a rental property to mowing a lawn to enjoying her hobby as an avid motorcyclist.

I absolutely see no point in causing aggravation for myself (and it would sooner or later) when it just takes minutes for me to dump and flush.....
She takes care of the inside and the outside is mine.

Yeah, Right!

She says she could do it but after once having to stop her from pouring oil into a cars radiator I 'shudder' to think what could happen.

I've tried to get her to do it with my supervision, not so much luck.....

As I have become disabled,(can't walk far, or stand ) my wife has taken over all the outside jobs. I still do the inside ones where I take frequent breaks.

She also does all the repairs. I hand her the tools and advise.

I rather do it myself but we all have to do what works best.

I'm darn proud of her. Everytime she does a repair, she says:"I now know how to...."

Same here!!

She has pulled the grey valve for me when I stayed too long in the shower and the water was coming over my feet.

No way. After seeing a neighbor's slinky explode during a dump, the chances are slim to none...

No problem at all dumping here. I even took apart the whole system and replaced our dump valves while hubby was away one time (and I have the pics to prove it!). Then again, I may not be your typical gal

I'm a big believer in being able to do everything on the rig. You never know when you might need it.

Even if she did not suffer from arthritis the answer would be a resounding NO.

Howdy!

My LW can do that and everything else (sewer, propane, driving etc...) on her own. She lived in our 5er by herself for nine months before we went fulltime due to a job transfer. She has also advised me if something were to happen to me she would contuine to fulltime on her own solo. I think its important that they should be able to preform these tasks in the event something happens and they need to do so.
