I figure if the guy in front of me is doing THAT good of job on his tanks, then i'll let him work on mine! But the truth is; treat others the way you would like to be treated.

I go out of my way to avoid having anyone complain about me being in their way. How? I usually go dump my tanks at a local Cabelas late night, when there's almost zero chance of having someone waiting behind me. Why? I like to clean my tanks really well as my original gauges still work perfectly fine and by flushing them thoroughly, it's my belief they'll keep on working. I generally take upwards of 30-45 minutes to thoroughly dump and flush the black tank twice. If the last campground isn't a FHU, I'll wait till I get home to dump unless there's little chance of me blocking someone at a common dump station on the way out.

Maybe, this question should have been directed to the offending party.

How long does it take you to dump your tanks?

You too will experience the enjoyment of waiting until it is your turn, then the enjoyment of being the offender for the person behind you...

The person behind me will not wait more than 5 or 6 minutes - the time it takes me to empty my tanks and get my coach out of the way for the next guy.

I have a macerator pump that I only use at my winter spot. As I have to pump uphill 30-35' away.
When traveling the 3" slinky hose is used.

It takes me a couple of hours to dump. I pull the black handle and walk off for about 45 minutes. come back and dump ten gallons of water in the toilet. drain that and do it again. When all the gauges read empty. I move to the gray tank and start over. That is why I put in a dump station at my house. I just bypass the dump station and come home to dump. Three 55 gallon plastic drums and a little gravel have worked flawlessly since the seventies.

In the city, it would not be allowed, but if I was in the county, I have thought that would be a good option....

Regardless, with my macerator, I simply use the sewer clean out... It really works great when at my other site, where I have to pulp up hill and about 150" away from where I am parked. Even with the macerator, it does not take more than 10 or 15 mins to complete the entire job, even with flushing the tanks.

Since I started using the macerator it certailny takes a little longer then it use to, but I only dump when I have to and wait until I get home if possible. Then only time I felt like I was holding anyone up was when I was exiting a campground and stopped to dump, the guy in front of me to an exccessive amount of time. So once I pulled up to dump I tried to be swift as the guy behind me had been there just as long as me at this point. Little did I know that the path to dump was also the only path OUT of the CG!!! The guy behind me didn't even need to dump he was just trying to get out. Crappy CG design right there!!!

It takes just seconds do drop the primary black followed by the grey. It's the forward smaller black tank on the right hand side that takes about 20 minutes as it operates on a waste pump that transfers the waste from that tank to the dump manifold on the left side.

This new RV takes easily twice as long as any previously owned RV. Don't know why, but I find it annoying and I'm sure whomever is behind me is annoyed, too.

Seems most are considerate of others and try to make it as quick as possible, most but as seen in this thread not all.
