It is those parks that made me ask this question. I am in one now with full hookups and it is nice not having to take Navy showers and walk to the facility building. Especially being it has been storming. We spent a week at Bahia Honda and did find we did OK with the capacity of the tanks. We took only a few showers at their facility and used the restrooms mostly during the day. When I dumped this was one of the few times I could not flush my black tank. They had a sprayer setup on the hose where I could not hook up a hose to my tank.

On the few occasions this happened to me, I've used the dump station (usually every couple days), without a major disruption in the overall plan. It also saves you the room taken up by the big ole blue boy.

We have been staying at federal and state facilities for the past several years. We prefer them over private campgrounds. For that reason I bought a blue tank and installed a hitch on our toad. We have it down to a routene. Every few days I hook up the blue tank to the toad and make a few trips to the dump station with gray water I never put black water in the tank. We use the shower and washing machine as if we had a sewer hookup. Every seven to ten days we break down and dump the black tank and flush it out at the dump station. Its really not a big deal.

I often stay at Corps of Engineers campgrounds which have electric, water and no sewer. Like other posters I just pull in slides raise jacks and go to dumping station. Here is my idea on how to reduce the number of trips it takes to the dumping station.

Grey water to flush black tank

It is going to be about two weeks before I can get to my MH to install the necessary pump and plumbing to try this out. I am going to take the advice of some posters in my thread and put a filter before the pump.

No Sewer Hookups?

For just a few weeks we make do on our tanks. We use the campground showers, conserve inside the RV and dump when we move. With good conservation you can go a long time between dumps. We can go up to 4 weeks (the max we've ever gone) on our 60 gallon grey, 40 gallon black. 2 weeks is easy, 3 weeks is stretch.
