We have a pee only policy, however, recently DW had a bad dose of "Revenge of the Campfire Chili" and the policy was abandoned for the rest of the time. I simply filled the fresh water tank before we pulled off the site and then dumped the tanks on our way out of the park. Dumped the black tank a few extra times after running the "rinse" on the toilet several times before dumping (probably 2 -3 gallons each cycle). I have a clear section of sewer pipe right at the end of the sewage line and just watched for the discharge to run clear. The trick is to use plenty of water while your using the toilet and plenty more when you dump. No chemicals and no problems.

Don't really understand the "pee only" policy, why even have a toilet, a toilet is used to poop and pee in. If you add plenty of water before hand you will have no problems. Agree with no chemical use.

Not using the bathroom is just as weird as never using the cooktop inside.

No chemicals.

Have to agree. If you want chemicals, and we use them, toss ins work well for us. Pee only policy to is plane silly. That must go along with those that have a no toilet paper policy and deposit used paper in the garbage can.

We use the toss in chemicals, easy to use and everything stays clean and smelling good. No reason not to use it for #2 too, really no difference than your house, it all eventually gets dumped down the same drains. Your holding tanks are just a temporary place to store it until you dump. Just dump it thoroughly and do a quick rinse and you'll have no issues.

That's like not using the tank water to drink.

Are you saving your tanks for the next owners poop ?

We full time and do all the things we would do in a house.

Why does clear water have to flow out of the black tank pipes ? We dump, rinse the hose and go.

Many folks have a hang up when it comes to Feces.. I don't know why may be all the yammer here in the forums about "The Dreaded Poop Pyramid"

Alas. I do not have that hang up so I use mine the way they were designed to... and as for chemicals. Hydrogen Hydroxicide, also known as HOH and in case you have not yet figured it out WATER is the one I use all the time.

IF the rig is going to sit w/o dumping for a long time (like 2+ weeks) I might invest in a biological but normally I dump at least once a week. and they take longer than a week to do good.

Us too. No point in making lifelong enemies of the occupants of the 5 Rvs waiting in line behind.

And we don't spray the entire dump point with chlorox before and after either.


And yes, we drink water out of the fresh water tank too. In 30 countries including several considered third-world, we have never had problems attributable to drinking the water. Mind you it doesn't always taste too good, especially if you are a tea drinker.

Some of the events we goto have Porta potties available, that are cleaned daily. At those events we will use those. Though we do have a person in our group who refuses to use them, so I'll have to hide my toy haulers TP. Anywhere else, well, it's a bathroom, and will be used as such, except for drunks, they have a sit to use policy

And the people we bought the trailer from said they dump black first then grey to rinse the hoses.
