Unfortunately our clean out is on the north side of the house and the MH is on the south. I just dump at the campground or one of the two rest areas new our house. No problems that way and I don't need a macerator.

We call it Fort Wilderness North!
Some of you have some seriously nice rig set ups.

Thanks!





We have a nice place on a nice lake about 30 miles from Milwaukee.
I have been toying with the idea of adding full hookups by the trees on the other side of the driveway, where the two cars are. Then offer it to other forum users for a fee. What do you guys think?

I liked my next door neighbor's system: he pulls inside via a 14X14 door, closes it, plugs into 50A, dumps his black and gray via a receptacle in the spotless epoxied floor.

Well, our entry is not exactly a straight-in, so we have to turn around and back in.

Plus, I wondered about dumping indoors.

So, I measured the distance from the front of my RV to the sewage discharge (modified from inside the plumbing bay to outside, beneath it), added two feet, and started digging.

It was simple, going down at a 45 degree angle and intercepting the house discharge pipe with a "Y" fitting.

I formed a concrete pad around the threaded end, and got a flush cap so that I can mow over the whole thing.

For flushing, an ag hydrant is about 15 feet away (non-potable garden water), fresh is available on the other side. Power is indoors.

So, when DW pulls in, I leap out and hook up, dump, disconnect the TOAD and do a blackwater tank flush while she extends the bedroom slide and unpacks. Then, the bus is turned around and backed into her bay.

Outbound, the freshwater fill is properly oriented (now the dump and flush hydrant is on the passenger's side of the RV), and the rig is positioned for dolly/TOAD hookup.

Pretty simple, and the dump station probably didn't cost $60 to create.

I think somebody needs to get rid of the body that is floating by that one dock.

In some areas you can't add another connection, but you can have as many "cleanouts" as you want!
