In every state I'm aware of, it is the law. Most Rv parks have one permanently attached to the water outlet.

Well, maybe semi-permanently, as most seem to have disappeared from the campgrounds we go to!

I've been RV'ing since 1957, that was well before most RV's had indoor plumbing. I have yet to have a problem with a plug in anything I've ever owned.
1. I use any TP we have in the house.
2. Never leave the tank valves open although if I was going to use the washer I'd open the grey tank.
3. I never empty the tanks till at least half full, even if I have to add water.
4. Use the correct chemicals. I use one that has coconut oil in it and I have yet to need to replace a dump valve or even a toilet bowl seal.

I had this problem when I was first learning to RV. Got it taken care of with one of those wands you put the hose on and put down the toilet.

Later after thinking this over I relized we were not flushing enough water with each flush and the poop was piling up . Now we use plenty of flush water and have no problems..
