What do you pay for someone to clean the bathroom in your rig?

Cleaning up your own bathroom is a much different thing than cleaning up others messes. Many of the CG restrooms are so bad we don't even use them. Mostly because inconsiderate people have been accustomed to leaving their messes for "somebody else" to deal with. The people who are actually getting paid an hourly rate or salary should clean the bathrooms. I agree with all those who wouldn't take the Host job if it involves cleaning the restrooms. I wouldn't mind doing tree trimming, mowing the grass, even picking up litter, but Bathrooms, no way. I didn't retire from a great paying job or buy a MH, to clean restrooms.

When we cleaned the bathrooms when volunteering at a GA state park, we found evidence of sexual activity, lots of discarded skivvies, feces all over the place, etc. and this was in their state park bathrooms not the campground bathrooms. Just toilets too, no showers thank goodness. Since a public road ran through the campground, this was boaters and thru vehicle traffic using these bathrooms.

I don't know all the nuances or typicalities (yay! A new word!), but seems to me it boils down to the arrangement is either a good fit or it's not, and for individual campgrounds there'd be as many combinations of arrangement as there are parties involved.

(nothing useful here; I just wanted to play the new word).

Sorry to burst your balloon:
typicality - the state of being that is typical

I seldom clean a bathroom but I don't look down on those that do.
And I certainly don't lookup to those that won't.

We've always done "work camping" rather than volunteer hosting. We got pay as well as a site, and did what needed to be done. In one place they had workcampers who only cleaned bathrooms and others who did other chores; everywhere else all the workcampers took turns at that.

After our first job, we learned to be ask very direct questions and get explicit answers about the work expected (days/hours and types) and the remuneration. Never had a problem with dirty work, but always wanted to make sure we knew what we were signing up for. If the campground owner/manager couldn't give crisp answers, we went looked elsewhere.

When you volunteer to be a host or work camp can you sub-contract out your turn to clean the bathrooms?

If you don't like doing what you are expected to do as a volunteer don't volunteer.

Maybe to the guy who likes to clean bathrooms but doesn't want to empty trashcans or do a little mowing. Some good old horse trading might just be the answer.
