Rmiscoord: No need to apoligize. It's one of the things I have learned to do by reading a zillion or so posts on these sites.

One thing we learned after leaving the FMCA Rally in Redmond, OR a couple years ago was that a whole bunch of folk have the same idea of where to dump. Be prepared to wait in line. We passed on by and dumped at an RV park on the way home. They did charge us $10.00 but the wait would have been at least 2 hours. Have fun at your first rally

As has been said here, most rally's have access to a "honey wagon" that will for a fee empty your holding tanks. And you can probably get fresh water and maybe propane also. Check with the rally organizers before you leave home. Hope this helps. Happy trails.

I dry camp there for the show. I have work as a vendor also and I know they have a dump station. I am not sure about the location but I think it is South of the Orient Rd entrance. Whether or not they let you use it is one thing also. I think you should call the fairgrounds.

What about utilizing the closest Flying J dump station and fresh water fill? If you have a Flying J card the dump station is $5, without, $10. All the information is in the Flying J thread.

what im doing right now is installing a 2inch abs pipe out a boarded up basement window, hooking it up into my house sewer line. then im going to get aone of those macerators. then when I come home from boondocking, ill hook up and empty and flush my tanks right in my own yard. I would like to run a 3'' pipe and then jus thook up my slinky, but no can do, the macerator will work ok, then ill have one if needed else where, hope this will work ok its a pain in the ass trying to go to a dump site

gbstewart,

Great minds think alike! I am doing the same as you are regarding using the macerator and dumping via the basement sewer. Works great, I pump approx. 30 feet thru a 3/4 inch garden hose.

I have that setup at both daughters homes so I can spend time in their driveways and dump the tanks.I have a ball valve and a hose adapter on the pipe.Connect the hose, open the valve and pump.When done close the valve and disconnect till next time.

I tapped into the pipe that our washing machine drains into. It is a 2 inch PVC. I made the connection about 5 feet from where it connects to the main 4 inch sewer. Was an easy connection to make in the basement. The pipe from the washer, which is above the basement, runs about 12 feet latterely, and has plenty of drop before connecting to the sewer pipe. Instead of going thru a basement window, the construction of my house allowed for me to use a hole saw to make an access hole between the house framing and the wall foundation.
