Dump stations?

Is that the correct term? They are called "pump outs" in the boating world. My question is "where"? We called our local TA station and they don't offer the service. Where do you find them while traveling?

We're fortunate in Washington State that many of the freeway rest areas have three-lane dump stations and they're free. We tend to go for full hook-up campgrounds anyway, so it hasn't been an issue for us. We also have a city park about a half mile from home that has a free dump station also.

H Miller: I again reviewed a good part of the list and the only truckstops I saw had lines drawn thru them (no longer offering the service). Must be going blind. Did you search by a particular area or town? Thanks

Looking in my area of central Texas, several were found...
It is noted that you are from (reside in) Florida.
Flying J's are in Dade City, Ft. Pierce, Midway, St. Augustine, St. Lucie, San Antonio, Fl. and Seffner...
Other brands are located in Ormond Beach, Gulf Breeze, Haines City, 2 in Hialeah, Polk City, Reddick, Vero Beach and a Travel Center in Seffner (that's 2 in Seffner)

All campgrounds I have stayed at, have had a dumping station.
When traveling Passport America campgrounds usually include full hook ups.

Flying J truck stops have RV dump stations but they charge sometimes.

Check with your city sanitation department. Ours will let you dump your holding tanks for free at their facilities.

Try SaniDumps I know they have a lite (free) and a paid app version for the Android phones and I think they have an app for the iphone too. They have a website too if you are hooked into the internet. Shows alot of dump stations and codes them as members only ones, usually Elks, and CGs or free ones like town sanitation dump stations.

While driving down the road look for a road sign that is a picture of a camper with an arrow pointing down out of the back end of the camper.
