But this is not a good thing to do. It can clog your pipes at home and your RV. It's a disgusting smelly mess to run a "snake" through the pipes to remove the rancid sticky filth loaded grease when that happens. Grease should be put out in the trash. We don't eat much food that leaves grease behind but my parent's did when they were younger. They used an empty coffee can to dump grease and cooking oil in. When full it went out with the trash.

Grease will coat the walls of your grey tank.....yuk! A little water gets sucked out of any of the traps in your drains while your bouncing down the highway and you'll be smelling it. I guess a good amount of dish soap down the drain would get rid of it but still no grease or cooking oil down sink (.)

Camped this weekend and had bacon every day, it was a perfect time to educate the kids now that the are getting older and understand. They really conserve water now as they helped empty the grey tank which they filled in 1 day (no sewer at site). I blame that on the tankless water heater, much longer showers.
