Oh lighten up a little...we like it better on this side of the bars

We are in central ca so they do not think well of such a thing, but it us 100% natural organic so then that may be different. ..it was there...

They cannot complain about caked on mud, one trip to San Benito mtn in the rain resulted in the truck looking like a turd, was old K5 blazer with mud packed from the tire to the top of the wheel well, this was a place you did not go if misty, let alone rainy must have dumped 200 pounds of mud when i slammed the door, nobody followed too close that night.

With ya. My Wrangler has had similar experiences, but mostly off-road.

I am thinking the toilet paper may be a dead giveaway.

Dumping on a federal hwy is IIRC a $2500 fine. I believe it is also $2500 in Arizona. But you can go ahead, just don't let me see you do it. I reported one idiot and would not hesitate to report a person w/an IRV2 sticker.

My son has a toy hauler trailer for his motorcycle racing. Coming home from a race he had left his fresh water drain open on purpose so it would drain. He was pulled over by Cal HiWay Pat and was going to be given a very expensive ticket until he proved that it was only fresh water.

You (moderator edit) that go off roading in the mud and or gravel and then drive on the HiWay ought to be incarcerated. The windshield companies love you. In the fire service we had to wash down the truck and undercarriage after a wildland fire to keep rocks from damaging your vehicle. You should do the same. It was also to keep from spreading noxious plants to other areas.

The OP asked an honest question. He got a few answers to his question.

But most of the responses were negative or WAY off topic from the original question . The "idiot" response in the initial reply was out of line and lent nothing to the subject. Others commented they were unnecessary, but they probably have an RV with automatic jacks and a multitude of other bells and needless whistles.

I have not installed electric dump valves. I think they are a great idea. A full timer friend has them and likes the convenience. He prefers to keep his grey tank valve closed until the tank is full. With the electric valves he does not have traipse outside when the tank fills halfway through a shower.

Recall a story about a bus going over the Chicago River on a grated draw bridge. He decided to do a dump not noticing a tour boat under the bridge. Hefty fines & law suites resulted. Don't understand those who illegally dump, get control of yourselves.

I don't put my hose out unless I need to dump so I have no use for an electrically operated valve.

I agree. No more of a bells and whistle than power windows which is not needed!

OK everyone. I've edited and/or deleted several posts for name calling and being far off topic.

The OP asked for opinions from those who have used the electric valves. Let's keep it to that subject and not hijack it further into the "dumping while driving" abyss.

Thanks for your help.

Rick
