Sounds like the case in FL now in trial phase except everyone is still alive.

That's a yucky story. Makes me sad, and sick.

Yes! Very cute monkey.


Okmunky, I bet that guy was a weekend warrior. Because if he was a full timer he would understand. Us full timers need to stick together and when it's pooper time we just need to kick back and relax and have a drink!!

I'd love to see the monkey too.

In my early teens, my parents owned a pet shop. We had all sorts of monkeys at different times and for a three month period, I shared my bedroom with a Gibbon Ape.

Quite a childhood, now that I think back on it.

Thanks Rick and Corlynn! Gibbons are such marvelous creatures. My friends in Florida have 4. I love to hear them call in the morning. Now they are critically endangered (due mostly to habitat loss) so you won't be seeing any in pets shops. Theirs are retired from Grant's Farm in St Louis. My friend took care of them all their lives and the 6 of them all retired to FL together.

Waste dumping is a Zen event. Takes time to savor the ambience. Such things, if rushed, are lost opportunities for pondering.

I never considered the consequences of rushing the process, but they can be devastating, much like one of us being rushed. Hmm, something to ponder.

Especially if you have a macerator and a one inch hose.
Like to flush the black tank with the gray once black has been emptied.
Then fresh flush the black then add 2 minutes of fresh to the black for a gentle base.
Can't imagine why anyone would get upset waiting their turn

Because they don't do any of that silly time wastin black tank hygiene stuff. They just dump and and run and then post here - why does my bathroom have the stinkum and I can see a pyramid of paper and yuck - how do I get rid of them. Doh!
Just sayin.

Does anyone really believe that any amount of back flushing will cleanse the black tank or even the gray tank for that matter. They will still smell until you put deodorant in them. It is all the sloshing around while you drive that really gets rid of the crud.
Unless you have to pump your sewage uphill, a macerater is just a waste of everyone's time. The problem is that many RV'ers have some sort of wives tale on how to do things, most of which don't work or are a complete waste of time. However it is fun to watch these rituals performed. I call it Campground Hi Jinx.
Don't get me wrong, I also do some dumb stuff. Only I try not to do it if I will be infringing on other folks time.

I will be standing by for the joyous replies.

Actually I'm just killing time waiting for the Daytona race to start.

Lucky bugger.
Agree with everything you said above.
I am new to the macerator and I guess either the novelty will wear off or one day ill be up to my armpits in excrement and it'll be the last time I use it.
As for extra flushing, even if the only benefit ise the gate valve more than a couple of times a week it can't do any harm.
I have discovered in more than 1 campground that the dump station hose end is that stuffed that you can't flush.
If one day I do have a blockage I'll be satisfied I had done everything to prevent it.
Now I really am getting off the subject.
