Well, I won't argue the odor point with you and agree that the sloshing around while driving is the best way to get the crude out. However, as I rinse my black tank after dumping, I can watch the water through the clear connector when I dump the rinse water and it gets more and more clear with each refill and dump... so I do believe it is doing some good by keeping the tank cleaner than it would otherwise be.

Having said that... I would never rinse at all if I were using a public dump station and people were waiting.

I think the difference is that we rarely ever stay in one spot for more than seven days and when I rinse I just dump the black and then run the grey into the black tank a couple of times and I'm good to go. Sloshing and a good diet are my friends

Not to change the subject but I went camping last weekend and it started to rain when I got there so I was running around hooking up everything. Later that day the guy beside me came up to me and said my son spoke to you earlier and he said you didn't speak back in a real smart a!! attitude voice. I didn't see or here the boy if the dad had a brain the size of a pea he could have seen I was busy.

Sounds like they will be a fun bunch to be next to. It looks like the little jerk is growing up to be a real PIA just like dear old dad !

When I have something to do, I blank everything else out so I don't have to do it again or do it wrong. I can hear people talking, and will answer them when I'm done.

Worst dump experience was at a road side rest area in Texas. We were headed home and needed to dump and this place was on the way. As we pulled up, the motorhome in front of us (has Florida tags) pulled in and the driver jumped out and got out his hose and pulled the dump valve and went inside. Several minutes later, like 10 minutes, he had not come out. So I get out and go up and knock on the door and he answers with a sandwich in his hand. He told me he was eating lunch and would finish dumping when he finished lunch...talk about balls....

We discussed the fact that the picnic area was on the other side and if he was not ready to move in 5 minutes...I had already called the DPS and expected them any minute. I don't know what they could do, but he hustled up and moved on.

Too many people do not have a clue that they are sharing this planet a bunch of other people and most do not care about your petty problems.
