for a full hookup site.I have toted the 25 gal blue tank to dump 11 times since we got here 8 days ago.I am at a State park on the beach and there is only water/electric.I am not complaining,I like using my own shower,just wish I didnt have to go every 3 days ,4 times.Maybe I should have posted this in the singles forum for a good laugh. I bet 1 person could go 2 weeks without dumping. Still better camping than sitting home.

Grey water? How's the ground in the area? Are you right in the sand, or are you in a heavily forested area? If you are in an area where the ground is highly pourous, and has a large amount of plant life AND you are not real close to your neighbors, you could run your shower water out on the ground, but only as you make it, not draining the entirity of the tank on the ground that has already accumulated.

You would of course, need the right kind of dump valve cap, and an assigned garden hose for the job. And be certain to drain it where its not going to wind up in an area where someone would normally set up camp. Usually I route my line into a dense copse of bushes or trees so that the water is coming out directly on their roots (50' of yellow garden hose).

Be certain not to flush any large food particulate out this method, unless you are going to dig a leech pit so as to bury any thing left behind, or scoop it out before you leave.

I use a 3' hose section where I currently reside in my camper to handle the grey water. The grass along side has grown like crazy and the chickens roaming the area will eat anything that comes out that hose (food wise) that I miss by accident before I can get outside to clean it up!

They are a little sensative around here about gray water dumping.I am just venting.It was 95 here today and a long line at dump station.Plus it stinks,not a fun job. I am over it now and you wont hear from me for another 3 days

I say stay in your bathing suit, and have Karen dump water over your head outside. Seems like that is OK (at least in the Adirondacks, where the gray water fine is mega bucks, but outside showering is all the rage) If you actually take your shower inside, you can't dump the gray water. They must figure we are dirtier, if we shower inside.
