Taking a dump !!

Well, actually dumping is more my question. As I have stated, this is my first MH. Can someone give me some basic infor on dumping. Most of our use of the MH is going to be attending races at tracks that does not have facilities for dumping. So what is available on the road? I think I have seen a few rest areas that offers this service, but not sure.

Depending on your state, rest areas are often equipped with dump stations. Also many of the truck stops like Flying J, etc have them and for a fee you can use them. Most campgrounds will also allow you to dump for a fee.

I wouldn't put much faith in that dump list. Just as an example, it lists a Rip Griffin Truck stop at exit 503 on I-20 in Texas. That hasn't been a Rip Griffin since about 2003, maybe longer, and it doesn't have a dump station that I know of.

If you have a smart phone, there is an app called Sanidumps. Also, if you have some campground apps, they will show campgrounds and other places (State & Nat parks) that allow you to dump. Some of course charge a small fee if you are not a customer.

Of course if you know where your enemies live......

I'm betting on at least TWO window wells full!! Ahh... The cogs are turning now!!

Joking aside... Most truck stops that have RV specific fuel islands will usually have a dump station available and a fresh water source for filling up, OR operating the "whirly turd", "turd whirler"... AKA Sani-Flush

Flying J truck stops have dump stations but they are $10. Get one of the RV or frequent fueler cards and it's $5.

You might look into a macerator like the FloJet. Kind of pricey but we can pump our tanks into the sewer vent at the sticks and bricks house about 100' from where the MH is parked through a garden hose. Sure beats searching out a dump station then not having the use of the bathroom the rest of the trip. It also has saved us when we could not get close enough to the sewer hook up in a CG.
