When I stop in a campground I am usually there fore at least 5-7 nights. So I plan to hook up.
I have to say plan because for the last 3 years I have only needed electric since I had no plumbing in my unit till this year. Mine will have full bath room but will only be used when hooked up.

Mine is being set up in true Mutant style and will have NO TANKS of any kind.
My take on the no black/grey tank is I really didn't want to carry around a tank of my own crap with me.
While on the road I'll usually drive till tired and then find a place to park n hit the bed.

Tim, the list of things we don't understand is long and distinguished.

For example: you just invested eight paragraphs on something about which you profess not to care.

Last spring on one of my stays at a state park in the Fl. Keys, I was talking with a "neighbor" who had managed to book around 2-3 weeks of consecutive nights in the keys. It involved going from one park to another and back to the first park. It also required moving to different sites within the parks. One night he was one one side of me, the next night he was on the other side, and a 3rd night he moved a few sites away.
He had a travel trailer, and what I found really strange, was his hooking up his sewer hose connection, even though he was only staying in the spot for one night.

As you said, "To each his own", (whatever trips your trigger)!
BTW, some owners also polish the wheels and wash the bugs of the front cap every time they set up camp. ......(my coach usually has a "multi-state" bug collection on the front cap for all to see).

My shore water is always connected where available. I hate the sound of the water pump operating in the middle of the night!!! And, I am up in the middle of the night frequently..... (:
