Well you guys thank you for all your tips here. I called jackpots. They charge $30 per trip to pump my RV. At once or twice a week that can get expensive. So I called Crazy Horse Campground and they only charge $5 bucks Everytime I use the dump station. So I guess I will be resigned to driving this beast to the dumb station once a week. At $5 it's well worth the gas to go the few city blocks needed to get there. Thanks again everyone for the tips and advice.

We dry camp and often use a CG without sewer. The CG charges $20 for honey wagon service.

We have a large Blue Boy. If towing to a close by dump station, it's doable. If a distance it needs to be carried. If you have a truck and a macerator pump, a distance is doable.

Showering fills the grey tank the fastest. Navy showers are key (get wet, turn off the water, clean yourself, water back on and rinse off). Better if you can shower elsewhere - a gym, CG facility, truck stop, etc.

I am sure either way works--you do need to exercise you engine and tranny on occasion--just be sure the pump wagon knows what they are doing and they dont over vacuum/collapse your tanks.....

Yes. agreed. I have done a great deal of car work on automobiles of all kinds. When I am living in my RV during the winter season I fire it up and let it run for 5 minutes everyday. When I'm at home during the summer and the RV is in storage I start it up twice a week and let it run for 15 minutes Everytime. As well as keeping all the fluids full and fresh. I do this religiously because I believe in keeping all my vehicles in good shapes. The alternative is to expensive. 😨

I think the dump station is a really good idea. Letting gravity do the job would be a lot healthier for my RV's holding tanks. 👍

For all who are curious I took a look at some honey wagons for sale. They are a good option if you have deep pocket or can afford them. They come with plastic 200 to 500 gallon drum strapped to a basic steel frame double axle utility trailer, has the standard industrial grade sewer hose connected to a 1.5 HP 2 stroke gas motor, equipped with a macerator and safety switch which automatically shuts the motor off once your holding tanks are empty. Sounds simple enough right? Well a towable honey wagon like this will run you in the ball park of $6000 to $7000 dollars. Again it's just cheaper to drive to the dump station. LOL

Call the port a potty people most will rent a tank to dump in and they come and pump weekly or when you need

Thanks. Yah I did call the waste removal service. And It's actually much cheaper to just drive it to the dump station once a week.
