I’ve never used a dump station yet other than those on my site. Also, is there anything I should do to add to the tanks so I don’t get sludge in the bottom of the tanks. I don’t want a black tank issue so any help would be appreciated. TIA
Dump stations are a persistent issue. All but one that I have used have fresh water for flushing waste tanks. In that case I use the fresh water system in my TT to flush the black tank. I have a short hose and check valve system especially for that case.
Many Pilot/Flying J truck stops have a full service RV dump station.
All Wisconsin state parks with campgrounds have full service dump stations available for price of day admission.
Several county parks near my home have fee for use dump stations.
Search and ye shall find.
I wish you good luck and happy trails ahead!
