Where to Dump?

Most of our regular campgrounds are closed or has restrictions such as social distancing, limited occupancies and no access to showers/toilet facilities which are understandable. But no open dump stations?? . Even Flying J/ Pilot gas has their dump station locked.

Where does one dump their black tank?

Well today I decided to drive to Walmart and bought two-20 ft of RV sewer hoses and a connector then to Lowes and bought 3" Black ABS Charlotte fittings, a 24” pipe and glue to tie into my septic tank. We don't poop in the trailer so it's just urine and toilet paper. We won't make a habit of dumping at home but only until dump stations opens again.

Check out if you are having trouble finding a dump station.

My daughter took her TT down to Camping World last night. They have a dump station that is open 24/7 and had all the hoses needed to dump and rinse. Only problem was they used a white hose for a rinse hose. Best part was that it was free to dump.

I use a macerator pump at the house. Works good for dumping at home.

Most RV parks will let you dump for an added fee, usually $10 but now you bought all the extra stuff.... probably more than $10. There are a couple web sites for RV dump stations. Here's one:

You said 'most' of your regular campgrounds.... but not all? You may have to find different campgrounds temporarily.
