Most of the time that we do this has been our Halloween trip in late Sept/ early Oct. Very slim chance of someone rolling in on Sun afternoon, but it could happen. The other time is when we are on our big trip of the year. We stay through Monday to miss the crazy Sunday w/e warrior traffic. So far all has gone well leaving on Mon and doing that, though this past year we just hit the dump station.
Is there a dealer near you that has a dump station and water hook up to clean out the tank? A few members have made an adapter hose to hook up an outdoor shower to the black tank flush so they could use the fresh water tank water.
I believe the reason the sticker states to keep the valve open is to prevent overflowing the black tank. There is a vent that goes up through the roof. BUT the vent pipe could have a bad glue joint allowing a leak as well.... Happen to a friend with the gray tank.
