Patience is the key at the dump station line.
No... I was #7.
I did eventually bail out, though. I hauled back heavy, and hit the city dumpstation on the way home,.
I guess ya'll are missing my point: it appears common sense and the "neighborly RV community" all goes down the drain (literally) when it comes to the dump station line.
If there is a huge line, pull the sewer hose out of the bumper before its your turn at the dump.
If there is a huge line, dump, rinse, and move ahead.
If its the busiest camping weekend of the year, maybe think of others, and if you intend on doing your year-end tank maintenance, maybe you wait until the line clears.
I think way way way too much "stink" has been made about black tanks lately. its just a holding tank, and the cheap sensors never work correctly. Folks are getting crazed about a "clean" black tank.
Before the interwebs, how do you suppose the RVers of yesteryear operated? Did they all just fall into the fetal position? NO. We figured it out and used common sense.
