Dump station line

Just a little reminder to all: if there are 6 RVs in the dump station line, and everyone takes 10 minutes to dump, the last RV in line will have been there an hour.

Maybe Labor Day weekend isn't the best time to do a 5 cycle dump/flush. If there's heavy traffic, etiquette says hook it up, pull the handle, pull the other handle, unhook, rinse, and move up. THEN stow all your hoses. 3 minutes per RV tops.

Ok, off my soapbox now.

So you were #6?

A couple weeks ago I was holding up the line (4 rv's) filling my fresh water tanks. A guy came up to me and wondered what the problem was. I told him that the water from the spigot only can run so fast. 90 gallon tanks take a while to fill.

Patience is the key at the dump station line.

I don't have a dog in the fight but if your expectations is for every person to dump in three minutes I think that's a little unrealistic. For many this is the last trip of the season, the kids are back to school, and it's time to store the rig for the winter and it may be the only opportunity they have to properly take care of everything. Best thing to do is leave earlier or later and avoid the peak travel times altogether.

This is when I like to go out, when school is in section. Yes I do have kids.

When we stay at private CGs which we do not do often. I'll pull into a full hookup site and dump, to avoid the long line at the dump station

Wow. There is no way we could dump in 3 minutes. Getting out our hoses and connecting takes longer than that. And then we have a Rhino Blaster Pro that we use to get our tanks really clean. Labour Day weekend is our last trip of the year, if we don't clean it well now at the dump station, we are screwed all season. There aren't random dump stations in our city to clean things out when we are home.

That being said, we typically head to the beach or somewhere else first after we check out, then go back to the dump station well after check out time so we hopefully don't block anyone for a significant amount of time. I fear we may cause slow downs at all the places we go though as since we've had the Rhino Blaster Pro, we have someone ask us about it every time (not someone behind us in line wondering why we are so slow, but someone parallel to us), and they want to get one...

Edit: and full hook up sites aren't common here for our provincial or national campgrounds.

This is a really good idea...

Guy in front of me Monday dumped his in record time. Just pull the handle let it go on the ground. No need to worry about hoses they only slow you down. I walked over with a gallon of bleach while he was still dumping his grey water and started pouring it on his black residue. Let him know i did not want to play in his crap.
