Truck stop dump stations
I used a truck stop dump station for the first time yesterday. I was at a race track for 3 days and there was no dump station available. There is a Love's truck stop 10 miles from my home so I decided to dump there.
What a disaster. There was a 90 degree turn to get to the dump site then I had to back up to line up and get close enough. Then the dump pipe is 8 inches higher the my dump port. (18 inches above the basin level) It was a job but I managed to "walk" the black water through the hose. Then I removed the hose from the dump pipe and drain the grey water into the overflow basin.
It would probably be OK for motorhomes and 5th wheels but totally useless for travel trailers.
Are most truck stop dump stations set up this way or was I just unlucky enough to get designed by a contractor who knows less than nothing about RV's?
