I live in a cul de sac with a sewer trunk to the four houses. Manhole is very convenient and I seldom use it, but the neighbors always look aghast when I have. One yelled at me for what I was doing. I said he did the same thing everytime he flushed. He thought a second and then walked away.

No you are just the first to say it. I hope you have your bathrobe on and a cold brew in one hand with the hose in the other.

Actually, the macerator is 90 miles from home at the campground.

Don't need the macerator at home. Just back the trailer down the cul-de-sac, pull up the person hole cover, conect the poo hose to the TT, drop the end of the hose in the hole and let 'er rip!

But, after seeing UPC's post, may need to bring it home!

I use the clean out that's in the drive next to the house, matches the campground connection and dumps to the city sewer. I can take my time and really flush the black tank.

We have a vacation rental cottage on the same 5-acre property as our house, and it has a separate septic tank. When it was built, I had a line run from beside its driveway to the cottage septic tank, just for the purpose of occasional trailer dumping when we camped without a sewer hookup. Never any problems or smell. A lot more convenient than running by a dump station in the CG or on the way home.

I have been looking into this at my parents house for when we visit. A friend of the family who runs a septic service warned us to not dump the tanks directly into the septic system. Most septic systems have a tank and a drainage field. The tank is supposed to receive the sewage from your house and allow the solids to settle and the liquids to separate. The liquids eventually get pushed out to the drainage field. If you dump large amounts of liquid into the tank you risk stirring up the sludge at the bottom of the tank and pushing it out to the drainage field. This could create blockage in the drainage field system which is expensive to repair and will result in a wet and smelly lawn...dump your tanks slowly!

We put in a dump station for our RV when we built our shop which also has a full bath. When we built our house we lived in our motor home and it was a life saver having it. While living in the motor home we dumped weekly and we never have had any trouble dumping a large amount at one time. Now we hardly use it we try to dump at the campground before we get home.
