Allowing a tank to dump while driving is very, very rude. As a motorcycle rider myself I can tell you I would be quite annoyed at someone letting his water fly all over me. Rude, simply rude.

Please, those of you that are doing it STOP! Be considerate of others. The road is not for your exclusive use.

I dump tanks while driving. Never much left in there. Not like a river coming out, just a trickle once in a while ( basically, I drain at campground but leave the valve open to empty the rest)

I never let it drain while in-tow. If I need to drain the fresh water tank I'll drain it the day before I depart the CG so that the campsite is dry when I leave.

I guess the motorcyclists were entitled to use the road without the expectation someone would be dumping an unknown (to them) substance from their RV.

As I said before - dumping while going down the road is an inconsiderate thing to do.

I do something similar. I usually don't drain the FW tank until I get home, but last trip I chose to drain the FW tank upon leaving. I drained into a bucket and dumped it in the woods beside the site. It took maybe 8 or so buckets, but that way the campsite stayed dry. I never drain while in motion.

Above all, be considerate to your fellow travellers. I can understand why folks might think it's OK to dump water while running down the road, because they KNOW what is being dumped - just water. HOWEVER, put yourself in the place of another motorist, either 4-wheeler or motorcycle, who DOESN'T know what is being dumped. In that case, wouldn't you be just a little concerned about what is being sprayed all over you and/or your vehicle ?? In this case, I vote emphatically for NOT dumping on the road.
