Yes. However every once in a while the valve was left open.

I guess that was the first time i was wrong.

We watched a guy with a 500,000 motor home pull up to dump after the NASCAR races in NH in 2013.

His hose was 6 inches short of where the dump hole was and he still pulled the lever - running back to the hose to try and Arc it in.

it beat him to teh end and he then pulled off the other end at the coach and started to yell at his wife.

by the time they were done fighting with each other they were both coated in STUFF and left thehose there on the ground and drove away.

Unit Depreciation... 80%

remember to have fun - and keep it clean. literally
Your wife is a trooper.Was she waiting to do it?

Keeps your hands neat and clean.

You are the man! Wish we had thought of this when we went to west coast last year. For some reason the dump valve wasn't closing correctly and every time we pulled the cap .... Oh crap! Fortunately, DH always wears gloves and after the first time we used a "TUG" bucket. I've already set out a box of the 2 gallon ziplocks to go into the camper. I even stuck directions on the box in case CRS hits. Thanks.

We were up in Yosemite and dumping. Across from us pulled up a rental class C. Two guys got out opened the compartment grabbed the sewer hose and attached it to the sewer valve hookup. They stuck the hose onto the dump hole and pulled the "T". The hose flew off the valve hookup at the MH and covered them in blue stuff making a huge mess. Not knowing what to do I guess, they jumped into the cab and took off leaving the sewer hose. Gosh, they forgot to dump the grey tank!
Anyway, a big DP Class A pulled up behind them and watched the entire thing. The old trooper looked at the DW, got up and went to the rear of the coach. came out the door a few seconds later with boots and gloves on and went over threw the hose in the trash and hosed down the area. Had the DW pull the MH up when he was done washing it down. My DW asked, you would have done the same wouldn't you? Of course, I replied?????

Now I wonder if she meant leave it and run or clean up the mess they left?

These stories made me chuckle. I had my experience with the paper dam a few years back with the grandkids before I taught them less is best. I couldn't get my black tank to dump at all and I knew it was full. I used my flexible tank rinse hose and went at it from the dump side. Needless to say it let loose and I had a heck of a time reconnecting the slinky. My first shower with poo juice. Yuck!

I would leave about 4 or 5 gallons of water in the BWT at all times. Keeps the solids from getting really solid.
