Sounds like my DW. she has chosen the living and dining rooms in the house. IMHO the two most useless rooms there. In the TT all Is shared.

I keep a tent on board in case she want to go back to the days before my paycheck came into play...

We bought a 2010 model from the 2nd owner, who claimed the toilet had never been used. To clarify, the entire camper had not been used the last 2 seasons. However, the camper AND toilet are now in used condition! And we are happy Campers.

You hear that a lot buying guns..it has never been fired....well it's about to be. If I ain't gonna shoot it...I ain't gonna buy it. Hmmm....unless it's a "throw away" gun. Shame on you if you know what that is!

That is very funny! I cover The couch because I don't want the dog to ruin it and I cover the chairs when the grandkids are there to prevent major stains; but not use the toilet. No way. Sounds like someone doesn't want to fool with the black tank.

Un-used RV toilet

For fun, throw a Baby Ruth candy bar in the toilet when you visit them.

I tent camped for 8 years and then bought a popup. At campgrounds, some people always questioned me about cooking in the popup, saying I would ruing the resale value. I told I bought the popup so I would not have to stand outside in the rain cooking, I did not care about the resale value. Besides I love the smell of bacon in the morning. I've had the popup for 15 years and just move up to Flagstaff 82IKWS (drastically moved up). Still learning on the sewer dumps.

If anyone has an issue dealing with the dirty stuff, man up and admit it., Don't make it sound like it is logical to NOT use it and look down on those that can deal with it, or make 'little' of people doing it and lay the guilt trip on them that they are not as informed as you. Pah-leeease! This kind of attitude galls me to death.
No issue dealing with dirty stuff, when necessary. 100s of thousands do it over and over, that's why there are so many comments/questions about black tank problems, right? I look down on no one because of how they use, or don't use, their equipment. Sorry you are galled, perhaps a shower would help.

it's funny how some people have an aversion to dealing with the black tank.

personally, i don't get it but i was a firefighter/EMT, so i dealt with a lot of unpleasant situations. couldn't have done it if i had that kind of attitude.
EMS can be very messy at times so you have to be able to push through any aversion you may have.

i don't see how someone can spend thousands of dollars on a RV and then force everyone to go use the campground bathroom, just so they don't have to deal with the black tank.

but lots of people have phobias so i'm not surprised.
