Oh no way. My own drain is enough!!!! In fact we mostly use park facilities so mostly gray water.

I did encounter a really great State Park campground host in Michigan. They had hoses out at the dump station for the Sunday Rush. Just pull up, connect and dump. That really helped move the line and get everyone on the way. She had a Tiara and wand calling herself the "Poop Princess".

Other than that, no way I would share.

I literally would have never considered this possible scenario. (And, this next part sounds snarky sarcastic- but it's a genuine inquiry.) Did you spend time thinking it up? Or is it the first thing that came to your head?

If they drive off with it or damage it... Oh well. I went out of my way to help someone and was burned. Wouldn't be the first time or the last time.
Same.

B) after the person moves ahead, you pull up, hook up your gear and dump. During this time you again engage in small talk with the person behind who's setting out their gear like you did in step A. Also acknowledge the person in front who's pulling away.

C) as soon as your done dumping/quickly rinsing, you move your gear out of the way of the next person and then pull ahead.

D) engage in small talk when you return to get your gear, wishing them well on their journeys. Then return and stow your gear.
I think I've never dumped at a dump station. Always at a full hookup site or at home with buckets (#1 and #2 but never more than 5-10 gallons).

This is a great post and one that I wouldn't necessarily have thought to get my stuff out or even pull ahead to stow it without reading it here or witnessing it first.

Well, to clarify I didn't think of it either, it was something I witnessed the first time using a dump station and I've just followed suit since then. (For all 2 times I've used a dump station.)

like your attitude. hope we camp next to one another some time. I have worked in hospital lab with all kinds of specimens, changed baby diapers and took care of my mother so poop i poop to me. As a total newbie - never having ever used a dump station yet, I hope you are the one there when I get there so I can get help if needed.

Only 1-2 minutes, but when there's 30 rigs behind you in line, they appreciate how those 1-2 minutes per rig add up.

A unnamed dealer I know had a customer install solenoid operated dump valves installed on the motorhome. He said it made it cleaner and easier to dump on the road. Sent the wife out to hook up the hoses and he pressed the button.

Never had anyone ask to use our hose, but someone did ask if we had an extra pair of nitrile gloves. We gladly handed a pair over. Figure that might be one less person who gets sick.

Never gave it a thought, but since we never go #2 in the camper and request guests to go #2 in the state camp grounds,the hoses are relatively clean and odor free. I would have to decline to allow the borrow based on relatively clean hoses and I would like to keep them that way.
