I guess that's my next question- this is very common among RVers as far as I can see. If you're willing to pee in it, why not poop in it?

Yeah, I don't get all the sqeamishness about using the toilet for whatever. That's like me asking my guests in my house to please not use it for #2 because I have to clean the bowl.

On the other hand I remember going on our third trip out, sitting in line for the dump station. The idiot in front of me lines up his dump valve more or less even with the hole and then... pulls his valve and dumps a week worth of "stuff" all over the dump station.

My son and I dive back into the truck and put the A/C on recirculate (It's a humid August morning in Georgia)

The aforementioned idiot then tries to clean it all up with a short piece of garden hose the state has left at the dump station. And he does all this wearing sandals and no gloves.

Flybob, were you in the service? When we flew on C-130 Hercules, Cargo Aircraft, that was the rule, First one that uses the Honey bucket was the one that had to empty! Even when we camp with friends and all leave together, everyone uses their own hose.

Dump station etiquette

[QUOTE=ependydad;1189863]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

Well, not the first thing but close. I am a piping and equipment designer in a papermill and as I design or do mill inspections I am looking for things that could get people hurt.
I am always asking 'What is the worst that could happen?' I try to see the worst and correct that condition. My DW thinks it is a curse. So, at the dump station ' what is the worst that could happen?'

I would loan my sewer equipment, they really should have their own.

I guess if someone ever asks, I will ask if their system is ASME, ASTM, or Metric.

There is typically no e coli in pee but we have pretty decent bathrooms where we camp so why not?? Pee has much less odor and it runs right out with no chunks AND since we're old house-boaters from way back- we also use a waste basket for the TP. Thus no TP stuck to tank walls or inside dump hose. And there is no argument about what brand of TP to use.
Purely personal choice. One day we'll be at a CG with "ugh" toilets and we'll use our own. Just haven't been there yet...
