Another Idea, I have been In a camp site that was not a full hook-up, just water and electric, if the dump station is backed up with campers, I look for a full hook-up site that is empty. I back in and do my thing.

You are not alone, I've done that as well. Allows for a leisure dumping process...if that is possible.

I do hook up my tornado as soon as I get to the dump station and let it run while dumping the black water tank. The continue to let it run while dumping the gray & galley tanks. Dump the black one more time while running the tornado. Backfill the black water tank for a few, then shut off the water and disconnect the tornado. Hook the hose to the flushking and clean out the dump hose, then pack up and leave it for the next guy.

A funny thing happen one time, I just pulled in to an empty site to dump and in the middle of the dump a new person had pulled up and was looking at me like I was crazy, well guess what ........ I was in his spot, it was no problem he just thought I was late getting off the site.

Courtesy goes a long way, as does timing, If ya try and leave early am the dump station is likely gonna be busy, as is right at check out time.

No problem if using a recently vacated full hookup site either, I like the idea of after a week of conservation of water in the black tank to fill it with water and allowing the sloshing enroute to the dump to help speed things along.

I like to start a trip with several toilet bowls of water, a little calgon or downey in the black tank, and dont be too stingy when flushing during the trip, solids need liquids to break down so they can drain, being too conservative with flush water will create big problems with buildup solids

best sequence, dump black, dump gry rinse black while gry is dumping, dump black, rinse hose and go.

With 4 kids that use rolls of toilet paper and add little water after, if I am using the dump station I make sure that for the most part my black tank is flushed clean. I have had one major sewer plugging problem and that was enough for me.
(purchasing a Tornado flush tomorrow - sounds like a good product)

I dump the grey and then black tanks while DW fills sinks and toilet.
then we dump them. When I get home I flush until clean. Part of routine as we put things away.
