If on a septic tank be sure you clean the tank out on a regular (3 to 5 year) basis due to some of the chemicals used in holing tanks of RVs.

Title of thread and first post say "clean out".

And you don't never use any chemicals in your house septic tank. I think the septic tank on the lot is fifty years old and it's never been pumped out. Let's see my holding tank is 40 gallons and the septic tank is at least 1,000 gallons or more and I pump into it maybe three or four times a year.

Yes the clean out is what I am inquiring about. I figured it's a screw cap and can just connect my hose like I do at a park.

Sewer drain dump

My sewer line termination is at the back of the house where I park my TT. Replaced end cap with a 4" to 1" end cap and ran a 1" PVC pipe out the foundation vent. Connect my macerator and have a beer. When we had a 5th wheel, was told by the city sewer guy I could not use my "clean out" in the front of the house to dump, but I figure I'm OK as I am no longer using the "clean out".

Used Sewer Solution for 10 years with garden hose going into bathroom cleanout on side of the house. Had 4" clean out added when replacing pipe from house to sewer main close to MH. Very convenient. No local restrictions.

Well played sir, well played.

I figure if we are able to but the property in the future, I would probably just use it on the weekends when there's no one working. Less of a chance to be told not to do that.

When mu mom and dad had their house built... my dad had the builder put the sewer clean out a little further in the yard.... Daddy would pull into the space and hook her up... no an issues where they lived.

I have a septic system and use it occasionally. Maybe once/twice a year.

Better to seek forgiveness than to be told "NO!".

We are on a septic system. If the access to the pipe before the septic tank was closer than the 100' it is I might be tempted to dump into it. My concern is about a 30-40 gallon surge possibly overwhelming the septic tank and causing solids to get into the leach field. My neighbor is a weekender. Maybe I should try it on his system when he's not here. 😽😜
