I've seen a lot of things like that over the years. One guy told me...he just left the cap off, and cracked the tank valves open as he drove home. No need to empty the tanks at a dump station then.

I hope this is not a reflection of how they live at home, I feel sorry for there neighbors or they are not fit to live with other humans. In most cases animals have more sense.

Is it ok to let some gray water siphon off while camping to make room in gray tank since it is only shower water and sink water ? I know of some who do this not the hole tank mind you but just a little

I don't think it's ok, all waste water is suppose to be treated before it ends up back in the environment. Gray water is not as bad as black water how ever there are food particles soaps and detergents in gray water and what ever comes off your body from showers or washing your hands. Just think if we were allowed to dump gray water on the ground, who would want to camp in a camp ground, the smell would make you turn your head the other way, And the other thing is lets say there was some one else in the camp site just before you arrived and they were allowing there gray water to drain on the ground, here you are running your camper getting set up and now you are stepping in there gray water that's on the ground, now it ends up on your shoes, on your rug out side of your camper and maybe in your camper. It's scary to think what could be stuck to the bottom of your shoes, it could even end up in your tow vehicle. Yes there are endless combination how this could mess up things.

Many states ban it, most campgrounds ban it as well. As well as the items listed above, it also attracts bears, vermin, skunks, and other unwanted things to your site. (or others...when you leave) My answer? I wouldn't recommend it at all. If you need to empty, better to release some into a blue tote, or bucket of some sort and haul it to a dump station or restroom.
