Head on down the road.
I guess if I rent a site without full hookups I would be hesitant to use an empty site with them. I paid for a minimum site and that is what I use. If a lot of people did this I think it would turn into everyone paying for no hookups and using the empty sites on the way out.

So with this small hose I can't do it so how do I clean out the tank really well, is there like an adapter to go from a small hose connection to garden hose?

I've seen that a few times where the MGHT end was cut off. I made a cheater out of a foot of 5/8" vinyl tubing and a MGHT hose repair end and a couple screw type hose clamps. It has the id to mate with the od of the hose end you are probably referring to. Just slip over the hose end and secure it with the clamp. I haven't had to use it too often, but, when the need arises it does the trick

A busy dump station with a line of rigs behind you is not the place to be taking extra time using a tank flusher.


Here in PA a lot of state parks have removed all threaded connections at the dump stations as people using tank flushers, which 5 years or so ago were almost non existent, became a huge problem by tying up the waiting line.
Agree totally. I dump a 5 gallon jug down the toilet just as the black tank is finishing and that cleans it out nicely. I do a total flush and rinse at home. I try to get in/out of the dump station as quickly as I can because I hate waiting too.

If you are going to use the Water at the Dump station "State Park,Holland,Mi" besides a "Water Thief" you will also need a "Umbrella" because the Water fill station with the "Tower with Spring valve on Top" provides a Truck and Trailer "Wash" when trying to fill your F/W tank! Youroo!!

I have one of those Johnny Chocks that hold the toilet valve open for you so you can add water easy to black tank. I also make sure I have plenty of water in my fresh water tank. So after draining black tank I turn on water pump and put chock in toilet to add some water. Usually only flush it once with a couple gallons. Then add a couple more to travel with and add chemicals. I then open grey to clean out my pipes and hose and add a little water to grey tank also. Usually in and out in less than 10 minutes.
