I don't typically use dump stations. I avoid the lines and either stay in a sewer site if available or dump when I get home. SS works great in both cases. I do know one person that rigged an outlet from the fresh water tank on their TT and used it to pressurize the SS. Worked well for her.

I want the ability to THOROUGHLY flush and rinse my tanks, that isn't going to happen at your typical dump station.

They do make a gizmo called a water thief/bandit (PC police at work?) that will fit on any faucet threaded or not.

I recycle (born in Kitchener), collect compost for pickup by the region and I do not see an issue dumping gray water on the ground. In fact during the 80's they built gray tanks in some homes to water grass or the garden.
Those are "treated" solids...

The biggest issues with dumping gray water on the ground occurs near watersheds and in high use areas. Also a dish pan only holds a couple of gallons at best, not 20+ like many holding tanks. In many areas it has been outlawed an you will get a fine if they find out.

My last three houses, all had grey water fields. Grey has been going in/on the ground forever.

One even had a septic field.

In any campground I have used in Canada I have never seen a grey dump solution for wash pans or any rules for containment for trailers that don't have the facility. Common sense prevails with anything but as Kenny has mentioned Grey had gone into ground forever. As far as treating the solids here they scoop then out to a truck , add water and spray. Not sure how you treat solid waste.

The soil is a perfect filter, you need to watch more naked and afraid.

I sometimes pee on the ground behind my shop. Am I in trouble?

I don't need the stinky slinky or any high tech dumping mechanisms. My wife and I are early risers and we leave camp ground in the cover of darkness with black tank valve wide open trying to make as many right hand turns as we can before reaching Hwy. Just tryin to keep Amercia a little greener
