I am not sure why carrying 15 to 20 gallons of fresh water, until you get home is a problem ? 100 to 160 lbs. ? We have never been on a long trip, so not sure what I would do, I do like filling up @ home, I know what I am getting, Soft - Filtered H20.
Back when we had a TT and owned land up north, I would drain water tank on our land, before we left, but not on the HWY !!!


I believe dumping water @ a camp site or on the HWY is very inconsiderate !!!
There must be a better way !!!

Yes, for the most part I agree. I would also add that there are a lot more inconsiderate acts done at camp sites besides adding fresh water to the flora. Examples: not picking up your smoke butts and/or bottle tops, adding smelly bacon grease to the fire pit or that last pile of doggy poo before leaving. Oh! I think I just started a new thread for inconsiderates!

Because we owned or own land for about 16 - 18 years we have not spent much time in campgrounds, now that we sold our land and have a small MH we will be taking short trips, and I guess we will find out what goes on out there ???
I am think most campers are good people !!!

Could be considered Rude to dump water at a campsite that someone will come into after you. You would not want to come into a campsite that was wet and water was running and pooling in areas.

While we are on the subject of dumping the fresh water tank, how often do you dump the water in the hot water heater? We often have 3-4 weeks between each camping adventure.

We've gone all season never dumping the hot water tank. After arriving and hooking everything up, I'll open up a hot water faucet to let any air out, and then light the water heater. We've never had a problem. Hope this helps.

I drain everything after every trip. Most times opening both faucets then low point drains will drain WH as well. If you want to see what happens if you don't drain. Put 10-15 oz of clean water in a Tupperware type container loosely cover it and leave it sit on the counter in your RV until the next trip. Before leaving open container.
