DW and I both just shook our heads. I got out and asked him if he needed a hose to borrow, that I would gladly let him use mine and he informed me no hoses were needed with this type of dump station. I politely pointed to the sign next to the dump site and showed him the step 1 and 2 on the instructions on how to use the station.
1. connect sewer hose to RV securely
2. place end of hose in waste receptacle before opening valves.
We decided not to empty the trailer there, didn't want to walk around in his freshly dumped stuff. Ours will just have to sit in our tanks another couple weeks until we get out again.
After reading this I thought it was just some Dude who doesn't know better. Until last week when we were camping.
I needed to dump my gray after three days so I dumped my gray into the blue boy and take it to the dump station. As I pulled up there was a guy with a horse trailer/camper just dumping on the ground with the cover to the dump propped open with a rock. I offered to let him use my hose if he didn't have one. He said he was just dumping "a little gray water".
He pulled up to to let me get to the dump and stopped to empty trash out of his truck. As I pulled up there was bits of TP all over the place and some eye glasses laying by the drain. I asked him if he lost his glasses and he came over and using a paper towel picked them up and tossed them into the trash. As he walked away I said "a little gray huh...?". He just keep going, got in his truck and left the park.
There is a sign there explaining how to dump your waste water. I still can't believe how lazy and or careless some people can be.
