Couldn't believe my eyes...

Luckily, I haven't had any mishaps...knock wood. I did see something unbelievable. I was a three back from a dude in a rental MH. You could tell it was his first time dumping just by the way he was looking around in wonderment contemplating the task at hand. Then, he just leaned down and pull the waste gate open...NO HOSE.

Luckily, one of the people in front of me chewed him out, cause I would've thrown chum if I got too close.

I think BombDoc already has his surveillance crew on "The Ridge" as we speak. BTW, just visited the vet 2 wks ago and got a clean bill of health and my 'anti FT Turbs' booster shot. Think you need to go to your local vet for one also.

Black Tank Flush

I have a question that I hope someone can answer. My new rig has an onboard black tank flush which is threaded. I have yet to see a rinse hose at CG dump that has a fitting. My thought for a solution is to carry several different sizes of repair fittings to temporarily install on the rinse hose and uninstall when done with the deed.

The only thing I am concerned about is dump station ettiquette; taking additional time to install/uninstall fitting making the folks behind me wait longer than they need to.

What have others done about this?

I have only used the black tank flush when at sites with sewer connections. I use a Y adapter on the water outlet, one for the white drinking water hose and the other for a regular garden hose that I use to flush the black tank.

Look up a product called a "water thief". As for etiquette- I'd only worry about flushing my tanks if no one was waiting, but I normally only call with sewer hookups. From start to finish, for my 5 tanks, it takes me the better part of an hour to dump/flush everything properly.

Thanks for both tips. And, HOLY CRAP! 5 tanks? You probably have 2 black tanks (1.5 or 2 baths), galley, grey....what's the 5th one used for?

2 blacks - 1.5 baths
gray - 1st bath shower + sink
gray - galley
gray - outdoor kitchen

On top of that, there are 2 sewer connections - one services 1 black and 2 grays; the other the remaining 2 tanks.

Combined, comically I have 210 gallons of gray/black capacity but only 42 gallons for fresh water + another 10 for my hot water heater.

Worse yet, can you believe that I empty tanks every 2-3 days?!
