Usually in a hurry at the dump station so even if it has a threaded fitting it's quicker to use the rock to hold the hose. And for those stations that have the stell flapper the rock holds it open to rinse things down.

My DW won't get near the dump station. No way I would get her to hold it even with her shoe. So I need the assistance of a training dump station rock.

I use the stinky slinky that costs $3 and drop it inside the hole. No need to hold it at all. Store it in the bumper too. Save the good hose for full hook up sites.
The rock holds the lid open on the dump hole.

If the Rock is laying on the ground then obviously it fell from its normal position hanging from the water pole. Please put it back.

Thanks for the responses. Yes, his would be VERY nice to use to keep the cap open on the ground while I position and aim my cassette toilet spout!

Nope. Not a pet rock !!

B & B is right,,,,,it's to hold the valve cap open and out of your way,,,,,,AND sometimes it's used to "lean" on your hose end so it'll stay in place when you "pull the plug."
