I keep a list of people and locations who dump the grey on the ground because it doesn’t matter. Then, when my grey tank is full I stop by their house and let it rip. Of course, I also publish the locations online because it doesn’t matter. [emoticon]

on the Lot my brother and I built in Mountains of Central PA I ended up installing a "penn state privy" basically a 1000 square holding tank with an box with toilet seat mounted over a hole on one end that is vented to outside.
We covered the whole tank with a 68" x 98" shed so we store stuff in it.

I installed a 4" chimney to vent the tank to outside, than added a 120v radon van to this vent stack.
first time I used it you set on the seat with fan running and the wind would just about suck you down and seal you to the seat, so I put a high current dimmer on the radon fan to slow it down [emoticon].

at the final inspection the the inspector said "I don't want to see you bury a pipe from that RV to the holding tank". so we use a blue tote instead [emoticon].

with 3 or more RV's using this we can go 2 years before the tank gets full enough. We know its time to pump out the tank if you get hit by "splash back" when using the inside seat [emoticon]

at new home I live uphill from street so I can use a masarator pump, but its just as easy to drive a couple miles down the street to use the local campground (that charges $20.00)

my RV storage area has a what looks like a sewer clean out right next to this building that is on the property. the building has a toilet so this clean out drain must work. I know the water there comes on.

I keep forgetting to ask the guy that run the RV storage committee about that.

Let me see if l understand this . It's ok for you to dump your grey water at someone's house but not OK for them to dump their great water in the boonies .

It doesn't bother you that people drain their gray water does it? [emoticon]

I'll pm you my addy. I don't give a schitt, literally or figuratively!
You can even get a beer out of my fridge to complete the "Schitters full" scene!

Hey, I thought we were trying to come up with the funniest response. I have other things to do than hold my water. [emoticon]

Besides, if I believed in the nanny state, I would have stayed in WA.

Thanks for the beer offer and your address!

When I built our home I put in a cement RV Pad and that included a 30 Amp Connection plus RV Tank dump connection that drains to the Septic Tank. I make a point to dump tanks before leaving Camp site or last option to dump at home. With a Truck Camper I’m dumping at the nearest opportunity don’t need that extra weight.

I seldom stay in campgrounds with hookups so I always dump at home.

I have a hard time thinking a couple hundred pounds makes much difference.

It does when you have holding tanks 7 ft behind rear axle.
Only once I drove with over 100 lb of gray water and purposing was getting out of control.
Dumping on west coast is not easy, but about every 500 miles you will find free dump at rest area. Then lot of places where you can do it for a fee.
For me it is easy. Dump fees are $5-10, when with my pass I can stay at several campgrounds for $7 with free dumping.
Beware that some campgrounds will charge you for staying and sill have dump fee.
