Proper RV Dump Station Etiquette

Duration: 2:49

Many RV dump stations fall into disrepair due to contamination and are required to close because users don’t take proper care of them. Proper dump station etiquette is not difficult to uphold, and it only takes a few minutes to learn. In this free video lesson RV expert Dave Solberg teaches you how to neatly and quickly empty your black and grey water tanks at an RV dump station.

With Dave’s help, you’ll discover the correct way to navigate an RV dump station without wasting time and risking contamination. At most campgrounds, you’ll likely have other RV drivers waiting in line for their turn, so it’s important that you know what you’re doing when it’s your time to shine.

First and foremost, quick operation means regular inspecting your water system and keeping its components clean and firmly connected. When you’re sure that your system is in working order, all it takes is swift emptying of the black and grey water tanks. Once you finish, pull up to refill your potable water so the next person in line can take care of their business. It’s that easy! A little bit of know-how and some awareness for others, and you’re well on your way to upholding dump station etiquette!

    I always keep a small bucket under the hose connection whenever it is hooked up, connecting or disconnecting to catch drips. It’s easier to rinse the bucket than cleaning the parking pad. I store connectors and gloves in it when traveling.
