If you’re boondocking outside Arches National Park for a few days, you’ll need to search for an RV dump station before setting out on your next destination. It’s part of the dry camping experience.
Before you do anything, sanitize the water spigot. You don’t know if the user before you adhered to the same etiquette as you.
Make sure your hose connections are tight and secure before emptying the tanks. If you spill at a community dump station, you’ll contaminate the area.
Always dump your black tank first. The gray tank water will flush out your sewer hose and rinse the connection to the ground at the dump station site.
If there isn’t someone in line, someone might be pulling in soon. So avoid flushing if possible and save this for the next time you’re at an entire hookup site.
