we have an 11' camplite trailer with a small grey water tank. Many of the state parks have no sewer connections but do have a grey water disposal that looks like this.
Sometimes its higher than that.
I have been using a bucket. But its messy and takes 2-3 trips.
Is there a more elegant solution to this. Note that dump stations are too to walk. I agree with others, that is for tenters to dump their dirty dish washing water into, a Dump Station is for dumping grey water Tanks.
Effy, many places purposefully letting grey water drip on the ground will cause you to get asked to leave in no uncertain terms... and possibly fined a fair amount.
I am able to dump grey water on our family farm, but we have 150 acres including many acres of trees that appreciate the water. This is a very rural county, and I run the water out into the middle of the planted trees. Don't let it drip where I am staying.X-2, I know some of the dryer states, AZ, NM & a few others dumping grey water on the ground is not only acceptable, but requested, many other states, it will draw you a very healthy Fine.
You will be able to anchor the base of the seat with the seat belt. A 2 yr old will be in a forward-facing high-back seat, with a tether strap & hook at the top of the back, which holds the upper portion of the back tightly to the vehicle seat. You should find a location to firmly anchor the hook, preferably a U-bolt in the floor.
Fasten the seat belt and tether strap,
then put your weight on it with one arm and snug down the straps with the other. The seat should fit VERY tightly to the vehicle seat.
A 2 yr old will be using the 5 point harness in the seat. The shoulder straps should be adjusted in a slot so that they are above the child's shoulders. The chest latch should be at armpit level. You should be able to put the thickness of your hand between the child and the chest buckle. Any more room is too loose. If the bottom fastener between the child's legs has slots for adjusting its position in the seat, it should be moved to the snuggest slot that does not pinch the child.
Any seat that you buy or rent will come with detailed instructions. If you are planning to rent a RV, you should contact the rental agency and ask for details on how the seat can be installed in the vehicle.
It is quite possible the rental agency will have the seat installed and help you adjust it for the child. However you should double-check.I don't know where you find all these tether hooks, U bolts, and such, maybe in a class B, but my Class C ( and I believe many others) doesn't have such animals, the forward facing dinette seats, & sofa , has lap belts only & the work just fine, the only shoulder belts are in the front seats, which a child is not allowed to be in anyways.
I,d do it at home just to tick them off. only takes couple hours. do a good clean up. and in my opinion its time to move. nobody should be watched over.I lived in a area like that, I moved to the far out burbs. I make the rules..X-2
The general consensus is : Cheat and don't worry about it. Sad.
Not mentioned here is the number of people restricted to a site also may be to keep the wear and tear on the site to a minimum and give the site a "rest." I know one state park where this is the case. The sites were literally becoming big mud holes.
So go ahead and cheat, put a little extra wear and tear on the site. No one will know except you. Having fun is the most important thing. Be sure to check the rest of the rules to see which ons you don't want to follow.I doubt very seriously if the occasional one person over the limit created that problem, a lot of the Fed. CG's have a limit of 8.
I can't remember if I was in Fishing Bridge or a campground near it last year (we got moved out of a bear area due to soft-side PUP). Either way, I'll agree that it won't be a concern and I'm both a worrier and rule-follower.
Each day I was out before sun-up to take photos. Back at the camp a couple hours later and it was still relatively quiet because early-birds were gone and rest just waking up. Most people were quiet and respectful and rarely interacted with "neighbors" because you aren't in Yellowstone to sit around the camp. There was one group of young adults raising a ruckus at night that was frustrating. As others stated, if you're not that group, no one will notice you at all.
Thanks goodness for digital cameras now so you don't have to ration rolls of film at a place like Yellowstone. Enjoy your trip!Yes you do, my disc only holds about 2500 photos. :B
It's a******shoot, 64/81 is about 30-35 min longer, on a bad day at rush hour, you'll spend that long (maybe longer) on 17, I-64 you have Afton mountain, 17/66 you have a lot of hills, no real mountains.
Fine leaving Wilmington. Up the road around Windsor, it will be quicker to take 13. No tolls, these are mostly country roads (after you leave Jacksonville and New Bern) but well maintained.
A relaxing option - If you get on Highway 10 above Suffolk, you skip the heavy Hampton Roads traffic around Norfolk. Go up to Surry, VA, turn right (northeast) on 31 and take the free hourly ferry to Jamestown. Williamsburg is nearby.
It's called the Jamestown-Scotland Ferry if you want to google for info.X-2, you don't want to be on 17 from about Dismal Swamp, north, almost all heavy city driving, and 17 doesn't go directly to Williamsburg anyways.
Just got a 2003 Winn. Mini 24' V10. When I push the button to turn the overdrive off (at the end of the shifter lever) no light come on and it does not shift down to 3 rd gear. Any one else have this problem on this chassis? Hoping it is the switch in the lever.
Thank youAre you sure it's an overdrive light? That button on my E450 is the "Tow/Haul" button.
I asked my dealer, they didn't do them but recommended a Ford Truck dealer, I then called an RV Service Center, they recommended the same place, so that's where it went, like others said, Not cheap, but well worth it, as mine was way off.
We do not have a MH yet but will be getting one as soon as I have time from home and yard fix up this year.
We have two dogs that we love very much. One of the reasons we want a MH is so we can take them with us when we travel for an extended time. Here it costs about $50.00 a day to keep your dogs in a kennel and then when you get them home they have been sickly for a time. So having them with us seems like a good idea. Questions: 1. Do you take your pets with you on long trips? YES2-Do you leave your pets in the MH when you leave the camping area? YES, with vents open or AC on if it's hot out. We try not to be gone more than 4 hours. 3-Do you let them have the run of the MH while you are gone and do they damaged anything? He has run of the house, & has never damaged anything, except one of his toys.
Your general thoughts and comments on the subject would be helpful Thanks
