fill it up , take shower

empty grey before leaving,

the only reason to stay connected to water and to open grey when showering
is 'on demand instant water heater' and 30 minute showers

well different strokes for different folks

but i thought RV camping people were used to being adaptable

weather is cold, skip the worry about using hoses


We even camp this way in full hookup campsites the rest of the year: Only hookup hoses to fill or empy tanks and then put the hoses away until the next time we need to fill or empty.

The above actions also prevent a pyramid from forming in the black water tank right under the commode.

After further review, makes sense to me.

In Mexico years ago I hauled a queen waterbed as a dry camping reservoir. I had to drive the pickup very carefully because of the weight. I have no idea what a queen waterbed mattress holds in gallons but it was a lot. A hundred plus miles to the nearest pumped water.
