Tips on how to avoid a big mess when using a dump station.

This is the universal Sign For dump stations.

 Storage Oregon has the only Salem / Keizer RV Storage with a Free Dump Station !

Almost all trailers will have two holding tanks. The black tanks will hold sewage and grey water tanks will hold waste water from sinks and showers. Always dump the black water tank before the grey water tank so the grey water tank can clean the residue from the hose with soapy water.

 

A great idea is to wait until your black water tank is half full before dumping. You will get better tank evacuation due to the release pressure will be greater.  You might want to think about topping up your holding tanks with water just before dumping. Do not leave the black-water tank valve open when hooked up at a campsite. This will cause the solid waste to be left behind while all of the liquids drain.

 

A good idea is to use a heavy-duty 6-8 ft long sewer hose to make handling easier. Check and make sure that you have the right size fittings. There is a difference in the fittings due to changes in model types. Always a good idea to attach the fittings to make sure they are what you need before hitting the road.

 

Make sure to take with you two hoses, One for sewer, and one for fresh water. A good idea is to have two distinct buckets with lids that you can tell apart from the other so that your fresh water hose doesn’t get anywhere close to the sewer or mixed in with the other hose. You will not want to use your fresh water hose if they do due to health issues.

 

“Pack and use disposable rubber gloves. Learn to remove the gloves without touching the outside – peal them off (inside out) and throw away. Leave the dump station area cleaner than you found it.”

Of course you may already be a pro at dump station sites and that will make the movie with Robin Williams even more hilarious as he essentially goes through a scene of what not do when removing waste from the “RV”. (more…)

RV & TRAVEL TRAILER LONG TERM STORAGE CHECKLISTS

If you own a RV or travel trailer & even some toys like a boat, quads, and trailer,  you will need to find a spot to park them during the months of the season that they are not in use.  If you are lucky enough to have additional land or a relative that does, you will not need to concern yourself with storage fee’s. However you might think about how secure are my belongings? It can get real expensive quick when either vandalism strikes or even perhaps your stuff is stolen. Think also of the neighborhood you may live in and ask yourself if they have stipulations on street parking. Sometimes the city ordinance conflicts with your ability to store a vehicle that is not in consistent use. Insurance costs are often lowered if you can show that you are parking at a storage facility with fenced and secure parking.

Normally vehicles with low ground clearance cannot be loaded onto an auto transport. With the aid of boards on the ground to incrementally raise the ramps of the transport or even the aid of a low hill or curb that you can back up to so that the ramps can be positioned in a more level situation you can safely load a vehicle that would otherwise get damaged in the process.
