We were at a city park that only had Water and Electricity, so Sunday afternoon at the dump station I pull up behind this trailer and she's dumping the sewer... knew she was real classy because she DIDN'T USE A SEWER HOSE !!!!!
yep, dump it on the ground and rinse it down the drain !!!!
I went around that dump station as I called the office and dumped elsewhere!
I've heard of that before, and given the fact that many dump stations look almost funnel-like, and have the water hose on an overhead spring, I wonder if maybe that's the way it used to be in some places? Are hoses a recent innovation in the world of RVs?
So you guys have me nervous... I've tent camped a ton growing up when I was in Boy Scouts. Just last weekend we purchased our first travel trailer. I'm afraid there is going to be a steep learning curve, and I'm hoping the mistakes we make are not the expensive kind. We leave for our maiden trip this weekend. So if you see some newbie doing something stupid this weekend, please don't be afraid to point it out. As it might just be us.

Keep in mind that some of these activities are down right dangerous.
We had folks pull in next to us and drop the landing gear to just touch the ground and started to pull away with 99.9% of the weight still on the hitch and no wheel chocks.
They admitted that they should have listen closer to the RV Dealers instructions when they purchased the RV a few days earlier.
I suspect that they would have dragged the RV forward bent the landing gear legs possibly dropping the 5th wheel on to the truck box.
