Laura and I used our new to us Casita
for the first time last weekend. We used it for two nights of drive way camping (hooked up to our electric and water and using the gray/black tanks); we then used it for one night at the local KOA.
When we got ready to leave the KOA, I put some extra water in the gray and black tanks since they were only 1/3 full. Since we had sewer on-site, I drained the black tank, then drained the gray tank.
I then proceeded to do a black tank rinse by using a wand connected to my "green" water hose (not my freshwater hose). After filling the black tank again by doing the rinse, I then drained the black tank. After draining it, I disconnected the Rhino hose from the Casita
and used my green water hose to rinse the Rhino hose. When finished, I rolled up everything and left.
1. Doing the black water rinse at my site meant disconnecting my white hose and connecting my green hose to the water faucet at my site. This means the next person connecting at this faucet would be connecting his/her white hose to the faucet after I had had my green hose connected. Is this proper procedure on my part to do a black water rinse at my site? We are new to camping and we want to be sensitive to RV park protocol and etiquette. If it is improper to do a black tank rinse at my site, then does that mean that I was supposed to have gone to the central dump for the black tank rinse, which kind of defeat the purpose of having sewer on-site?
2. Any suggestions regarding the procedures that I outlined above for dumping my tanks?
