So Jim, did you end up putting in a dump too? Or just the electrical?

No, actually we don't need one. The Airstream resides very near one of the 6" clean outs (I think that's the proper term) for the ceptic tank. If I've got the terminalogy correct, this "clean out" protrudes from the ground about 4 or 5 feet from the foundation of the house. The pipe it is connected to appears to originate in the laundry room and runs over to the ceptic tank. I should be able to move the Airstream close enough to it to dump directly into the pipe without breaking anything.

Does this sound reasonable? (For those of you reading along, Shari is in the "building things" business). You can delete that part if you want.

Yeah that makes sense...that's similar to what we had - a 4" clean out by our patio - but we couldn't pull the trailers there. So we dug a trench & extended a branch over to the RV pad so we could dump w/o moving. We actually have two now...one for each trailer! Sorry, no CP...no more room!

You can see one of them in the picture below (Maxwell's - Birdy's is up front)

Aaron (Wahoonc) is the one that gave me the idea. He was talking with somebody about it in the Chat Room one night a year or so ago. I would have never thought about this simple solution without prompting by somebody.

Besides, mucking about in a septic system isn't my most favorite thing to do. And I probably couldn't get a single buddy to come help, no matter how much beer and ribs I offer!

No Thanks - been there, done that, burned the clothes after. But, ribs were a good choice to get my attention......

You may want to look into one of those Sewer Solutions that can pump uphill. That way, if you dump often at home - you won't have to move the trailer close, just park it where you always do. They are very proud of them and the cost is high but people swear by them.
