One less 'free' place to dump

Just received this update today May 6th:



We have heard from some traveling Escapees that a few Flying J truck stops with RV dump stations are beginning to charge a use fee. We contacted Flying J and received the following statement from their customer loyalty department:
To continue providing waste dump station services at Flying J, we are instituting a $10 fee to customers using this service. This has become necessary to cover the increasing costs of offering this amenity. These additional fees include:
ē Escalating expenses associated with normal usage and the misuse and abuse of waste dump stations
ē Rising costs from local sewer treatment service providers
ē Increasing expenditures linked to stringent corporate responsibilities

For our best customers, those that are members of Flying Jís Frequent Fueler and RV Real Value clubs, a $5.00 dump station coupon will be added to their card based on fuel purchases. The club member must present their card to cashier at point of purchase to receive the discount.
We appreciate your business and look forward to continuing to offer the best services and facilities in the industry.
Flying J also stated that the program is being implemented at all Flying J locations in the next week. Some will be monitored by a device that will allow you to pay at the dump, others will require the customer to come inside to pay for the service. Be aware that you will soon be required to pay a fee to use the RV dump at Flying J.

There's no such thing as a free lunch dump.

They need the money. Didn't Flying J go bankrupt and become part of Pilot.
