Oh dear. Last night I caught a Moho dumping black tanks at a nearby Walmart. Their security cameras evidently had already seen it because the police came roaring up and surrounded him. Spoke to a manager at the store who says the moho owner will have to pay all the cleanup costs AND a big fine... and this store will stop allowing overnight parking.

I say he ought to have it all pumped back inside his lovely moho... and I don't mean into the tanks. 150 gallon black tanks

Good catch. Sadly, this is exactly why we can't have nice things.

Hi, that's absolutely horrible. I used to say that I can't believe someone would do that, but now I have to believe anything people do.

Wow, just wow. Where did this happen? The bad apples spoil it for all as we see more overnight parking restrictions and boondocking areas shrinking.

Reminds me of the Dave Matthews Band bus unloading their black tank on a bridge over the Chicago River. There was a tour boat under the bridge and passengers got hit with 800 pounds of waste. The driver that did the dumping had a $10,000 fine. https://www.newsweek.com/dave-matthe...rs-ago-1064129

My sister visited a winery in California where the owner allowed a moho to stay overnight, and found that when it left in the morning they had left 150 gallons of stuff in a ditch on the road out. We all know that CA has lots of public health laws... and the winery's owner had to pay over $1200 to have the ditch cleared and rehabbed. Now no RVs are allowed on the property. He had no pictures or license plates to catch the offenders. If I see this behavior again I sure as fate will use the phone's camera and call the police. Creeps like this spoil it for everyone. It has been 150 years or so since they figured out that typhus and typhoid were both caused by fecal contamination of drinking water. A modern doctor.might not be able.to diagnose it.

As long as people are taught that you have not done anything wrong unless you get caught, this type of thing will happen. Too many today haveno self respect or respect for others. It is me only.!

What an awful thing to do. This is a terrible thought, but I wonder how many times they did this, and where they did it, before getting caught.

Also shows how cheap they are. They pay several hundred thousand $ or more for rv but won't pay avr. cost of $5.00 to dump or take time at cg that has free dump for reg. campers, further cheap to stay at Wally world as some do.

I agree. All the older forums I was on had a "Like" button, but no "Thanks" button like we have now.
