I know the concerns about using home septic system. Asking about a solution for 100 foot hose.
I have 70’ of hose to dump mine when I get home. It’s all downhill to the septic tank so its really no big deal for me. I was no the original owner of this property. My septic pumps up to my front yard so with tree roots and the line buried to pump the liquids to the front, it wasn’t worth the risk to me to try and bury a permanent connection closer.

We also try to dump at our last stop before returning home and use rest area toilets to limit the waste in the black tank. We then use dawn in the tank to swish and clean the tank on the way back. I’ve heard to stay away from the toilet pods as they can inhibit the bacteria growth you need to break down the waste in the septic system.
