For new RVers, the anticipation of taking your first trip to the dump station can be like first day of school jitters meets colonoscopy.

We’ll cover what you need to know to survive your trips to the RV dump station so you can end every camping trip on a good note and with empty tanks. Then, the only tales of harrowing adventure will be those that happen while hiking, fishing, swimming, and the like during your camping trips.
