We almost disregarded this campground without even considering it because it didn’t have sewer hookups. But the beautiful site and the fact that we were ready for a change helped us to give it a second look. We have had our fiver for over four years now, and this is the first time we have stayed somewhere without sewer. We were a little apprehensive for two reasons – we’ve never had to watch our water use, and we’ve heard some horror stories about problems caused by pumpouts. After talking to some friends of ours who have a Heartland product also, we were encouraged enough to give it a try.
Here comes the pumpout truck.
It took some extra effort and thought on our parts – short, quick showers – being conservative with the dishwater – occasionally catching some water, like the shower warm up water, in a container and using it in the black tank. But we were pretty happy to find that we could make it a whole week without filling up our tanks.
That has been our main excitement this week.
We are glad we decided to stretch a little.
