New place to dump black tanks

Hello All,

Saw this article this morning and started laughing. This is a new one for me, I have never heard anything so ridiculous.

I thought everyone would enjoy. As long as you did not buy gas there.

They don't teach common sense in schools. Like water, electricity, natural gas, and even food on the grocery shelves so many people have no concept how it get's there, it's just "there".

I would be curious if anyone asked him why he picked the color of the cap that he did. Maybe he thought it was a new symbol for waste recycling.

Sad part is: There were probably a couple of kids in the back seat with their head down, thumbs on the screen, oblivious to their surroundings that learned nothing during the event.... History will likely repeat itself when they "move out on their own and decide to buy a self contained RV, to have "fun like when we used to go camping with mom and dad.... Of course, by then, there may no longer be any "disosaur sized vehicles or RV's" and no gas stations... It would be hard to dump the holding tank into an electrical outlet charger station......

Never use a dump station; camp at parks with sewers and don't boon dock. In the event I do want a dump station I have modified a septic tank lid (#1 tank) with a clean out/cap. My current lids are round/plastic but have enough screws to make removal a bit of a chore.

Haven't you heard George? The "new normal" is to dump the black tank while you gas up!

According to the article the witness notified the attendant immediately. I can't blame the witness for not approaching the guy doing this. What if he was PO'd at the station and angry? Maybe the witness was 85 years old and the "dumper" was 30 and looked intimidating. Or maybe, the witness was at the counter paying for a cup of coffee and told the cashier to "turn around and look at what that guys doing".

We shouldn't judge people when we don't know the full story. JMHO
