    Hi

    I was wondering for people who store their motorhome on a secure site what they do with the pee pee cassette (for want of a better term!) when they return from a trip.

    I know the ideal situation would be to empty off before you return but with 3 kids this may not be possible to keep empty and we do like to wild it too, any suggestions would be great.

    Thanks :thumb:

    Thats exactly what I said to hubby last night and he looked at me like I was going mad :Rofl1:!!!!

    Did you have some kind of container for it such as a plastic box with a lid?

    nah.. just put it in the boot of the car .. it won't leak ( says he :Laughing:)

    or use a large bin liner if he is a bit fussy ..

    Normally try and empty before leaving a site if it has the facilty and if not either empty at home or the storage facility (it has a DP).

    Empty it before we take it back to storage either at home or on which ever site we are leaving.

    Hi Brodie
    We park at home and normally empty before we leave the camp, i know what you mean with the youngsters, last time out we did bring the cassette home partly filled so just emptied in the downstairs loo and swilled out with the outside tap, But then again we have no problems with storage as the vans on the drive, If not too far away could you not take yours back when empty.

    With an RV we always take it home

    With RV's we always take it home...that is why we have Macicators and long hoses to discharge the grey and back tanks down our sewage manhole... much nicer than standing around a drain / sink unit / dump point on a site ... :Blush: 30 gallons in less than 7 minutes... Fast!!!!

    Our current van is on the drive but it is looking like we may have both for a short time so the new one will have to go in storage.

    The thing is I know this may sound comical but i'm not sure I want the neighbours knowing we have a brand new motorhome - if you know what I mean. So it may be a case of bring the thingy home with us or getting the kids to cross their legs :Rofl1: :Laughing:

    We have had a new van for four years and it's never been home, again don't want the neighbours to know.

    We are in storage and it has a dump point so no probs

    Glad it's not just us, it sounds a bit freaky when you say it out loud!!

    Hopefully we will find a storage place with the one but worst case senario....back of the car it will be. :Smile:

    Never mind the ****pot contents, watch out for your cat converters now, best deterrent for a singe van owner I think is get some Smartwater from www.smartwater.com
    and put a label on the van, you can also use it for personal items like TV's Laptops, phones, cameras, familly jewels etc

    or leave the cassette where it is and take the cat convertor home.

    well Bob , you must have a manservant to coil up the discharge hose and pack it away.. it's anything but quick or free from smell.. and when the macerator blocks up and you have to dismantle it still full of shit and tangled hair you may change your opinion .. and don't say it won't happen, it wiil ( unless you and Mrs slobadoberbob are both bald..) it's only a matter of time.. believe me , I've got the T shirt... several of them. :RollEyes:

    Also, on several occasions, using the 3" dump hose, pulled the discharge valve and the dump point promptly overflowed and left me standing ankle deep on sewage .. much to the amusement of queuing French motohomers .. struggling not to laugh :Blush:

    oh yes, the joys of dumping.. it's never a pleasant job whatever method you use.
