    Need to make you own judgment, sometimes there is just a small soakaway under the grate other times it runs into the main sewer, if in doubt don't you might end up standing in a large embarrassing dirty puddle.

    not normally, sometimes it might be the only option, but better to put down toilet point if in doubt

    the grid you refer to is really only to catch drips from tap

    Just do what @Tootles and @Bertie Bassett do, when you set off just open the drain valve and let it p**s all over the place as you drive along :eek: :LOL::LOL:

    Lights blue touch paper and steps well back :whistle:

    I can get a bucket under my waste tap Kevin, just drop a couple of gallons out and take to black water waste or toilet. Most sites have a drive over waste drain, usually a concrete pad with a drain in the middle, poss water fill point there too.

    If your on a site in the height of summer sometimes they like you to put the grey water under the hedgerow to put a bit of moisture into the ground.

    Just open the tap slightly before bed time and by the morning you'll have a nice empty tank !
    If done right the water will soak in before it can form a puddle, under cover of darkness no one will no . :wink:

    Just be aware of the foam mountain. Sometimes the bubbles form a little pyramid under the outlet if it runs too slowly


    So I have been told :)

    Being quite childlike I still like to melt the foamy bubbles in my bath with a bar of soap ,which got me thinking how could I apply this to the foamy pyramid ?
    Well in short you can't with soap ,however fear not after a bit or research I found out that a little salt and vinegar solution does the job ! :BigGrin:

    Try this.......Tie a bit of string from the bath overflow thing, to the appendage in question. Lie back in the bath, bracing your feet under the taps. Then pour a full box of Robin Starch into the water............(y)(y)

    I'm surprised that this suggestion is being 'liked' when a new-comer is asking a serious question. This is what gives MH ers a bad name. There is nothing worse than being directed onto a pitch that has a greasy, soggy area attracting flies. I have experienced this a few times when I was using the caravan and is a very selfish attitude.

    We always carry a waste container in case there isn't a MH service drain. It is kept under the MH when not in use.

    Look for someone running a genny and empty your grey into its fuel tank :D(y) If you can't find a handy genny then all over your pitch or the road is fine ;)(y)

    This is what I do unless the site owner asks me to put round the hedge.

    Why?? What's wrong with a bit of soapy water?? Try following a diesel leaking tractor on a large motorcycle. :)(y)(y)
