    Getting van ready for 1st trip away and whilst checking stuff tried the waste master container that came with it.However it won't go under waste Pipe!
    Now I assume if up on levelling blocks it would,but if your not on a campsite for long periods of time what's the acceptable procedure.Also when at campsites do they have grates you just drive over and empty?
    Ps. My spout hangs to within 20 cm of ground does that mean I've got a long one or are they all like that:Eeek::Eeek::Eeek:

    sites with motorhome service points generally have grates you drive over and empty.
    however there are some which don't.
    if you could shorten your pipe then do so as it will make it easier in the long run to get the wastemaster thingy under, alternatively find a length of flexible hose that will be a tight push fit on the pipe and use that to put into your wastemaster thing.

    the length of time between emptying will depend on how big the waste tank is.

    Use a grass filter and drain straight to the ground.
    Whats a grass filter? Tis simple take a plastic carrier bag and fill with grass. make a drain hole in the bottom of the bag, place under your grey water spout and leave the tap open, water will drain away as you use it any bits get caught in the grass. When you move on tie up the carrier bag and drop it in the bin. Job done.

    A grass filter will catch bits but may not catch grease &c. We were at a THS at a sports club recently where grey waste was not to be dumped onti the field even through a filter. Fully understandable.

    Only dump grey waste where you know - in advance - that it is acceptable.

    We have a hose like aba mentions which pushes on to the outlet pipe to enable filling of a container that is too tall to go underneath.

    You lot must think I'm stupid!
    Firstly everyone knows washing up liquid and shower gel contains chemicals and would kill plants!!!!!
    Secondly do you know how much a bag of grass costs round here and you want me to soak it in dirty water!!!!!
    GET REAL

    I don't stay on many UK sites but in my experience a good proportion don't have a proper motorhome grey dump. They usually have some sort of grey dump point quite near though so I just use a bucket. The grass filter is fine at rallies at shows where grey dumps just don't seem to have been thought of.

    You can always use the black dump point if hedgerow dumping isn't allowed.
