    Waiting at service point in a French campsite...

    Man, British, caravanner, pushing hosepipe INTO the pile of shite and pi55 blocking the service point drain

    Me "you do know that hose is for filling the fresh water tanks on motorhomes?"

    B'stard: "yeah but there was no other way to wash that lot away, and I don't have a motorhome!"

    Sounds like he doesn't drink, wash or flush the toilet either.
    Even a tugger or tenter needs fresh clean water.
    Beats my why some fresh water taps are so close to elsan points anyway.....I blame the campsite.
    Last site I was on the fresh supply was at the opposite end of the ablutions block to the Elson point.

    The tap/hosepipe was ten feet away. He had to unroll it to achieve his dirty deed

    If it was a campsite surely it's up to the staff to unblock drains , mind you , they would probably only do the same:(

    Which is why I never use attached hoses to fill my tank, I use my own and if I have to I have a nice adjustable wrench to remove attached hoses, of course I put them back afterwards.

    I doubt you could be more wrong, this is not typical of tuggers and tuggers as a group are not typically thick. I was a tugger for many years before I had a motorhome, I suspect many on here were too before they had motorhomes and would not have dreamed of doing such a thing. I have seem motorhomers do similar things in this country and abroad. There are dirty inconsiderate, stupid buggers who use caravans and motorhomes and its not right to label one group as "Typically thick"

    I have to admit some of these type of posts do make me smile, I suppose its because in my working life, I have cleaned many sewers/toilets and renewed associated pipework. Give the end a clean or cut a foot off, job done.:)

    Hi.
    On a site in France,Fresh water and waste water taps about a yard apart,at the far end of a grassed area about 15' x30'. Where "M/Homers?" had driven in,and filled their water tanks,and given the cabs a Wash,followed by C/vanners(And some Mh's who use Aqua Rolls) and their cassettes. These cutting up the area,till it resembled a quagmire.
    The last person to use either of the taps,did not roll it back onto its bracket,so each pipe end fell into this mess.
    Bad design ? Yes, but the twice we had been before,it was allways spotless and the site would be full.


    You could have got a Table spoon,from your m/home,got down on your knees and cleared it or him,i fear you have now branded all M/homers as.......unhelpfull? LOL
