    About four this afternoon, followed a 2010 registered Bessacar for about 2 miles down the B4100 into Banbury. Waste trap open - "water" spraying everywhere! :Mad:

    My car was picking up a lot of spray, and we weren't that close behind. Then the MoHo overtook a cyclist - poor bu99er.

    Not the best advert for considerate motorhomers - I sincerely hope it was not a Funster.

    Is it not time for the UK to adopt something on similar lines to New Zealand;

    http://www.nzmca.org.nz/self-containment/

    The waste pipe of a vehicle must be sealed with a screw on cap before it leaves a site to go on the road.

    In Morocco a couple of months ago we followed a French van out of the beach camping at Taghazoute and he had his grey water tap wide open.
    There was a great deal of fist shaking and French invective directed his way when he overtook a number of his countrymen cycling to the market at Banana village. :RollEyes:
    What's French for schadenfreude?

    I posted a similar thread last year, leaving windermere c&cc site behind a bessacar with its grey tank open, all the way into windermere i was sprayed, tried to drop back but kept catching up with him.
    Front of my MH was sticky and smelly, needed a good clean.
    There is no need for it as plenty of facilities on site to empty tank.

    Seriously ??

    I would rather have grey water coming out than windscreen wash sprayed all over me when I am on the bike.

    Grey water is not exactly glowing in the dark with nuclear waste, but windscreen wash !!!! Jeeezzzz. And the amount of cars you see with mal-adjusted wash jets far outweighs the odd van who leaves a grey waste tap open

    I understand c&cc are offering "day passes" now that allow use if the facilities for four hours. This includes showers, washing up and waste.

    I have done that with my fresh water tank before.

    You still get hand signals from other drivers.::bigsmile:
