How do you empty RV holding tanks?

You should consult your RV manual or manufacturer for detailed information on emptying black water and gray water holding tanks. But we can give you some basic tips:

  • Always empty your tanks at a proper dumping station, which you’ll find at most campgrounds. Dumping anywhere else is unsanitary and often illegal.
  • Empty your holding tanks when they’re at least 2/3 full. You can add water if necessary to make a less full tank easier to empty.
  • Always store hoses, connectors, and other holding tank tools separately from other items.
  • Clean any exposed areas and tools thoroughly before re-entering your RV.
