How would you like to dump your black tank without moving your RV to the dump station, even when you’re not in a full-hook-up campsite? In Australia, you can!
Getting hooked up and dumping tanks in a caravan park in Australia is different than in the US or Canada. They use 240 volts, so the power cord is different… the grey and black water systems aren’t connected… and full hook-ups are virtually non-existent.
Some of the most common questions we get about managing the systems on our campervan during our trip are related to handling these basics, so we thought we’d share exactly how they do it Down Under.
