technomadia Posted August 19, 2008 Share Posted August 19, 2008 Doug - that's good advice for typical camping. However, typical camping only applies to us sometimes. We do a good deal of boondocking too, where the nearest place to fill/dump will be hours away. Such is the case as this upcoming Friday. We'll camp a night first at a traditional campground in Reno to fill our fresh water, dump grey/black and do our final procurement supply run. But then we have a 3-4 hours tow into Black Rock City over hilly terrain, where there is absolutely no access to water or dumping until we return to Reno (where we'll again camp and dump everything before heading over the Sierras back into CA). A lot of boondocking is way out of the way - and that's part of the point of our journey, to experience it all and see things off of the beaten path. So, for our CCC, we do need to allow for towing with a full tank (fresh or grey.. probably never both) on a more than 'rare' occasion. And these are calculations we took into account when specing our trailer - so that when we do need to tow with a full tank, we're not grossly overloading ourselves. - Cherie Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
