Title: Official RV dump thread
Post by: JimmyS. on September 08, 2017, 11:09:18 AM
Ok, first off, just in case some of you don't know me, I am Amanda's other half :-)

So I am talking to a couple different places about getting any RV's dumped during the event.

Currently I plan to have them arrive Thursday afternoon or Friday morning.

Only thing I am trying to negotiate is, it looks like we will be right around $40 each. If enough people say they want/need to be dumped, I am going to try hard to negotiate that down.

So... there will be a physical sign up sheet on Tues and Wed. for anyone that doesn't see this post, but I would really like to get as close to a rough guess of how many rigs as possible via this thread.

Thanks guys!

I will definitely need this service.  Personally I would prefer it before Friday as I am arriving on Monday.

I will likely do it, just so I don't have to scrimp quite so much on my water usage.
I'll pay the $40, which I believe, is about what we've paid in the past.

However.  I *get* that it costs the company to put gas in their truck, pay the driver to drive around, hook up, dump, unhook, and drive on.  There is some "base" amount which is fair enough.
But.  My Class C RV water tank is 35 gallons.  My two tanks (black and grey) can't hold much more than that.
Some Class A RVs and possibly some trailers often hold as much as 75-100 gallons.  OK, folks *may* not have that much in their holding tanks.  But they might.

I know the dumpers cannot "gauge" the capacity used.  But really, I feel like I'm paying for the big rigs' use more than my own.
So, if whomever you get to do this nasty (and much appreciated) job is open to discussion, I'm suggesting at least two rates - "big" and "not so big."

If company sez "nope," well, there it is.  Just worth asking for, eh?
Thanks for setting this up!

Yeah, I will do my best to work something out like that or at least get the whole price down a little bit.

I can't guarantee anything but I will do what I can! :-)

We're in.  Will be in the North lot. May need to pull out and dump in addition to this service. But it's only less time to need to pack up and pull out.

Big rig, small rig?  I don't understand your issue Diane.  If one person takes a shower every day in a big rig, and one person takes a shower every day in a small rig....how is the water in the tanks any different?  Having a bigger tank only means a big rig can go longer without dumping. The water usage would basically be the same over 4 days, Monday-Thursday.  The guy still has to hook you up and pump you out, no matter how much water is or isn't in your tanks.

Sorry, Marj - not trying to be argumentative!
But I guaran-damn-tee ya that I'm not using as much water as the "big rigs."
I can make 35 gallons last a week - but I ain't takin' no showers (and yeah, you can probably tell...), using way more paper towels that I do at home, and generally being ultra-conservation-minded.  But using less than 5 gallons a day (mostly because I feed dogs raw food and need to wash SOME things!), getting dumped after 3 or 4 days...no, my tank isn't nearly as full as others.

But as I said, it has always been the same $$ for whatever size rig, and I'm willing to pay that. And as I said, yeah, I get the dumper guy has to do the same for everyone.
Heck, I might even take a shower in that case!  ;-)

Re the big rig small rig.  We have a big rig but not arising until Tuesday night so we won't have much in the tank if it's done in Thursday..no way would I pay more than someone who is using theirs from early Monday.

Post by: JimmyS. on September 13, 2017, 07:52:21 AM
I did the best I could.... I spent over 15 minutes on the phone with them trying to negotiate a lower price and I kept being told "I'm sorry, but that IS our lower price, it's normally $50 ea."

They are scheduled for Thursday afternoon. I decided that's the happiest medium there was because some wanted thurs, some wanted Friday.

Also, I talked to them about coming back out Sunday or Monday. Sunday they are not open and Monday they are booked for another large event near Columbus.

Sorry guys, did the best I could!!

Just to clarify, $40 and they will be out Thursday. :-)

For the folks leaving on Sunday or Monday there is a large truck stop on your way out that I would bet the farm has a dump station :)

I have everyone marked down so far.

We will make an announcement on the first day to remind everyone but payment type will be cash. You can find me and hand me money :-) last resort, I think Chris has a square reader but since I am handing the driver cash, that is the preferred method.

Thanks guys!

It's all good, I have everyone down!


Hopefully this doesn't get lost being so deep in this thread, but just a reminder.... cost is $40, cash is preferred and you will need to hand money to me before Noon Thursday.   

An email will also be going out to all the campers in the next few days and this info will be in it. :-)

Thanks guys!

I have 4 camping spots under your names, do I need to mark you down for dumping all 4?
