At both places we've had shore power, varying from amp. We've also had clean drinking water going straight to our rig. In all honesty, it isn't one, necessarily. People boondock all the time, where they camp without any hookups at all. The problem is when you're sitting still for so long that you approach full and don't really have a convenient way to drain the grey or black tanks. Usually, you can just tow or drive your rig to a nearby dump station, connect a hose straight from the RV to the intake, pull the release valves and wash your troubles away. Both times we've been in the shop, though, we've had truck trouble and been unable to tow our 5th wheel to a dump station.
The Crappy Side of RVing: What to Do When There's No Sewer Connection
Seasonal Camper Rules – Vacationland RV Park and Family Campground
The standard sewer line on a recreational vehicle leaves much to be desired. Little more than a length of thin, flexible plastic hose reinforced with wire, the lines are adequate for short-term use but break down quickly in harsh weather. Using PVC pipe, some simple tools and a couple of flexible rubber connectors, you can make a hard, durable sewer line that will stand up to the long haul. Measure the distance from the RV drain outlet to the sewer inlet.
How to Connect an RV to Full Hookups
