When renting a camper van or RV, it’s important to know how to handle both waste water and fresh water. Dump stations allow you to empty your waste tanks, while water stations provide fresh water for your RV or camper van rental. Here are some tips to help make life easier in your van hire:
Use Apps or Websites
There are several apps and websites that can help you. Some popular options include Sanidumps, RV Dump Stations, and RV Parky. These apps and websites allow you to search by location and provide details on their amenities and fees.
Check with Campgrounds and RV Parks
Many campgrounds and RV parks offer dump stations and water stations for their guests. If you’re staying at a campground or RV park, ask the staff if they offer these amenities and where they are located on the property. Some campgrounds and RV parks may charge a fee so be sure to ask about any fees in advance.
Look for Public Dump Stations and Water Stations
Some cities and municipalities offer public dump stations and water stations for RVs. These stations are typically located in designated areas and may require a fee to use. Check with local authorities or swing by tourism offices to find out more.
Use GPS Navigation Systems
Many GPS navigation systems have the option to search for dump stations and water stations. Simply enter your current location and select the option to search. Some GPS navigation systems may also provide details on the amenities and fees at each station.
Bring a Portable Water Tank and Waste Tank
Our Camper Van is equipped with a portable water tank and waste tank which is great if you’re travelling in a remote area or staying in a location without access to these stations, Our portable water tanks can be filled at any potable water source, while waste tanks can be emptied at any location where it is legal to do so.
Finding stations are an important part of travelling in a campervan or RV. By using apps and websites, checking with campgrounds and RV parks, looking for public stations, using GPS navigation systems, and bringing portable water and waste tanks, you can ensure that you have access to these important amenities wherever your travels may take you.
