There are a couple apps you can get for your new smart-phone to help you find places. Just search in the app store.

I've found many rest stops on the interstaes have free dumps and some stores like Cabelas and Bass Pro Shops. But there are lots of others for free or cheap.

One think you'll want to find out is if your bathroom sink drains into your black tank, or to the grey. On my van, it goes into the black tank. I was needing to dump every few days before I figured that one out. I knew I wasn't poopin' that much, but I can usually go a week before needing to dump if I limit my use of that sink.

We mostly camp in Provincial, State or National campgrounds even when touring. Your site might not have a sewer hookup but they often have a dump station for registered campers to use.

Win - the 59G plumbing diagrams for the 2014's & 2015's show both sinks drains into grey tank. PDF: http://www.winnebagoind.com/diagram/201 ... _plumb.pdf Is it different on your new 59G compared to the previous one?

The bathroom sink in the 59K looks like it drains into the black tank. (Confirmed for 59K: http://www.classbforum.com/phpBB2/vi...=24059&#p24059

I had a Class C in which the bathroom sink drained into the black tank.

Re: dump stations - I'd say not overly difficult to find a place to dump. RV dump stations is one of the categories in the RV GPS we have but I have not had to use that category.

No, I was speaking of my old van. At the time, it seemed like that was going on. But with the other odd aspects of it, who knows how it was plumbed.
