All I know is that I still have Canadian water in my tanks from Osoyoos and I'm having trouble keeping the trailer on the ground due to all the hot air it produces………

Hey, Jim--you're giving away the secret to how Canadians reduce the weight of their rigs and get better mileage when towing. We'll have to make you an honourary Canuck and have you take the confidentiality oath.

Glen we are not staying Leavenworth, the campground is 10 miles from there. trying to avoid KOA's etc.
Next stop is Hells Gate state park near Lewiston then onto McCall ID, both those have water/electric, will give us a chance to check out systems.
Note to others picking up on a Friday - book weekend campsites way in advance!
As always, thanks for your help

Barry, wherever you are staying, if you download the Sanidump.com app you can search the location and it will tell you where the sanidumps are in that area and if water is available.

Sanidumps looks like a great resource, thanks Glen. It seems there is a dump station at the first park we are at, thanks.
I think I'm still going to have them fill the tanks in case we get there late and also to see how she tows full, we brought the 19 to mainly dry camp so it will be a good trial run

Here's a helpful list for Washington State RV dumps: WSDOT - RV Dump Stations
They are at rest stops and free and I think you'll be driving past at least two of them on your way from Chilliwack to Leavenworth!
(And they have fresh drinking water as well as dumps, in case that wasn't obvious.)
