Finding the nearest dump stations??

Ok..we're still planning to go get our E21 in June come hades or high water, as it were. We probably will be forced to boondock at some points if CGs and NPs are only partially open. That said..are there any decent apps out there to help one find useable dump stations along routes?? Any siggestions?
Thanks! Fred and Holly

Congratulations and Happy Travels!

The “All Stays” app has everything displayed on a map. Campground, truck stops, RV supply stores and dump stations. You can use filters to just display what you need at the moment.

You can skip installing yet another app and check the web-based tool at Sanidumps.com

I have found the iOverlander app the best for dumps and off grid camping.

Just tried ioverlander, it missed the 2 dump stations (waste treatment plants) that are within 15 minutes of where I am.


RV Dump Station got 1.

Might work better in Canada.
I didn't download it, but found the search function on the website very poor. My initial searching at the Sanidump website worked well.

Our go-to app is Allstays. We use it 99% of the time, including locating Sani-dumps in Canada and in the states. I highly recommend it.

Android is by far the most popular mobile OS in the world. IOS is a far distant second. It's not even close.

In the U.S., it's much closer with Android OS having about 52% of market share. In Canada, IOS is slightly favored.

Point being, (and a pet peeve of mine) why anyone would make an app that only serves about half of its potential users?

Because iOS has but one simple version that will work on every reasonably current Apple device.

Android OS can vary significantly between phone manufactures. Plus US carriers can tinker with Android to add their own apps, bloatware, etc.

So its much simpler to cater to one Apple than to several Android based products.

On edit. Per Google, there are some 728 million iPhones in use. That is a very big audience so cater to for an app developer.

Ed, respectfully, there is but one version of Android OS and it is open-sourced. App developers use Android's SDK to create apps. Those apps are downloaded from the Google Play Store and will work on any phone running Android OS, regardless of who makes the phone. Now, different phone manufacturers will put their "skin" on Android OS to differentiate their phones from others for marketing purposes; but it's still Android OS at it's core. If you think about it, if this were not allowed, phone manufacturers (other than Apple) would just be competing to sell hardware. Currently, only the Pixel line of phones sold by Google run a stock (no skin) version of Android OS. In short, Android app developers only have to make one version of their app. It will work on all Android phones, regardless of manufacturer.

Thank you.
I was mixing up in my mind versions and skins.
