It would be very useful to have a list of RV Dump stations downloaded into my GPS - specifically for me, western USA and Canada

If pigs could fly, then airports could be sani-dumps

The Truck/RV fuel stations is a combined file that has dump stations.

RV Dump station

It sure would, nothing worse than being full and not knowing where the next or closest dump is.

RV Dump station

Have you checked out www.sanidumps.com? It has over 12,000 dump stations with GPS coordinates for the US and Canada? The site is used by over 673,000 RVers, truckers, firefighters,...

We are thinking of creating a paid POI that will be updated regularly for Garmin and other devices. We would love to hear from you on what you need and would a price of $5.00 would be reasonable. All updates will be free.

Currently we do over 10,000 updates/year to keep this data up to date and we are just trying to keep it cost neutral. Drop us a comment on info@sanidumps.com. or kc@sanidumps.com

Thanks!

I like the idea of a sanidump poi. I could make use of that. If one were to pay for it, I would like a bit more accuracy. I'm not into towing my Trailer somewhere and finding out there's no dump station. I checked that site and the dump station for Logan Lake in B.C. is 1/2 mile out and on the wrong side of the road.

Actually "split" POI file(s)

Actually "split" POI file(s) would be most useful. Examples: Western-US(free only), Eastern-US (free only), Canada (free only), NorthEastern-US (all), South-Eastern-US (all), etc.
This would keep the size of the POI file low, but would require people that did a LOT of traveling to get several files.
Personally the only ones I would be interested in are the free dump-sites.

Splitting a poi file and updating numerous files is a lot of work. Besides the file hardly takes up any space and the gps only shows the 50 closest anyways.

with SD cards available, people should NEVER worry about the number of POIs (there are, they say, nine million built in)

But, just to make sure that we understand you - and given that you will see the 50 closest as a matter of course - what advantage would split files be?

Dump Stations

You might also look for the Microsoft Streets & Trips megafile POI. Not sure if they only offer it in their format or if in csv, gpx, etc. but it has RV Dumps.

Would that be true if you were really full and a long way from home? Sometimes not-quite-free is better than nothing at all.

All 3 of my tanks are 40 Gallons in my Trailer. Wonder how much extra in fuel it would cost if they were just 3/4 full? Water weighs 10 lbs a gallon. No idea about Black and Gray. I'll pay before i lug it around.

I just drove from Denver to Chicago and this RV DUMP file would've helped tremendously since the cellular service is not always the greatest.
