In campgrounds that allow tents, I take it as a given, since they have no kitchen to do them in. In RV parks, I get the feeling it’s frowned upon, especially nicer parks like Sparks Marina. In our defense, it was raining/snowing during daylight hours when we might have done them outside in our wash tubs – our usual protocol. This is the first time we’ve done them at the bathroom since we’ve been here (remember the RV is winterized right now, no doing them at the sink inside).
Here’s my advice on how to properly wash dishes in a bathroom sink. Do the washing in tubs still, so that food particles don’t go down the drain and either clog it or start to stink. Carry the dirty water from washing out to be dumped in a proper area. We dump our dirty “grey” water from the tubs down the sewer pipe in our site (just unscrew, pour, screw back shut). Rinsing the soap off of dishes into the sink I feel is okay, it’s only soap at that point, the food is off them. When you’re all done, clean up any splashing and messes you made on the counters so that things look nice for the next person who uses the sinks.
