Your hook ups should be on the driver's side of the vehicle. Try to get it in the middle of the vehicle, so you can be closest to the hook ups.

All the hook ups then should be on the driver's side. Water, power and sewer dump.

I noticed at the local filling station that their sewer dump facilities are located on the passenger side if you pull your RV straight in, that then is unusual?

Nope the RV movie it was at the driver side behind the rear wheel. I still like that movie.
On mine I too have the dump in the back and my water fill is up front under the driver seat and electric is under the middle all on the driver side.

Just remember all campgrounds are not correct in the way they set up the hook ups. I was at one where they set theirs up for maximum occupancy and they set it up with water and electric hook ups which are set up, water rv electric rv water rv electric rv and so on down the line this isn't a bad way to do it unless you check in to the camp site and either don't have enough hose or power cord to hook up with. I carry a 20 foot 30 amp cord and a 50 foot 20 cord along with 2 20 foot hoses. For dumping I only have the one hose. I did hook up my gray and black water going to 2 separate outlets instead of one with two valves.

Re: Power hook-ups, sewer dump, which side?

Hi,
If you go out into the world, all hookups are on the drivers side.
But everytime I need power, I find myself throwing an extention cord
under the bus to plug it in on the drivers side. So, this summer I am adding
120 volt, 12 volt and speaker outlets on the passengers side.

Another good series of movies there. I remember that scene too but didn't make the connection with the movie that way. I hush that one on my hushhush, I really should go out and buy it for the extras on the dvd if there are any. But someone did upload that scene on you tube

Our water fill and dump are on the driver side at the rear. Electrical in the middle. I just have about a 2' pigtail with a male plug end that comes out of the bus and then I use an extension cord.
