Dumping Our Honey Wagon
However, when we make our annual pilgrimage to Michigan to meet up with family and friends, there are no RV full hook up camp sites available near the town we visit. We could stay in a full hook up campground - 2 miles away, but then we wouldn't be able to walk or ride our bikes everywhere, and most importantly, we wouldn't be near those we came to be with.
Once at our Michigan state park, though, we learned there is a pump out service which comes from Ludington twice a week. For $25 cash, they will pump out your tanks. Hallelujah!! We're happy to pay this to avoid all that other, and with only being the two of us, we figure a one time, mid-week service will take care of things.
We're were so happy, we decided to sell the RV honey pot right then and there. And by there, I mean right there, in Michigan, in Pentwater, at Charles Mears State Park. I put an ad on Facebook Marketplace and switched our location to Pentwater, Michigan. We didn't even want to give this puppy a ride home. We listed as never having been used - which was easily verifiable, and we priced it at $100. Our original cost was $148.
Now, with God and Google as my witness, I thought everyone knew what an RV honey pot was, and I thought that was the term everyone used when looking for and/or discussing a portable RV waste tank. It turns out though, many people have some other idea of what honey pot is. My ad received more than 1500 views in a very, very short time - with not one person asking if the item was still available. I don't think these people were looking for a deal on a nice, new, never been used, portable RV waste tank, do you?
Thus, I deleted the ad and posted it again once back home in St. Charles. However, my post was flagged by Facebook and was put under review. Yikes!! I was pretty sure I knew what the problem was, so I thought about how I could reword the post. I did remember that this product is sometimes called an RV honey wagon. But I took the safe route and posted it with the words right off the box - a portable RV waste tank, the complete kit.
In no time at all, we sold "ole gray" for $90, taking a $58 dollar loss. However, we could not have been happier to get this elephant out of our garage and out of our lives. I do sincerely hope the new owner is happy with the purchase. We, on the other hand, are quite happy now that going down the road, the back of our travel trailer spells out only FUN and, of course, this blog.
