Add-a-Dump

We are buying a new house in Nevada that includes RV parking. How can we set it up so that we can use the RV as a guest house complete with sewage dumping into the house system? In other words, we want to be able to provide sewage dumping at home. Is that possible?

Robin, indeed it is quite possible to add an RV dump at your house, provided the city approves it. Building and permitting codes will vary so be sure to check with the officials in your area. It is simply a matter of plumbing a three-inch branch into the septic or sewer system, and perhaps a venting system, which any competent plumbing contractor can accomplish. I was fortunate to have one just as you are describing when I lived in the mountains of North Carolina. Doable? Yes. Permissible? Ask first!
