Do you charge renters, if a claim is required?

Request by a potential renter

Who dumps the rv

Hey guys! My question is, if there are full sewer hookups on site, should I expect the renter to do the dumping process before I come and pick up? Obviously I would do a double check and do my black tank maintenance.
