Sewer outlet upgrade

When we purchased our Carriage Cameo in 2008, it came with a really nice sewer hose system on it from a company named Drain Master. I really liked the connection system as it was a cam-loc rather than the bayonet fitting. The only thing I did not like was that the hose was really flexy and would spiral up at times....but the connection was very nice.

Fast forward to the purchase of our new 2014 Destination 36RL and I looked into my options for upgrading the sewer hose...especially since it was delivered with no starter hose and not even a cap fitting over the end of the sewer outlet.

I located drainmaster.com online and noticed that they had upgraded their hose systems....new hose that was collapsible in a 4ft to 1 foot ratio and it would stay in place...the head unit that goes into the ground sewer now has a clear section that allows you to visibly verify flow...and the inside of the hose is completely smooth with no ribs to entrap anything.

I ordered a 20ft adapter kit for $178.00.....it collapses down to just 4 feet and easily fits into a 20x20 wide by 7inch tall container. The install took me less than 10 minutes.

All I had to do was saw off the bayonet lock tabs on my outlet line...did this with a hacksaw blade in about a minute as they basically pop right off after a few strokes. I then used sandpaper to roughen up the outlet area to receive the new cam-loc fitting. I then sanded the inside of the cam-loc fitting that was to be PVC glued in place over the outlet pipe....did a quick fit test....primed everything, applied the PVC glue and put it together.......DONE!!

I took some pics showing the tab removal and the new cam-loc fitting in place and tried to attach them here but can only get one pic to upload...I took them as a very reduced file size (all 3 are less than 100kb combined) but it will still only accept one on this thread. So, I just included the pic of the actual hose system. I know it sounds expensive, but if you ever use one of these set-ups, you will not want to go back to the bayonet system.

Very nice for a super fast "dump", but I prefer the Sani-Com. Good choices out there. deSanford

I liked the system so much that I converted all my water fittings (including drinking water) to camlocs, so nice not to have to screw on fittings all the time and no leaks!

My coach came with a sanicon system but I usually use the 3 inch hose, I put cam-locs on it as well so I can use either system .

I prefer to retain the original attachment system.. That said, There are ways I could use the Drain master I actually have half an adapter and they provide the other half).

But what I use is a Tethford Smart hose, I use a 5" clear extension adapter at the tank end of the hose for visual confirmation.

I'm liking the Smart Hose.

good info folks....thanks for the input....I will check out the other systems as well just to see what all is out there. FYI.....drain master is coming out with a retrofit kit this fall that will allow the sewer connection to stay connected and retract into a closed storage tube when not needed. I am sure this will require you to mount the storage assembly under your unit, but it would be worth it to just have to extend the dump head to the ground sewer.

That would be outstanding, thank you for letting us know : thumb:
