I would very interested if anyone has pictures using the drainmaster in a Newmar coach by going out the hole in the wet bay.

Motor Homes - Sewer Hoses and Storage | Drain Master
I installed that waste master hose system. I cut the ears off the outlet and glued on their adapter. I was new to rving and when I got to a campground where I wanted to stay for a few days, I realized there was no way to get that hose through the drain hole. I emailed customer service at waste master and they told me their product was not for class a motorhomes. I replaced the entire drainage assembly to get it back to stock.

When I did use their system, my hand slid off the clamp and their metal ring took a chunk out of my finger. They didn't care about that either. Nowhere in their ads does it say what it won't do. I considered cutting another outlet and fabricating an elbow to use it, but didn't think it was worth it. I found the pieces difficult to clamp together and bulky.

Thanks

Not the picture I was imagining. :sorrysign

Just planning ahead and looking for a more bullet proof system. I agree the way the Newmar piping is not setup for the Drainmaster hose due to the long initial connection on the Drainmaster.

A 90 degree clear elbow works perfectly. I also store an extra 15' of hose coiled up behind the grey/black gate valves. Never know when you need more.

I found that a 45 worked better with the Blue Line fittings.

This is what I got for mine. 45* bend clear with a sliding gate valve. An added slide valve so if you get a slight leak you don't get a face full of green sewer water. Just st fits in my Bay Star wet bay.
I think it's a Valera.

i'll be interested to see how the new non turbo version of the sanicon system works....if some of the pictures online are accurate, they include a short run of 3" hose with a clear 45 degree elbow on it.....

that short run of hose better not be the cheap stuff.....

Not to steal this thread, but I ordered the sanicon and thetford told me they don't know which system ( standard or turbo ) will be installed on my new 4327 and have not heard back from my dealer. To me that means standard. Anxious to try it either way.

I would be surprised if it is Turbo. I have seen pictures of the DS wet bay. No more clearance than last year so no room for Turbo.

i'm pretty certain this is what we are getting...

Sani-Con® Box Mount | Products | Thetford



we know more than the salespeople in the field.....and i am willing to bet that folks will take factory delivery and the factory people won't even know how to use the system properly....or what it's specs are....the sad truth....

to my eye, we are paying about $550 - $600 to have it sourced, installed in the wet bay, and wired with a switch.....you can buy it online for $325-$375....

I agree if they use the standard hookup of putting the motor directly onto the sewer outlet. I was hoping that Newmar would be more creative, but probably not if they want to keep the option open of reverting back to the standard 3" setup.

the turbo version sewer pipe adapter looks a little different...it does not match the pictures i have seen online....

Sani-Con® Turbo | Products | Thetford

we know more than the salespeople in the field.....
Wow, that says 10 gallons per minute. The turbo says 40 gallons in 50 seconds.

At campground, I leave the hoses hooked up and pull the valves when I need to empty. But on leaving, I'm very rarely in a rush, and I hate dealing with a crappy hose.

The difference seems to be a 1" hose standard and 1 1/2" on turbo.

i am often in a rush.....

i see myself using it often, but also dumping gravity style when i'm in a hurry...

that fact that it's easily by passed (just un hook the clear 45 degree elbow, it appears) makes it nice. i'll keep a plug in the bay for it, so when its disconnected, i can just plug it off and be done with it....

the other thing to consider is the fact that the turbo version pumps at such a higher pressure.....that has side effects....and a blowout would be much worse....

i also expect to be inspecting the clamps on this baby often...and i will do it before the first use.....you know the dealer sure the heck won't do it....when pumping the black tank, i don't want a clamp failure !

Drain Master

We use the Drain Master system...works well. Just pick up the angles and extensions necessary from Amazon and you're in business. a bit of measuring is required to get it connect correctly. If I can do it anyone can!
We used an clear extension to go down through the floor of the compartment, then made the necessary modification to that extension instead of the the valve. Goes together easily. Much easier than the "twist on" standard fittings. The entire assembly fits nicely in the compartment over the rear wheels.
You can view the system and review on Outside Our Bubble, David Bott does a nice job of making it look harder than it is, it does work well.

In hindsight I should have modified the elbow and not the main drain system. Watch out for that steel ring on the clamp. It bites.
