Sewer Angle Problem

Hello!

I'm a new full-time RV'er and am having a problem locating a proper solution for my sewer outlet on my '98 Winnebago Brave. The problem is that the drip/rinse hole below the outlet won't allow the drain hose to go through it while attached. I can't seem to find a common angle that will allow me to overcome this either.

The reason this is important is that I need to be able to close the sewer compartment door since I will be staying in one place for long periods. This is possible with other RV's, but the Brave's outlet is just too directly over the drip hole.

I have attached a photo for reference.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

Peter

Can a 45 go on there??? Looks like it stops right in the middle.

It looks to me like this outlet has been removed, maybe for a valve replacement and re-installed 90 degrees off for some reason, only a prior owner could explain. Looks like it could be turned back to empty out the access hole.

Thanks for the fast replies!

The photo is a bit of an illusion -- the outlet falls basically right at center, so a 45 degree angle will collide with the edge of the rinse hole.

The rotation of the valve outlet occurred to me as well, however if I rotated it, the angle would actually point slightly toward the passenger side, causing a collision with the other side of the hole. At least that's my preliminary assessment. I think a photo of another Brave sewer compartment would certainly help me to know how this would work out. If there's anyone out there with a '98 (or so) Brave, a photo of the sewer compartment would be super helpful.

On ours the outlet swivels to point straight down or out like your picture, or anywhere in between. To go through the outlet hole I swivel it straight down and pass the hose up through the hole.

Same here, just swivel down.

Thanks for all the replies! Turns out it was super simple as you all noted. I didn't realize that the spout swivels freely and is clamped by the bolts at the valves. I thought the spout was part of the mount, so I'm super glad I was mistaken. Looks like the attached now.

Thanks again!

We had a similiar problem and remedied it by using a 45 degree connection inatead of the 90 degree. It then occurred to me that when hooked to the sewer hose, somewhat of an critter access to the compartment was apparent. I'm thinking about getting one of the items mentioned in the attached link as they are reasonably priced. RV Accessory, Motorhome Pest and Insect Control - RV-Critter Guard

Glad it was a simple fix!
