I have cheap hoses right now (one shorter, one longer) but they're not rotten so I'll use them until such time they look like they're about to go bad, then I'll go with some of the Camco RhinoFlex ones.
The Sewer Solution attachment that connects to the end of the sewer connection on the coach is a pump that operates from a water hose hooked to the city water supply. When its all connected it generates a good suction and forces the contents from the tank through the Sewer Solution heavy duty hose. You can actuality dump going up hill if need be. These have been around for a long time and it works great and its compact and clean.

I have not used one of those, but I believe the logic behind it is that the intense jet stream from the supply hose propels the waste water through the hose very quickly while it is breaking down the larger solids. Once again I have never used one so I'm not sure.

My shorter (about 6ft stretched) hose fits well in the propane compartment. I doubt I'll ever need one any longer than that just for dumping at a station. I can pull up pretty close and use that one.

I will store longer ones in a box on the trailer (or even in 4 inch pipes) for RV park hookups since the distance is more restrictive at hookups than at dump stations.

If it came down to it, I could just hang a longer hose (with caps on) over the rear ladder and tie it in place with some string for a quick drive to a dump station.

If anybody goes with a 4" PVC, get one longer than you need. After time, the slinky doesn't bunch up as much as when new. I used a HD/Lowe's thin, white plastic caps on mine... with a SS welding rod bent like a safety pin and inserted it across the cap. I also used the black sewer type tube. It has holes to aid in drying and stink removal.

We know a couple that have a Class B who use the Sewer Solution and they like it quite well. In fact, the folks next to us at a park last year with a huge Haulmark were using one. If we had limited storage, I wouldn't mind giving it a try; we may try it regardless.

Our friends with the Class B told us that they do not flush toilet paper. Many do not like or refuse to collect used TP and throw it out with the trash and we understand but we hear there is absolutely no chance of clogging if not flushing any type of TP.

I'll be in RV parks some to begin with so I can figure out if I have clog problems from TP. I'll try RV grade stuff since I already have some that came with the van. It's super soft and is supposed to dissolve really well.

If I can find an RV park with restrooms, that's all the better. I lived that way for 6 months in 2008.. had no bathroom in the 1967 Shasta trailer I had.. and no hot water for that matter in it. I used the park's restrooms/showers.

I figure that the black water will have to be dumped daily with regular use. I'm tempted to get a 15 gallon hitch pull rolling external tank so I can extend the time before I have to move the van. I have a new 0.5gpm aerator on the galley sink and want to get a 0.5gpm shower head too. It doesn't take long to fill up a 22 gallon grey water tank if you aren't careful.

This is pretty affordable and allows higher flow for times I'm hooked up to sewer but it's not meant for handheld...

But with a 6 gallon hot water heater (120v AC only .. the original one it came with) and a 22 gallon grey water tank, I am gonna be sponge bathing with a couple gallons of heated water in a bucket, more than showering while off the grid.

We flush tp, and have NEVER had a clog. TP that dissolves should be no problem. I can't see having to dump daily unless you have a really small tank and/or lots of people using it.

As I previously mentioned, it has a Thetford recirculating toilet which holds about 7-8 gallons tops including the clean water and chemicals you "charge" it with. I might get by dumping it every 2 days .. maybe. That's why I am tempted to get a 10 or 15 gallon tote tank. It would extend the time between running to the dump station by many days.

It's just going to be me using it, so I'll be able to keep tabs on it.

What would be the harm in mounting a section of 4" PVC on the side of the Van up where the wall rounds into the roof.

You could even mount one on the other side for symmetry and use it to carry fishing rods or something.

I suppose you could even buy some decal tape or something to help the PVC blend in with the Van.

I zip tied mine to the side of my 5er with large zip ties. Matched the black frame.

I'm not so sure I want wet, dripping sewer hoses dripping on my face and head trying to load and unload them.

Did you miss the frame part? The tube was about 3" from the bottom of my 5er.
