Years ago I cut my first piece of 6' vinyl rain gutter to lay my hose into. As someone said, it always flows down hill unless pumped. The homemade sewer hose delivery device always makes my compartment the high spot, and the sewer opening the low point. Make sure that you have some type of heavy device (I use a 10lb canvas bag) just at the end of the hose to keep it from jumping out at you. I have seen it happen. I never have an issue.

This tray also keeps the hose off the ground saving the movement on asphalt or concrete while flowing that makes small but nuisance leaks in your hose. My hoses last for years.

THAT is a great idea!

BTW, DW was getting checked out (she wants to go solo when I'm at work) on uphill dumping necessitated by our community's station; she recognized the sludge-rocket potential of the threadless hookup.

I realized why I married the ol' gal when she marched forward, clamped her foot atop the discharge elbow and called over her shoulder, "Open 'er up!!"

Though I prefer to use the 3" hose.. There are Three reasons I hvae a portable Flo-Jet macerator and installed power lines for it.

You.... Described one of them to a "T"

(The other two re.... DISTANCE (i've been in places where the run was like 30 feet and it was just too level to use the hose well)

The third is actually a combination of both the above.
Home is where I park it!

Funny, Robin Willims' RV was a rerun on TBS couple days ago. I laughed more this time around, although I recognized myself in too many scenes.

Then there was the lady who had been camping a while, got dressed up to go out for the evening and noticed her black tank needed dumping. She found out just how sharp racoon claws are when she straddled the sewer hose and pulled the black tank valve.
