Winter sewer fittings

Are there RV sewer fittings that go from RV to 3" PVC so I can eliminate a flexible hose? Thanks.

I'm sure you could make one, but why?

I am looking for a way to do away with flexible sewer hose. It will be a permanent location.

i did it once. i bought the sewer connections from an RV dealer and then the PVC from Lowe's. cut it and put it all together. if you will be in a very cold environment, consider wrapping the PVC using heat wire (also from Lowe's)

I'm sure it can be done but it will need to have some flex ability, if not you'll probably have leaks every time your rv moves in the wind or as it settles on blocks. You could use flexible rubber elbows available at hardware stores in different sizes, and they just clamp onto pipe so it will be easy to disconnect when the time comes.

I have seen them too. The RV dealer will have the adapter to mate with the RV but... I VERY STRONGLY RECOMMEND having some flexible hose in the line.

Why.. "If the rig's a rockin' don't come knockin'"

Ok in my case the wind can get serious here (no trees) and thus set the rig to rockin.. With a solid line all the way this is a bad thing.

With some flex,, even if it's only a few inches (I'd go with a foot) it just works better.

I like the idea of a short piece of sewer hose on a rigid line. Thanks.
