sandjunkie,

That might be the way to go on the 5ers. On my FSC2800, the stock sewer hose holder goes into the basement and there's an obstruction that won't allow it to be extended.

I extended the stock sewer hose storage..


That's OK..... take your saw and cut the tube
These stock LE models will only carry a 10 foot
hose in the compartment. Solved that problem by cutting
off the end of the tube and have the 20 foot
hose coil into a 5 gallon bucket. The bucket fits perfect

That's a great mod. My only problem is that is where my batteries sit. I might be able to juggle things around and do something similar

I extended my hose holder into the compartment on my FS2600, I had to angle it a bit to clear the obstruction. I used 4" white plastic drainage pipe and a test cap to plug the end and also angled it upward so the water could drain to the outside. The old one pulled off with a little downward force on the end of the tube. the new pipe fit on the door fitting and I secured it with calking and some plumbers tape strap to hold the pipe up.





SAS!

I enlarged the holes on my quickie flush to gain more volume (to fill the tank faster). The inside of the tank is pretty smooth and I always empty the tanks before returning to storage. My theory is the 'Brown Trout' will float out if given enough water moving at a sufficent rate, (50 gallons moving through a 4 inch openning) no need for scrubbing. I have not used my borescope to check my theory but from what I can see the inside of my tank is pretty clean.

You know...there are some great ideas going on here for taking care of the poop hose, but I've got a problem (IMHO) with having the darn thing in any of my compartments...as long as I can't add any fittings to it, my plan is to get about a 5" or 6" cx 6" piece of PVC, adapt it down to 4" x say, 6-8' PVC piece ( for a place to to allow for the 20 degree attachment fitting), and attach it across (or along with now that I've got rid of 6ft of sewer line!) and put my slinky in it- no going else where to "fish it out" and drag it over.

I do have to say that Howie made me think this...I have to adjusticate because his 5gal bucket mod is exactly where my 4ea 6v batteries are, so that's outta the question. Of course, Howie's got ALL of our heads spinning on what to do next!!

It still pains me because I know I gave up probably $50 to have that 'special' poop hose holder on the WW, and unless I want to manhandle the fitting on every time I want to use it, then it's a waste (however...right now I'm using it for my coiled airhose...maybe it's not such as bad thing!)...

<BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-title">quote:</div><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-content">Originally posted by high desert:

I bought the quickie flush from Camping World for $25.00.

The install was no more then a 10 minute job. You'll need a 1 1/8" hole saw, 1/8" drill bit and silicone sealant.

&gt;First determine the location.
&gt;Drill the 1 1/8" hole.
&gt;Mark and drill the 1/8" holes for the mounting screws.
&gt;De-burr all holes.
&gt;Add silicone to the 1/8" holes.
&gt;Put a layer of silicone on the mounting flange of the Quickie Flush.
&gt;Attach Quickie Flush to black tank with screws.
&gt;Wipe off excess silicone.
&gt;Determine location for hose extension, and mount bracket.
&gt;Shorten hose and attach with hose clamp.

Mich,

The Quickie flush has a built in check valve to prevent the black water from entering the hose. The nozzle has holes in all directions to spray the inside of the tank and appears to do a good job.

Clark,

Thanks for the recommendation of the clear extension...I'll get one next trip to town.

Wes </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

We went to Camper World yesterday and the quickie flush is now on sale for $19. As Wes said,
it was a 10 minute install.

Nice mod.......
