I use a 6"length of 4" white PVC pipe. Cut in half lenghtwise ,and that gives me up to 12 feet of support. Drill an hole in each end and screw together. Then place them on a sewer support system and bungie the sewer hose on that. Works great.

How did you nearly cut them in half?

Ken, I fully agree with you however I do not make laws or park rules and believe it or not I have been in parks where one of those (Park rules or city/state/county law/ordiance) specified "Smooth slope to drain, OFF the ground" (Las Vegas was the city).

Sewer solution....

I do not like this device because it uses a whole lot of fresh water, something we are running out of, to do the job that a few watts of electricity (Via a Macerator pump) can do and do better. It places a heavy (or heavier) load on both the park's sewer system and fresh water system. IT's a bad deal in my book.

Macerator works well.

I normally use the 3" though.

There is one called "Drain Master" Sells for like $150.00 for a 15 or 20 foot with fittings.. Lifetime guaranteee.. Looks very appealing on paper.. Till I see the price tag.. I may get one some day.

Great set up,
Honestly we don't poop in the MH, we find a place to do it or use the camp ground facilities,
I used to Boat on the Saint Croix (sp) and the Mississippi River's and used the toilet for poo and I couldn't stand the smell.
Yes we used Chemicals, and they stunk also.
Been doing it for over a year now. So far no emergency's .

I also used PVC drain, but the 3" size. I cut mine in 40" sections to fit in the aft DS bay compartment. Then I used a straight edge, i.e. long level or just a straight 2x4, and marked the cut with a sharpie and cut it with a hand held jig saw or sabre saw, turned it over and did the other side. Then sanded the edges smooth and Viola!,,, a rigid support that nests and stores in a side bay compartment. The 3" size fits nicely in the stinky slinky support and doesn't allow that dreaded sag, when you open the tank drain.

HMMMmmm - a FRESH WATER hose directly attached to a SEWER hose?

I'd think the health departments would be all OVER that one!

Most dump stations have non-potable water hoses to use for dumping and flushing and a separate potable water fill. So, I always use the non-potable water source with the Sewer Solution. In addition, there is no "direct" attachment to a water hose with the Sewer Solution. A vacuum breaker is included so the water source is protected from backflow.

REALLY?

Since the supplied install pics clearly showed an on-site hookup - and NONE of the CG's we use supply "non-potable water" for such a setup, I guess I wrongly assumed those gadgets DO require or use frequent potable water supply on-site for normal operation?

Sure, a full hookup RV site only has one water source, potable. I suppose some people who use it don't also flush their black tank with that water source using a backflow preventing anti-siphon or vacuum breaker device similar to that used with the Sewer Solution? No different in application or practice.

I wouldn't use my Sewer Solution connected to a potable water supply, even with its backflow protection from a vacuum breaker. However, I also don't usually use full hook ups and mostly do use RV or Sani dump stations, most of which have a non-potable water supply. If I don't have an appropriate non-potable water source for the Sewer Solution, I use the PolyChute.
