Gypsy, it will keep those nasty odors and gases from traveling back up the sewer hose into your mororhome. Me I only open my grey tank when at a CG, I like the San tank to fill before I empty it, i like that big woosh of flow to carry all the nasties outa my tank.

I have camped most of my life and I don't understand why people think they have to have a P trap. If you keep both valves closed untill you need to dump no odors will come back up and you don't have the smelly job of cleaning the hose out when you move.

Don't the p traps in your rv keep the smell from coming in? I know you don't have one for the toilet but that's what the trap door is for. And if you get any smell from the toilet it's probably as much from your own tank as anyting else. I use the slinky type support and like it due to it being adjustable.

Along this line of sewer equipment, I have gone completely to the Rhino system of hoses. They are so far superior to the traditional 3" plastic sewer hose-- and only a few bucks more-- it's unbelievable. I also use a "slinky" type support.
The Rhino system collapses neatly for storage and stays put for curves and bends. It makes my life a lot easier for setting up and breaking down for travel.

Max, does the Rhino sewer hose clean as well as the traditional 3" flex. I have been looking at it, and wondered if it trapped any sewage between the pleats. Is it necessary to extend it to its full length to rinse thoroughly?

Dieselclacker,

I just unhook it at the coach, leaving it with the curves and bends in place, and the sewer end still hooked up. Then I run the garden hose into it for a little bit of time, collapse it. and store it-- It's wonderful (as mush as a sewer operation can be),

Good luck,
