The RV park in Williams, near the Grand Canyon, requires a support system for the sewer hose. CW has several available. Which one should I get for my MH based on your experience or they all about the same?

Cheers

Hi BigRedLancer,
I'm assuming you are refering to the 3" waste hose. If so, when I used the 3" hose I used the slinky style support. I tried the solid/slider kind, but it took additional storage space outside of the utility bay (had to be cleaned really good after each use) and never quite fit the distance needed.

I have gone to the macerator style of waste disposal. No need to support the hose. Everything, on the coach stays attached all the time. Just insert the end into the CG pipe and turn on the unit. For me, it is a much easier solution.

I went to Home Depot and bought plastic eaves trough ... I cut it with a hacksaw so that it fits in my storage bay ... the eaves trough wash off with a hose ... and a couple of drops of clorox and water sanitizes them ...

I prop the eaves trough up on some PVC supports that I have made ... but you can use wooden blocks or stones ...

There is no rationale reason to support the hose - you are better off with a dip in it anyway, to form a P-trap. But if a misguided park requires one, my solution is to not hook up at all except when actually dumping. Then disconnect again. It gives the tanks a good flush that way anyway.

I had bought the plastic expandable one. The plastic ones don't last long, especially in cold weather. Currently we are using a very short piece of hose running into a solid PVC sewer pipe which plugs into the ground sewer pipe. I had the "p" trap syndrome... I ended up with a frozen sewer line. But then I'm spending the winter in SW NC mountains and it hits freezing temps overnight.

Camping World has an inexpensive slinkey type that works very well, and folds up very small.

I want to have a trap in the stinky slinky. But if they want, get a section of plastic gutter and cut it into a couple of translortable sections. Use a bungee cord to support the ends from the rig and the elbow.

On our older rig, the drain connection is so low, that it is oftern below the drain. Guess they would expect me to park the rig on blocks to get it up higher.

Sounds like a typical "government" requirement. They know nothing of what they speak.

Have camped at a few RV parks in past couple of weeks in AZ and all said "The State of AZ requires all sewer hoses be off the ground". One resort said that rule would be in the new campground rules and regs when they print new ones.
We have the slinky type works great and alot of parks have a elevated sewer opening so this works ok for us.

So if they want it "off the ground", be very literal. Place a length of cardboard on the ground and lay the hose on that....it is off the ground.

It is specifically for sanitary purposes. I was told the real reason for this rule is that people were getting pin holes in their hoses from rocks and also from those star type stickers that are everywhere in the SW.

Hey BigRed, I use the "Slunky" with good success. It is available at CW and at many campgrounds. It helps to keep those pin holes out of your sewer hose. Good Luck.

I use the slinky one also --- I do make a trap in it by extending the hose outside of the slinky and then back on it. Works well for me. I guess if you really did not want the hose to touch the ground, you could make the trap and put a piece of cardboard under the hose where you made the trap.

I'm sorry, but I don't understand the fine principles of plumbing. Why do you need a P Trap? The park I'm in now has a concrete "island" containing the sewer opening, and the hose runs down from the waste pipe, along the ground, and then UP on to the island. So when I have emptied the tanks there is still waste water in the hose, so wouldn't the support be a positive thing? I'm new - only been rv'ing since December, so I have a lot to learn. Thanks.
