I think these sewer supports are needed if you are permanently parked or saying awhile in one spot. Be sure to leave some sort of "p" trap so sewer gas doesn't enter RV if you leave grey water open.
As far as "properly using your tanks" I think this means only dump black when about half to 3/4 full and use plenty water.
I do not use these supports as I deem them a waste of time to set up for only short camping trips.

Just a note-sewer supports are required in the state of Arizona-all campgrounds!

Nomad connects his hose to the sewer line. Now he has a sewer line filled with raw sewage between RV and sewer connection.

Actually if he dumps correctly he'll have a line full of grey water - not raw sewage.

Very true. I will also have a completely rinsed hose. When you have the hose on grade, the black water will come through with the most force, soiling the entire inside of the hose. Then, when you go to rinse it with the grey water, the 1-1/2" flow from that tank will only flow about to about half way up from the bottom of the hose, leaving the top half still dirty with black water nasties.

Why is this? Do they give a reason?

I leave my valves closed till I am ready to dump. I use a "Clean Dump" macerator system. RV Macerator Pump & RV Waste Disposal Accessories Quick, extremely clean and no stinky slinky.

We ran into that regulation at a Passport America RV park in Benson, AZ.
I could not lay my empty sewer hose on the ground even if/when it was NOT CONNECTED on either end.
When I said I had no sewer hose support they said it was okay to dump at the campground dump station without using a sewer hose support.
Some regulations make absolutely no sense!
