And that's just the right front foot of his trained Springer Spaniel, Ranger. Or is it a pint of beer? Cheryl's foot is just a half lb.

Oh my! A full sewer hose? Average 15 feet? I don't do the new math! (5 down, carry the 1, 7.68 lbs per gallon....)

Or four tent steaks if you want to be double sure that it won't pop out. Just criss cross them like an X.

Those better be tough tent stakes! Lots of places have the sewer connection embedded in concrete!

We just bought one of the rubber donuts. Mostly because the rules in a CG I was looking at online said you were required to have one there. Cheap enough to have on hand anyway.

So how well do they work? Looks like if the pipe has much height, the hose would just pop it out. We have a 90 on the end so a couple of boards under the hose usually keeps it lined up so it doesn't have to be that tight.

The rubber donut is a "must have"! If the sewer pipe will accept it then your fitting will fit tightly in the donut and shouldn't slip out.

The gentleman we bought our Coach from had a weight for on the sewer end, His wife took some heavy white sew-able leather and made a pouch about12"x6" and filled it with lead shot. Just sit it on the 90, Works great

I use the metal, nail like, tent stakes. Get enough rope to go beyond concrete, hard ground or whatever.

I use a partial bag of sand. I would think it weighs between 5 and 10 pounds. I like that it slumps over the sewer connection and will not fall off.

I have 2 pave stones carried in the water bay. Similar shape as these. They work well and can be used in various ways with slinky and as a hold down.

I like this, fits everything and long nose is good for un-threaded. Get it about anywhere including Amazon.
