Red face Touchless automatic dumping

Hello. Is anyone familiar with any kind of touchless automated sewer docking system on the market? If so, how much is it and where can I purchase it? I love camping and RVing but as a woman I would rather not deal with the icky hose and everything if I do not have to!😆

Yes, but they only start working around the 7th year after you bring them home from the hospital. Then around the 13th year, they start giving you a lot more trouble than it's worth and you go back to nitrile gloves.

I had two of those. Mine were were trouble free, and worked until the 18th year. The two newer models I have now have never functioned properly.

When I had my 2, for the first few years, I had my hands in waste, a few times a day.
It took some training to get them to automatically go to the dump station.

Y'all are killing me!

To the original poster - an example of valves that are electronic can be found here

But you will still need to handle the hoses no mater what you do - well, unless you hire someone at the campground...

If we can fuel an airplane in-flight... maybe the op is on to something. Though probably not in any of our lifetimes.

My wife has an automatic dumping system for the RV and never has to touch a sewer hose.
At home we have an older cat that sometimes forgets to use the litter box. We share that cleanup and are thankful that we have tile floors and not carpet. Does anyone want a senile cat?

Now if someone came up with a system that extended the hose into some sort of receptacle,you'd have something !! Don't think that's gonna happen anytime soon though.

Yes there is a touchless automatic dump accessory, the one I use occasionally is the Hyatt, or in a pinch the Hilton. There are cheaper ones on the market too. They also hook up the power and water included in the price.
Great system, you just show up pay your fee and when your done, you just leave.

LOL! Lots of good humor here!


But it's also a fact that there is no such device. The so-called automatic systems are merely electric-powered valves with a remote control so you can open them without going outside. You still have to connect the sewer hose to RV and the campsite sewer inlet, and store the hose away when you are ready to leave. So the auto system maybe reduces the number of times you have to go outside and pull the handle, but doesn't avoid the hose handling at all.

This may shock you but just because I am a man does not mean i like dealing with the icky hose either.

Hi ! Welcome to IRV2! We're sure glad you joined the gang!

Not familiar with that system! Have fun and keep her between the ditches!

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!
