Check out CW. For some strange reason they give it 4+ stars. I bought mine from RVUpgrades. These folks have been great about working with me. I may send the whole mess back.

wouldn't trust the CW ratings. CW screens their ratings. I have posted some negative ones there, and CW eliminated them.

So, their product rating system is as good as their impression of a repair being completed. In their imagination. Thanks for telling us you experience with telling the trough to CW. If they can't publish it will they EVER speak it?

I'm off topic. I am trying to get over to Grainger today. It is still early so none of my plans are firm yet. DW could have other plans.

I got the Polychute Sewer System about 4 years ago. Yes it's expensive but it is a great product. Very rugged and durable. The only issue I have had with it is the O-ring will fall out easily, so I had to pay attention not to loose it.

At $159 for 16' and caps... and $149 for the 16' extension - it is expensive. But I have spent more than that already this year... it's on the shopping list.

I have the polychute system as well and think it is great. Camlocs only apply compression pressure to the gaskets while the bayonet couplings compress while applying twisting pressure which, if you believe some of the experts DrainMaster had quoted, can cause gasket failure in the traditional couplings. I built my own house extensions and adapters using camloc fittings from Northern Tools, Amazon, Tractor supply and some of the better rated hoses from rv suppliers.

I was thinking of doing the same thing but then I saw the Thetford system. The concept is great. The engineering is nonexistent. This is where the difference between the meanings of "designed" and "engineered" come into reality.

Please post pictures of your final setup. Be bold. Brag a little louder!

Same with my Walmart cheapo, and I can replace it many times for the cost of some of those others.

I gave up purchasing anything from Thetford. I had their Aria II toilet which gave me headaches and cost me a bundle in motor/seal repairs plus it always sounded like a farmers thrashing machine when it did operate. I was going to advertise it as a Boat Anchor but gave it in barter for services to RV Park maintenance person.

When I first saw the Smart Drain System I thought well THERE is another disaster in the making.

I totally agree! Sure, the Polychute waste system is expensive BUT you's get what you's pay for.

When all of my 3 inch stinky slinky's are gone, it's the Polychute system for me.

Has anyone used the Waste Master system with the bayonet fittings? Doesn't look as compact as their other product but much more industrial looking.

My vote is for Rino.I like the rigidity, mine seem to last 3-4 years before Murphy catches up, someone steps on hose ( never had anyone admit it) ,armadillo tear into one, and one I tore when elbow got caught and I kept on pulling.
