What attachment for sewer hose?

We stayed at a campsite that did not have the threads for a screw in hose attachment.
You lifted the cap and it was a straight PVC pipe into the ground.

Typically they have internal threads that allow one to screw the elbow attachment into it. For example, I use the Camco Rhino hose kit.

When dumping- wife pulled the levers while I kept my foot on top of the elbow. Is this the recommended procedure when dealing with a sewer pipe without threads? Or is there an attachment I don't have?

There is a rubber connection called a "donut". A few states they are required by state law. Some Walmarts carry then, but I haven't seen them for awhile in my area, Foam Rubber Sewer Seal - Camco 39312 - Sewer Fittings & Adapters - Camping World

After having to use my toolbox to hold the sewer elbow in place the first time I encountered one of those, I decided to look for one of those "sewer pigs" that you fill with water to make them heavy enough to hold the elbow down while dumping. Before buying one, I happened to be in our basement and notice an old scuba weight belt left over from my diving days. After adjusting the weights to fit around and over the elbow,, Viola! It takes up far less room in the MH basement than anything else I would trust to hold down the sewer elbow, and is ready to use without any other preparation.
I've used it many times without any leakage, or it coming out of the sewer pipe while dumping.

A big rock or equivalent works fine.

First, I have two types of 3-step adapters, one with threads one without, that coupled with the "Sewer Donut" and a Hose buddy does the job no matter where I am, Of course you can use the threaded elbow as well, I use the smooth one becuse I have both kinds,

Hose Buddy "Never Hunt For That Big Rock Again"

I just purchased a sewer donut and a Sewie-Piggie.
I know the pig is a bit overkill with better, cheaper alternatives you guys have mentioned.
But I figured my daughter will love it; just to convince her it's not a toy!

As I recall from having seen an add for it. the Piggie is a fancy version (looks cuter) of the Hose Buddy I use, functionally identical but cuter.

In short..... Good choice.

You can always try living vicariously and hope that after pulling the black tank gate valve...that your foot can make it to the top of the elbow in time.

Note: This is not advisable after too many drinks, or if more than one hose section is in use.
