SaniCon Hose

We have a 2021 DSDP on order with the SaniCon Turbo option. How long is the hose? Can you add ad extension hose to it? The reason I ask is where I store the unit its probably 30 feet to my drain.

Not knowing what a "SaniCon Turbo" was, I looked it up.

Just curious what this does that the standard 3" hose dose not.

Yes. You can buy an extension.

I purchased 2 additional hoses as well as the hose cover with heat shrink for the ends and banjo fittings to connect them together. When parked at our pad at our daughter's house the sewer is behind the coach on the passenger side.

SaniCon Hose

You can also attach a garden hose to the Sanicon nozzle. It a good backup when you need the extra length. I have two 25’ hoses just in case.

Here’s a thread on extension hoses.

You are going to love the Sanicon Turbo. I just used mine for the first time, and it is so much easier and cleaner than the old gravity system.

Worth evey penny.

Would recommend a cover for the sanicon hose. When using the pump the hose does a lot of moving and will wear a hole from the movement. Can add the wrap over hose which is what we did when coach was new and after a lot of use hose working well.
We did live in LA for 6 months while remolding hose and pumped up hill 100ft. to drain twice a week and worked great. Hose needs 3/4 inside measurement.

Before purchasing the additional Sanicon hoses at our daughters house I originally started using a 3/4 inch hose to empty both tanks. It caused the Sanicon to overheat and shut down. I then went to using the pump for the black tank and gravity drain for the gray tank which worked without overheating the pump.

This is a great solution. Wondering did you just secure the four inch fitting to one of the new hoses? Then if needed insert the 2 nd hose for additional leaegth? Does the complete two addition hoses still fit in the bay or do you store them separately? If separately, how do you cap the end of the hose mounted to the pump? Thanks for the perfect solution to my situation. Many many thanks.

FYI


After months of looking for a replacement hose for our Sanicon Turbo system; they are now back in stock at Amazon. It is the 97521 part that is the 1 1/2 inch hose. I plan on adding Banjo fittings to both hoses and the nozzle to allow the extension hose to easily be added and to allow the nozzle to be more easily placed in the sewer orifice.

Howdy, I agree. Are you going to do something different for the sewer connection then factory fitting? It works, sort of, but am looking for a better solution.

Just a note.....I store my my extra hose in the sewer hose storage space, built into the side of the coach. Once you open the sewer door, it's a huge opening above the rear wheels. It's not a sealed area, so I reached in and closed off some of the small openings with gorilla tape, to keep it clean. I keep a collapsing hose, wash brush, hose ends and the SaniCon grey sewer end (I don't use their end) and some other small items. Very handy for storing items that are easily accessible.

I am planning on using the Banjo fittings in place of the Sanicon fittings on the existing and new extension hose. I was already planning on doing this on an extension hose I already purchased (not a Thetford hose) to allow me to add a second hose to the sanicon when needed.



My plan is to use the clear corrugated 1 1/2 inch hose I already have as "connectors" to the Banjo fitting for the sanicon nozzle. This will have a female Banjo connector. The existing sanicon hose will have a male Banjo fitting installed. I will add two female Banjo connectors to the new Thetford hose to allow easy connection to both the existing sanicon hose and the nozzle.



I don't plan on using the Thetford supplied hose connector as it is difficult to remove and re-install when I want to add a second hose.
