Installing new sewer hose

The original WASTE MASTER system was sold to Lippert. Should anyone wish to replace their original hose, you will find all suppliers offering 10' sections with a coupling with which to increase length to 20'. Problem is, I don't think the coupling will fit through the tunnel from curbside to streetside. I don't know if any of the other coaches other than the Apex's had the Waste Master systems, but if so, you will need the full 20' one piece hos e. It's still got Waste Master on the box, but Lippert is the supplier, at a cost of about $200 dollars. I just bought one from a local RV dealer. The upstream end is not the standard 4 pin twist lock, but instead is a system which reminds me of a firehose connection. I.E. a system that has a male receiver with two cam lock levers, one on each side. This piece will have to be glued into the elbow at the end of the manifold. Since there is no union at the end of the manifold, the least difficult option is to try to cut the old elbow off of the nipple coming off of the black tank tee, and then install a new 3" ell at that point, complete with the new hose coupling already glued in. The trick is to get the old ell surgically cut away from the nipple without damaging it. All the fittings were glued together too closely to get a clean usable piece at the end of the last nipple. Just another Apex problem to solve.
The new hose will retract to a minimum length of just over 6' , and does come with an identical valve at the end. Once you hack off the old hose, I would suggest tying a retrieval line to the old hose before you pull it out, You'll need a 6" scrap of 3" ABS for a nipple on the hose end of your new 3"ell. Don't forget, ABS takes special glue.

Why didn't you call Drainmaster in Hollister? They might've fixed you up with the threaded end and the one piece hose and shut off nozzle you need.

Yes, the Drainmaster guys had a replacement hose with the threads made for me when we had the Alpenlite, which used the retractable hose. I remember it not being cheap...I think it was $150ish but it screwed right on with an upgraded hose and nozzle design

that just what I
I looked up Drain Master when I first began, and the site for them seemed to be a dead end. None of the major RV dealers in my area had that brand. I then went to a smallish camping trailer place nearby, where I had good luck last summer getting various capacitors for my rooftop A/C's. The very helpful owner looked up Drainmaster in a huge parts catalogue, and said "Oh yeah, they were sold several years ago to Lippert." He then proceeded to tell me that. just what I wanted was available, and he could have it for me the next day, for $180.00. I didn't ask about what end was available, assuming that the end I have is obsolete, and the new hose would be what is would be period. So I got it, plus a new 3" ell and glue and stripped the old ell off the nipple, re-installed everything, and now I have a new sewer hose, with the spiffy "Peak-A-Boo" feature operational. I can't wait to try It out on some unsuspecting neighbor at an RV park somewhere.

Looks like you did a good job.

For anyone else as I mentioned in the other thread, there is a direct screw-on hose assembly available......here it is:

I replaced my sewer hose in 2013 with the Drain Master threaded end,one piece hose and shut off nozzle. It is expensive but much better quality hose than the original. For me it is worth it and I am very happy.

Converted our 07 40í limited to the Drain Master hose and valve.Manually extract and store the drain hose. Much nicer way to deal with the sewer hose.
