I installed a larger pie plate you can find one in a marine store they are common to use for access holes in boats. We have a 2006 tropical

We didn't have this issue until we switched to Rhino Sewer Hoses. I had to take the end off to get through the access hole and put it back on before connecting every time. This past weekend, I bought a 5" access hole, and drimmeled it out and made it larger. Solved my problem for $20.

I found the Prest o fit, Blue line work great. Keeps a couple of extra hoses up front, and bought slip on couplings. I can go from 10-30 ft. In a blink. And it goes right in the storage compartment

On my 2000 Tropical the drain pipe is vertical and doesn't line up with the too small 4" hole. I enlarged both wet bay holes to 5" and installed marine access covers. I installed two 90 degree clear elbows which then lines up perfectly with the forward access hole. I am now able to connect the stinky slinky through the hole and avoid the edge of the compartment. Everything drains well now.

The thing to do is to get you a 5 inch, enlarge the hole and install and you are home free.
Why in the world they put z 4 inch deck plate in no one will ever know. You cn trim the ears on the hose but then you can weaken it.

We own a 2000 National Surf Side with the same issue. I used a Dremel tool to make the drain hole big enough to accommodate the standard size sewer tube. Not necessary to cut off the 4 bayonet connection tabs which hold the sewer drains together. A standard sewer tube end cap, the square kind, fits nicely over the hole in the bay.
