I guess some of you missed the point. Yes, you have to be outside to pull the handle and then wait for the system to dump and then clean your hoses and then store them, certainly sounds like an enjoyable part of the trip! Mine is done by the time I walk outside, the SaniCon hose is left attached and just capped on the end, no flushing.

I guess things that are electrically operated are scary for some people. For those who are afraid....do you buy your cars with manual windows? Do yo disconnect your electric steps for fear of electrical issues?

I find it funny when someone who has never tried a product has an opinion about how its of no value.

It did, but after 2 failures, it was replaced with a manual valve. The DrainMaster system is a much better system than was installed in our coaches, from what I understand. In any case, I don't have a problem doing it manually. Because of our electric macerating toilet and the washer/dryer, I typically leave the gray line open. I'll close it the day before departure to allow the tank to fill for final dump of black and gray tanks.

Considered that some time ago... But was talked out of it.. And as it happens I now "Fully understand" why.

Imagine I had installed that, put the switches in my half bath (Easy to do direct access to the wet bay via existing openings and very easy to route wires) and one day this last summer I noticed tanks full and hit the switch.. Well that was the day the dang elbow on the dump line choose to break and drop the hose off the extension and the entire 36 Gallons dumped on the ground, plus 36 more of Gray.

Or.. I went outside, Pulled the handle, lost about a gallon before I closed it and replaced the elbow.

BIG mess v/s a much smaller one.

Or the hose comes out of the hole in the ground (has happened at dump stations, never on a site) or a hose breaks (have noticed on occasion BEFORE dumping) or .. well.. I like to be where I can see the hose and fittings when i dump...

So the cost/benefit. ratio just is not there. all cost, no benefit.

Yeah, mine got hit by a meteor once and spilled everywhere!!!!!!

If you worry about every POSSIBLE disaster, camping would be much fun!
