Sewer Hose

Sprung a leak in the passenger side compartment where the hose attaches to the solid plumbing. I cut the hose and made a temporary repair with a
Walmart bayonet fitting. I was thinking about replacing the factory hose with a 28'Drainmaster but now am rethinking. At home I run several lines to get to a septic connection which I use for the Coach. Drainmaster says the head cannot be removed from the hose. So my choices are to just run a 15' Rhinoflex in place of the existing hose and then use another connection hose when hooked up. Or buy the drainmaster and cut their hose and install two bayonet fittings so I can hook up my hose when I get home. Anybody got any thoughts?

I have the 28' drain master it works well. You are correct about not being able to add more hose. I am also concerned about that(I have a sewer connection 4' from the motorhome at our house but some camp grounds have been a stretch) drain master (lippert) has a 20' "extension" I have been thinking of using one or more as a "custom " setup so I could add leigth.

My original hose became disconnected from that location just after the electric gate valves while at an RV park in AZ last March. What a mess - gray water, but a mess. Ran to Wally World and got a wet vac for clean up.

I eventually bit the bullet and did the 28 foot drain master hose replacement as others have described and have been very pleased with the results,

I connect to my home sewer via a PVC adapter I fashioned that connects to the cleanout port. I don't use it as a permenant connection but just use it as needed.

You can buy extension hoses from polychute or at least you use to be able to. You added them to the side with the bayonet fittings at the valve. Just checked they still sell them at polychute. In my opinion these are the best drain hoses. I've had several different ones and all ways had some problem with them. I always wished they had a cover for the valve end that you stick into the sewer connection. Everything is sealed except for that end, ended up making my own from black PVC plumbing fittings.

Is the hose pretty durable? I carry a 15' and 10' regular sewer hose (Walmart) with the red connectors which might serve where you need extra length or when the Sanicon hose has a "malfunction"...wouldn't often need to use it with your set up. I am amazed how fragile the Sanicon hose really is...

My experience is the waste master/ drainmaster- polychute is very durable and well sealed.

I have seen several references to Waste Master / Drain Master / Polychute installs. I am not 'handy', but would really like to install the Waste Master on my 2017 Anthem. I can not find anything on it by searching on the keywords. (I'm not for sure how to do searches except with keywords.

My issue is how to prep the coach so that the cam lock connection is permanently attached. I don't mind having to hook the hose up each time from underneath, but also would like to see how others have done it.

Has anyone done this on an Anthem? If so, are you happy with it, and was it complicated?

I hope this is not hijacking this thread, but I have not been able to find anything else on the subject.

Cat, unfortunately Polychute no longer makes the hose. Here's the quote from a company representative:
Unfortunately the manufacturer of our hose is no longer making the hose. Essentially, we are out of business. You may find a suitable alternative at www.drainmaster.com, their product is similar to the Polychute.

Thank you,

I have the Waste Master version of these sewer hoses. The initial camlock connection is made by cutting off the bayonet "ears" on the coach sewer connection, sanding it smooth and glueing the camlock adapter in place.

To avoid permanently modifying the sewer connection on the bottom of the coach I chose to use a 90 degree swivel connector (bayonet connection) on the coach sewer connection and added a 6" clear connector to bring the connection out to the side of the coach. I cut the ears off the clear connector and glued the camlock adapter to that. That allows me to still connect a bayonet style sewer hose directly to the coach if I need to and also gives me an easy view of the waste and water coming through the hose.

The 90 degree and clear connectors swivel toward the back and stay on the coach since they don't extend far enough down to be damaged while driving.

Here's a YouTube video from David Bott that shows the installation. Although his coach sewer connection setup is different from ours the basic process is the same.

Bummer about polychute but drainmaster is all so excellent. For installation search---on You Tube for waste master installation there is a good video on it.

Thanks so much for the info. This is exactly what I have been looking for. I was/am still not clear how I would make the bend underneath the coach if I wanted to make it permanent, so I really like the way you did it.

Same place mine failed. I was lucky it was just a small puddle. Do you know what the outside dimension of the drainmaster is at the clear tube? I am thinking if I buy one that would be the point to attempt a modification.

I don't know the diameter off the top of my head but will measure when I get a chance. It has a high-density foam donut for a press fit into the drain.
