Solution for recessed sewer connection problems!

Recently, I've encountered some sewer connections at campgrounds that have created a bit of a problem because the sewer connection is recessed far enough down that my standard L connection couldn't screw in or seal properly with a donut seal. I started looking for a fitting to solve the problem and I believe this Camco item will solve the problem:

https://www.walmart.com/ip/Camco-393...ndle/857474883

I actually purchased it from Amazon, but they seem in short supply and aren't currently showing on Amazon. I received it in the mail yesterday and think it will solve the problem with recessed connections.

Great idea. I've frequently encountered that situation and just had to rely on my weight belt (from younger SCUBA days), but this flexible connection seems like the right solution.

I've never run into this situation myself but why not just go to a big box hardware store, purchase the needed threaded fittings and make an extension as long as needed?

I made up 3 and 4 inch diameter extensions in male and female configurations that I carry for situations like this. I have found 2 or 3 places where the park fittings were male threaded for some reason.

I have a fitting like that, but it wasn't long enough for the recessed hookup I had at Mount Gilead State Park, OH. That's why I started searching for a solution. But, thanks for posting!

We're headed out Sunday, but we're just going to one campground. I will try out the fitting even if it isn't needed, but I should be able to evaluate whether it would work in the situations where I've needed it.

Great idea and solves a situation we have found in the past. I carry a couple of flat rocks to put on the connection when needed. AMazon does not show it any more and Wal Mart has it listed as "out of stock"

I will keep lookin for it.

Could have used this at the last place I was hooked up.

The sewer connection was at an odd angle coming out of the ground which made a slight P-trap.

A quick Google search turned up lots of results:

Far more common in my experience is the campground plumbers who think fluids flow uphill.
Nice fix for the recessed connection, though. Haven't run into that one yet.-Paul

I always intentionally form my sewer hose to make a P trap. That keeps all the CG sewer stink from venting thru my holding tank roof vents.
