The Looong Hose

I have a few places in our town that I have dumped at after returning from trips. Well, they have been abused over time and one of them is closed and another has no hose for rinsing. I have the ability to dump at home but I will not drive my coach on our driveway after some issues I had in the past. So, I created the longest slinky I have ever seen, 75 feet, and it works great. It is a good 4 foot drop from the street to cleanout and the hose has quick connects for easy hookups. Sure makes things nice now to come home and dump, should have done this long ago.

I can see how the coach would have messed up those nice pavers. Even though it's a long run at least you have good access to your clean out.

My buddy bought a macerator pump system for his rig. It uses a much smaller diameter hose and he claims he can pump uphill with it. He loves his system.

Regards,

John

Since 2008 been using a 12VDC Flojet portable macerator pump with 3/4" garden hose ......easily pumps 75' with 2' rise
Some report longer distances

Then connect another garden hose to macerator and hose bibb...turn it on after pumping and rinse pump and discharge hose clean

No milking a hose/no drips/no mess

I had a FloJet macerator and used 1 inch flat roll hose from Harbor Freight.

I went as far as 3 lengths ( 75 feet total )

Best part was how little space the 3 hoses took up, when rolled up.

FloJet will work well for this, but looks like you have it fixed up already.

I have considered the macerator but with this I only spent a few bucks on hoses and I still get the mighty swoosh when I yank the tank levers. If I did not have the nice downhill drop then this would not be so functional and the pump would be a for sure necessity.

I wouldn’t risk driving an RV on that driveway. It’s beautiful. Heck of a poop run!

Yes, this right here^^^
I know someone who runs one nearly 100', thru a bathroom window directly into his S&B toilet. Impressive to say the least.

It rolls down hill so they say.

I think I would tap a sink drain tap pipe through wall before through a window. Not like house has black and gray tank. Any poop port in a ____storm.lol
I have my camping club 6 mi. away with dump. Not the lake either. My current camp sight about 1/2 acre lakefront to myself 4 beverages in its 75f finally not raining in Midwest I hope rest USA needs get their share we need a break from it.

Where did you source the long lengths of sewer hose with standard couplers? I could use a single 20’ length ( in addition to my 20’ of onboard hose) to do the same at my house.

Make no mistake, that could get very messy.

I could imagine the dog grabbing hose and pulling it into hallway. Like one grabbing fireworks fountain and it manages to shoot Roman candle balls right at every spectator that's running for their lives. There is some good stuff on FB.

I got two 20 foot lengths at Walmart and use the simple threaded coupler for those. I also use my Rhino hose to join up with those as well as a couple other types of hoses that I had which totals the 75 feet of hose. The hoses from Walmart are not heavy duty but I do not use this set up very often and when I do I am careful not to drag hoses.
