How To Set Up a New Sewer Hose – The Easy Way!

Okay, we get it… starting a new sewer hose isn’t rocket science. But sometimes it’s the little things that make RVing easier. Here’s a simple little trick that keeps us from struggling to get a new hose connected to the hard plastic fittings on our RV’s sewer system.

Hi! Thanks for this idea. Trying to find that threaded clear elbow you show in the video. The link provided shows me a Camco 39432, which from the picture does not seem to have a threaded end. Is the amazon photo correct?

Hi John! The reason we linked to the Camco 39432 clear elbow is because the elbow we have (which is actually this Valterra model) doesn't work well with our favorite Camco heavy-duty sewer hose. Camco & Valterra (probably intentionally) have their threads in the opposite direction. So if you want to use that Valterra elbow... make sure you get a Valterra sewer hose to go with it. Otherwise, you'll have the same problem we do, which is that the hose and the elbow have threading in opposite directions. ?

Do you or have you thought of any quick way to put up screen rooms or other awning room structures in a easier or faster fashion for newbies and others that might consider using these? Any and all help might make a great informative video!

Sorry Gregory, but we've never owned or used any type of screen room before. The best thing we can suggest is to post your question on the iRV2 forums. There are tons of RVers there with experience in all areas of RVing, eager to share their knowledge. It's free to sign up and post at http://irv2.com/forums. Sorry we couldn't be of more help on this one, but hopefully this will lead you to some people with great ideas on the topic.

Thanks guys. That's my new configuration. I think that chute is neat and I've always wanted to be able to use it.

We've never used that little door and chute on our Ventana because of the terminal fittings. Do you reconnect the sewer-end connector (EZ Coupler) each time you attach to a sewer line and simply leave the clear hose connector (Clear EZ 45 degree elbow) attached and inserted into the Newmar chute? or do you have a connector on the sewer connection end to which you attach the terminal sewer connector. I've been using the pre-assembled hoses. Perhaps I should assemble my own hose assembly. Could you send a picture of what you put into the chute?

Hey Bruce. We leave the sewer end of the hose "naked" with nothing on it at all, and attach it to this coupler each time we hook up: http://amzn.to/2EmZats

Takes only a few seconds and works like a charm for us. That allows us to slide the sewer end into the chute, with just enough room at the top for the door to close behind the clear elbow. We've been doing that way for 10 years and are very satisfied with it, but we know that any desire to use a pre-fab hose with any type of fitting already connected at the sewer end would prevent us from using the chute. Luckily, we've never used anything but a plain 20-foot hose (this one: http://amzn.to/2nPDZpF) and never had a reason to switch.
