Darn! That would be easier than what I did! I still might use your idea. I already have a 3/4 pipe thread on the end of my pvc rig. Thanks.

After reading all of this I am glad that my clean out is is reachable with the SS flexible hose. When we built our house a couple years ago an Airstream was not on our mind, much less the secondary use for the clean out. I guess we just got lucky that the builder placed it by the driveway.

From looking at the photos online it seems like you could just cut one foot off of the end of the discharge hose, turn it around and connect it back onto itself, and proceed fitting the newly available bare hose end.
I like this thread as now I have an option to digging a sewer trench when we move to our new base where full timing will be the norm.

Like remphoto, we just ended up with the fortuitous situation of our plumber placing a clean out next to the driveway as well as up near the house when we had to replace the house's sewer line due to tree roots breaking it. I don't use a SS, so I just dump the blackwater tank via slinky and then hook up the garden hose to the built-in tank sprayer and let run for 10 minutes or so. Easy Peasy!

Final chapter

The attached pic is what I rigged to get this done. It is a shame that the SS does not allow for commonly available fittings to just connect to 1" pvc. My setup should be waterproof and easy to connect to the SS hose.

I just opened the package on my new sewer solution and it has a schedule 40 1" 90 degree street fitting on the discharge side. I just glued a 1" coupler on a 10' schedule 40 pipe and slipped it on, no glue on the sewer solution side and it looks like it's made to fit. Is this something new they are doing or am I missing something?

Might be something new. If it works, sounds like you are good to go. How about a picture for us verbally impaired.

Mine did not come that way; might be that now that Valterra owns it they pack it that way. Mine has a bushing enlarged to handle 7/8 tubing, connected to the sewer fitting. No issue for me now but I am glad to see they improved the connectivity.

Our Sewer Solution is a number of years old and it has exactly the 90į fitting HiHo Silver mentions (also on the discharge side). Perhaps Valterra has returned to a former procedure?

I should mention, fitting the hose which comes with the Sewer Solution over something a bit larger than its ID is not difficult. Heat the end of the hose thoroughly with a heat gun (set to low temperature) and it will soften enough to fit over easily. Let it cool before disassembling and it will stay enlarged to match the slightly large item. Don't have a heat gun? Use a hair dryer.

Actually a cup of hot water is what I have always used.

I did buy hose clamps for the pressed on fittings on the SS. Not sure why it came without but better to be safe than sorry.

For the many years we have used our Sewer Solution, we have never had a problem with the hose over aluminum tube slip-fit joints (no hose clamps). As mentioned in a thread long ago (http://www.airforums.com/forums/f444...tml#post712081), we have set up our Sewer Solution for positive backwashing of the tanks. In that part of the system with significant water pressure in it, we have hose clamps in place, as the picture in that thread shows.

Been using the SS for four years, never had a hose even come close to sliding off. All components have a very tight fit.
