Bought the wrong hose

I just went to the RV store and got a replacement waste hose for my black water drain and came to find out that it is not the same hook up that I have on the A/S. Which kind should I get that will fit?

Probably your Airstream uses the Thetford style sewer connection. Today most RVs use the more common Valterra style. The size is slightly different. There is an adapter available at some RV stores.

Airstreams use Thetforn fittings. They are almost the same size. I think that Al's RV at 56 Ave and Bell has them.

Jerry,

I assume that the new connector won't fit the Airstream fitting, correct? If so, you purchased a Valterra connector and you need a Thetford connector. Camping World has the Thetford.

The rally is right next door to Camping World. If you can't find one in town, they should have one also.

We are going fishing at a lake just South of Williams this weekend with my fly fishing club.

This will be the first true voyage of the "Tavelstar Galactica" (thanks to Overlander63 for the name). New axles, tires, propane regulator,(no leaks) prodigy brake controller and a borrowed Honda 3000. Jump coordinates are set and ready to engage.

It's close enough, you can use sublight engines...If you use the jump gate, remember to use the hyperdrive while in slipstream before going to warp...
Is that enough sci-fi FTL metaphors for one trip?

Just don’t forget to check the Heisenberg Compensators before using the transporter.

And all this came out of a sewer drain?
