That is Valterra, does he need that or Thetford? There is a difference.

waste cover with hose fitting

my AS is a 1993 Excella - so does that mean I have a Thetford connection? if so will the RV stores carry that?

OK, you probably have the Thetford valve unless it's been changed.

Here's a chart with pictures.

http://service.airstream.com/files/l...74d09cd878.pdf

Take a look at the photos and see what you have.

Thetford caps with hose fittings are available:

Thetford Garden Hose Adapter

In general they're a specialty item not available in stores. Thetford valves have fallen into disuse despite being technically superior (classic VHS and Betamax story).

Thetford's fittings are WHITE, Valterra's are BLACK.

Good Info!

Thanks Jammer. I wish that this info would have been here 2 weeks ago. I purchased a new waste disposal hose that a rep from Thetford told me would fit the system on my Argosy. It didn't. So I purchased an adaptor that claimed to fit "most" systems. Not this particular system. I was able to modify the adaptor to work on my system, because I have machine tools.
Now don't get me wrong, I'm not blaming anyone at Thetford. It's just the fact that in 36 years there have been modifcations and upgrades. I should have been able to describe the part I needed in better detail and the photo's you posted would have done that for me. Thanks again.

Jammer, You seem to know where to buy all the good stuff. If I ever need anything, I'm gonna ask you first.

Thanks. All those hours wasted searching the web, I guess.
