Similar subject, but slightly off....I'm looking into setting up my trailer at home for use by overnight guests and more pending...my son who will be returning home from college to live (indefinately) upon graduation in May. I have the electric and water hook up figured out but am looking for advice on the sewer end. No pun intended. we have a septic tank and it currently has a circular cement cover. I was wondering if anyone can suggest how/where I might gat my hands on a cover that has the sewer hook up for the hose from the trailer so I can just set it up to dump directly into the septic? Have any of you encountered this and if so how did you solve it? any adice would be GREATLY appreciated!

Bob, I got the sewer solution but I have not tried it yet. I will try it at the get together. After reading these posts I hope it is compatible. Otherwise I guess I will be using my old leaky big hose. I thought you din't have any plumbing?

Sounds like you have the solution all figured out youself. Cast a new cover - they are just concrete - with 4" PVC pipe through the new one and hook the sewer hose from the camper to it like you would at the campground. When done with that setup put a cap over it without glue or glue on a screw cap and just screw on a sewer cap. You may need to think of sewer gasses venting back into the camper for the long haul but if you shut the valves on the camper that should not be an issue. You have vents on the trailer now and that should take care of it anyway.

Since you are on septic, make sure you don't use any harsh chemical tank additives in the Airstream (such as formaldahyde-based black tank additives like Thetford) . It will destroy the biotic balance in your septic tank.

If you use a holding tank treatment make sure it's septic compatible

clancy boy...

i was in a local rv shop last week...

very old school place...

they had a wall of thetford fittings...

bits from the tank opening,

all the way out to the hose,

and adapters galore...

if you need something, they've got it...

we can talk at the rally.

cheers
