I tried a Sewer Solution and found that with my two dump pulls being located so close to the outlet, that I was not able to position the Sewer Solution cap in such a way as to allow for hookup of the water input valve? What did I miss??? We have a 2011 Flying cloud 30'

Thanks, Jack

Good point, Brian. I might get myself a backup hose to cover the pinhole issue and to have if I ever need that extension. A coupler will be on the shopping list, too.

Not strictly on topic but it's a good point; at Inverhuron Provincial Park, some of the electric cable runs were listed as being over 100 feet! No wonder some of the sites weren't booked. Perhaps I will be looking at a second 50' cord

Thanks, Jack
Try a right angle M/F bayonet elbow. This will put the SS horizontal just below the outlet. That will give you a better position to hook up the input hose.

Jack - did you know that the 'lever' in the SS can be assembled in the opposite position - swapping ends, as it were - if that would give you the room to operate it...

However, you should send it back to SS and let them do the modification...I did it myself, and it doesn't exactly line up properly and I had to do some filing inside to make it work right - a slight 'slip' with the drill could have messed up the main housing!

The instructions I got with my SS a few years ago mentioned that the user could do the modification...I called SS when the parts didn't line up properly when I reassembled it from the other end, and they said it wasn't field changeable currently and they would do it free, with the correct parts - I was leaving on a trip and so did it myself, but wouldn't again...

The SS is our ONLY solution when we have hook-ups...when boon docking, we still use the stinky slinky for those later quick dump station visits, etc...

Happy drains out there...

Is the SS better than a 12v Macerator Pump?

I was a sewer solutions skeptic...that is until I tried one. Will never go back to the stinky slinky. We do keep one stored in the bumper as a backup.

We bought the Sewer solution and it is very nice. It is slower than the slinky but really does a much better job I think. (You can actually force water back into the Black Water tank on ours) We do hang onto a slinky as backup, don't want to create a line at a dump station while we wait on the SS to work.
Jack 46. Our connection is in the back next to the bumper and I also could not get the hose inlet to fit. Bought a 6" clear extension for the dump connector and all is good.

Thanks, not enough clearance in any of the 90 degree positions, but an extension would surely work. Thanks for the tip. Jack

Chuck/Skye, Where did you find the 6" clear extension? Does not seem to be available from Sewer Solution. Thanks. Jack

At the risk of being on the bottom of the dog pile, I have to add another comment about a picture above. Mixing potable water and sewer connections is really a recipe for disaster. Fresh water filters and potable water hoses don't mix with the connections to the black and grey water tanks and the sewer. I believe the picture above is a case study in bad camp sanitation.

I agree with JBin KC. Unless a back flow preventer is used this is a possible disater in the making.

I have a 6" clear extension that I use to provide sufficient clearance.
