While you're out shopping...

get a foam knee pad - check the garden section. You may have to kneel on damp surfaces at dump stations.

Janet's right about the foam pad. We have a skinny, long one for kneeling, and a square one for sitting that's a little easier to kneel on. Useful not only when hooking up the sewer, but when down working in the electrical compartment, hooking up the phone or cable, hooking up the city water connection, and when down tightening the lug nuts or airing up the tires. Sure saves the pants knees!

I also tried the knee pads you strap on, but the pad is just quicker to use.

I use the sewer solution ( ) for hookup camping, and the slinky for dumping after dry camping. I take one or the other, rarely both. The sewer solution stores easily in teh back bumper compartment, I keep it in a trash bag, away from the power cable etc.
I like the sewer solution because you don't need hose suports, and it's very easy to store. I bought an extension hose for it, and it even works up hill, when dumping the black tank.
I do believe that every once in a while, a good flush with the large diameter hose is important. The tank flushes faster, with less chance for deposits.
I had my sewer solition over a year now,and it seems to be a good quality product, just like they promised.
