I found a new Sewer Solution sewer adapter that is quite a bit different than the rubber original that came with the Sewer Solution. Many times the larger ring is too big for the campground sewer outlet and the small one doesn't seal well. This new adapter is stepped and will handle four different size sewer pipes.

I have never understood why there are so many different size sewer outlets at various campgrounds.

Here is a picture of the new adapter.

So, Brian, where did you find it?

Do you find the 10' length for the Sewer Solution long enough or do you also carry an extension.

I was not aware of that. The Sewer Solutions used to come with a soft rubber sewer adapter that only accommodated two different size sewer dumps. Peeling off the outer rubber grommet to expose the smaller one is sometimes difficult, especially in colder temperatures.

I haven't had a chance to try it out yet, but I think that this new adapter is going to be more versatile and easier to use.

I found it on Amazon while doing a search to see what the price for a new Sewer Solution was. This adapter was $19.64 on Amazon Prime.

It has been our experience that the ten foot hose connected to the Sewer Solution unit handles the job about 80% of the time. When I do need a longer sewer hose, one additional ten foot length almost always does the trick.

Being an overly-prepared kind of guy, I carry two additional ten foot lengths of Sewer Solution hose. This gives me a total of 40 feet of sewer reach. I use this extra length primarily at home home to reach my sewer clean-out.

I did use this extra length last summer in Katy, Texas when our site reservation got messed up and the only site that was left was a front-in moho site. We were able to use this site thanks to our extra Sewer Solution hose, 30' extension cord for our 30 amp connection, and an additional 25' fresh water hose. This stay actually turned out well for us as the campground gave us our three night stay without charge as they had messed up our reservation.

I wish I could find my house sewer clean out. I think the Sewer Solution would be great to have to flush out my waste tanks at home with the AS parked in the front driveway. I guess I'll have to get in the crawl space to see where the sewer comes into the house but crawl spaces creep me out.

You may be able to see the main sewer drain line heading into the ground by looking into the crawl space with a flash light. Once you have determined which way the line is headed, start digging around outside the the house line and find the line. The clean-out is most often within a few feet on the house. If you can find the sewer line and there no clean-out installed, you should have a plumber out to install one. You need to do this not only to be able to dump your Airstream at home, but to be able to correct plumbing problems at the house. Most local building codes require and accessible sewer clean-out, but sometimes builders have been known to cut corners and not install one. This is especially true where building inspections are known to be lax.

This is the type of sewer connector that used to come with the Sewer Solution kits.

"Enhanced" water leaking out of hose ends in the back of your truck does not have to be a problem. The slinky we use (called Revolution and bought at Walmart about 5 years ago) has water tights end caps and they really don't leak. For a garden hose style, there are plastic caps that can fit on the end. They are sold in RV stores and though I bought some for the fresh water hoses to keep water from coming out of them, I never have actually used them. I'll get around to it. I'm sure threaded caps can be found in plumbing or garden stores that will fit—basically I just screw the 2 ends together, but for Sewer Solution, I have no idea if you can screw it together.

We keep hoses in two separate plastic containers. After a couple of seasons they crack (especially when I throw them on the ground) and duct tape will keep them going. I never find any water, enhanced or not, in the bottom of the sewer box.

Our extra Sewer Solution hoses are stored with their ends interlocked with each other, so leaking is not an issue. We also interlock ends of our water hoses. we use quick connects, so this is easy to do. Admittedly, the main Sewer Solution hose is stored uncapped, but it has never created a problem.

We are considering the purchase of a 25FB Twin and have found this thread very helpful. A question: Is the 25FB prone to dragging its tail when pulling into sloped driveways? We had a 31' Brand X trailer many years ago and this was often a problem when pulling into gas stations and certain sloped driveways. I am hoping the shorter length of the 25FB makes this less of an issue. What has been your experiences? Thanks!

Tail dragging has never been a problem for us in our extensive travel.

Welcome to the Forums. We're glad to have you with us.
