Thank you Brian. I will be googling the sewer solution system. I like the "cleaner" look.

Hi Dave,

There are several threads here on Airforums that discuss the Sewer Solution in depth.

I have not used the Sewer Solution, so I cannot say how well it works, or does not work. From what I read it works well.

The problem I have with it is storage. My trailer is equipped with a vented storage area outside of the trailer for a soiled slinky (and can you ever get them to the unsoiled condition once used?), but I have no area either inside or outside suitable for a soiled Sewer Solution to be stored.

So where and how do you store it so odors are not offensive?

I store mine in the bumper compartment or whatever it is called.

Never a good idea to cross connect potable and sewer systems.

I have now used the Sewer Solution for nine years (1,500+ nights of camping) on three different Airstreams. It has worked for me without any problems. When I still used a slinky hose, I had a number of connection seepage problems and experienced pin holes in the slinky. Also, once used a slinky is never clean again.

A Sewer Solution hose is much cleaner as it has a smooth interior and can be thoroughly rinsed with fresh water. I have always stored my Sewer Solution hoses (I carry 4 of them) in an outside storage compartment without any residual odor problems.

I know that there are some who don't trust the Sewer Solution's back-flow protector valve. I feel that it as reliable as any slinky connector. I always monitor my black tank dumps. This is a good practice whether using a Sewer Solution or a slinky.

I still carry a section of slinky in Lucy's belly tube. I use this for a quick gray water dump at a campground community dump. I never use it for the black tank.

To 'clean' the slinky.. .well, not easily done..

With ' long sleeve gloves'...and wearing 'old' clothes
- I have an old rectagonal plastic ice chest.. holds about 5 gallons or so.
- I fill the container with water 2/3-3/4 full, add copious amounts of Clorox.. at least a cup to the water
- submerge one end of the slinky, pushing as much as you can under water and allow it to 'set' for a minute or so.
- now, lift the submerged end, slowly facing the opening up, allowing water to stay in the slinky
- lift the slinky where it enters the bucket and you should have a 'U' shape... CAREFULLY and slowly, slosh the slinky back and forth.. kind of the reverse you did when you destroyed your Slinky toy as a kid
- put the first end of the slinky back into the container so you contain the water. AS you move the slinky trough the container, pull the excess on the outside of the container.. just leave the 'end' where you started, inside the bucket
- Move the slinky out as you feed more into the bucket... keep sloshing...
- Continue moving the slinky in and out of the water/clorox solution until you reach the end of the slinky.
- carefully lift from the center of the slinky, allowing water to drain into the container
- lift both ends of the slinky above the rest of the hose and place it into the 'storage' under the AS stern.
- pour your 'container' of 'stuff' down one of your toilets... don't splash!
