sewage dump hose
On our recently purchased 1978 24ft Argosy the pipe that the dump hose fits on is a different size (larger) than on previous sobs :eek:
Is there an adaptor that will fit what seems to be the standard hose and connect to the existing dump pipe on the Argosy,if so where might i find one?

New trailers use Valterra fittings. The older ones used Thetford - slightly larger. Vintage Trailer Supply may have Valterra/Thetford adaptors. All the modern hoses you buy have the Valterra type fittings. Just put the adaptor on the outlet valve of the trailer.

Yep, as Paula said:
Valterra T05-2285VP Thetford to Valterra Universal Adapter

I carry an extra just in case.

On our last trip I lost the OEM dumper bad, not secured properly. :sad:

This ended up being the 2hr Camping World on the road fix.
After insisting that the covers they had would fit, they didn't, we tried them all. I showed them that the spare end of a dump extension hose I had did fit. (the adaptor that FA mentioned, the white part in the photo) The the blue cap they had in stock fit tightly over that, I used Marine-Tex to bond them together.

Look for a hose adaptor that has just two "hooks" as opposed to the AS's four, that is the only style that will fit ours.

Hope this helps, :wally:
