Anybody removed their sewer boom? I thought it would be great, but everytime I go to reconnect at next stop the hose is full of, well everything, and stinks very bad. I have read this is a problem that all booms have no matter on which model or manufactured camper. I want to remove mine a then configure a way to store the hose in a PVC pipe. Not sure how to mount the PVC to my 5ver. The Montana 3455SA has no storage for the hose since you were suppose to use the Lippert boom. Any ideas and pictures appreciated!

What is a "sewer boom"?

I keep all my sewer hose and fittings in a tote in my storage area. It has a tight fitting lid that latches down. Holds about 30 feet of hose, several fittings and a Flush King. I'm ready for anything..

What if you just plugged the end of the hose when it's stored? Maybe that would keep the stinkies from escaping?

You may have read that all "booms" have problems. Not mine!
On our Excel, it is called a Pivot-EZ Sewer Hose Comp. w/20' Hose.
If your hose has any fluid in it, it is because your dump valve is leaking. The blade is not fully closing or you may have a faulty seal.
Even if you remove yours, when you take the cap off the sewer outlet you will still have fluid....you must fix the problem valve.
May be as simple as FILLING your tank and then flushing 2 or 3 times.
The force of the flushing water may clean out any debris or paper jammed in the slot the blade fits into. Try that first, it is FREE and EASY.

When I had a 2010 Montana with a Sewer Boom I would leave the Sewer Hose hooked up all the time and trust that the Valves would stop the flow of anything. Then I would just pull the hose out the end of the boom. Now that I have a 2013 Landmark Full Body Paint with a Tube mounted on the side of the frame it seems to work just as well for storage of the Slinky.

I have a "boom" on my Montana-I use a 10 Rino hose that stores just right in the boom.The Rino hose has a cap on the end.I do not have a problem of leakage,valves close as intended.You have a valve problem that removing the boom will not fix.

Had a Lippert sewer boom on my 2011 Escalade. It was the first thing I removed and tossed in the garbage. What a dumb idea, I keep all sewer stuff in a tight fitting bin in the basement....works for me. It was easy to remove....one cotter pin and it was gone...I also unbolted a few misc pieces that secured a strap.
