I just don't see the point of hooking up the sewer hose if it's not needed. Just seems like extra work and a potential tripping hazard.


I love good showers when I can get them and TC gray water tanks don't last longer than for 2 of them.
Again, with Sewer Solution it is 1 minute hookup and relatively clean job.

I had a case where someone bumped the faucet in the bathroom of the 990. We discovered it when we saw the water running out of the web bath, under the door and onto the floor. Luckily we were in AC season so we could get it to dry. The gray tanks was closed.

Do you find it more convenient to hook up to sewer when you get there so there are no issues of full tanks later? Both grey and black? Or do you wait and see if you need to.
Last thing on my mind when setting up is to connect the sewer. It can wait a few days. OK if 4 people need showers twice a day in the RV I would be connecting when the first hops in.

I take it that if you are not staying hooked up, something like this is essentially useless.

Some of you make hooking up the sewer hose sound like it takes forever or its extremely difficult to do.

If you know you're going to use it why not just hook it up when you're setting everything else and be done with it??

Last time I had full hook ups it for three nights, showered every day and did the dishes. The only thing I hooked up to was the electricity.

I just dump and clean the tanks after I get back home.

I have been at campgrounds where I might not hook up for days but when I do the supports are essential to getting the hose to dump without me having to constantly lift it to empty it.

if I have full hookups in my camper or my 5th wheel I hook everything up when I get there. if I have been camping for a bit with out hookups when I get there I will dump and flush the blackwater tank and leave the grey water open. then I will flush the black again the morning I leave as it saves having to wait in line at the dump. it only takes about 3 minuits to hook it up so I get it all set up then sit down and relax for the rest of the stay.
