Hi: Jim Bennett...Here's a couple pic's. of the parts I used. Nice thing is the dreaded black two pronger won't slide down the tube. The end cap, when screwed on, holds it in the neck of the fitting. On the road trials will be this weekend. Alf

Re: Sewer hose container

Alf - what size/schedule pipe is that? I like that a "normal" slinky connector fits into the threaded end but not past it.

Re: Sewer hose container

That is going to prove very useful. I have a length of string trimmer line under the clamp that holds the "2 pronger". That way if it creeps to the end of the tube, I can still grab it and pull it out.

Re: Sewer hose container

I know some say that hooked pull rod we get is for the awning. I can reach the awing. It gets used to pull out the slinky.

I just bought a black manufactured holder. I plan to mount it under, and get rid of the one on the bumper.

Hi: Eric T... Standard 4" PVC Sewer pipe. I found a second style female adapter SDR35 BDS... TSC Stores stock# 312404 that fits over the outside dia. of the pipe. It has a ridge about 1" into the fitting that the Valtera 2 pronger won't pass thru and the origional screw on cap fits over the prongs to hold it secure. The old pipe required a sleeve over the pipe to fit the adapter in, but the one I bought doesn't. Alf p.s. The pic of the parts shows the black 2 pronger inside the female end fitting.

Hi: Jim Bennett... The parts were $37.00 inc Tx. and I have enough pipe to make several more. The weekend was priceless!!! Alf

Re: Sewer hose container

Hi: All... I can now say that the new 4" sewer pipe hose container that I made works just as good as the original. The fact that the slinky can't slide in past the female end fitting is really a bonus. Alf

Re: Sewer hose container

We just got back home from picking up our 17b (The Lark) in Chilliwack. We had a great couple of weeks meandering back home from the West Coast. But one of the tabs broke off the sewer hose connection. I was all set to buy a new hose, new container, or make serious modifications, but when we stopped at Camping World, I saw some Blueline Products that look like they can do away with the need for the tabs on the hose. I got one 90 degree elbow that will attach to the trailer sewer out. It has four tabs, so should be sturdy, and is clear so that I can see what is going on. And one "connector" that can be clamped to the hose. It just slides over the smooth connector on the elbow. Here's the relevant links on Camping World's web site:

"Quick Connector"
http://www.campingworld.com/shopping...connector/6834

90 degree elbow (to be carried separately from hose)
http://www.campingworld.com/shopping...-adapter/27855

It seemed easier than getting a new hose and container, and if it doesn't work, I am only out about $14.00.

Does anyone have any experience with Blueline products?

Thanks much. Pictures of The Lark to come as soon as I get it cleaned up.
