sewer hose?

Question?
Does the 19 Escape come with a sewer hose?
If so what length, is it clear so you can watch for flow?
Where does it stow, the rear bumper looked to small?
Thanks Geo

Re: sewer hose?

Hi: Geo... The "Stinky Slinky" stowes in its own white ABS tube above or below the bumper. It's not clear but you didn't want to see in it anyway... Some have complained the tube is to short and small for the fancy Slinkeys. Valtera makes an angled connector that's clear...but then where do you store that Alf

Here is a picture of the rear of our Escape 13 with the white plastic storage tube.

Re: sewer hose?

Thanks for the photo.
I see the tube, how long is your sewer hose??
Question; is it like a slinky where it collapses when you store it.
And then exspandes when you pull it out.
On my old trailer it was 8 feet long, stored in the rear bumper.
In your photo the tube does not look that long.
Thanks Geo

Re: sewer hose?

We don't actually have a sewer hose at all. I use it for storing the drain hose from our sink.

Perhaps someone with a sewer hose can enlighten you about how they work.

Re: sewer hose?


The hose is long enough, is all I know. I've never had a problem reaching the sani-dump and if I did, I'd move the trailer closer to it. Even so, I'm sure you could fit a hose at least 1/3 longer than the one supplied, into the storage tube.
I haven't found any see-through connector that will fit into the ABS storage tube, but you don't need one. You can hear the liquid draining and when it stops, you just lift the hose enough to empty any liquid still in the hose.

You aren't supposed to hook up to the sewer when you arrive at camp leave your valves open for the duration of your stay. That will cause you problems with debris drying inside the tanks and sticking. It's best to empty the tanks only when they are close to full.

Re: sewer hose?

I found the hose supplied with Hokie to fit into the holder just fine. It was a little thin and developed a hole the first time out. The heavier replacement with attachments on both ends, will not fit into the PVC holder on the trailer, so the reason some use it to hold fishing rods and things.
Do a search on the forum with the words "stinky slinky", or sewer hose, and it'll pull up lots of stuff on the subject to help you out. (Search on the upper right of the home page)

Re: sewer hose?

On our 19' Escape, I replaced the supplied hose holder. This was due to the RhinoFlex hose that replaces the OME hose. The RhinoFlex is a bit longer. The new holder is 52" (132 cm) long. HokieEscape take note: one end of the RhinoFlex would not go inside the holder, so I sanded down the connector raised ribs flushed and also removed the inner lip on the female pipe adapter.

Re: sewer hose?

I saw a fiberglass trailer last night when fishing that had two 7 foot tubes on the rear.
The larger one on the bottom was for sewer, the small diameter one on top was for fishing rods.
I did not have a camera, darn.
Lots of good ideas, people
Thanks Geo

I modified my 17 footer with a cheap alternative as shown here. http://www.fiberglassrv.com/board/in...&hl=sewer+hose
