Remember that the hose is attached FIRST before the end of line valve is opened.

That way no poo at all regardless.

If the end of line valve AND the tank valve leak, you will see it on the ground before you stand near it. (Not very likely at all).

Order of things:

1. Remove end cap on end of line valve (you have one right).
2. Should be no liquid here since any would have drained off when you last dumped.
4. Open end of line valve. (any surprises can be heard running into sewer hose)
5. Dump black tank (if required) and close valve
6. Dump gray tank(s) and close valve
7. Close end of line valve AFTER plumbing drains (A clear elbow really helps here)
8. replace end cap.

No poo ever.

Good check list herk7769. I would add 1 step. BEFORE REMOVING THE CAP VERIFY ALL DUMP VALVES ARE CLOSED. I had a case where someone pulled my black and gray dump valves. I was lucky I noticed them before I removed the cap. I closed them and used a bucket to catch what was in the lines. Could have been a disaster. I like the idea of the end valve, going to look into that.
