Russell,

A few things come to mind:

  • Much easier to use that a normal stinky slinky; pull the house out of the manifold box and put it in the dump outlet. Dump Black, Dump Gray, put hos back. Done.
  • It is helpful in that it is not a gravity-fed system; rather it is a pump so you do not need to hassle with a stinky slinky stand.
  • It can dump your tank uphill.
  • It will empty your tank in @ 2 min
  • The sewage hose is half the size (and weight!) of a normal stinky slinky.
  • It is permanently (with clamps) attached to your sewer dump outlet - no more connecting and disconnecting!
  • The Hose is storable between dumps (aesthetic to some)
  • Decidedly more sanitary thank a normal sewage connection.
  • Plus you get to join the cool kids sewer gadget club

Doing some online shopping I found a few more XLT's out there. Here are a few other color options I found.

Not bad.

Well that red one just a bit over the top. The others look good to me. Fixed income holding me back !'

For the "toilet paper" discussion portion of this thread: we use the POM brand from SAM's Club. The outer box says it is safe for Marine and RV use. We haven't had any problems with it.

And the advantage that I really want is the ability to dump at home. With a 50' extension hose, I can pump the poop to my inside toilet. This allows me to not have to empty my tanks before we leave for home on our last day of the trip and then we can still use the facilities on our way home.

Macerator toilet is usually used in a RB configuration because of the length of plumbing from toilet to the black tank. Solids won't get stuck in the pipes enroute to the holding tank.

That's all I've got, buddy. If I need corrected, please feel free to chime in, anyone.

Hi Rich,
I may be wrong here, but I can't see a bunch of happy wives when you guys announce "I am just going run this 50 ft extension hose through the house to the inside toilet to dump the MH tanks".
Closely followed by the words "here honey, hold this hose while I run out to the MH to pull the black tank handle"
You guys better have really understanding wives or really comfortable couches!!!!
On behalf of the wives out there......... PLEASE don't look at the 50 ft hose plan as an asset!!!
Thanks and you guys please stay away from my husband! I don't want y'all giving him any ideas!

Karen

Hi Campin Cajun,
Do you think the reason you like the color scheme of the coach in the last pic so much is because those happen to be the New Orleans Saint's colors? Just an observation................
