sewer hose doesn't fit thru outlet

We just picked up our (new to us) used sunseeker. Since there was no sewer hose, the dealer grabbed a new one from parts and we tried it out. The RV attachment end of the hose will not fit thru the round opening on the bottom of the housing.if we take the elbow off the other end (that goes into the drain pipe in ground).. We can get it down thru the opening, but that is awkward to maneuver when rinsing and coiling it back up. Anyone else have this problem? Do we just need a different hose? Other suggestions?

you need to have a hose with no ends attached. slip the hose thru the housing than attach the ends. had the same thing on my Ridgeview.

I took a Dremel tool to the ends of the hose and shaved some off of the ears on the hose connector. The end with the elbow will fit (without the cap on the end of it) . I'm still looking for a better solution. It's too bad the hose manufacturers and RV manufacturers can't get together on stuff like this.

Is it possible to increase the size of the hole with a Dremel?

No, because it is a threaded plastic collar with a cover

Happened to find a sewer hose connector under the sink inside. I think it is smaller to fit thru... Can I purchase a bare hose and attach this to it?

If you're just dumping, run it through the door, don't even bother running it through the bottom. If you're parked for a while, then you should only be squeezing it through there once and most of those ends come off. There are about a zillion hoses out there right now, hard to plan for them all...but I'll certainly request a larger hole.

Ditto. Use a Dremel and shave the tabs off.

My 15' Rhino hose wouldn't fit through that opening or even stow in the bumper. I cut the tabs off and now it passes through the compartment opening easily.

I found a short 2 foot hose at camping world. I leave it attached and it fits thru the bin then at campsite I open the small cap fit the small short 2footer thru and attach my clear 45 angle and the hoses. Also for storage of the sewer hoses. I put a 5x5 PVC fence post on the bumper and store the long hoses there. No need to cut off the tabs
