The standard Rhino-Flex sewer hose will fit into the standard rear hose storage bumper. Try it again and rotate the ends of the hoses and you will see that they will fit. It's kind of like this. Why are manhole covers round???? That's the only geometric shape that will not fall into the opening if it were turned around. A square will fit and fall into the open hole. Can you imagine if kids knew manhole covers would fall into the opening????? They would spend all night working on it.

Paulmlac, should be able to find the larger threaded plug/access hole piece at the boat or marine place as mentioned before. RV dealer may have one. Seen them used for plumbing access in rv showers too. I could have swore I've seen them at Academy before, or maybe something similar. Cut away. Easy fix.

At least in Heaven, RVs will be perfect, and I won't have to keep fixing them.

Rig is at a storage lot so can't look at it easily. Does anyone know how the base plate is attached to the floor of the storage trunk - does it glue down or get screwed in? Also, is the 4" base plate sufficient or is it smarter to get a 5" so have a little wiggle room? Thanks!

We use a Thetford Smartdrain with our Sunseeker, which has an enclosed tank drain compartment. The hose and fittings have lever lock connections. The hose fits in the bumper and goes through the compartment's floor opening just fine.

The lever lock connections allow you to connect the hose to the dump valve without having to twist the hose. My routine is to connect the dump elbow first, drop it into the dump station, then push the hose into the dump compartment. I flip the levers open and let the hose hang in the opening while removing the dump valve cap and putting the adapter on. The hose just plugs right onto Smartdrain adapter on the dump valve. We've used it for about 250 camping days in two years and it shows no wear. We usually don't stay in any place for more than two or three days, so it has been pulled out of the bumper, dragged across the concrete, and connected a lot of times.

It attaches with screws. I used the same screws for the new one and added some silicone sealant under the lip of it. I used a 5" deck plate and it is plenty big enough.
