challenge one: the black hose storage compartment doesn't accept the Rhino sewer hose ( probably will also not fit in 4" diameter plastic pipe. Someone mentioned the 5" hollow white plastic fence post might be an answer.
challenge two: the shore power connection does not enter a convenient place insde RV that will accept the Progressive Dynamics elrctrical management system (surge and over/under voltage protection) device.
third: the sewer drain fitting exits the RV through a large plastic closeable fitting.
i'm sure that we can solve these given the talented folks o this Blog.
Anyone come accross these? Have any ideas?
I have a 2014 24R and stow my black tank hose in the valve compartment. I just stuff it above and below the valves.
I use the portable surge protector and connect it to the power post.
I remove the large plastic cover in the bottom of the sewer compartment and route the hose up through it and connect to the valve. I see that the fittings on the Rhino hose are larger than mine. Can you not route it straight out the compartment and just not latch the door. I know that there are not any 90 elbows that will fit to the valve that I could find.
