So... maybe I *am* doing something wrong. What I've been doing is mashing the one end of the sewer donut *into* the sewer pipe and then my elbow into the middle of that.

It sounds like you might be saying do it around the outside of the sewer pipe and elbow where the 2 come together...

Now I can see it coming - a new thread about people putting this thing on over the elbow and the sewer pipe with their bare hands

No no, you're doing it right. I'm not good at descriptions. There are some sewer pipes that are too narrow for the sewer donut and only the elbow without the donut will fit the opening.

JohnF, I don't blame you for never coming back. You asked a simple legitimate question and you get this. Maybe I am being over critical but this thread has been hi jinxed. I hope you got the info you needed and have a great time camping. The sewer duty is only intimidating the first couple of times. Just take your time and ask a fellow camper if you have any questions, they will be glad to help. Now as everyone says when they have had enuf, I am out of here.

The rubber donut doesn't help at the dump station when the guy just before you dumped his portable tank all over the platform because he forgot his hose or lost it because the bumper flexed, plug fell out and hose is some where beside the interstate.
