Need help figuring out a hook up my home septic system

It just so happens where I park my TT is right next to the cleanout for my septic system. I did not load pictures but if it is necessary I can.

The cap to the tank is about 1 foot below grade and is beveled concrete. Approximate diameter is about 12 inches.

I need help figuring out what a good way to install a PVC hookup so I can tie in just like at the campsite.

I can't seem to come up with anything that will be sturdy and permanent but will also allow for routine cleanings of the septic system every few years.

Any ideas?

I would make a cheap mold with wood and have a pice of right-size PVC in the middle that you can put your dump hose into, then use quick create to make that into a concrete cap that can sit on top of your clean out port for your septic tank. Should be cheap, heavy enough to not move on its own, and will be manageable enough to move when needed.

Prolly a 4" PVC male adapter
A piece of 4" pipe(to make height)
4" female adapter
4" threaded plug
This should allow your sewer hose to fit in FA once you take out plug.

I assume your fittings are 4". That's the normal size....and I assume you are using the slinky hose.

We've had RV hookups in both of our shops (50/30 power, water and sewer). On those, I set the pipe just a shade below grade (for spillage) and beveled the concrete down to it. Wish I had pictures here. However before that we used the clean outs on the sewer system. Ours already had a 4" fitting with female thread and a cap / plug, so screwing in the Rhino fitting worked out fine.

How do you connect it to the septic tank though? My tank cap is similar except buried about a foot below the surface.(no beveled concrete)

If your tank top is pvc like mine, you could just cut an accurate hole and glue a pvc threaded connector to it so your slinky connector would screw into it.
