TLAK,

I don't think you are missing anything. Since the SS requires a pressurized water source to "power" its jet pump, I always have a grey water hose with me-It's even grey! I never use my freshwater hose for dumping. The SS does incorporate a one-way flow valve, but I prefer a dedicated hose. If the dump station does not have a threaded connection on the rinse hose where I need it, I almost always can use my hose to substitute. In fact, I have never had to use my 4" hose to dump! Other's experience will vary and there are likely to be situations where pressurized water is unavailable, period. In that case, a 4" hose or an electric macerator pump might be required. That is the reason I carry 10' of 4" hose "just in case".

Cheers!

Rhino hose here also. Will last years unless you abuse it. Cheep hoses just don't last like a Rhino.

How do you do it without a connection or do you unscrew their hose completely?

I have 3 septic systems on my current house to deal with. Septic fields aren't a problem, except when they don't work or you have too many of them too close together. However in NC it is against the law to dump any form of waste water on the ground in most areas.

Too Tall, if the rinse hose connection is available/visible and it looks like I can remove it, I have and used my hose and then re-attached "their" hose.
