Dump set up in 2013 Mirada 29ds

We are the 2nd owners of a 2013 Coachman Mirada 29ds.
??What is needed to utilize the black discharge pipe under the dump valve storage area, (with scew off cap) that would allow hose to be attached to tank discharge in storage area and down thru opening in floor &thru pipe... which would allow storage door to be closed and locked while hooked up to dump? Where is it avaiable? Attached are pix of our set up.
I think the are all sideways ; (

We shortened a sewer hose and put a new connection on the motorhome side. It stays in the extension as a permanent connection. This works really well for us.
It also keeps all the dirty work outside the of the utility bay.
Safe travels

I pulled the hose out a little bit for you to see the type of connector it is. The black cap that is held on with a cable, goes on last.
Actually, at the red connection I put a clear 4" section of sewer hose then the remaining long hose that goes out to dump. That way I can see when the water coming out of holding tanks is clear.
I keep all the sewer hoses in a dedicated tub in a separate bay. I wish someone would come up with a good idea for sewer hose storage.

Have you added any steering stabilizers or sway bars to your Mirada? If so your thoughts?

No, we have not. I don't know if we need sway bars. The Mirada rides and drives the same as the Class C Itasca we had prior to this unit. The Itasca had sway bars and shocks added by first owner. Both on Ford chassis.

We live in Louisiana. We travel a lot in the southern states. Next week we are headed up to Indiana then make a big loop around back through Florida. Then spending the summer at Chickasaw Nat Rec Area in Oklahoma volunteering for Nat Park Service. I imagine we will get windy conditions there.
I do most of the driving and when the wind blows hard we stop. I don't like being blown around.
