Mods to our NEW 8285WS

Made some mods as you can see it has to do with the SEWER HOSE. If you look closely, I used "RHINO FLEX", but had to mod it to fit into the storage tube under the front of the 5VR. First I used 4" PVC sewer pipe,
two threaded fittings, two 4" plugs, Two boat cleats to make it easy to remove plugs. Used the existing trim and screws under the RV to attach
the storage tube. Before installing the tube, drill 1/4" holes along the bottom for drainage. Do not over tighten the SS clamps (will warp the ends, Causes binding of The screw in plugs). Also you have to remove part of the "EARS" from the drainage hose for it to fit the "TUBE".
Photos to show before and after hose mod. Used hack saw and Drimel tool
to remove some of the plastic ears. Becareful on the "LOCKING" ears on the hose (do not remove too much)
