Made Me do a Double Take

You might want to inspect that sewer hose before you pull the black tank handle.

Is it just me, or is the hose also running uphill?

For years we used the little dump hose that came with our new trailer's
basics kit. You remember-- a little cheap-o "10 ft" hose with only one
end connector, 30A to basic outlet power cord adapter, a couple packs
of various brands of holding tank treatment.

We just don't poop in the potty! Wife refuses. So the dumping process
is not as er......"interesting" as it might be for you guys!
No TP in the tanks either. Too many years on houseboats where you can't
put paper down the head so we use wastebasket.

Anyway I was dumping the tanks one day and it was a real stretch for
that little old hose. About half way thru the process it suddenly just
unraveled. It went from a hose to a slinky in about half a second.
Yeah I spilled a little on the apron that day.... at least it wasn't the chunky variety

At the beach this last year, I had *two* blue sewer hoses develop pinholes at the same time. I couldn't believe it. Fortunately I found it while running gray water.

It has been our experience while camping since 1975 in a trailer that we seldom get a site where the slinky doesn't have to run uphill. Has never been a problem as the discharge on the trailer has always be higher than the connection in the ground. We just pull the lever and when it quits flowing, close the valve, lift the hose at the trailer and walk it to the drain. A majority of the parks have the ground connection at least 3"-6" above ground for some reason or other.

designed by civil engineers but vetoed by bean counters maybe? would cost too much to set up properly perhaps.

Given the condition of the sewer hose it's kind of a moot point.
