Clear sewer hose adapter

Just wondering what the best clear sewer hose adapter there is. I see camco has over 1000 reviews on amazon but a lot of people were saying it leaks or exploded on them. The other brand I see is the valterra which has only a few reviews but 5 stars

I have the Valtera Flush King I think it is. Works great and lets me flush the tank easily.

I use the Flush King also. I believe it is excellent and it does a great job of cleaning your tank.

No I guess not, I do not have a flush. But it has two gate valves so I do not know if you'd want that or not. Just a clear elbow is prob $5 at wally world if all your looking to see is the poo a flowing...

Love our flush king and we have an auto flush also.

So try this, run the black tank flush until the water looks clear. Then close the valve and fill the black tank and empty again. You will be surprised!!! Of course you will have to have some type of clear elbow to see it.

When cleaning the tank for storage I will auto flush for awhile, then backflush, and repeat until I'm happy.

We used our Camco over the weekend and had no issues. Time will tell I guess. The clear 45 does help to how good of a job you cleaning your tanks. It's a Rhino Flex 45 elbow.

I'd opt for the one that allows for back flushing - two reasons - the jets used for the black tank flush can get clogged and back flushing can cure that. Also if you ever want to clean our your gray tank, the back flushing can also be useful for that though depends on your pripe layout as to how effective that will be.

Camco, not Camcorder. Got to love auto correct and miss what it spelled instead, lol.

I have used a Valterra for 4 years and have never had a problem with leaking or cracking. I is still a hard twist to connect/unconnect it. I tried a straight clear first but settled on my current 45 degree bend. To me its easier to see when done. Mine is also a reverse/backflush cleanout type connection which lets you do two things at once and make is very easy to see when finished.
My 2 cents!!!

We have a 45-degree, clear plastic sewer hose adapter that includes a flushing hose fitting. Can't tell you what brand, but we have used it for 5+ years with no issues. Our fifth wheel also has a flushing attachment for the black water tanks.

Our normal routine when dumping is to install the sewer hose and adapter, open the black water dump valve and turn on the flushing water while observing the flow of detritus and wadded up toilet tissue. After several minutes we open both grey water dump valves while still flushing the black. When flow slows to a trickle, we secure the fresh water flusher, close all tank valves, then connect the fresh water flushing hose to the fitting on the adapter. This allows us to flush residue from all the sewer and grey water hoses, without backing water into the holding tanks. The adapter also cleans the main sewer hose so we don't have to flush it again after disconnecting.

New trailer owner. The campground towed my 2014 Wildwood to the site (this is new to us), and I had them hook it up, since I wasn't sure I knew exactly what I was doing.

This is the set up that I currently have. I have yet to flush the black tank, since we have only been in the trailer for a single weekend.

I have watched many videos and read many posts that discuss the benefits of having a clear adapter so that you can see if your black tank has been adequately cleaned.

I was wondering, based on the picture, if I should purchase a straight clear adapter or is there a reason to purchase one with a 45 degree angle to it?

Thanks for your help!

You already have a downward slant so no 45 is needed. Also you have a 90 deg turn before the tank so the flush attachment won't do nothing either. Just get a plain clear straight thru fitting and be done with it.
