Can't say I've ever had that problem. Could it be an ill fitting clear elbow? Does it pop off if you remove that clear elbow and put the hose directly on the white fitting going into the sewer?

Can you put that clear 90 degree elbow at the other end of your connection? The way it twists is guaranteed to come apart. Other than duct tape, I have no idea how to keep it stable.

Personally, with those fittings Iíd stick the clear 90 at the coach instead of two 90ís together.

I'd agree. With the 90 at the coach, unless the outlet is already pointing straight down, the weighr of the hose should keep it from coming apart.

The elbows and hose fittings should be really tight when being turned the last 1/2 inch or so and the round "nubs" should be resting in a notch. Might need to get a different elbow.

Morning , it’s not just the clear 90 , it’s all the connectors, they twist together easy -I just thought they would be tighter or have to snap together, if they get bumped while in use they will come apart - I will just continue with the zip ties ..thanx all .PS...I put the clear 90 in because the green would not stay in the white 90 -thanx again

I would get rid of the clear 90 and put a 6" straight clear on the coach end so it is easier to see when the tank is empty.

I'd say it's time to invest in new sewer hose and fittings if they are that loose. Are you sure they are fully snapping into each other?
All of mine (even different brands) all fit together very tightly and 'snap' solidly into one another. We also carry around extra o-rings that they all use to seal, and make sure they haven't fallen out.
As I said, I've never had any that separate when moved or touched, and I use several elbows and a Flush King.

The green wouldn't fit onto the white anyway since it's a male 2 male connection. Elbow fittings usually have a female fitting.

Like these which might actually serve you better:

As said the OP needs to get rid of the 90 degree and Iwritecode needs new glasses.

The green hose end and white 90 are male / female , that is the way I have been using , all these hose and fittings are less than six months old , they just donít click together tight enough for my like liking

Since the hoses and fittings are so new, I'd just continue to use the twist ties to secure the connections.
If you ever need to replace them, try to get new ones that have the same manufacturer. The connections can be different enough to cause the problem you're having.

I'm with the missing seals idea, ... with the labels still on the elbow, it must be new and so likely came off the assembly line that way if both are missing, ... and if both are missing you might not notice that, but if only one were missing you would probably notice the difference right away, ...

I've stared at the original picture for five minutes and it just doesn't look right. Where is the couplers that thread on in reverse to the hoses so you can mate "male to female" connections to the hoses and elbows.Should have a bunch of orange connectors with the sewer hose kits that the major players in this market sell.

yep, a better look at the pic, ... the green to orange connection is male green to female orange(good), BUT the white to orange connection is female white to female orange(not good), .... but if the green/orange connection is loose, a missing seal could be the problem there,

Look again...
The elbow (orange) to the ground sewer connection (white) is NOT female to female.

Here is the elbow by itself. I don't know if it was an optical illusion or what but I was seeing it wrong at first too.
