Waste Master Questions

Howdy,

We just received our new Forester 3011 and FR nicely provided us with a Lippert Waste Master system. While I understand how it works and why LCI thinks it's the greatest, I'm stuck on a few things.

  1. Can't stow it in the bumper like I have with my past trailers. I know there's a $100 storage box available that mounts under the RV, but I'm not sure I'm in love with that idea. I'm also not a fan of storing a dirty hose in a compartment and 18' hose + valve take up a lot of space.
  2. I need to spend $30 on an adapter to work my blue tote's hose. Not a big deal, but still kinda irritating.
  3. We always travel with a 10' and 15' stinky slinky so I'd like to get the extension kit. Holy cow! It's $160!

So FR's "gift" to me of the Waste Master means I have to drop another $300 (more than I've spent on every sewer hose and sewer doodad in the past 12 years) in accessories.

Here's the questions:

Have any other Waster Master owners come up with a clever way to store the hose/valve assembly?

Does it really extend to 18' so I wouldn't need the extension kit? My previous hoses never stretched to their full length which is why I carried two.

After my rant above, I did more research on the Waste Master the following day. Once I learned that it was originally designed to be permanently attached to the RV, things made more sense.

With some finagling, I'm able to stuff the nozzle back through the porthole in the bottom of the compartment so I won't have to disconnect the hose. I'll put a cap on the nozzle to prevent any drips from the end.

As for carrying an extension, I'm able to extend the Waste Master a full 20' from the rig. This is within a foot of using my two Valterra hoses. The Waste Master hose also stays in place without accordion-ing like regular sewer hoses.

I took the hose to an RV dump station and checked that it does fit into a standard outlet with the hinged metal cover. It's a bit snug getting it under the lid, but it does fit.

As for accessories (adapters, hoses, etc.), the best place to get those seems to be at the inventor's site, Drain Master Welcome to Drain Master He has all the available pieces and the prices are lower than Amazon.

With the valve turned off at the end we have never had anything drip when hooking or unhooking the hose.
