Rear bumper can store hoses, but add a vented bumper cap. You can also purchase a hose carrier (white or black, different sizes) from Camping World or Amazon to affix to the rear bumper.

Gee, lots of this sounds complicated or over done (IMO). I use normal campground dump stations (so far). Dump blackwater first then graywater last, I keep the slinky hose in the bumper, fitting for slinky hose to dump station hole goes back into cardboard box after use in storage area (not sealed). I just rinse out slinky etc once done dumping with dumpstation water hose, have not had "any" stink or messes. Alway wash up hands right after, really rather simple and gets done quickly...

This was the first time camping (and dumping) First question: what would happen if I overfilled the black tank with the flush hose? (dump valve closed) Would it come out some vent? Is there a vent at the roof like a house? 2nd question: Does the procedure of filling a bit and sloshing around and dumping again make any sense? This whole dumping procedure is something I have to get down a bit better
I suppose it would eventually come out the roof vent. That is unless your toilet seal is a little weak then...OH BOY, you really don't want to know! Most guys I know who put water back into their black tank when the waste valve is closed do it with some sort of timer and never get distracted. I usually let the tank rinse run for awhile then close the valve, add two gallons of water, add a capful of Calgon liquid and some sort of deoderizer. I'm re-thinking the deordizer cuz not sure if it matters that much.
Moving the vehicle to make the water slosh around can't hurt but if you are getting ready to take off to another destination, it probably doesn't matter. HAPPY DUMPING!

I did it once! Black water was being forced around the toilet seal and looked like a volcano erupting. I thing the vent tube was below the water level cause nothing came out like in the movie RV. LOL

Soon as I heard my wife holler, I turned the black tank flush off, as I was there by it but got distracted.

X2. LOL! I could not pull the black tank valve fast eenouugghh! Only about a gallon leaked out and thank goodness it was after a flush already. Nevertheless my steam cleaner got a workout and a half gallon of bleach later I was done.

Now I use timer and if I am leaving the area I just pull it so I don't forget. I think you only make that mistake once.
