A picture of the campsite (under construction) at the home base. Water and electric (20/30/50 amp) are on the wall of the house. Once it's completely graveled, all that remains is to cut the sewage pipe so that it's closer to the ground. The covers for the septic tank are on the left side of the picture

Mine is just a little far for regular hose I think. I was thinking about just getting some PVC to bridge the gap. But then I thought a couple lengths of standard RV sewer hose might work...

How far do you guys think is too far to run standard RV sewer hose? I could grade it pretty well, I think...

It wouldn't matter as you are going to have to rinse with plenty of water anyway.

In other circumstances if the run and diameter was too large the solids would stop and the liquid would run out but you are not going to let it sit anyway so it wouldn't matter....

after you dump send lots of water down the hose to rinse

My neighbor's sewer line runs across the edge of my property to main sewer line at the road. It has several clean-outs on it. I just unscrew the lid from one of those clean-outs and dump right there. I usually run the black tank rinse for 20-30 minutes when I'm done.

That was my plan. I was afraid that with the "texture" of the inside of the standard sewer hose, I could run into problems with a really long run of it, but I have 2 hose bibs in very close proximity to both ends of the run, and I have a sewer hose to water hose adapter, so I could get more than plenty of water down the line.

I might just have to try this... If it doesn't work right, I'm only out the cost of a couple lengths of RV sewer hose, and I could just keep those around for spares.

The big consideration here in that the ribbed inside of an RV sewer hose isn't going to allow the solids to "slide" through as easily as PVC pipe. If you can afford it, engineer it, and store it (if necessary), I'd suggest building the extension with PVC. I think it will be a lot easier flushing "x" feet of PVC pipe than "x" feet of RV sewer hose- and a lot less ornery to handle too.

I was poking around looking at it last night. I think I could make a run along the side of my house from PVC. I can get 10 ft lengths of 3" pipe, and I would need 4. It would be pretty easy to rig it with a slope, and I could connect one sewer hose at the front (from RV to PVC), and one at the back (from PVC to sewer outlet). The only thing I haven't quite figured out yet is how to easily mate the RV sewer hose (hopefully using the quick connect fittings) to the ends of the PVC. I found some flexible fittings that would probably do the job.

I've been poking around on the internet to figure out what is available, but I haven't had a chance to go put my hands on anything. I work better if I can see it and touch it, when I'm in the store with the parts in my hand, I can engineer just about anything I need...

Of course, it would be ideal to have a contractor put in an outlet up next to the driveway that goes straight to the septic, but if DW saw me do that, there would likely be a homicide at my house

At the end you connect your sewer hose to, will a 3" to 4" adapter with a 4" elbow make it too high? The 4" opening for your 3" sewer hose would be the same as what's found at many campgrounds. As an alternative, you could also use a 3" elbow and then the 3" to 4" adapter, but I think this setup would be even higher.

I have a Valterra 90 Degree sewer hose elbow with removable sewer adapter on the end my sewer hose that will fit a variety of sewer pipe openings, plus I also have one of those rubber doughnuts to fit the "oddballs". Judging from the picture, the Valterra might work with the 3" pipe without any adapter, but my TT's not handy to verify this for you.

put this on the end of the pvc near the trailer and get one of these for your hose


if of course you use rhino flex if not you get the idea

then cap it when not in use

That looks just about right
