Valterra Sewer Solution

Just bought a valterra sewer solution, and did my first dump. This thing is great. My dump point is slightly above the tank drains, and this was the perfect solution. Its easy to set up, cleans up easily, dumps quick, and tears down easily. I highly recommend these thing.

I have been using one for the past 4 years...I concur with your assessment.

What would you guys say is the max distance the SS will work, real world? For one trip a year we could use a way to dump the black tank if needed (close enough to run a hose for the gray), but it is up to about 130' or so, pretty level ground......

Keep looking into different ways. Though this last trip we were ok for the 5 nights. Just like to have a way to dump if need be.

What are the advantages to using this system over the traditional 3" sewer hose? From what I can see, it's just something else I have to store in one of my RV compartments...which are quite limited. With the 3" hose, I have a convenient place to store it in my bumper.

It seems to be faster. For me, the advantage was that my dump location is slightly higher than my tank. This system can pump 100' plus or up to a 3' elevation increase. It is one more item, but it can also back flush the tank, and it is self flushing also.

I have 3 10' sections for use at the storage lot and it easily manages a 30' run.

Tyler, I bought mine to replace the "starter" slinky when we bought our first TT (X23B) and our storage was also limited. I found a storage tub that fit the shower pan. At the storage lot or in motion it stayed up there. At a CG the tub fit under the TT near the sewer connection.
I think it's a great system. Never had mine smell since its self-cleaning.

I have a 2' CPVC pipe (can also use copper) with a garden hose fitting glued on one end. The other end of the CPVC pipe fits into the SS hose, then I attach a standard garden hose on the other end in order to get more length. SS wants way too much money for their 10' hose sections. I like it just cuz it's a lot cleaner. However, I don't use it at a community dump station because it does take more time.

We have the black water flush with our White Hawk, so it's pretty clean. I'm not knocking this system, just wondering if there's something I'm missing or if I'm missing out on something.
