213 sewer height while camping

We bought a 2008 213exp and love it. The only thing that seems to be a problem is emptying my sewer on site at full hook- up sites. My sewer pipes empty low and unless I have a perfect site I have to walk out my hose to empty it because they stub up their sewer hook ups(which is common). A friend of mine has a 19h and has the same problem. Any suggestions? I'm sure some of u have been through this and find it a bit frustrating. Thanks

I suppose you could use levelers and raise your trailer? Even though you're not using them to 'level', they can be used to give yourself some extra lift if you put them on both sides.

You could try using something like this. See my earlier September post on this subject.

I own a Jayco Skylark which is saddled with the same problem. One day while researching on line I found an rv sewer hose tool called The Sewer Solution. It actually allows you to dump uphill as well as flush out your tank. I found it well worth the investment, and now find the task of emptying no longer a chore. Check out the videos on line. What you see in the video is exactly how it works. Would rate the product 5 stars. Also read all of the reviews associated with this product.

Same problem here. Could install a lift on your TT, use the block method as stated above but we typically make note of some sites that have a low sewer "stub" and try to reserve those sites if we return. Of course if its a new CG to you its a gamble as to what you get on your site when you arrive. Whats not fun about "walking" the sewer hose at 8AM while others watch you for cheap entertainment and drink their morning coffee ?

I'm so happy I ordered my Jay Feather w/ the 2" lift kit. Hopefully it helps for situations like these.

I too have the sewer solution and it has been working flawless for the last 2 years. The only negative I've heard is the extra water they use. But outside that it's excellent.

The problem with lifting the trailer is that the 213 only has a single step at the door. A couple inches higher makes a very hard entry into the RV. I wish it had a double step, especially for the kids.
