What make sense to me:

Keep the elbow in a plastic bucket until you use it at the dump station. When you use the blackwater hose, keep it as straight as possible rather than having a lot of unneeded turns in it. Make the slope continuous in a downward direction - no sags to collect gunk. There are plastic props available for that purpose but you can use rocks, wood, or whatever. Follow the 1st dump with closing the valve and put more fresh water into the black tank (with flush toilet mechanism) and then open the black valve again. Close the black valve and dump the grey water. You can do a better job than this, but it seems to work OK and the hose gets rinsed. Do get rubber gloves and maybe hand sanitizer...

I have this kit. Amazon.com: Camco 39761 RhinoFLEX 15' Sewer Hose Kit with Swivel Fitting: Automotive
and a clear 45 as well.

Get a box of gloves too!!

This is exactly what I did including the clear 45 adapter. Both the RhinoFLEX and the cheapy that came with the trailer when we picked it up fit in the bumper, though it helps to make sure the RhinoFLEX is completely compressed before you put the seal caps on each end of it. Otherwise you will waste some time trying to figure out why it's not fitting in the bumper again....

I'm VERY happy with our Rhino Flex sewer hose! That and a good hose support makes life more enjoyable when making a connection at a full service site!

mine came with the elbow
I had to buy another set as the last site were on, the sewage was at the FRONT of the trailer...(who the heck designs these sites LOL)

the elbow actually threads on to the sewage cap in the ground (usually, some sites might not have this) and twists on to the hose so there should be no leaks...just empty your grey AFTER your black, so you flush out the hose with cleaner water

We just purchased a 2016 HT 27.5 Rlts and are on our maiden voyage. I can't find the black tank valve. Our walk thru was pretty lame. The manual says it may be inside the trailer. So far the manual hasn't been very helpful. Any help is appreciated.

Rhino Flex is great hose and the ends easily fit into the bumper for storage. Good idea someone mentioned to have a white hose for water and green hose for dump purposes and "never the two will meet".
