2 Questions.

I'm sure I will have a 1000 more, but these ?s are based on having owned SOB before. Do you have a shutoff valve in the water supply line behind your toilet? My 31sl does not. I ask because I once discovered a ruptured flush valve after traveling 400 miles to a nice campground. I was able to isolate it and use a pail of water to flush the toilet for our two week trip. Inconvenient, but better than going back home.

I also used a Sewer Solution system so I didn't really need to worry about sloping my line. What do you use to maintain a slope with the Waste Master hose? I see many devices, but some have bad reviews and some are expensive. I think I could rig a PVC gutter piece and it would save money. I am not a cheapskate, but I do admit to being a tightwad. That is how I can afford the RW.

I have a shut off behind the toilet now, but is was installed by me.
I have a stinky slinky & rain gutter cut in 3.5' sections & currently using both on about 30' of sewer hose as the sewer drop is about 4' behind us. When these hoses are worn out I'm going to buy the sewer solution system.

I also installed a shutoff valve in the line behind the toilet. I have the black plastic expandable hose holder. I also purchased the holder from waste master but have not installed it yet. it was not cheap but is adjustable to ground conditions

Uhhhh...that was a compliment.
I hate to see plastic fittings on everything the RV manufacturers produce. Just crap. Gets old and cracks...simply prolonging what you were trying to fix in the first place.

Your right I to would rather go with quality than aesthetics.
I was just fooling with you

Shut off valves should be installed in multiple places since most RVs don't have water manifolds. The one behind the toilet is easy to install and well worth the time and money due to the leaky valves that some have experienced. Having "Pex" tools and fittings would also be important for the emergencies.

As for the "discharge tube".......and endless problem and many different opinions. I switched to a marcerator system and would go back. It works like a charm with no mess.
