Challenger question 4

Looking at those 37KT owners. Can you show me a photo of how you run your sewer connection. As the dump pipe doesn’t line up with the compartment floor hole. Thanks

KC

I don't have the same model, but many models have a connection that will actually rotate down to the outlet hole. I had the same concern about mine until I read other posts that showed me the solution.

If it is like my 34 J Hurricane, the sewer port will rotate down toward the whole but still not line up. I used flexible sewer hose that I attached when the fitting was facing up. rotated it down as far a sit could go toward the whole (still off by 3 inches), and keep the hose connected permanently. There is enough room in the cabinet to store like this.

I use a clear 45 degree clear coupler between the drain and the sewer hose. Makes the angle easier to connect everything together. Also provides the benefit of seeing when black tank is clean.

Like nmrver, on my 37ND I use a 45 clear elbow. I have gone one step further and when not connected I added a clear straight connection which will catch and small dripping leaks from the gate valves. This prevents any surprise from happening when I remove the cap. Photo attached.

Also, when connecting at a campground I use a Y connector to connect the 2 drains into a single hose for the sewer connection. I have only stayed at one campground that had 2 sewer connections at the site.

I run a 10 foot hose off each drain into the Y and then a 10 or 20 foot from the Y to the sewer hookup.

We use the Y connector when we are parked for a while (more than 3 days). But for overnight stays - cleaning the lines is a lot more work - I just use 1 line and dump individually. Personal preference.

Not sure how your coach is plumbed. On my 37ND the 2 high use items are plumbed into different tanks. The kitchen and bathroom sinks into the front grey with the shower and outdoor sink into the rear grey. Makes more sense for me to Y the connection at setup.

Our Challenger 37TB is plumbed with a Grey and Black both mid and rear with 40 gals in each tank. Agree the Y connection works well but if it is just an overnight stay I dump in the AM as we are leaving. Just our preference - correction the DW wants nothing to do with the sewer so it is mine alone.

We found out the mid gray dump only is used by the Washer. As we don’t have one we don’t need a “Y”. Thanks All
