Dump connection on axis/vegas

any suggestions on hooking up sewer hose on axis, I seem to have issues with placement angle of dump connection. If anyone has made modifications would like to hear about them. Thanks

The output rotates. You should be able to turn it so that it is level or pointing slightly down. If it doesn't rotate you can slightly loosen the valve bolts (don't over do it).

I have a clear 90 elbow I hook to the output so that it turns and goes straight down through the hole there so I don't have to make the hose do the 90.

Hello neighbor (we are a bit Southeast of you in Canton). You might see 50 today, maybe 60 tomorrow...

Where did you pick up your Axis from?

Hello neighbor, I often visit Canton (IKEA) I purchased my Axis from General RV in Wixom. Have experienced several small issues like batteries not charging, recently purchased new one at Costco. Having to constantly reset clock on the radio. And of course the issue with angle of dump line. But Peggy and I love it and recently toured eastern US

If you don't want to rotate the ell each time you dump, you can leave it in the dump position, seal around it and cap it. Here is a pic of my mod.

That looks good, would make it very easy to hookup the hose, I took jamiegeeks advice and did rotate and installed a 90 degree clear this morning but yours looks excellent.
By the way for all current and ex-military, thank you, you have my respect and heart felt gratitude.
