THOR #9314
Vegas sewer dump area

I am having a real problem trying to get a handle on hooking up the sewer hose.

I canít get my hands in the sewer area to get a good hold on sewer hose to hook it on to the PVC thingie where all the blac and grey water cones out of.

My question is: on my vegas 27.7 would it compromise any structural items if I got the bottom hole where the sewer hose comes up through enlarged so could have room to twist the sewer hose on ???

The hook up point for your hose should rotate down towards the hole.. At first it can be difficult to rotate but it does and that is how it works...

yes, what happens, not sure if it is because I am 70 with bad knees, and short , that darn sewer door get in my way snd i canít reach from under to hook it up, so am looking for a way with the hook up point pointed down i can get my hands in the compartment and get that sucker on.
This seems to be the only thing that is kicking my butte.
I have tried to put and leave like an 45 degree extender on it so i can get to it, alas
It hangs down to far yo drive it like that.

If it is same as my 24.1, is tough angel with bad knees. I have cleaned the fittings and sprayed silicone on them. I also carry big channel locks when knees and shoulders are not happy.

Sewer area help

I know what you mean. I keep one of those small one-step folding steps in that cubby ( fits fine small end in first) and sit on it to to hookups. Close enough to the ground for leverage and to get under the door and saves the knees!

Could you leave one of those two-foot sewer hose extensions hooked to the outlet, and just drop it down through the hole, when you need it?

If you're talking about my suggestion: don't forget to pick up a cap for the end of that extension!

I put a 90 degree elbow on it--have to feed the elbow up from the bottom once the outlet has been rotated enough to let the elbow fit.

I usually reach around the open door to get to the hole. Do it with the slide(s) in.
