The Sewer Support You’ve Always Wanted

Posted In: Blog, Product Review, RV Lifestyle, RV Products

Here on LongLongHoneymoon.com, we often inform RV camping newcomers about products that service the lifestyle. Take the Camco Sidewinder Sewer Support (http://goo.gl/T7j1rg), for example. This is one of those products that pretty much every RV owner acquires, sooner or later. But when you buy your first RV, you may have no idea these things exist.

No one grows up fantasizing about someday buying a really nice sewer hose support. In fact, many newbies might reasonably ask, “What the hell is a sewer hose support and why on earth do I want one?”

With a sewer hose support, gravity works WITH you to drain your tanks. (Click the pic to get your own.)

Here’s the deal. When you empty your RV water tanks, you really want ALL of their contents to flow freely through your sewer hose into the dump station abyss. The less time spent actually handling the sewer hose, the better. (That’s my own personal policy, anyway.) Yet sometimes if the hose is lying flat on the ground, its contents do not completely drain.

The Sidewinder model even includes a carrying handle. (Click the pic to get your own.)

A sewer support like the Sidewinder elevates the hose from the ground, allowing gravity to work with you instead of against you. When you open the drain valve on your RV, water rushes in a downward direction from your RV along the support before finally emptying into the ground.

By the way, my policy is to always empty the black water first. Once the black water has completely drained, I shut the black water valve, and finally open the grey water valve. The soapy grey water helps to flush the hose clean (or at least cleaner).

The Camco Sidewinder is a quality product that has been designed specifically for this purpose. This model is nice in that it includes a handy carrying handle. It folds down to a small package for storage.

Yes, the neighbors will be impressed.
