In 2004 my wife and I purchased our first fifth wheel so we could start camping again and have some fun. We have been on 134 plus trips in our original 22’ Komfort fifth wheel and our new 28’ Cougar fifth wheel that we purchased in 2017. Arriving at camp was always an exciting time. You are on vacation and supposed to be looking forward to visiting the sights and enjoying yourself.
As we start setting up camp, we were excited and ready to relax and enjoy our vacation. Then the hassle and mess of hooking up the sewer hits us. We never looked forward to hooking up the sewer hoses so we could dump our black tanks and gray water. Every time we went camping it was a hassle to deal with the different types of hookups and facilities at each campsite. Some campsites are flat, and others are very uneven. A lot of campsites have a cement curb that is elevated so you have to pack a lot of “STUFF” to elevate your sewer hose so it will drain properly (Remember it runs downhill). Getting the proper slope and supports for your sewer hoses can be difficult and frustrating. The Hoss Quick Connect eliminates the hassle and makes hooking up your sewer a breeze.
It is never fun handling the sewer hoses, supporting the hose so it drains properly and then hooking up to the bayonet flange on the trailer sewer connection. This is a dirty and messy job that most campers hate. Campers pack blocks of wood, metal gutters, bricks, straps or anything they can think of to setup their sewer, so it drains properly.
About eight years ago I decided to make a prototype of an idea I had that would make hooking up the sewer to your trailer or fifth wheel a lot easier, faster and hassle free. Being a contractor, I figured I could use some plastic ABS sewer pipe and design an adapter that would extend to the ground and make the sewer hookup much faster and less of a hassle. After several attempts I was able to build a model that worked really well. Lots of friends called it the “Pooper Shooter”, “Poop Pipe”, “The Dumper” etc. Your imagination can run wild here!!
The Hoss Quick Connect is easily attached to the bayonet flange of your trailer or fifth wheel for a quick setup, drain and flush at your campsite. The Rigid Hose Adapter rotates 360 degrees and allows you to adjust the angle of your Hoss Quick Connect for easy setup at any elevation. The proprietary aluminum nut allows you to telescope the Hoss Quick Connect so it also adapts to the height of your trailer or fifth wheel. You can also rotate the distal tube, so it fits right on the ground or adjusts to the height of your slinky for any height. When draining your holding tanks the transparent acrylic tube lets you see clearly that the gray water and black tanks have drained completely.
After draining the sewer tanks, it is always a hassle to disconnect the fittings and hoses and then flush them with the hose at the campsite. A brass gooseneck shut-off valve is threaded into the hose adapter to allow you to drain your tanks without any sewage leaking into the freshwater supply. Be sure the shut-off valve is in the OFF position when draining your tanks. The Hoss Quick Connect is designed with a Hydro Flush anti-siphon valve and a quick-connect hose adapter that allows you to clean and flush your sewer hoses with fresh water before you break camp.
Once everything is flushed clean you can easily disconnect the Hoss Quick Connect from your trailer or fifth wheel. If your Hoss Quick Connect gets a little dirty or stiff you can lubricate the O-ring with a little oil but a little white lithium grease works best. You should not need to do this very often. Simply put your Hoss Quick Connect in the storage compartment of your trailer or fifth wheel and you will be ready, to get “On the Road Again”, for your next trip. Have Hoss Quick Connect will travel!!!!
