Hey "ole man"

I bookmarked your link. I like those and they're reasonably priced! Thanks for posting them.

I've been using the ones from HF for years. Never really had a problem with them ripping until those left in the box were a couple years old.

I use heavy duty, lined gloves, the largest size I could get. They are easy to slip hands into and I appreciate them on cold days. Rinse them off and store them in the shower.

Tip: Drive as close as possible to the dump station and stop so the wheel is lined up with the dump. That way the stinky slinky reaches both outlets without moving the rig. First black, then gray.

I don't use gloves when I use the toilet, I simply try to not to get any waste on my hands , then I wash my hands when I'm done just to be sure.
Same policy applies when I empty the black and gray tanks.

Wouldn't it make sense to have the black and grey pipes meet up prior to the slinky connection?

Exactly what I was thinking Glenn. I'm surprised that apparently no one on this forum has undertaken this project on a Scamp. At least no one has posted having done it.

May be on the top of my list.....

They're too far away from each other in my opinion. I've never had any issue with them being separated....other than making sure you're careful where you park near the campground's sewer hookup.
