Sewer Donut?
« on: October 04, 2006, 07:45:03 PM »
Just read on one RV park's web site that "Sewer donuts are REQUIRED on all units."

I haven't heard that term before.  What is it?

Sewer hose donut - A plastic or rubber ring used to get a good seal between the sewer hose and the campground sewer connection. Sewer hose donuts are required at many campgrounds

You only need the donuts if the sewer connection doesn't have a threaded fitting.  Even if it doesn't, sometimes the connection elbow or other fitting you have will make a force fit into the pipe.  We carry a donut for those cases where it's needed.  Even if the park (or local regulations) doesn't require it, you should always have a tight fitting sewer connection to avoid odors and possible overflow when dumping.

I had to buy one for a campground that required them this spring.  As I recall, it was less than $2 at Wallmart.

Thanks.  It doesn't say "donut", but I assume that this is one.
