Ok, I quess I'm a little slow. A friend of mine told me he uses quick hose connectors for his water inlet and flush inlet. I had never thught about it. Always delt with trying to get the hose tight so it wouldn't leak. Went to Lowes and purchased two quick release hose connectors for about $13.00 and istalled them on my water and flush inlets. A little plumming tape and I was done. Used it this past weekend. Wow ! strange how little things can make you happy. Anyone else use them? If not put them on. Then just clip on the hose and smile.

I installed them on my fresh water and flush hoses. I cut the hoses about 15 inches from the end that connects inside the storage compartment and installed the quick connects at the cut. Now when I hook up the hoses I push them through the hole in the floor of the storage compartment and connect the quick connects. Since its underneath the trailer where the connection is made when I disconnect the hoses the water in the hoses drains on the ground not in the storage compartment.

That's one of those "now why didn't I think of that" moments.Brilliant, I'm on my way to the store now, thanks! I really like the extended hose concept, cool

Ditto on the brilliant idea ! The water draining into the floor of the compartment has bothered me from day one, just couldn't think of a good solution. Thanks for the tip. Going to Home Depot tomorrow AM.

Here are the brass quick connectors I installed to my unit. And pictures of the water and black flush inlets; before and after.

Here is how I installed my quick disconnects. Once disconnected I pull the short hoses back inside the storage compartment.

I put a shut off on the end of my hoses. It allows me to purge the air from the hose before hooking it up.
