I have had 11 different RV's over the years. 2 Host TC. At first I didn't like it that high. But after using it a few years it's not a problem at all. Having it higher does help in some instances. As far as rinsing, it's the same, just connect to the gray valve and let it go. Host TC are not for everybody, they are big ,heavy, and expensive, but they really are nice and we love our second one. Good thing there are a lot of choices out there. Got to love America.

I am seeing some You Tubes were the dumping of the black water tank on thier HOST is the bane of their existence.

Right now with my Eagle Cap 950 with a traditional black/grey water dump location I can dump both tanks in less than 15 minutes. Just don’t see that happening with the HOST set up. I think it is going to be a deal breaker for me.

Nice quote...I saw her comments today. I can understand why Host wants a level tank to dump. The fluids would help move the solids and not be like a table cloth trick with the dishes still in their place.
Maybe more attention to having some clean water in the tank before using? I have used a wand before with success, and also use a 10" clear extension while dumping sometimes paired with a Flush King attachment.
In these times, if you don't want your Host for any reason, there are buyers in line.

It’s just too bad that HOST didn’t nail one of the most important functions of a RV. When I mentioned my perceived design flaw to them on the phone, the response was “you like the slide out basement storage?”, meaning if the black tank was in the basement you would have not slide out storage tray.

I think that's the thing about designs. There are always tradeoffs. I don't personally like a bathroom next to the bedroom, but others do. It's not necessarily wrong because you don't like the tradeoffs.

100% true ! I had the same concern about this dump valve location when I was considering the purchase of my Host Cascade, but I have no regrets about the purchase. It is just something that takes getting used to. PLEASE NOTE: " user mistakes/errors" are vividly remembered so training is rapid !

When a company designs something that fits their floor plan, that's not a "design flaw"

I know people who hate dumping there tanks with DP's. I usually dump both my tanks in less than 10 minutes. I've been doing it for 30 years, it's just not a big deal to me.

Sounds like the method you are doing would need to be done at your own FHU site as you would not want to take that much time at a more public dump station that might have a line....
