When I mentioned my perceived design flaw to them on the phone, the response was “you like the slide out basement storage?”,

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


I see most people have put clear extensions off of the black water dump to extend it past the slide wall. What I see on the videos and already saw it in my mind is that you cannot rinse the black water out of the entensions that are past the dump valve, without carefully taking the whole contraption to the gray water dump valve. I see drips of black water coming out of that tube past the dump valve.....

Now like you say if you have your black water flush hooked up you can run that for as long as it takes I guess.

In my 8 years of truck camping I would say maybe 50% of the dump stations have threaded hoses that you could connect to your flush point.

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.


I'm not sure I know what DP stands for...Dual .....??


My guess is Diesel Pusher. In other words, what most would consider the top of the RV pyramid.

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..


Totally agree! I would use the wand at home after dumping as an internal wash and leave that diluted fluid in the tank until the next trip.

You know **** happens…..and if it does, better to happpen 2 feet off the ground than 5 feet.

It’s a very quirky place for a dump valve if you ask me and the grey tank dump is in another location so you cannot rise you hose after a black water dump with your grey water…..


I have seen the cascade dumped by cascade owners on YouTube and I see it as a non issue. It also has the black tank in the driver's slide. I rinse my sewer hose by way of the clear elbow with a hose fitting for back flushing into the tanks and then closing tank valve and flushing sewer hose. I carry hose repair ends and an extra hose for this function. Many dump stations have hoses but no fittings (male end missing usually). I love the host campers and their engineers thinking outside the box to allow so much more in a TC than I could have ever imagined. Sewer dump location never threw up red flags when I ordered my Cascade, it is amazing the things, small things that are factors in what determines what we purchase. Got to love the incredible choices we have. Barry

My Mammoth external water shower connection is next to the dump connections. I can run the the black flush from my external shower if I still have water in the fresh tank.
