Can Sewer Hose in Lippert Waste Master System be Trimmed Down Shorter


Love the cam lock system which would be perfect for my arthritis hands. Unfortunately the hose is too long for my needs....5-6 ft extended and maybe 3 ft compressed would be perfect very little storage in my van conversion rv. Can this hose be cut off and reattached to the system couplers ?

A sewer hose that is too long is an annoyance. One that is too short makes for a mess! It is possible to trim the hose down, remove the parts inside of the end that you cut, then use some solvent, # A05-0303, to "glue" the now shorter hose inside of the one end.

Or you could cut a section out from the middle of the hose and use a coupler such as # F02-2025BK with the solvent above to secure both ends into the coupler.

If you always need the same length hose then this is a viable option. But if there may be a situation where you need the length then you won't have it after trimming the hose down so keep that in mind.
