Sewer cap with garden hose drain fitting - recommendations?

Recommended Posts

I have been using this clear one for seven months and one of the tabs snapped off with very little force on it.

It does not appear to be very durable. Rather than buying two more (including a spare in case the new one breaks), can someone recommend a different version that is durable? Preferably clear so I can see the fluid level, but that is not critical. How about the Camco one? It has four hooks, not two, so it should be stronger. I can buy three for the price of the Valterra:

Thanks,

John - I've had a black on with 4 tabs for over five years now (two of which have been on the Oliver) and no problems at all.  However, I rarely take it off.  Sorry, but I do not remember the brand - I think I got it at WalMark and if that was the case it is more than likely a Camco product.

John,

 

I've been using a Valterra, too. It got so stiff going on and off, thought I was going to break something.  Started using Danco waterproof grease on the plastic locks and O-ring.  Working fine now.

John, I like the one in your post. IMHO, 4 lugs are always better than 2 and +1 on the gasket lube. I always just used a silicon lube.

Thanks for the comments. I ordered THREE of the Camco ones, for $8.50 shipped, as a Prime add-on item. LOL. That is cheaper than driving a few miles to Wally World. I will try to keep it lubed when one is installed, using silicone grease, but as cheap as they are I will consider them to be disposable.
