Black/Grey outlet

on my Kodiak 300hbsl ( memory serves me) I have to crawl under my living room slide out to hook up the hose, the oulet is a good 4 foot or more away from the handles...

would there be a problem shortening this? didnt know if there needed to be extra length with the black water,, it sure is annoying..

thanks in advance,, added question,, looked under that soft shower and see a U shaped board with foam and three posts, anyway to shore this up better, I am a big guy.. all the electric comes up that hole too

Most RV's I've had the handles haven't been right next to the dump hose connection . I never found that to be a problem. A trick is to connect your hose before the slide goes out. That way there is no down on all fours to get to it.

That's true but I use that on all fours time to look at things under there. Seals, running gear, tires, wiring and the underside of the slide.

How else you gonna find wasp's nest and mud dobbers?
