Inventor Develops SB RV Buddy for Draining Waste from RV

Wed Dec 28, 2016

The task of draining waste water from an RV can be both strenuous and messy, causing the surrounding ground to become contaminated. In order to solve these problems, an inventor from Southgate, Michigan has come up with and developed the patent-pending SB RV Buddy.

This device provides a more efficient way to drain waste water from an RV. It avoids strain and hassle, prevents line backups and avoids messy spills and ground contamination.

Ergonomic and designed to be easy to use, the SB RV Buddy can work for all RV owners, and as an alternative, can be used for drainage of any type of liquid.

The original design was submitted to the Bingham Farms office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers. For more information, write Dept. 15- -, InventHelp, 217 Ninth Street, Pittsburgh, PA 15222, or call 412-288-1300 ext. 1368.
