Sewer Hose???

Now that I have the Motor Home I need stuff...I'll start with the Sewer Hose. What should I get? There seems to be quite a few options, I have read the online reviews and still not sure so I figured I'd ask the experienced dumpers on your opinions. So let the knowledge flow!

I've got the Rhino Extreme hose (15 foot length), and it's done a great job of handling a pretty crappy chore...

^^^Let the Rhino do the dirty work.^^^ That's what I use and it has nice caps on both ends to close it up in storage. Nothing like finding out the hard way how cheap the cheap ones are made!

One more thing: Have you figured out where you're going to stow it yet?

I store all my sewer stuff in a dedicated exterior storage bin. It's one that is not open to other bins, nor to the interior of the RV.

Another vote for the Rhino. And ours is kept in a plastic tote with lid. We have a couple sections of the hose that can be locked together if we need.

Get an extension too.
One place we were at, had the sewer hook up, all the way at the end of the the camp spot, and they got us for a $20 extra length we needed.
Needless to say, it was our first excursion when that happened, don't remember how long it was, but we carry it along with the rest of the dumping equipment.

Storing the Stinky Slinky...

We're going to give this a try. It's not ideal; but it does fit!

Guess I'm odd man out. We have used Dominator sewer hoses since 2011 and they have worked great. Added clear plastic 90 degree elbows for each end and a 10' extension and 5' extension along the way.

Dominator hoses compress down smaller for better storage IMHO. Every couple of months I will wash the outside of them off, let them dry, and then spray the with 303. All of the sections still look and operate like new.

We pull ours out, and give it good washing after each use also!

I have (2) 10’ sections of Rhino and (2) 5’ sections. That way I can go in 5’ increments all the way to thirty feet if I have to. Maybe overkill but we have two black tanks and one gray tank due to the mid bath so we sometimes hook both connections up to a wye fitting. And we did use all thirty feet one time.

Sewer hose storage

I put a camco sewer hose storage tube under my coach and used stainless steel hose clamps to attach it to the frame. It also comes with a lockable door and it can extend in length. Also I bought a 5 foot extension that I keep inside a seal able tote for when I park near the dump station. No need to always take pout my longer hose every time.

I put one of those under my Outlaw as as well. It turned out to be a pretty nice way to store the slinky...
(Note: the outlaw came with a storage compartment specifically for the slinky: it was too small of a diameter, for a hose with any connectors on it! )

We store our Rhino in the hollow square back bumper. After rinsing I just pop the rubber end cap off, slide the hose in and pop the cap back on. The connectors have to be turned just right to fit but it works like a charm.

Rhino hose - 2 10-foot sections. I have some space under the black tank that is just high enough for the hose to fit.

I also have a FloJet portable macerator that I use to dump to a sewer clean out at home (35 feet away and a couple of feet uphill). I’m getting a 3/4” hose (dedicated to poop duty) and am strongly considering using the macerator all the time and saying bye to the stinky slinky.
