Sewer hose kit.

We need to get another sewer hose setup for our TT. The one we have the ends don't twist on easily or nicely(leak).

At Walmart we saw a kit called KOA RV Essentials. It has the ends permently attached. Without opening a sealed box we were not able to tell much. Checked online and couldn't find any info.

Also need it to fit into our 4 inch bumper.

Anyone have any input on that kit or any similar hose setup that would meet our needs?

Check at Campingworld.com. Lots of choices and generally good illustrations.

I use Valterra fittings and they won't fit in a 4" square bumper. I mounted a 6" PVC pipe under my RV just behind the wheels and store a 20' and 2-10' hoses coupled together in it. I also have room to store the removable 90 ell in it too. All my hoses have both male and female ends so I can use them in any combination needed.

I had to do the same, added a 6" pvc pipe all the way across the back of the camper and put two screw caps on each end. I used pipe hanger to attach to the bottom of the camper right where the underbelly is attached.

Hi Tomkaren... its nearly trailer-show time. In our area at least, the dealers offer good deals on parts like sewer hoses and have all their line available. I'd recommend dropping in and discussing your needs. I'll bet they can set you up on all fronts.

I use the EZ Bayonet Coupler sewer hose. I bought this at camping world. The ends swivel making it easy to line up and keep your hose straight. The thickness of the hose lining is of excellent quality as well.

This has been my favorite hose since we started RVing back in 1999.

I have the Rhino hose set up, and YES, it fits in my bumper, however the adapter piece on the discharge end won't fit, so that goes in the cubby hole on the side. Excellent quality, and available at Wal Mart!

We're using the same hose system. I especially like the different additional lengths available. We have 2 black & 2 gray water tanks and it helps having a choice of the 10ft or 5ft lengths depending where the drain is in the ground. I use the "Y" fitting to connect both lines into one at the elbow.
I made holders out of 3/4" PVC Pipe and a cap with circles I cut out of a couple cheap plastic cutting boards from Walmart. I use this to collapse the pipe to it's fully closed position. Drilled a hole through the pipe and use a lock ring over the end to secure the end cap. This helps me store and stack them all together in one bay where the rear tanks drain. Plus, and most important, the shorter lengths are easier to hose out and keep clean.

Hey cfsoistman;

I like your idea of the storage holders to hold a collapsed hose. I can visualize most of your description but have a couple of questions.

A) What are you calling a lock ring? Is this a large e clip or is it a pin with a hair pin clip or overcenter clip?

B) Do you use two lock rings one on each end?

C) How messy is the process of collapsing the hoses?

Thanks
B
