Question Sewer hose kits...

What's the best out there? I am looking at a Rhino-Flex kit but there are camco products and some kind of 360 degree swivel connection sewer hose kits. What do you use, and what would you get if you were to replace the one you are using now? Does the Rhino flex hose with connectors still fit in my bumper storage?
Any information is greatly appreciated.
Happy Camping!

I just switched to the Rhino-Flex and really like the system because it adjusts to the length you need. However, it will not store in the bumper. I purchased a plastic container and store all sewer equipment together. Don't claim it's the best but fits my needs well. Jtant

Have the rhino flex and I am very happy with it. Mine fits in my 4x4" bumper, the ends have 4 tabs must align those with the corners and take of the orange flange that screws in to the ground sewer pipe. What I really like about it is the accordion effect stays it's shape pretty well so it stays on my stands

I bought the Rhino-Flex this season. I did have one mishap with it, it was not tight on the end, and let loose on me. I got it tight and it works great. I like how strong it is, and how it folds up.

I always used cheapo hoses and really never had any problems. If they broke or wore through, cheap and easy replacement. This year I purchased the rhino system and am really impressed with it. I keep it in a container with all my sewer connectors and I am really anal , get it anal, about keeping it clean.

This group of parts will do the job well. Valterra part# F02-3111 45 degree clear threaded elbow,part#F02-3102 hose coupler, part#F023103 threaded sewer adaptor, (2) 10 foot sections of (GOOD) sewer hose,your choice. Fits in the bumper and does not require any special fittings when repair is needed in the middle of Nowhere! Youroo!!

got a rhino too, at walmart. the hose that came with the tt was a joke. got a blue boy and it came with a short one too - but that I use just for the blue boy.
I have a rubbermaid containter that I keep it all in. From what I've heard using the bumper will eventually allow rust in side the bumper which acts like sandpaper on the hose.
Some have mounted plastic pipe or fenceposts under their trailers for the sewer hoses and some use gutters inside like a drawer. Slick as all get out.
