Do I need 15 or 20 feet? Any special end fittings you really like? Do I need the slinky stand or just lay the hose down?
I just noticed that I forgot to add about the slinky stand.

I have one so I use it, if I can I will tuck the water hose and power cord under it to keep things neat.

I am in a KOA right now and the rules say you need to keep the slinky off the ground.

I guess it is one of those deals when you need to decide if it is a necessity.

Will get that too then... since KOA's will be part of our camping as well.
Patiently awaiting arrival of coach...buying lots of stuff to make me happy in the meantime!

I have a 15' Rhino, 2 10' extensions just in case and the Slinky.
I have the dealer supplied hose which is still unused in the bag, if anyone needs a free hose come and get it .

Another vote for Rhino hose. Over two years of fulltime use with no problems.

Good move. Dealers always skimp on sewer connections The Camco Rhinoflex is the best out there. Several other "Attachments" you can get for your Rhinoflex as well. If you are a Amazon Prime member, check them out - prices better than WalMart & Amazon has just about everything you would need in RV accessories!

Ford - did you mean keep the sewer hose off the ground? If you DO mean the slinky, please post picts of your levitation magic

Back on task...

Yes, a Slinky is a great addition (and if you do the fencepost mod with the gutter support slide out the gutter support fits nicely on the slinky and adds a lot of stability!

Rhino! Rhino! Rhino! Rhino!
Did I mention Rhino?

We always use a slinky, I have seen hoses just laying across the ground....some camp sewer connections I have seen and used are up off the surface 2" to 3" rather not have any 'build up' at the connection.

That is certainly NOT a correct statement. I'm lucky to make 25%.
