How much sewer drain pipe do you carry?

We were at a resort park on the coast a few weeks ago. Backed into the site we reserved (nice one btw). Got to hooking everything up. I had noticed that the sewer was quite a ways back in a walkway that devides the two rows of spots.

I walked it off and it would have taken me 25 feet of sewer pipe to hook up and that would have been stretched like a rubber band. So figure 30 feet of pipe.

I am not complaining or anything, but should I be expected to run into this across the country?

Been doing this a long time and I don't think I have ever had a sewer hookup further than about 15 feet.

We carry 20 foot for long term hook up and one 10 footer in the bumper for highspeed dumps.

I didn't have a coupler to make the 10 and 20 into a 30 so we just kept the valves closed till we left and I then backed further into the empty site behind us to dump.

Sorry for the long winded post about pooper tubes.


What say all ya'll?

I carry two 15' sections of Rhino Flex. I have only ever needed one section, so the other is still in the box.
Also, carry a 20' section of the Camco brand as back-up, in-case one of the others spring a leak, or get crushed, etc.
I also carry extra couplers, ends & clamps.

I am a nut...

2 x 25'
1 x 5'
2 x couplers.
1 x y pipe ( cause now I have 4 tanks and 2 drains thanks fr!!)

1 of each 10 15 50 100' coax ( and barrel connectors)
50 feet of 50 amp extension.
2 x 25' water
1 x 3' water ( very handy for that almost reach but don't want to drag out another hose.

Point is there is NO standard. And the hookups could be anywhere.

I have the 15' Rhinoflex and another 10' extension that is just normal hose. Haven't need more than the 15' yet. In many cases we aren't in a park for long so if I can't reach the sewer I just wait till we are about ready to go then move the rig just far enough to reach the dump, dump the tanks and hit the road.

Ran into a couple places this summer that needed 20'. I guess they design the sites to a certian spec and well we all know that there are no standards when it comes to tank drains on RV's. Our Edgewater was at the back and the V-Lite is abt 2ft in front of the wheels.

We have the bath and a half so there's 2 drains. We carry a "Y" and 3- 5 foot sections and 3- 10 foot sections of hose. This enables us to make connections no matter how close the drain may be. It is the EZ Coupler System by Valterra. Why am I saying we and us??? It's me, I hook it all up. DW doesn't venture to that side of the coach other than to guide me in to a site. I made some holders to minimise the area needed to store them.

For me, it's one 15' Rhinoflex, and the cheesy one (10-15'?) that came with the TT (still in the plastic sleeve). If I ever need more--I guess a trip to the store will be in order.

Thanks guys for the ideas.

I havn't heard of this Rhino flex before. I'll look into it and maybe buy two 15 footers.
