We have used 25 ft often. It depends on the layout of your camper & the campground. Our TH is 36 ft & the sewer outlet is in front of the wheels. Our favorite campground has the sewer inlet located at the back so the need for 25 ft. Another newer campground we often go to has two sewer inlets on almost every site so at time I can get away with 5 foot at times. We carry 35 ft but it is rare that we need that much but it does happen.

I have the 20 footer that I use, a new 20 footer still in the box and a 10 footer new in the box, just in case. They are not very heavy and I am prepared. Good Luck

You canít ever have too much hose! You donít have to buy it all at once just pick-up a little at a time.

Last weekend I had 20í of sewer hose, needed 28í so I borrowed and rigged up enough, when I got home I bought 2 10í extensions.

I think I have about 100í of water hose in 4 different hoses, with the primary water and then the flush this has always been enough.

I donít have a 50 amp extension cord Iím a little concerned about the added distance and voltage drop probably paranoid.

Get the extension, the piece of mind is worth the couple bucks it will cost. Same for water and power, sucks to be a foot short.

Ask FT Turbs about short hoses. I think we put 30'-45' together 2 yrs ago at Goshen so several folks could dump.
