What kind of sewer hose support is best?

We were looking at different types of sewer hose supports and wondering which works best for most people. My husband liked the aluminum kind at first but then we read some reviews about them not holding up and that they have to kept in a straight line and besides they are expensive. I think the plastic type that you can wind around obstacles looks better. Any advice will be appreciated.

We use the Sidewinder and in most cases it works fine. However, some campsites we have stay at have their sewer connection up about 6" above ground. So the slant for drainage becomes an issue. By the time you get an elbow on the site fitting the hose is running up hill into the elbow. It makes for quite a bit of picking up the hose to get the remaining liquid out.

I use the ground, much cheaper and I don't have to carry one more thing in the rig. I see the sewer hose supports as one of those things that was designed just to get your money but are really not all that important or all that necessary. Never had a problem NOT using a sewer hose support.

Same here Thought I might need one but found out I don't need it.
If you were to leave drain valves open all the time support would be needed but we don;t leave the valves open other than when tanks are full.

Another plastic slunky user. Some places the connection goes *up* from the ground, so it's been good to have.

Same here. I was thinking of buying one and decided to check the forum to see what other thought and came across this thread. Good thing I did, I will wait to see if I need one as well.

I have also always just used the ground as well..!! Dump black tank first, then dump the soapy grey water and the hose is clean enough to handle while rinsing just a bit. NEVER leave the black tank valve open, the pee leaves the tank OK, but the solids just hit the bottom of the tank and stay there. Sorry to be so graphic but I see sooo many people camping with the black valve open thinking they are flushing the commode straight into a pipe as if they were at home. It dont work that way...!!
