Length of Sewer Pipe and Water Line

I have a 2018 28DBUD. My question is...are the items provided in the starter kit that came with the camper (sewer and water hookups) of adequate length? What is a good length so as to not have connection issues? Also, I assume I will also have to get a length of coax cable. What is a good length for that as well? New to this activity do any help is greatly appreciated. We will go for an overnight dry run close to the house before going out for real.

Here is my count. We've never come close to being short:

30' power cord + 25' extension 30 amp cord
10' sewer hose x 2
25' water hose x 2
25' black water flush hose
50' coax cable - building an additional HD antenna in the near future.

Realistically, I could easily leave some of it at home; however, it doesn't weigh much and doesn't take up much space in the front compartment.

What is the difference between sewer hose and black water hose? I thought there was only one hose that connects to gray and black outlet, then you open the gray or black valve to empty each.

The sewer hose drains both the black and grey tank. The black tank flush hose rinses clean water through the black tank and out the sewer hose.

It will look just like the city water hook up but say "black tank flush". It will look like a garden hose fitting.

Depends on your camper and where your camping.
When we keep ours on a seasonal site in Ohio
30’ power cord only 5’ needed 50 amp
10’ sewer hose x2 Only 4’ needed
20’ water hose ok
40’ Black flush hose used to wash camper too ok
25’ coax ok
We then wintered in Florida
30’ power cord a little short had to jockey trailer to reach ( need to get extension cord just in case)
10’ sewer hose x2 had to get another 10’ ( now carry 30’)
20’ water hose had to add 15’ ( now carry 20’x2)
40’ Black flush hose ok
25’ coax ok (now carry 50’)

The additions I would make is one more 10 foot section of sewer hose with a 45 degree clear elbow and a water pressure regulator.
BTW welcome from Kentucky (and Florida this time of the year).
Go camping and have some fun.
Travel safe

Any idea if my trailer has black water flush connection? I dont recall them showing us that. How do I use it if I have one. I drain black water first. Then drain the built up gray i store to flush the line. Then what?

BTW, thanks for all of your responses!!

It is not a sewer hose. It is a freshwater sewer tank rinse hose.
