I have a Rhino Flex we purchased in 2009 and no issues. If it starts to lean any poo water that will be a good indication it is time for replacement

Two years ago I would have said RhinoFlex is the only way to go. That was before we got our Lippert WasteMaster. So many features that make this superior: outside rib support & smooth interior hose make for NO clogs or TP jams; the hose material is very thick - probably 2-3X that of a Rhinoflex; the heavy duty nozzle with sure grip rubber grommet & clear tube +on/off lever. Oh, and the cam-lock connector; never have to worry about a bayonet connection loosening up (or the hose separating from the bayonet connector!)

Best.Sewer.Hose.Period.

(Full disclosure: Yes, I won the $150 system in a essay competition, but it does not change my opinion of the product--proof: I sold our 5er and of course the WasteMaster went with it. I will be buying a new WasteMaster for our MoHo!)

The Rhino is a decent hose for the money and should last quite a while if taken care of.

I'm with Aron-I'Ve used a Sewer Solution on every hardside trailer we've had in the last 17 years. I carry a slinky for "emergencies" and I have never used it. I also don't need any holders, supports, gutters, ski slopes, pigs or adapters. I do carry 3 pieces of 1" PVC in my bumper for those odd locations where we are too far from the sewer opening. It's the smarter way to dump!

What is the advantage of this gizmo? Size? Doesn't the sewer dump faster thru a 4" hose? I learn something everyday.

It requires a water input to help macerate the waste/tissue going through it so you can get by with the supplied hose (much smaller than slinky).

The advantages are that the hose does not have corrugations inside, the setup can be used to pump uphill, and you can use this over long distances with tubing/PVC.

Could I pump it thru a water hose out into the wood? Or a nearby stream or lake?

I agree completely,..... three yrs., three trailers, never used slinky,......at home nearest I can get to my septic tank clean out is 40' and it's 2' higher than were my tanks are sitting on the trailer, Sewer Solution handles that with no problem and without the need for electricity for a little electric pump,....Sewer Solution, "try it, you might like it"......................
