Sewer hose seems too long

We camped in our TT for the first time. When emptying the tanks at the dump station, the sewer hose seemed way too long. It is a Rhino brand and was purchased by the previous owners. I'm not sure how long it is. Is it a good idea to have a long hose or is it normally not necessary? I don't know whether to buy a shorter one or find some way to shorten the one I have.

At a dump station it may seem long. You are right at the drain. Stayed at a State park and twenty feet was not enough. Needed two more feet. If you only have one section you may want to get another, just in case. Better to have it than to need it.

You'll probably be saying it is way too short when you have full hookups...... We are currently carrying 35 feet of hose.

I now have four sewer hoses of various lengths and durability. I tend to use the Rhino extreme sewer hose the most as it has two connections of hose assemblies 10 ft. each. Than I have another brand of two hoses that can be connected to each other and stretched to 40 ft. along with the new low cost hose that the dealer throw in with the sale; still in the bag. I also have various connectors for the full hookup dump pipe to fit the different sewer hoses that I have. I also have two different clear drain connections one is straight the other is a 45 deg angle connection.


When it comes to sewer hoses it seems that you may never have enough at some point in time.

I'm carrying 30 feet of hose myself. When I am going to end up right next to the dump station I will pull a few feet before or after the dump to ease hose management.

It's something you get used to.

I carry three ten foot hoses and couplers. Over time you will use them all in various combinations. It is also good to have a way to keep a constant slope to the drain. I use sections of plastic gutter and blocks.

I carry 30 feet and a 45 clear coupler of good quality sewer hose. Have had an occasion twice that needed longer than 20 feet. Carry the cheaply that came with the tv for dump station, it compresses to 3 feet or so. In addition carry 50 feet of white water hose and 50 feet of grey hose and a y connector for the supply valve. Always lay out grey hose for grandkids and the campfire in case of an emergency! Otherwise I use grey hose for black tank flush.

DON'T cut it! You don't say how long it is extended but, eventually, you will need a long hose. Buy a shorter hose that will couple with the current hose.
