I also have the Rhino, seems to be a good hose. For my trailer, the sewer outlet is too low for a 90 to be practical, so I use a 45. As others have recommended, have some extra sewer hose on hand just in case. I have the standard 15 footer and a 10 foot extension.

I agree with everyone else, I have both, frosted not clear... All depends on the hookup.

The seal was in place but it still leaked. Mine is a clear 45 deg. bend, not opaque like in your picture. I'll have to check it again when we get the TT out in the Spring. The Rhino hoses are good quality so I was very disappointed that their fitting leaked.

I posted that for the seal IMG.

I am sure it is a bother when things do not work like they should, I hope it is fixable.

Did the seal at the connection leak or the fitting that connects the the hose to the coupling? I had a Rhino hose leak at the hose connection. What I found was that the locking ring was tight, but the hose was not screwed up into the Rhino coupling before the locking ring was tightened, after doing that it no longer leaked. I checked both hoses and found that each one was able to be tightened further into the coupling.

I don't recall exactly. I got the fitting in 2014 and didn't use it at all in 2015. I did figure out this year how the hose and end couplers connect together on the Rhino hoses so I'll have to take them apart to make sure the hose is on fully. Thanks for the tip.

We have a 45 like the one that home brew posted and use it for our 27rlws. You can point it down or toward the back if the sewer connection on the lot is toward the back. A 45 would point it toward the ground and be to low to turn out.
