Sewer Hoses

The Camco Rhino seems to be the favorite or most popular ! I purchased the 27RLWS TT. I'd like a clear elbow so that I can monitor my tank when dumping. Would you suggest the 45 degree or 90 degree elbow?

Thanks

I have one of each, the one I use depends on the location of the hole from the FW when parked.

If your using the elbow where it comes off the RV I believe a 45 would be best. Less resistance to the flow. If you want it just before it enters the sewer I would also go with a 45 on its side before it goes into the 90 going into the sewer. I'd lay on its side to keep the fluid from having to go uphill as much as possible before entering the sewer I hope that makes since. I've tried it both ways and have settled on the first option.

Agree with others have both 45 and 90, also have a straight. Have never had to use the 90.

Yes the Rhino is well worth the money, very durable, plus folds down to a nice manageable size to store. You may want to invest in 1 or 2 5ft extension pieces as well. Have only needed them a couple times but some campsites have the sewer drain set far enough back making the regular 15 ft just a tad short.

I have a straight and a 45 deg. I prefer the 45 deg. fitting (it's a Rhino fitting) but it leaked the first time I used it so I haven't used it since. I wouldn't bother with a 90 deg. bend. Always use it at the RV tank outlet, not at the other end.

Could the rubber seal be missing or not in place correctly?
