Viper, Dominator, or what?

My "rhino" hose I was forced to 'purchase' when picking up the new TT has developed pin hole leaks after two uses. So it ain't much "Rhino".....

Need one with permanent fittings, and easy to snap together, and easy to put 90 degree clear end on (I have that already).

What is the difference in Valterra Dominator or Viper? Why are there two? Is one sturdier? Thicker? What?

Thanks.......

I also had the Rhino and replaced it with the Viper. I believe the Viper is more puncture resistant than the dominator. Much happier now that I tossed the Rhino

I wonder if you didn't just get a bad one. I don't have the Rhino, but I've had one of those Camco Revolution hose sets from wally world that's held up very well for two years now. Tight enough that when I collapse them and put the caps on they hold vacuum for months.

Thanks. IF I get the 20' Viper (two ten foot sections) and a 15' Viper.....will they come with ends already permanently attached, and will they clamp together easily????

Some love them, so I do suppose I got a bad one.

But.........I have a bad one.......it has holes.

Hey Band, I went with the Viper 20' (2x10'ers). Felt way more flexible and durable. I use them with a "Y" connection as I have two gray tanks. So far I have not needed a third section. No they don't have end caps, but I did purchase enough to seal all ends when not in use. Also, I use a clear connector to aid in total dumping. Hope this helps
