What brand dump hose does everyone use

Our trailer is one year old and we just returned from our first trip of the season. I am still using the cheap dump hoses that the dealer included with the trailer. 2 10 foot sections connected with a connection.

Our site this trip had the dump values slightly lower than the site's dump connection. I quickly discovered that my hoses leak at all the connection points.

What brand hose do you use and what length do you keep on hand. Seems that I always need more than 10 feet.

Thanks

Based on how cheap the one I got from the dealer looked I'm surprised you got a year use out of it.

I upgraded to RhinoFlex (15") a year & half ago and recently brought a 5" extension hose that attaches to the 15" hose. The extension piece wasn't much cheaper than the original kit.

There are several types of RhinoFlex hoses to select from. I got mine at WalMart but Camping World sells it too.

Depending on where you camp will determine how much hose you should be carrying. I've never needed more than the original 15" but at once CG I only have a couple inches to spare so I picked up the extension piece just in case I need it.

One of my beach cg here is getting full hookups in selected sites but they placed the hookups closer to front of the site (where the TV usually goes) instead of towards the back of the site. I expect I will be needing the extension at that cg. See pic below of hookups location.

After researching on this forum, I bought a RhinoFlex, 15' from WalMart. They did not have the 5' extension there but will pick one up in the future when I see one. I also plan on getting the clear connection clean out section also.

Would not mess with a 5' extension, just get another 15' rhino flex for just a couple of dollars more. It will come in handy I guarantee it if you camp at different parks like we have and do.

I concur - for the xtra few dollars its worth the piece of mind not to be 7 or 8 inches short but to have a few feet to the good. Especially with not having to move the trailer forward or back for that distance. Also get the sloped stands for a better gravity run off.
