I guess we are the exception. We carry a 10ft and two 15ft hoses, and a home made shorty for dumping at a dump station. ThE shorty is handy when staying at a site that has only a dump station at the exit. I can pull up to the dump hole and align the drain pipe close the shorty is easier as I don't need to fill and clean all 10 ft of hose. All are set up so they may be daisy chained. We do a lot of safari type camping where we often face our friends in adjacent camp sites (awning to awning) or in large circles. That is usually is when we need the extra lengths because we have pulled in the site backwards.

The extra hoses are stored in fence posts mounted above the propane tank so they don't take up valuable bin space and are never in contact with any of the other stored items.

Without a doubt, a Rhinoflex hose is the best out there for the price. Last year at Goshen, we won a WasteMaster sewer hose (Lippert Components) which is, IMHO vastly superior to the bayonet connection sewer hoses (the WasteMaster is a cam lock) It has the ability to turn 90 degrees and a added benefit of having the wire supports on the outside (thus the inside of the hose is smooth and will not catch solids)

While we don't have near as much experience as some 'round here - it's not our first weekend out, either...

15' was fine for us, until last weekend - very large pull through site at a private park... Ended up using a 20' extension with the 15' Rhino, to reach. Extension is just a cheapie; and since this is the first time it's come out, I guess that's good enough.

At Goshen, it's not uncommon to need 30-35' to reach. That said, I have (2) 15' and (2)10' sections. I also like the clear 45 degree elbows and use a "wye" connector when both drains are connected.
