Sewer Questions

Hello All, did a search on sewer hoses within the forum, pulled up several from 2013/14; my questions are not for storage, have good ideas from those posts, but is 15 feet long enough and do we need the ability to turn 45-90 degrees; I bought a Camco Rhino EXTREME RV Sewer Hose Kit, 1, from Wal-Mart

thanks

This is starting our third year with a camper so my word should not be taken as the gospel. We have the same hose and so far the single 15' length has been fine for us and where we camp. I am not sure I understand your question about turning. I think you do need the stinky slinky to have the 90 degree on the sewer dump end. And Happy Birthday BigDuke, you type well being 240 years old.

That's exactly what I've been using for the last 6 years and have found it to be more than adequate. I've never needed more than 15' but there certainly could be a site where you could. I use the 90 degree everywhere.

I got a 15 foot Rhino "kit" and a 10 foot extension at Walmart the 10 foot hose is still in the box unused.

Some here have said there are places where twice that footage is needed, these places I hope to avoid.

Had a pull thru site last week in Maine where the sewer hookup was at the edge of the road. Stretched close to 20' to make the connection. As a last resort had another 10' Complimentary hose from dealer.

Just this weekend I found 20' Rhino was not enough. Went to town and bought another 20 ft, thinking I had the right connector for the two! Wrongo! Ended up holding off till we left today, and backed the TT up the last 3' I need to do the onsite dump. Now to find the connector and I wont get caught again (and probably will never need it either - Murphy's Law!). Also need to invest in (or make) the declining hose supports. Having DW and me take turns raising sections of hose towards the pit was not pleasant.

I have recently bought another fifteen footer. Locally there is an RV park near me called Dockweiller RV Park on the beach For reasons unknown to me the hook ups are near the street side of the sites. The first time I stayed there I could not hook up my sewer as fifteen feet was no where near long enough. Luckily we were only there for the weekend.

We had the exact same issue there. For the life of me, I can't figure why they set it up that way. We found a Walmart somewhat close and they didn't have what we needed. Ended up hooking the "gray" hose used for cleaning the sewer hose to the sewer hose using an adaptor so as to not fill the gray tank. When we left we pulled the tt forward and dumped the black. Nice place though. Jerry

I have a 15' hose and a extension hose. I've never used the extension hose is 12 yrs of RVing. A few times the 15' hose has been stretched out fairly tight, could have played base on it a time or 2. So for the cost a extension hose might just be worth it just in case eh.

In my experience a single 15 foot hose is enough 95% of the time. The one you got is a good choice that should work well. You might want to get a 10 foot extension for those rare campsites AND to gave a backup.
