Then get a 50 foot or two twenty five foot fresh water hose/s they are white.

Buy an ordinary 50 foot garden hose, use this for other than water that goes into the trailer.

Give thought to a heavy duty 110/120/115 extension cord in the 50 -75 foot range.

The Wally world mat will do just fine ours is 9X12 foot.
what is the 50 ft garden hose for? just curious. Would I need the fresh water hose if we don't plan on drinking the water in the storage tanks? We plan on only using that water for showers, dishes, etc.

Would you want to wash out your stinky slinky with the same hose you will use to run water over your head?
Cross contamination/back flow happens SO easy it's freakin weird.

Does the tt come with a sewer hose or is the Rhino that much better? I've seen comments about it before but wasn't sure.

Mine came with the el cheapo blue thing which is still in the bag, I will use it as a backup or give it to someone who needs it more than I.

Wally's has Rhino and another brand who's name escape's me now, but both of these are much thicker and better built with swivel ends.

Be sure to pick up a 5 or 6 inch high X what ever you think will fit plastic tote to store the Rhino in.

I do not know how big your bumper is but the rhino would not fit mine because the ends are to big, the dealer told me before I left I would likely loose the end caps off the bumper well he was right so I screwed them on.

So storage in the bumper is not what I have, over the years I have seen a lot of the cheap blue hoses on the side of the road that may or may not have come out of a bumper.

If you do not want a tote then perhaps this.

Different walmart's have different selections depending if there is a lot of camping in the area. Overall Walmart and amazon are usually cheaper then dealers or camping world. Rhino sewer hose is awesome and so are lynx leveling (orange blocks). I also like the orange tank cleaner walmart carries they have drop ins, small, bottles and gallon bottles. A good patty-o mat is also very useful but bigger is not always better, I bought biggest and wish I bought 2 smaller ones. After going through a few cheap water hose invested in a lifetime one from dealer and it was 1/3 more expensive but it's been replaced twice so now I'm saving.

Forgive me for asking but why is it you go thru so many water hoses?

Not sure but if you inspect the white Rv hoses you will see some big differences in quality some are more rigid or flimsy normally after a year or two the would leak were the crimp connection is on the end of the hose. Not sure if it was the exposure to so much sun or storing them in the camper over winter but I always drain them before I put them away. I only do a loose wrap when putting them away also about the size of a paper plate.
