Recommendation for a new sewer hose???

My trailer came with a cheap sewer hose. I am looking to replace it with something better before I have an incident.... I want something that will fit in my bumper. Thanks.

I buy my at Wally World. They need to be replaced every couple years. I always keep an extra new hose in the trailer all the time. They are cheap.

I don't put mine in bumper, so you will have to see if it fits. Very good hose.

Ditto on the cheap one coming with the TT. The one that came with ours has no fitting on the end that goes into the underground dump tank. that's a recipe for an "incident".

The link above shows the one I've marked on eBay and plan to purchase.

We aren't putting ours in the bumper either. I found a perfect sized shallow plastic lidded box (just something I'd acquired because I figured it'd come in handy some day) here at the house and the hose fits perfectly into it. That goes into the under-the-bed, accessible from the outside storage compartment of our V-lite.

A word to the wise .... even tho most trailer bumpers are made to function as sewer hose storage, it is not a good idea. The reason why ? .... sewer hoses are often put away wet or damp . This dampness eventually (and it doesn't take that long !) begins to rust out the bumper interior, causing rough surfaces, which abrades your sewer hose causing small holes in the hose. You can guess what happens after that. There are several other hose storage solutions available, including plastic fence posts, plastic storage tubes, etc etc.

We found that the Rhino flex system is a good aftermarket hose choice.

The rhino flex hose looks good but it doesn't look like elbow that goes into the ground will fit in my bumper?

I wonder if there is any way to prevent bumper rust? Maybe a plastic sleeve that could slide into the bumper? I really don't want to take up the storage room with a sewer hose.

No, the elbow will not fit into the bumper. We have to take ours off every time. Excellent hose, except for this minor inconvenience.
