Just be thankful you haven't had a clogged black tank...lots of water in there is the secret to avoiding that. (We've never had a clog in 5 years, thank Goodness!!)

We started with the cheaper throw in hoses but learned very quickly about spending the money for the thicker better quality hoses and connectors. I remember one time which spurred the purchase of better quality stuff, I must have dragged the hose across some gravel, but when the hose was under pressure, all you could see was about ten little fountains of streaming "Stuff" and would not stop until the pressure was off.
