Thanks all! I went with the 15. I've watched some youtube vids and saw how rigid it stays and holds it's shape when formed. I was worried about sagging with a longer hose but apparently that is not an issue. Have to swap it in this weekend. Hope it's not too messy. Ewww..

Actually sag can be an issue and we carry one of these because storage and weight is an issue for us.

Yes ,My Old Ky Home ,Cherry Hill MD,and Shippshe,North,IN require LONG Feed for SEWER,WATER,and POWER! Just depends what Site you get! Youroo!!

PVC pipe doesn't sag either.

Just saying...

A 10 foot hose may actually get you to 10 feet as functional length if you really stretch it. I would recommend that you use some good high quality BLACK zip ties on the connectors before using it. I carry thirty feet. Usually I will only use 20, but have been in situations where the thirty was needed.
BTW... there are no dumb questions here... just some that are repetitive.

Since you are on a seasonal site you should use pvc. One of the benefits is you never have to disconnect it for storage in the off season.

My TT is on a seasonal site, 12" horizontal pvc to a clear 45* connected to another 45* then 8" down to the septic. It's been in place for 5 years and removed once to use the tote for gray water during a week long stay with 5 in the trailer.
