Rhino Fitting at gate valve Leaks

Hello all!
I use the rhino system and Iíve noticed that when I first pull open the gate valve for my black tank I get some leakage where it connect to trailer, it falls to the ground and this mostly happens right after I pull the valve and thereís more pressure and more flow.
Iíve tried everything to stop it. Has anyone experienced this with the rhino fittings?
Thanks!

Replace your gaskets (O rings). Here's the male and female:

Also available from many other sources.

In the mean time a little vaseline might help, but gasket replacement is the best.

I experienced the same type of thing last trip out. Gaskets were good but it seamed to leak from the hose and fitting. Unlocked and backed off the fitting collar then screwed the hose onto the fitting tighter. Tightened the fitting collar and no more leak.

^^^^^^ This.

O-rings are the obvious but less obvious is the actual connection between fitting and hose. Rhino makes it easy to fix as described above.


Also, for those who might arrive in a site that has weird sewer hookups that don't accept conventional hose fitting/elbows (like WA State Parks along the Coast) the Rhino fittings can easily be removed and the hose then inserted in their non-standard cast iron elbows. Don't have to mess with hose clamp and trying to get fitting back into end of hose.
