Sewer hose?

Gday!
I am tired of low quality sewer hose failure. Who can recommend the BEST brand/model sewer replacement hose available today? I am not brand conscious, I want quality. I want a hose that will stand up to repeated use. TIA

We've been using the RhinoEXTREME hoses and they've held up really well!

The tough plastic coil ("exo-skeleton" as they call it) on the outside of the hose prevents the hose material from scraping on the ground while providing some crush protection. Last year I accidentally drove the truck over a section of the hose and it sprang back to shape. No leaks this year with the same hose!

I switched out my system to WasteMaster as soon as I bought my rig; it reminds me of what professional chemical carriers use. Highly recommend; no regrets. https://store.lci1.com/waste-master-...or-359724.html

High End Hose: LCI Waste Master - but this one requires modification of your waste dump outlet.

The most popular good quality hose is probably the Camco RhinoFlex.

I like the Valterra Dominator. It stays slinkyed up if you don't need the full length.

Where are you seeing the failures, at the coupling or pinholes along the hose? I use one of the Camco plastic angled sewer supports to keep the hose off the ground. I've seen many, many people who just lay them on the ground on rocks and sticks and I wonder if the slight movement of the hose plus the weight of the fluid when dumping causes the sewer hose to wear through against the rocks and stuff.

I have been using the Camco Rhino Flex hose for the last 4 years without any issues. Even the cheap hoses last at least three years for me. But I do not drag them on the ground or let them lay on the ground either. I also use the Camco sewer support to keep the sewer line off of the ground.

When they are put away I do not slide them in a bumper or tube either. I think sliding them over a rough metal edge can damage the sewer line when putting them in the bumper storage tube. When I had my first trailer with a bumper storage for the sewer line, I was replacing sewer lines every year. I store them in a Rubber made tote now.

like a couple have mentioned the waste master is the best . down side is you better have enough for all situations as getting extra lengths or fitting is not something you pick up at the local campground store are most other places . The rhino is what i use and it's not bad maybe 2 yrs per hose before it deteriorates , in full time use . weekenders i'm sure it will last many years

Thank you all for your suggestions. I would like the Wastemaster system most of all, but would have to make sure I had enough extension. Im thinking that I will go for the Camco Rhino Flex for now and watching to see how it goes. My problems were actual tears in the hose. Also, thanks for the thoughts about the bumper storage vs. tote storage.

I, too, looked closely at the Wastemaster and ultimately decided that its uniqueness and need to modify the RV was a non-starter. With standard hoses you can get parts and expertise literally anywhere. That was more important to me, being able to dump the tanks instead of waiting for parts to be delivered.

Been using the same Rinoflex since 2007, bought a 2nd kit 3 years ago to extend (and get the new fangled swivel Fittings) and have the replacement for eventual failure. Still going strong.

I thought long and hard before hacksawing off the twist-lock fitting so I could glue on the Wastemaster fitting. It was worth it!

I've stored my RhinoFlex in my bumper for years without a problem. Just align it with the opening as you slide it in. The end fittings will fit in the bumper. You have to rotate them so the protrusions line up with the corners of the bumper.

I killed my RhinoFlex after only a few months. Have the extreme now, but hate the two 10 ft sections. I think the single 15ft hose length was perfect

Im careful in using my hose and do not generally leave it hooked up at a campsite until I need to dump. Ive had pinhole (and larger!) leaks along the hose, and I have difficulty attaching the sewer elbow to the raw coil end of my current hose.
