I can't decide between buying the 15 and the 20' RhinoFlex RV sewer hose kit. The 15'er is one piece and 20'er is made up of 2 10' hoses. My trailers waste hook-up is right about in the middle of the trailer, just in front the slide. I'm thinking that I should order an extension but I don't know how long?

I also considered the RhinoExtreme hose thinking that it would be better and possibly, but it got odd reviews on amazon. It got 4 stars, but for some reason 19% of the reviews only gave it 1 star and I thought that to be very high. I also wasn't sure if I could fit the 20' hose into the bumper.

You will at some point be at a site that you will be just a few feet short no matter how much hose you carry. So I would buy both the 2 tens and the 15.

I agree. Some days I need 5’ and other days I need 40’. There’s no standard or consistency!

In my experience (still relatively newby-ish) I've found the hookups to be near my rear trailer bumper. To dump the kitchen required one 10 foot hose. To dump the black water required 2 10 foot hoses.


There is something special about camping in an RV.

Most sewer openings in parks with full hook-ups are within about 6' of your sewer connection. A shorter hose, maybe about 8', is best. If your hose is too long it is much more difficult to use and rinse out. Carry a longer extension for unusual circumstances.

I have used the same Rhino hose for 8 years, and it’s still going strong. It is the 15’ version, and only once thought it wasn’t going to be long enough. I had to back up the trailer almost off the site for it to reach. I do plan to get an extension.

We carry a 10ft. and a 20ft. and a connecting coupler to put them together if needed. Generally, the 10 ft. gets the most usage.

Pretty simple math. The two 10 footers will reach further.

With never knowing what you may encounter at various RV parks.....”bigger is better”! We have even had to run a hose beneath the trailer to the passenger side to a dump....requiring quite a bit of hose. I “overkill” everything, I’ve got two sections...30 or 40 feet total!
