the Rhino Flex is only $30.00 as Walmart. I usually check there before I buy something and I have found most items less there including the shipping. '

Hi,

I use a $10 hose from Walmart. I've had one leak in 12 years--and that was because I foolishly used a high pressure water supply to try to rinse it. mea culpa.

I would love to have one that remained totally flexible at say -34 c (-30 f).

Rinse the square bumper out once in a while. Grit in there tends to wear pin holes in the sewer hose.

I lay mine in a piece of plastic gutter I carry when on the ground. When you dump and it squiggles around it's like putting a sander on it.

FWIW, we purchased the cheapest sewer hose out there and it's on it's fourth year with no problems. We don't leave ours hooked up, it gets put away after each dump.

Keep the hose. If that's the only time you overspend while RVing, you'll be in the minority. On the other hand, become familiar with Tweety's, Eastern Marine, etrailer and some of the other on line suppliers. Use the forums to develop what you want and need and then go out on the net and find it. Personally I only use camping world for service on the road and parts if I need to just walk in and get something, but that's just me.

I doubt it but I'll find another place to put it and keep the oem one in the bumper.

Very true, and they'll last a long time if you don't drag them on the ground.

We carry ours in Rubbermaid bin with all the other sewer stuff in the bed of the PU. Sliding it in and out of the bumper tends to wear out the hose and rust out the inside of the bumper.

I have the Rhino from Walmart. At 1 CG the sewer hole was far enough I had to go get another section. I keep all the sewer stuff in a rubbermate tote from Walmart too.
