I know that mine is the one I bought in 2002 - cause that's the first year I needed one, and I haven't bought another. It's just whatever cheap thing they had at the RV dealer.

This is now on the must have list!!

I'd try Eternabond. I've repaired a pair of my daughter's rubber boots and a pair of hip waders, besides making my roof leak-proof.


The tape is worth more than the hose


I didn't say to use a roll of it on wrapping the hose. It takes less than a 1/2 inch square to patch a pin hole. Plumbers Goop is good too. Eternabond and goop take time to dry.

One note you might check the inside of the bumper storage area. I found a number of metal burrs that were knocking hole in the hose as I put it in or pulled it out.


Just a bit of humor. Don’t take it literally! Once a hose develops a pin hole or leak IMO it is worth less than that tiny piece of eternabond wrapped around it. Have at it, but I have better things to do than fix sewer hose that is ready for the garbage. In the event a pin hole appears duct tape will hold until replaced or a back up is used. Investing time with goop or eternabond IMO is pointless on a sewer hose.

Good point an watching where you stick that thang. Friction will kill your hose.

To the OP; glad they are standing behind it.

I think there might be some exaggeration going on about the stream of poop water. The hose might leak, but it isn't going to shoot a stream at you. There is no pressure on the hose unless you dump uphill.

Okay, want a good laugh. I recently had my 5er serviced and they checked tanks etc. to be sure all was okay. Well, I went camping and at the dump station, as I was taking the cover off the dump tubing I got it all over with you know what. Evidently, the dealer checked the slider rod to the tanks but did not bother to be sure the tank was empty. Well, I found out that they did check, but did not empty.

I'll trade a pin hole leak any day from a full scale assault.

From Wd40.com:
•As The Duct Tape Guys say, “You only need two tools in life, Duct Tape® and WD-40. If it’s not stuck and it’s supposed to be, Duct Tape it. If it’s stuck and it’s not supposed to be, WD-40 it.”

When I have had a hose failure it was easier at the time to slap a piece of duct tape on it that drive many miles into town to try to locate another. I am talking emergency repair unless you have one of those Y-connectors like they used in the movie "RV" to splice in where the hole was.

Why are you guys even wasting a piece of valuable duct tape on a pin hole?
You got two thumbs don't you? Just use one of them to cover the leak until you're done dumping.

Yeh! Didn't some boy plug a dam with his finger to stop his town from flooding? Just remember where your finger was last.

I found that the small gravel at campsites were putting small holes in my hose. It laying on ground and vibration/weight when I dumped would pinch a hole. Trip to lowes purchased a 4 inch lightweight waste pipe white had them cut it down the middle and in half. This pipe stores inside itself and you can cut it to any length you need to store it but the sewer hose sets in in just fine. No more gravel hole in the last couple years. Worked for me just may work for you and is cheap. Larry

Jeez.. What are you putting down the hose, nuclear waste!

I don't even remember what brand my hose is, but it's the same one I bought back in 2002 and it's stored in the bumper and only comes out to dump... No leaks or pin holes of any kind.

I think I got it from Walmart as a matter of fact?

Now, I don't hookup the sewer hose the moment I get into camp and leave it hooked up the whole time... I only hook it up when I need to dump, which is when we are packing up to leave after a 4 day weekend.

It could be that having it out the whole time takes it's toll?? But, after only 3 trips??

Anyway, I wish you luck in your pursuit of another hose that will last longer than 3 trips!


Mitch

Sounds like mine, since I bought it in 04 from Walmart. Looks like he11 but it don't leak, was one of the extra heavy duty kind
