You could also move your rig closer to the sewer tap.

I have used the Sewer Solution now for 10 years. Very satisfied with this simple solution to dumping the tanks. I use a 15’ flexible 1” diameter hose with 30 feet of 1” pvc in 5’ lengths with slip joint couplings in lengths. If I need a long run I just slip the needed pieces together with a piece of duct tape to make sure they don’t disconnect. Never any leakages and can discharge up to 3’+ uphill in a 30’ + run. Makes a nicer cleaner work then the stinky slinky.

I've got 2 of the 20 foot kits. Most of the time I only need a 10 foot section, but I've had to use 30 feet of hose twice so far.

I have the 15 foot and the 20 foot kit. I have had to use all 35 feet in a couple of sites. Lets me make ou connection of 10, 15, 20, 25, and 35 feet. Have had the RhinoFlex hoses for 4 years and very satisfied with them.

Up until last weekend at a dog show in Louisville a 15' slinky hose has been all I've needed. We were one of thousands of RVs and had a dedicated spot but the sewer was a good 30' away. Moving was not a option as every single spot was reserved with trailers inbound from all over the country and arriving by the minute.

I went to the local Walmart and bought four 10' sections and now have them when ever I need them again. They each came with clamp on caps for when not in use and a 90° elbow for the sewer connection not that I need three of those.

In the end we can all recommend this length or that but there will be a time when it won't work [emoticon]

Two 10 ft work 99% of the time though we have had longer runs to contend with so we carry extra two 10fters but they're still in the box.

[emoticon] Hi, I bought the Dominator sewer hose kit with two 10' hoses. While driveway camping at a friends house, I needed 45' of hose. So I bought three more 10' hoses. At 95% of the camp grounds, all I need is one 10' hose. I like the Dominator hoses because they collapse down to 3' each.

I use two 10 foot sections but I also carry two more 10 foot sections that are still in the box. I also carry a extra 50 foot of the white water hose.

Depending on where I park I've used the hose that came with the RIG (about 10' as I recall) a 5 foot extension hose. 10-15-20 and currently 25 foot. The 25 Foot is a "Sentinel" by I think Tetford and frankly I like it better than I Did the Rhino flex jobs it replaced.


Home is where I park it.

Should I also invest in a sewer support? I was also thinking of buying the 30 ft Sidewinder hose support. It seems like it would work at almost any length up to 30 ft...yes?
