I need to buy a sewer hose support and I'm looking at the sidewinder. I see that it comes in 10', 15', 20 and 30' and I'm debating what length to buy. I was toying with buying the longer 30' sidewinder. I'm thinking that if I need only 10' of hose support that I'd only pull out 10, 20' or whatever is needed up to 30'. The longer 30' support is $42 and 20' is $28. So neither of them is outrageously expensive. Should I go with the longer one?

Does that sound logical or am I asking for trouble?

Lastly, I'm also purchasing a 20' Rhino sewer hose and a 10' extension.

I really think that the 30 FT would be overkill,you can't really just take part of it out you can fold some back to just use what you need at the time.

With the 15 or 20 you will have all you will need. I have the 15 FT and carry a 15 ft and a 5 ft extension Rhino Hose and as of yet I haven't needed any more than that.

Well I'm using 25' right now. Check out the Tetford Sentinel hose. I am now using one and really like it.. Rhino is what I used to use.

Now: Why support the hose
I have been in a few campgrounds all of which were in the same county where I was advised the LAW (County ordanance) Required a smooth slope to the park sewer inlet.. NO dips. must support hose... Ok no problem have a Slunky.

Fred (RV-101 by Fred) says to use a support to insure the full hose is not dancing around on gravel (THus poking holes in yoru expensive stinky slinky) Makes sense to me too.

I would say it really is a matter of what you want to spend and are comfortable in having available. I have had to use 25' of hose before and am glad I had the support available. If you only need 20' , great but if you needed 22' you have a problem. I also like the longer one for those times the connection was a little high and going all the way out would have left the end low; having the extra length kept it high enough.

I carry 4 eight foot pvc sewer pipe halves (8ft of 4 inch pipe cut in half to make two troughs). They nest in each other and can telescope out to 32 ft or any length down to the one 8 fter. I use a few bungee cords to hold them up along the side and at the joints. If I am only using two of the sections I place the other two on top to keep birds from pecking the hose.

I've got a Sidewinder 30 ft and split it into 3 pieces. I can use some or all and depending on the ground contour I can use the shorter or taller segments if I don't need the whole thing. Splitting it up just gives me more options. I hold the individual segments together with a strap and snap bayonet fitting for storage in the basement.

You can spend all sorts of money on the fancy ones or you can do as posted above. I purchased a 10 ft section of plastic rain gutter. I cut it into a 4 and 6 foot section and use this. If I needed more I would buy another 10 footer and not cut it. I think mine cost less than $3 at a second hand store. I store it in the back of the truck and haven't had any trouble.

Make sure the hose sections are screwed in to the fitting properly before first use. Don't ask how I know.

I like the idea of splitting the 30' sidewinder into different sizes. I'll make a 20' and a 10' to match my hoses.

Thanks!
