If you've never had a sewer hose mishap you're not a real camper.

My awning lights are stars...


There is something special about camping in an RV.

See post #6 on the first page. With two gray tanks, I do. This campground has all their sewer dumps in the far rear of the sites. Knowing that and with two tanks one in the front third of the trailer I like to be prepared. Something wrong with that? And if you missed it in my first post these were new hoses. New 10' sewer hoses are not 10', they are 7' until they are used a few times. So in reality I had 5 7' hoses for a total length of about 35' which is not unreasonable. Maybe the sewer hose police will understand now.

Just a thought. I have 2 sewer connections as well. I believe it's easier to just move the hose between the 2 outlets as needed vs. setting up multiple hoses at each discharge.
Too much effort to get out 5 hoses and put them away vs. just using 2 hoses.

Since this was our first trip out I may end up doing that. Next time I won't need 5. I'll be closer and these hoses will be stretched but switching may be an option.

I had a hose split once, I think it was just because it was old. Thankfully it was at a camping dump station that had a great design that allowed me to just rinse everything into the dump port. I was kinda grossed out but, I had a friends 14 year old son with me and he just grabbed the rinse hose from the pole and washed it down without any problem or being squeamish.

That kid has a future is fixing broken sewer lines.

Running nationwide I can think of many sites where I need over 35 ft of sewer line. Marin or north San francisco rv park is one, drain is far back and center, this year b4 heading back home to Michigan we stayed for a week, close to ferry and great cycling. Out ATC has a forward mounted drain valve as black and grey are way forward of the axles. Beautiful set up as in use they transfer weight from the rear 100 gallons of water, thus incredibly stable when towing. But, I carry over 50ft of hose in various length segments just in case.

I carry 2 hoses that barely reach from the dump valves to the rear bumper.
