I agree with the "he spun the end off" have done it a few times myself.

However the advice to buy a new one... Under the auspusices of MURPHY's LAW.

The best way to insure something will NEVER fail......

have a spare.

I bought a new Rhino setup today. Someone ran over or stomped the one I was using. I'd thought I'd just cut out the bad part and put in a connector but ended up buying a new one. Wasn't much price difference so now have a nice new clean hose and connectors. The new on comes with a label instructing you to loosen the black lock ring and to tighten the fitting on the hose then re tighten the black lock ring before you use it. The lock ring is marked tighten with an arrow and loosen with an arrow in the other direction. Doesn't take a lot of thought to figure it out.

Rhino started small leak at junction attached to mh after about a year. So decided to get a new one, hate crappy leaks. When in CW saw a spare gasket kit for the hose for maybe $4.00. Decided I'd give it a try. No more leak, more money in pocket.😄

They just started providing the gaskets last year at dealers. Prior to that you had to call the company and they would send you a gasket. Nice thing about that was it was free. Now it's $4 for two

I have stepped on a Rhino Flex and it didn't have any adverse affect on it. Just a little indention when I lifted my foot.

Just don't forget the VASELINE when you try to screw a connector back on. It simplifies the process considerably.

I don't think that will work with the hard plastic dump end - the 'screw' part fits inside.... thanks though!

Humm, I did spin it back on the ring, but can't figure out how to attach that end to the hard plastic dump end....
