My Rhino hose ends screw on, possibly left handed threads?

If you haven't already done so, loosen the black locking ring on the orange coupling then feed it on to the hose (left handed threads, I think), then run the locking ring tight onto the orange coupling

I have nothing of value to add about the hose issue, but wanted to welcome you to iRV2! Hope you get it fixed up ASAP.

It screws in with a reverse thread. Try cleaning up the end (by trimming not with clorox) then screw it in to the Left.. Good Luck

You have to extend a couple of inches to be able to screw the end on. It won't screw on while the hose is collapsed

Trying to screw the hose on when it is dry (not water wet) is very difficult. As stated it may be a reverse thread. You can look at the inside of the fitting and the hose itself and determine which way to turn it.

I struggled for about 20 minutes one day, then the light bulb came on. VASELINE: lube the inside of the fitting with Vaseline and it will tighten right up. If there is a break in the first inch or so of the tubing, use some cutting pliers, or even the inside jaw of a pair of regular pliers and cut the metal winding behind the break. Trim the vinyl with scissors.

Happy trails.

It is what it is, and then it is what you make of it.

Buy a new one!!!! IMHO, once a sewer hose fails, it is time to trash it and purchase a new one.

Not true in this case, sounds like he just spun the end off. No need to replace simply spin it back on the tighten the locking ring.

It will be interesting to find out but since the OP has not posted in almost 5 days , I suspect he bought a new one :-)

I take the one end off every time I put it back in my carrier. The end with the LB will not fit in the tube.
