Will say that until we retire I'll stick with the rhinoflex, but once we go fulltime, one of my first purchase's will be the polychute.

I would think that depending on where I park how close etc, the amount of pipe and the configuration would change, and that could take a lot of different size pipe and fitting, has anyone done this and if so can you provide me with better detail and how you use it and how many fitting and sizes of pipe you carry. Also after camping where do you store it, and doe it create a problem with order?

I have yet to go on my maiden voyage, but I hope to figure this out beforehand.

Try Polychute,

You won't buy another one in a very long time.

Smile Sewer hose

Wow! I had no idea there was that many hoses out there. I watched the "Polychute" video and looked at the info. No doubt, it has a great design and will last a long time. The smooth interior is also a definite plus. I have to give it serious consideration. Otherwise, I'm gonna be a "Rino Hose" owner.

Thanks a bunch for all the info and advice.

Traps90,

You could wait 'till you start full timing but by then prices will likely be higher and you will have had to put up with the Rhino in the mean time. Just my two cents...

Here is my experience. I used to have problems with cheap hoses springing leaks too. Then I bought the super heavy duty (thicker plastic) hose and I bought the Slunky to hold it off the ground. I have used the same hose for 4 years of fulltiming now. No leaks yet. I also spend the winters in Arizona so it gets a fair amount of sun. The hose has discolored but still works just fine. Also, I don't really have a problem with "stuff" getting caught in the folds of the hose. The water seems to flush it out just fine. It seems to me that this argument is just looking for a problem.

Have you read the reviews at C/W, seems the fittings are very touchy?

I looked at the Poly chute site and the RV connection seems to be some kind of a ring device. Looks like it may still use the tips on the sewer outlet.I wonder also if there is a provision foe a clear fitting at the inlet end ? The outlet end is a doughnut that just presses into the park sewer .. A threaded adapter like thetford's would be nice

Some locals require a threaded fitting. I don't remember which campground it was, however the host emphasized a threaded fitting was required.

Well, I did it! I ordered a Polychute sewer hose and await it's arrival. I appreciate all of the information and looked at most of them.

The clincher was when my wife said " Wow, that's a great color".

I also liked Harley's comments. Although, I may spend a lot of sleepless nights guarding it and will have to take it with me if we go somewhere in the TOAD. It does have it's own box you know.

Have never ran into a CG that made threaded fittings mandatory tho don't doubt that they are out there. Most require rubber donuts tho. I have used sections of pvc house gutter for serveral years. just overlap sections for length needed to hose you sewer hose. Gives correct angle for flow/prevents punching of hose and if it does happen to leak will drain down to catch basin until can be repaired. Just snap bungee cords around gutter/hose to hold in place

Would do that but we had the Rhino system bought before Polychute came out. For us at this time it works great. Especially cause it fits in the sewar hose holder on our 5'er without removing the end caps,

Since we fulltime, I don't expect any hose to last very long. WalMart solves the problem with affordable hoses. We use one by Camco, the heavy duty version. Every six months, I throw it away and buy new. I always keep one with connectors on stored in a pvc tube stowed in a compartment for short weekend trips so I don't have to mess with the one we use on a regular basis.

Another vote for Polychute/Drainmaster

I just converted to Drainmaster and the cam-loc attachment system. The hose and nozzle are the same as the Polychute, but the connector at the coach end is similar to that used in marine pump out applications. I was having trouble with arthritic hands, particularly in the cold, when it came time to remove bayonet connections. This solves that problem very well and the system seems bullet proof so far.

Modification of the existing outlet at the coach was required, but very simple. Remove the bayonet pins, sand smooth, glue on new fitting. Fifteen minutes, tops.

I had been using the Valterra hoses and fittings from CW and found them sturdy and had no leaks. Just changed to have it more manageable with these old hands.

If you are having any difficulty with the hook up process give the Drainmaster product a look.
