I live near Cochise County Arizona and a threaded poop chute connection is required by law in that county. Since that is the case, I always use the threaded connection ... who would know what the local law requires when on the road?

I wrote Mike at Polychute asking about the threaded connection. It is not available from Polychute. Here is what he wrote back.

I'm still tickled turquoise with my Polychute!

Hi Harley,

Thanks for the kind words about my product. The adapter doughnut on your nozzle is designed to fit snuggly into both 3" & 4" threaded pipe openings.
If you ever have a campground owner that doubts the air tight fit without the use of threads, please call me.

Thank You
Mike Ingram

Do you REALLY care what the law says. They also say that the hose can not touch the ground. WOW that will sure help something.

I only put the hose out to dump. Then put it away until I need to dump again. Problem Solved !

I have a Rhino Flex that's abut 5-6 years old and looking to be replaced fairly soon.

I had a Camco "Self Storing" hose (This comes in a tube and the well, I do not plan on describing it) that failed at 5 1/2 years

The "el-cheapo" that came with the motor home when it was new (Part of my starter pack) is still good,,, But in fairness it hardly ever comes out of the storage pipe it's stored in.

Drain Master is now a member of these forums.. I'd talk to them. They make one very superior hose

You are better off with two shorter hoses with a stable connector than one long hose. I have 2 10 ft ones and almost always get by with one. Why fight a long hose when a short one will work? Same thing goes with water hoses.

That's the secret. All hoses will deteriorate (some more than others) when sitting in the sunlight. Putting it away also protects it from the campground workers with lawn mowers and weed eaters, also.

I bought a Polychute late last fall in preparation for our December trip to Florida. DW calls it the "fancy, schmancy sewer hose. I have to say I am very impressed with the construction of it.
Actually, it was my Christmas present to myself. Now, is that just sick or what?
