Sewer Hose

I just bought a replacement hose (without fittings) off Amazon for my Rhino system for $14.00.

I only find one link for a replacement without fittings. No price shown and they're "currently unavailable".

Seriously? Repair a plastic sewer hose? I don't think so.

I always keep three on hand... one in use, one as an add-on, and one spare. Twice I've assisted nearby campers in difficulty by "lending" them my spare. When return time comes, I always defer (for obvious reasons). If they offer to pay me, ok. If not, ok. IMO, sewer hoses are fragile consumables that are purchased and trashed on a regular basis. There are far more important things to repair.

As cheap as those hoses are I would just replace it. Not much in messing with the sewer any more than I have to. For a good motor home sewer training film watch the movie RV with Robin Williams. It has a lot of good pointers on traveling in a motor home.

Replace it with a macerator pump and you will be a lot happier

IN demonstrations they cut the hose and screw the two cut ends together, I've found GOOP will stick to a clean and dry surface and work well on the Rino Flex.. However I got tired of repairing the Rino Flex so am trying a different hose now.. It is too soon to recommend it though.

I agree they are not worth repairing.

i've been using one of thess kits: Amazon.com: Prest-O-Fit (1-0202) Blueline Quick Connector Sewer Kit: Automotive, for 14 years, (whenever I have a sewer connection)..... no rips/tears/pinholes.

And I use a 8' length of "cheap light weight" sewer hose at most dump stations, (which, BTW, I've had to replace 3-4 times).
