walmart dump hose quality

I just had my second dump hose spring a leak. Woman at CW says she's never heard of that. Both hoses were only about two months or so old. I think I got at least one from Walmart. , maybe one from CW. Neither hose was in high sun or heat, not dragged across rocks, put in a briar patch. Point is they were not abused. What's up? Someone said W Mart hoses are not the best quality. Advice please ..

I've had trouble with Wally hoses. It might be just my luck but it seems like the white hoses with chrome fittings are leak prone while the ones with brass fittings aren't.

Oops. After reading your post again I see you were referring to drain hoses. Sorry. I also use the Rhino hoses without any major malfunctions.

Our local WalMart sells 2 types...the cheap one is really cheap.

So, I got the Rhino with the 2 segments and accessories - very high quality.

Better start taking some anti acid tabs, might be some very acidic poop material ruining the slinky. Just some humor here

I use a Camco? from Walmart. 3 years old and no problems. When it goes bad I will go with Rhino Flex, from Walmart.

Walmart sells Camco sewer hoses (and many other Camco brand RV products), so their quality is the same as most other places selling that brand (which is just about every RV dealer and store). Camco markets several quality levels of hose, including the Rhino. Buy the better quality model (thicker, i.e. more "mils") and tyou won't be sorry. Well worth the extra bucks.

Been running the Rhino Flex for several years in Southwind without a single problem. First thing I did when we purchased our new Allegro was throw away the previous owner's hose and bought another Rhino Flex - It's the only way to go.

BTW - Walmart and Camping World carry the same ones but Walmart is about $8 cheaper the CW with your club membership.
