Rhino hose in winter?

Can a Rhino Flex hose be used over the winter in possible below zero conditions?

That's a little chilly...lol
I wouldn't think it would make it on it's own,but if wrapped with a heat tape and some insulation it would probably be fine.

If you arrange the hose so no waste water stands in the hose and if you only dump nearly full tanks, (don't let grey or black water trickle into the hose), any brand sewer hose can be used long term in below zero conditions.

Mine did just fine in single digit temps back in January. I was facing west so hose was in sun and waited till after noon to pull the valve to dump. No problems except it was froze to the ground when left! I used the outside shower and sprayed it with hot water and solved the problem. We were there for about two weeks for a memorial service for a fellow club member.

What about the holding tanks freezing, or even the outside shower? Are they close enough to the interior heat to keep them from freezing?

No freezing tanks, class a motorhome with two 200watt My Heat heaters in basement and wetbay. These heaters are available at Walmart for around $10. They're safer than lightbulbs and have a fan. We have insulated our coach ourselves very much for heat and cold.

I have gone below freezing many times.. I use a support so there is no standing water and only open the dump valves when needed (once or twice a week at the most, just once now that I'm single)

Only once did I ever have an issue, That time I forgot the support and there was standing water, Had to wait for it to melt before I could pack up.
