Waste Hose Lenght...

I just purchased a new to us 28' TT. The PO threw out the old waster dump hose and I'm fine with that.

I bought a 20' hose but it seems long. The manual doesn't tell me what the length of the one from the factory was. Just wondering what length you folks are using? I'm thinking 10' collapse should be more then sufficient...

I use a 10' collapsible Rhino. The only time I've had it be too short was when I was using a spot that was intended for motorhomes to park head-in on, with a backed-in TT. I'd rather have two 10' hoses than one 20' hose. Often the 10' seems too long as well.

10 at the dump station, but sometimes need the 20 (10x2) at full hookup sites.

Factory didn't include the hose , selling dealer usually threw it in .
I've been in RV sites where I needed 35' , but most times now my 10' does the ... dare I say it ... job.

I carry 2-15' ones and use the BlueLine fittings to connect them if needed. Normally I don't need the second one but I have used it a few times.

I have two 15' sections that go with me. Splicer if needed.

At home (I should say home base, we live in our class a) I use an adapter to go from the 3" to a garden hose. That hose runs 35' to a connection to a drain under a sink. We have a half bath in the office/garage we park beside. Only number one in the Rv at home.

That Idea came from the "sewer solution" I purchased before and is still in use on our old Rv.

That setup goes where we go, just in case.

Oh yea, there is a clear clean out in there, too!

Thanks folks. How do you carry the extra hose and where do you carry your main hose? Guess mine goes in the bumper but dont like that idea...

Bumper, fits over 30 foot of hose, allowed it to dry, easy access, not stinking up a bay, so why don't you like that idea?

No matter how much hose you have, you'll always come up one foot short at some point LOL. Seriously though, I carry a long and short Rhino hose and keep the short one in reserve just in case. Had to use it about five times over the past four months. Both store easily in the bumper.

I carry 2 Rhinoflex collapsible hoses. There are sites ie: Ocean view that I like to headin park. Usually needs 2 hoses to reach. I rinse them real well and keep them in a Rubbermade container in my storage. My coach has a storage tube in the wet compartment but the fittings don't fit in the hole.
