Battle of the sewer hose

Good evening, I'm trying to get ready for the spring and
I've been looking for the best sewer Hose. It appears to be between the Volterra viper and the rhinoflex. I've looked on line and cannot really find any reviews from recently. I just wanted to get some opinions based on real life experiences. Also, if you know of something that would be comparable or better, please eat me know. Thanks in advance for all the help.

RWeigant: I have been thinking about the SaniCon sewer hose system. Nervous about it clogging, though. If the advantage is how easy it is to use, what would you say is the greatest disadvantage (other than cost)?

It would take a whole lot of good ol' basic sewer hoses to add up to the cost of one SaniCon, so it would need to be REALLY good to justify the $$$, IMO.

Save your money for important things like traveling. I've always used camco hoses I've never had one leak, of course you have to take care of them never leave them out ever. When tanks are full hook up and dump when finished put it away out of the sun and away from dangerous string trimmers etc. I always carry a new hose with me if I see any sign of a weak spot I replace it. The one I'm using right now is three years old I'll replace it soon cost around twenty dollars. What more do you need it gets the job done.

+1 Rhinoflex once you use one you would never go back to a traditional hose.

I use Rhinoflex and like it. Tight fit and compresses to a small size for storage. Air tight caps for both ends when stored. Not too expensive.

Bought my Rhinoflex shortly after buying MH. The hose that came with it had pinholes (yuck). The Rhino has never let me down. Compacts really well and shows no signs of wearing out. The only negative I can think is that mine has some plastic flanges on the MH side bayonet connector which makes it really tight to get through the pre-cut square hole in my sewer connection bay. I have mastered it now but it has made me wonder about either a. the sizing of the whole in the bay or b. the size of the flanges on the bayonet. I guess they are there so as to remove the coupling from the hose but hey why would you really want to do that in 99% of all cases?

I switched to Rhino-flex after a couple accidents with the wal-mart cheepo's. No problem since and shrinks doen for easy storage.

Here is 20 feet of Rhino... have the 15' main - 2 5' extensions and 1 10'. Only been in use about a month and a half but it is working like a Swiss watch.

30' of the Thetford over engineered hose in the pic is now on my neighbors 5er. I had washed it out and let it dry but couldn't bring myself to throw it away. I gave it to him when he pulled in and found his hoses were in need of some repair.

I'm not much of a fan of the Rhinoflex. Mine developed pinhole leaks after a couple of seasons and the connections were too large to fit into the storage tube on my TT. I have a Macerator on the MH and use it for quick dumps since it is so easy to deploy but when staying longer I use a red Valterra hose. After a couple of seasons I throw them out before they even think about leaking.

Will not clog. The system has a merserator built in. Nothing goes out the hose but liquid. Very easy to use. Just take off the cap, put it in the sewer hold and push the button. The host can be extended by just screwing another decanted hose you buy from any store. I bought a blue one so that you wouldn't get it mixed up with a drinking host. The hose that comes with it can be stretched about 15 feet. When your done you store it in the water area. It's that small.
Don't take the advice of people that haven't used one. Three years ago my Monaco was ordered with it and I would never go back. Sewer hoses are a pain, but this makes it easy.

I have heard the pinhole complaint before and will watch for it. In 20 years of using cheap blue ones with the old B-Van I never really had a problem. The only thing that would happen was the wire where the hose clap attached to the fitting at either end would eventually cut through the plastic. Wire cutters and snip snip back in place. The thing with the B-Van was I could always make a short hose work because I had plenty room in any site to put the van where the hose would reach.

With the Bounder that's not always the case and I have needed varying lengths to make a tidy connection. The 5 and 10 foot extensions won't always be used so hopefully it and they all hold up. Never had a pinhole in any hose.

Was your use full time or occasional use? Was hose put up dry or washed and wet? Any idea why it got pinholes?
