Sub. for Dometic refrigerator drain hose?

White hose crumbling at plug end due to exposure to elements. Anything special about it or can I just use some 1/2 tubing? I got it off of the barbed end of the drain with no problem.

First thing I do with a new camper is wrap that hose with electrician tape from end to end. My current one has been in use for three and a half years with no breakage / crumbling yet.

On each of my RVs, i changed the hoses when I bought the rigs. Ran cheap, longer hoses. Made sure they were routed away from all heat sources and so the would be heading down stream the entire route. Never had a problem. Had one rig for over 10 years.

OP here: Found ten foot roll of black vinyl tubing at Home Depot. Fits snugly on frig and at drain cap. Have enough left over for at least two more repairs. Liked black for probable UV protection and end very visable at vent so I should notice if tubing falls back inside frig.

When in humid locations I feed the tube out of the vent so it will drain outside; the little cup not runeth over
