One of the nice things about the Rhino-flex hose is that it collapses. If using it with the rain gutters, this is important as the length can be shortened (compressed) to match the distance to the sewer inlet.

I'm not sure if Valterra EZ coupling sewer kit can do that.

I agree with the ability to collapse the Rhino. The other thing I really like is that it does not want to "Unwind" when you pull the dump handle like most of the other makes on the market. I use one of the collapsible supports and it used to drive me crazy trying to keep it from flopping over when I went to dump. Now because the Rhino is not wound like a coil, it simply expands or contracts. The person that came up up the Rhino had their head screwed on straight.......great product.

I guess I can't go back to Arizona! When I dump the air in my coach to get the step close to the ground, there is not enough clearance under the coach (the hose goes out through a hole in the bottom of the wet bay) for me to use any kind of support like the Slunky I used with my last 5er.

If I just use the gutters laying flat on the ground under the hose would that meet the requirements?

Yes it compresses to about 36". It isn't a coil either, just rings so it compresses tight. That's also what makes it too darn flexible.

Love the gutter idea.I saw PVC cut lengthwise, but the gutters are, as my engineering friend used to say, a more elegant solution.

Yes, I do that as often as I can.

I use the Sewer Solution when there is a water source and sufficient time, and the PolyChute when there isn't a water source.

That's just absoulutely too neat. I'd lose my standing as second deputy assistant vice president in the chaos community if I were to do something like that.

I looked at the video. That looks like the ultimate in collapsible sewer hoses! A little pricey, but I guess if you want quality you gotta pay the price!

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

I use 4" PVC for a support. Just slice the PVC in half lengthwise. I carry several different lengths. You can slide them inside each other for different lengths of support. They also store easily by laying them inside one another. I still use a hose support, but lay the PVC in that. My sewer line always looks real straight and neat, no sags. By the way, I have a BlueLine hose and fittings.
