I am going to check out Camping World on Saturday in hopes of replacing the cheap one that came with the camper! I will write down the name of the one you suggested and see if they have it. Thanks so much! Definitely not the place to be cheap!

There is a newcomer on the market I am testing Smart Hose from Tethford I think. I have been using one since Nov or Dec..

On this unit the hose has cam lock fittings on the end and the adapters that connect to the RV and to the hole in the ground have matching latches.. The first time putting it together I was wondering if I was strong enough to get 'em locked on (I was but it was not easy).

Since then it's been easier.. But I really like the hose so far.. Nice heavy feel to it, Springs back if I accidently crush it (only crushed half way so far) works well on most holes (All the ones I've tried it on) Looks like it may outlast the last (Rino) hose I used.

Does it collapse as far as the rhino and does it stay collapsed?

However, if/when it ever wears out I will get another!

Been using this hose for the past few years and have yet to destroy one. I always check the connections before I dump just to be safe but I did that with the twist lock also,

I'll second the hose support. We didn't have one when we started out and a CG maintenance guy clipped the hose with a weed whacker. End of cheap hose. Bought another, same thing happened only this time the thing blew up during a dump and I ended up with freckles. The new Rhino now sits atop a new hose support in all it's glory...hopefully out of the way of the weed whackers.

Ditto on the Rhinoflex. I used to get pinholes and had to replace hoses frequently. Three years now on the Rhino and it s still like new.

Get whatever hose you like or is in your price range what really matters is how you use it. If you leave it in the sun it will have a much shorter life expectancy sun and plastic are not friends. I have a brown camco ten foot that's almost three years old that looks like new it gets used to dump tanks I rinse it out and store it away from grass trimmers the sun and errant little feet I'm careful not to drag it on the ground ever that's where the pin holes often come from. Last hose lasted six years it still looked good but I chickened out and replaced it while I was ahead.

Rhinoflex here. Plus a cheap unknown brand extension hose for the rare occasion I need one.

I have one of those expanding hose stands. Used it once, not a big deal to me.

I found the Blueline hoses developed cuts and pinholes after awhile, and I had to keep replacing them. So far the Rhinoflex does not. I have some new Blueline hoses but I have stopped uisng them in favor of Rhinoflex.
