It was more money and is a POS. Wish I'd gone with the original that worked like a charm for half the cost.

15' length with a 10' extension.

We gave away our Rhino flex and extension when we sold our Fifth Wheel...then I made the mistake of buying the RhinoFlex "Extreme" and an extension. Like you...I find it about worthless. It rolls itself off the stand...won't collapse down to a small size and retain it's shape. I still use it when I have a full hookup...but I wind up using the el cheapo hose that came with our coach when I go to a dump station. The Rhinoflex extreme winds up being too long and wriggles around in the ground like a snake while dumping. The original would only pay out what you needed...and held it's shape very well.

How does Camco justify marketing a inferior product for a premium price and call it "extreme"???

Extreme stupidity on my part for buying it.

Rhino Flex for me, too. I have two 15' and a 5'. The 5' come with a coupling so I can joint the two 15's if I need to. Florida sun finally killed the first Rhino Flex, but it took most of two years.

I too have the regular brown 15' Rhinoflex. Works well. Stores nicely as it collapses and stays collapsed until you pull it apart. I haven't needed any more than 15'. I would buy the same again.

I guess I'll speak for the minority view. I upgraded to a rhino flex when the one I had (I don't know the brand) sprung a leak after about 3 years. I hate the rhino flex. It has extra connections behind each end component that serve no purpose that I can see other than loosen and leak. I wish I had my old hose back (without the leak of course). Since so many of you like the rhino flex, can you tell me what those extra parts are for?

We too use the Rhinoflex. It's a combination of it's being flexible, yet I can vary the length to suit our need at the time and it's easy to store. We have a 15' main section and we carry two 5' extensions. I did have to replace the main section after about 7 years of use, 5 of those full time. The sun will eventually destroy anything, especially if made of plastic.

Vary rare to need extension but with 45' rig it helps on old campgrounds.

We still use our now 11 year old SewerMaster hoses for the Travel Supreme. With the Bounder, we needed new hoses and SewerMaster is no longer available. We found RhinoFlex the closest to the SewerMaster hoses. Not quite as thick but does keep is shape when positioned and collapsed.

We carried (3) 12' Sewer Master Hoses and have used all three at times. So far, with the RhinoFlex, we have been okay with a 15' and a 10' extension.

Brown Rhino Flex here also. Have two 10' sections. Almost never use the second 10'. Since we are mostly boondocking we usually only dump and stations though. Never stay hooked up.

I've been using the various parts and pieces in this "RV sewer hose kit" since '01: Prest-O-Fit Blueline Ultimate Sewer Kit

BTW "best", (as always)... is in the eye of the BEERholder.

I see we're in a severe minority, but I'm with you! We've just started our 26th year of FT, and I've bought a sum total of 5 el cheapo 20' heavy duties. Once because of dropping a philips straight thru it off the slide out, and once because hail ripped it up pretty good (saw the holes before I pulled the valve!). I carry an extra 15' of salvaged hose with a connector for possible long runs.

Yesterday, I chose to dump about 26' behind my sewer drop and the dump point itself was raised about 6".

My Sewer Solution plus PVC pipe extension once again did the deed cleanly with no mess and it stores easily.

Me Too Me Too

I also use a Rhino Flex. Have been for several years. I recently bought a new TT and put my MH on the market. I was going to leave the "old" Rhino with the MH and bought a inexpensive Camco hose. But having used the "new" Camco I decided that my "old" Rhino was much better because the Camco kept wiggling and could not maintain itself on the racks. Camco is not bad it just wasn't the same as my Rhino. So I swapped them out and stayed with Rhino (15 ft) and bought a 10 ft section. Don't know anything about the extreme.
