Rhino is very good. Sooner or later you will find a situation where you don't have enough. But, having a 10' and 20' section should cover most situations you will run into. You will also want to get a sewer hose support (aka Slunky) which will help drainage at a campsite. And never ever accept a campsite where the sewer hookup is uphill from your unit unless you are using a macerator pump. Yes stuff does flow downhill....

I use what ever brand I find when it is needed. Recommend a minimum of 1-20' and 1-10' with coupling to connect. I needed 40' this year once but the 10 and 20 together or separetely are usually enough.

My Sewer Solution plus PVC pipe extension once again did the deed cleanly with no mess and it stores easily.
My SaniCon does that too, but how does that answer the OP'S question?
I use my Blue line setup most of the time.

I bought the Polychute plus a 10' extension (making 25' together). High quality hose- used it for 9 years so far.

The OP asked "What is a good sewer hose? Also, what length is best? "

Why does my 1" sewer hose plus pvc extensions not answer both questions?

But thanks for correcting my error, if there was one!

When you go to this site it will not let you register and says they are not accepting any new orders.

Not sure if it was mentioned yet,
but the most important parking rule for me is to park such that the sewer is the shortest hose I have to use...

water and electric are easy to run out and in.... sewer, not so much especially if like the last few I've stayed at where the sewer connection was uphill !!!

One nice thing about the brown rhino flex is that most campground stores sell them too. I know it's not going to be the cheapest, but if you need another section, you get a leak, etc. it makes it a lot easier to get hooked up with little hassle, even if it costs you an extra $10......

Last year, I carried 2 - 10 footers, picked up a 3rd one this spring, and have run into a couple places that it was nice to have over 20' given where I wanted the coach in our space.

I also carry extra gaskets.....

The only issue I have had hookiing up is that some parks are putting the connection point in a concave concrete surround, which make sense. However, it can make it a challenge to get the threaded connection on tight enough and have enough room on the right angle connection to it to hook the hose fittings. One time, I just had to use my rubber gasket which I don't like to use since it really makes sense to have a foot on it to ensure it does not come out . Need to look into a threaded extension or see if there is another fitting I should get to resolve that issue.

I also got a 50 amp extension cord (expensive), haven't needed it yet, but came close a couple times!

Regards

We are on our second Rhino-Flex hose. I like them, but they are not made to lay in the sun all summer.

Sewer Extension

When the Sewer is so low you cannot connect the hose, consider making from a PVC Male and Female fittings the size to fit the smaller thread on your connector. I have one for the small thread and one for the large thread to be able to make the connection to different campgrounds thread sizes. You may experience that the bend will be a little high, but that does create a water trap just as used in most plumbing installations which will prevent sewer gas escaping through your vent. I have found that the small one will insert into many pipes that do not have a thread. I have not found the donuts to work well.
