How long does a sewer hose last ?

How often should I replace my sewer hose and connections.
Havn't had a problem yet and hope not to.

How often is it used? What brand or more specifically, what quality of hose is it? Does it leak? "If it ain't broke, don't fix it"

If you don't drag it on concrete or stones a couple of years. I had one out 9 months straight and using it now. I also keep a spare.

Funny story....we were staying at a place where the sewer connection was under the coach, about a third of the distance from the rear. You had to disconnect from the coach, put hose in sewer, then back up the coach and connect the hose up again. WELL, to make a long story short, we went through TWO hoses in one afternoon. They don't last too long that way once you back over them.

I dont have a clue about the hose and connections, but I have a question of my own.
I have never heard of jackass and thoroughbred used in the same sentence. What is a thoroughbred jackass? thought all jackasses were hybrid.

For me, about 2 years. Unless I crush by stepping on it or something. Like said earlier always keep a spare.

Right, that was my point with the question "What brand or Quality" is the hose you are using? I tossed the two I had and bought a Rino. These things are tough.

I use Rhinos too. They'll last even longer if you keep them off the ground. I use sections of eavestroughing to elevate the hose.

A purely unscientific observation. We tend to park for a month or more at one site. When we first started we left the slinky (Rhino) hooked up. After some weedeater damage we started only hooking the hose up when time to dump and then putting it away. The slinky now seems to last much longer - IMO, it is because it does not get exposed to sunlight day after day. I bought a new one after three years and keep the older one as a spare.

I have 4 hoses... I will give you their history.

One hose was the El-cheapo that came with the rig, It is still in use (using it now in fact) however I do not often use it.

Another is a 20' Camco easy store (Comes in a tube and it always remains in said tube, or part of it does, collasped it is entierly in the tube) I replaced it last year (RV and all original hoses are 2005) One I added last year, And the 4th is a Rhino Flex.. I replaced it last year as well.. NOW.. Not to speak bad of the RHINO flex.. It would have lasted longer save it got run over and stepped on and otherwise abused several times, and there was a problem with the storage compartment it lives in on the road that damaged it (Since fixed)

All but the easy store live in a length of six inch PVC on the road. The easy store lives in it's own tube.

watch for crows. they will peck holes in your stinky slinky.
i only hook up mine (rhino flex) to dump, then store it in a 6'' pvc tube under the rear of the moho that i made for that purpose.
i add 2 cups of bleach to the gray tank just prior to dumping it to flush out the stinky slinky so it doesn't stink anymore.
