I was at Camping World picking up a few things which needed to include a new sewer hose. I saw they had both the Valterra "Dominator" and Camco "Rhino Flex", which are of the same collapsible, wire holding style. I liked the Dominator because it had free-spinning fittings where the Rhino's just threaded on. It looks like a good idea but that's where you all come in. I tried to search them but no luck here.

Anybody try these better mousetraps?

I am a fulltimer. I used a Rhino Flex for apx 11 months when it came apart at the flex joints -- UV/sun rot maybe? I replaced it with a Ramble SuperFlex from Camping World I have now been using for 12 months and still going strong -- the Ramble is very similar to the Rhino. In both cases, I bought a hose without fittings as I prefer the red Valtera fittings.

i use the red valterra hoses with factory installed fittings.
less leaks and no wrestling with installing fittings.
usually get 4 years before they have to be replaced.
