Have read all of the discussion on sewer hoses but have not come across my situation. Since we winter in AZ I leave the hose connected continuously with the gray water valve open. I have been using Rhinoflex and have recently discovered small holes at various locations over the length of the hose. Today I noticed a woodpecker on the site next to us. This gives me reason to believe that I will probably need to protect the replacement hose from not only UV exposure but also from woodpecker damage. Anyone else experienced this?

Once a week I dump and put the hose away. Just a moment that saves grief! No woodpeckers, no UV.
If you stay long term and don't adventure, a big PVC pipe is what most use. Ask neighbors or the park folks.

There are adapters to join them, but how about this ?
just use your regular hose and buy larger pvc pipe to 'cover' it for protection...
get it large enough and you can run heat tape inside it too to stop freezing
(know not to leave black open and close grey a day before dumping black so you can wash it out )
