Very slick. I also started using the plastic gutters as hose support. So much better than fighting with those accordion-style supports. Think those things are the bane of RVing.

I also went with Lippert's Waste Master hose. It's expensive and requires an entirely different end on your sewer pipe connection that replaces the bayonet fitting (easy to install). It's an industrial camlock hose connection. Excellent system. Not going to say I love it, because love and sewer hose should never be in the same sentence

I got the cheap ones. From Wally World. Since 4 years. They're still black and they don't leak. That's about it. don't even know what brand. Honestly- what does a sewer hose has to do? The biggest issue is, when you push them in- and pull them out of the bumper, because it's metal rubbing. If it leaks, I go to wally world and get another $15 hose. That's just about it.
I mean of course- for some, sh#t needs to be disposed with high quality- I understand. But for me- it's a pipe.

If it's the heavier black plastic from Wally it's probably a Rhino. At least that is what mine is.

If you are storing in your bumper and put it away wet seriously consider switching to a plastic tube on the bumper or under the unit. The bumper will eventually rot through when used that way.

Haven't had ours for a year yet but we purchased the Camco and went with 5" fence post / gutter combo.

We have the camper now since September last year and since 8 weeks, we are permanent campers on our property, until we're done building our new cabin, which will be another 6 months or so. The hose is permanent outside and unfortunately the septic tank is about 200ft away, so I have to fill the tote up and run it down the hill every once in a while. But that's peanuts beside all the tree cutting and hauling dirt around. Tried the 4-wheeler, but that is more pain with the tote than just lift it up and roll it.
The bumper is 0.75mm steel. even if it really corrodes, I believe it will take a lifetime, till the bumper gets a hole. I even go as far to say, before the bumper corrodes through, everything else falls off before it happens.
I know, some want to make it perfect and make a science out of the most simplest things in the world- I admit- I'm "just" a user. If it breaks, I replace it or repair it and be done with. leaves me hell of a time to do all the other things that matter to me.
A sewer hose is just not on top of my priority list.

I am a fan of the orange Rhino products.

Years ago I went cheap. Never again. The cheap stuff flops all over the place when handling it and I had trouble getting secure connections. Do not, under any circumstances, buy a system that has those removable clamps that you adjust with a screwdriver.

Guy65,
I'm not sure if it can pump uphill but if it can a Macerator pump/system will leave you even more time for other things. Good luck with the cabin build.

Thanks, tbos1958- it's downhill- I thought about getting some sewer pipes at lowes and make a piping to the septic tank- but it ain't worth it, does not look good (my wife would kill me, if I would route sewer pipe through the yard) and would be too much hassle while mowing with the bushhog. I can drain it old fashioned way.
Thanks for the wishes. We're on it!

Trust me, takes ~ 10 years to get visible rust through on the bottom of the bumper. BTDT.

gives me another 5 years until the bumper needs to be replaced- and in 99% of the case, I will not have the camper that long
