Sewer Hose Support

Iíve tried a few dump hose supports, some plastic, some metal, they all fall short of expectations in my opinion. Has anyone found a super good one they would recommend?

I have used this one for years and it has not sprung a leak yet and all the fittings are still tight.

I use this one with no problems. It has a slope which is needed.

That's the same as mine. I used it once and decided it was a pain to put out and pick back up. I just let my hose lay on the ground and when I'm done with it I rinse it well, walk it out to drain it, cap the inlet end, collapse the hose and cap the other end and store it away.
I'm a weekender. If I was staying for an extended length of time I would use the support.
The support did work well the one time I did use it.

Ignore this, I thought I was answering a different post.

The problem with that is the sewer pipes that stick up from the ground a few inches. Since itís all gravity fed, Iíve seen many Campgrounds where simply laying in the ground would not drain. Those plastic supports may be a pain, but they work. Well at least for the short runs. Longer runs can cause the hose to sag between supports.

I have used white pvc rain gutter cut to various lengths. It can be stored one inside another, and the slinky can be stored in it also. If you need a long run, the end of one fits nicely into the next one. Bind them and the slinky with ball bungies. You can make trestles to stand it up on from increasing sized 6 inch lengths of pvc pipe that can be stored within one another.

I hear what you are saying but where my hose connects to the coach's drain is roughly two feet above ground level. No problem draining.
My son in law is a licensed plumber and I tell him all the time the only thing he has to know is payday is Friday and sh** runs downhill.

I started using this one instead of the camco which I had used for years. It is not as prone to falling over.

We use a Sidewinder too with no problem. We've used it all bunched up and all spread out, depending on sites. On one occasion I had to slip a rock under it at one point to make things work. But overall it's dependable.

You'll find more and more RV parks are requiring them now, after too many eco mishaps.

I agree they are more trouble than they are worth. Maybe for longer stays could be beneficial, but the ground supports my hose just fine.
I just pick up hose and walk it back towards the drain when packing up

I've used this one: Lippert 365053 Waste Master Flow Down RV Drain Support System.

Click image for larger version

Name:	Flow Down.jpg
Views:	30
Size:	345.8 KB
ID:	394850

Available here: https://www.ebay.com/itm/16601900233...Bk9SR5zlpdyTYg

It provides support across uneven ground and can be adjusted to provide constant negative gradient for positive flow.

Take care,
Stu
