Camco Revolution Sewer Hose Fittings

I have this Revolution Sewer Hose kit which is comprised of two 10" lengths of brown hose with the yellow couplers on one length and the elbow connector on the other.

One of the hoses has a small tear and I want to replace it but I can't seem to figure out how these yellow swivel connectors come off. There's a grey collar at the ends of the hose and the yellow connector swivels on this piece.

Any idea how this swivel connector is removed to put a new hose on?

Thanks in advance.....

The fittings are factory attached, and I don't believe they are replaceable.

Thanks...I ended up with the same conclusion and just replaced the length with a RhinoFlex hose.

I use only the Rhinoflex or the Dominator line by Valterra. Not only are the connectors factory bonded, but they both use the semi-rigid hose that will hold its length and alignment when you position it as desired. They're also compactable for storage. The Revolution has bonded fittings, but still uses that cheap slinky hose that won't compress or hold its shape. Even if you're parked four feet from the sewer pipe you will still have 15 ft of that hose snaked around on the ground, impeding the flow and at risk of being damaged underfoot.

I have the Rhinoflex hoses and fittings. The fittings are not factory bonded, but held on with locking rings.

Rhinoflex Locking Ring

I use these so that I can change the end fittings or couple hoses together.

By golly you're right! I never noticed that before, but I find it curious. I don't recall ever having seen the Rhinoflex type of hose for sale separately, only as assembled hoses. Have I missed the memo? I see no point in installing the heavy Rhino fittings onto the cheap slinky hose.

I don't think the hose is sold without fittings. You can use the coupler to connect two hoses for a longer hose or change one end, for instance, to connect from dump valve to "Blue Boy" where both devices use the same fitting. I suppose that if you have a hose with a hole, you can cut out that section and reinstall the fitting.
