How much sewer line

Planning our maiden voyage in our new TT and I am wondering if 15ft of sewer hose is enough?

If 15' isn't enough then simply move forward/rearward.
Don't forget you also need a cord (and water hose) long enough.

Fortunately both hose's are cheap, the power cord not.

You don't indicate what type of RV you have. Many rigs now have more than 1 dump valve location. Our Hemisphere has one hookup for the bathroom's gray and black tanks and a separate hookup for the gray water from the kitchen. You can make due shuffling back and forth, but its nice to have a Y so you can leave everything hooked up. We still keep valves closed, but not having to crawl under the slideout to shuffle sewer hoses is preferred.

With regard to length, I believe we have a two 10' that connect to the Y and another 10' extension that we occasionally use. We try to set up where the sewer is convenient and adjust everything else accordingly.

It would depend on where your dump hookup is. I motorhome so mine is near the back. 15' is always long enough. But there is a camper in our seasonal park that has one way up front and one almost to the back. We hard line ours in with PVC pipe but she's got a pretty long run from the front dump to the back and into the dump hole. I know there is at least 2 10' sections plus some additional distance to go out and around.

I have been in sites that had the hookups on the wrong side Others that had the sewer, water, and electric quite a distance from where they probably should have been. For this reason, I carry two 10 footers and a 20 footer. I don't need all of that very often, but there have been times I'm glad I had all of them.

We are at a seasonal site now with 20 feet out but 15 would work with a straighter run. Generally we carry 35 feet when traveling and have used every bit a couple times for optimal site settings. I use the Camco Revolution lower end hoses which are a lot more flexible then their Rhinoflex system (also have those but now only as backup)

OP: Whatever you do don't buy the cheapest one. They are very thin and even a rock or a cactus sticker can put a hole in it. You don't want to be standing there when it explodes!!

You need a minimum of 30 feet. I have used 50 feet a couple times and 40 feet occasionally. Better to have and not need as to need and not have.

How much can you fit?

I have a motorhome and installed a storage for the sewer hoses to get them out of my wet bay. Many TT have sewer hose storage in the bumper. I have a 15' and a 10' Rhiniflex hoses which fit in the storage that is just under 8'. So if you have storage in your bumper I would recommend you get a 15' and a 10' Rhinoflex hoses.
