Sewer Hose

I bought a Camco Rhino 20’ sewer hose about two years ago at Walmart. I really like the way it collapses for storing. It came with the 90 clear connection. I also really like it is in two ten foot sections.

Today I went to use just the first section because the hole was that close. I hooked the hose to the camper and then moved it out to the dump hole. I had to wiggle the 90 into the hole. When I turned around the other end I had connected to the camper was on the ground. The connector to the 3” dump pipe was still secured on the pipe. Now that is scary. I used the other 10’ length to do the dump without issue.

How the first length would have held up during the dump is why I mention this. I envision RV the movie.

Now what/where to buy with the features I like above?

You need to screw the hose back into the connector. Counterclockwise.

Thank you for that info. I tried screwing it back on what looked like the “right way” with no joy. Not enough threads to do the job right.

But dang it could have been messy.

Last thought is never had this issue before ever. What is a reliable hose that collapse and comes in two parts?

Does your hose have the screw on collar on the bayonet? If not it was probably glued at the factory. You can buy a replacement fitting.

My Rhino hose has a locking ratchet type ring. It has come loose in the past, I always double check it.

But... always pull the grey drain first to test, if connections are secure close it and drain the black. If something fails grey water is not as bad as a black failure.

I also keek my hand on the valve for a quick close in case something fails. Only after that first rush do I take my hand off the valve.

I thought all Camco Rhino hoses were spiral threaded with the locking ring.
One time I was hooking up my hose when one end disconnected from the fitting. That was a close call. I simply screwed it back on, but now I check them every time I hook up!

I've had hoses get holes in them near the ends. I just cut the hose off below the leaks, clean up the ends, and reglue them with PVC cement. The shorter hose lengths come in handy at times when a single hose is not enough, but two 10 foot hoses are way too much. I soak them in bleach water every few months to keep them from getting too nasty.

I tend to try to avoid Camco products because I have have had several unpleasant experiences with them including two Rhinoflex hoses. There are many products that are better.

Etrailer has expert advice available to pick a good one.

I have a Thetford Titan. Very strong and large couplers that don't hurt your hands when connecting. The kit comes with caps and an elbow. I got the 5' extension so 20' total.

looking at the pictures of the newer hoses, they don't appear to have the black locking ring anymore.

Old style with the locking rings. Camco got cheap and started gluing the hose to the fittings

I bought a couple new rhino hoses at the beginning of this year. I tested both - one of them leaked at the collar. These are the new style without the screw collar. You can fix them. I fixed mine.

Essentially, you need to compress the pins on the bayonet connector and then pull it off, which gives you access to the part that seals to the hose. It screws on still, but is held in place with a bead of silicone sealant in a channel and the threads are nowhere near as robust. In my case there was a gap in the sealant. I scraped the sealant out, filled the channel back up with new silicone and then re-inserted the hose and re-attached the coupler. I left it for about 12 hours and it’s been great all season. So they’re possible to fix - if you want to spend the time.

OP here….

I looked at the failed connection today. The picture glwinger posted is my hose except the hose locking piece to the connector part on my hose is black, not orange.

I twisted the black ring counter clockwise till I had enough hose sticking out of it to screw that section of hose into the connector firmly. Then I twisted the black ring clockwise till it got to the hose connector and then I saw/felt little teeth on the connector that are supposed to lock the black ring in place. I guess not a bad design. But I also noticed on that connector the ring with hooks on it to lock into the 3” dump hose was not rotating freely on this connector like the other ones do. So maybe, ?, twisting the hose latch onto or off of the 3” pipe was causing, in my case, the black ring to back out of its locked position on the connector. With time it basically unscrewed from the connector.

Hose fixed I hope. Sure hope it is poop tight.

One detail, I had to extend the end of the hose before it was obvious the black locking ring was doing anything rotating it counter clockwise.
