You can get those hoses at Walmart in different lengths. Back by the auto section you'll find 'em, there's an RV section there. Make sure it's the white hose for potable
water. There are other stores to find them as well, the potable water part is key for fresh water supply. A regular garden hose can be used for the tank flush inlet if you have one.
I recommend Rhino sewer hose set up. The kit comes complete and is brownish hose with orange fittings. Don't forget your black tank treatment chemicals too. I get those dis-solvable packets at Walmart. There's several brands of these, the Camco stuff has worked fine for me. They come in a Spring scent and citrus also. It is also available in liquid form, but I personally have found the packets easier. After tank empty, just flush one with 2 to 3 gallons of water and you're set.
There's a couple of the "need" things covered.
