The Stinky Slinky
I have run into very few people (read nobody) that looks forward to draining their holding tanks. That said, I believe there is an understanding that hot water for dishes and showers, a flushable toilet regardless of where you are, and in some cases a dishwasher, comes with a price. That price comes in the form of connecting a sewage hose from your RV to a sewage inlet and hoping everything goes as planned.
This is an area where most folks won’t cheap out and spend the money on a durable hose with lockable fittings. Enter in, the RhinoFlex sewage hose from Camco.
The Camco RhinoFLEX is very durable with bayonet fittings and thick polyolefin hosing. We have never had a leak in the four years we have used it. The hose itself is durable yet easy to collapse and store in a bin or storage tube. When deployed, I simply use the amount I need to get to the dumping inlet and leave the rest collapsed which cleans up the utility side of our glamper when camping in a park location.
This kit is also nice because it is a one-click solution from Amazon. You get two lengths of hose totaling 20ft, a swivel fitting, translucent elbow, both end caps for storage, and a 4-in-1 dump station fitting.
Don’t get me wrong, there are several hose options on the market that won’t hit your pocketbook as hard. The challenge with these hoses is they develop pinholes or have poorly designed fittings which can leak. I get putting up with a leaky garden hose or what have you, but pulling the lever on the blank tank only to find…stuff leaking out everywhere isn’t what I would call a good time. My suggestion is to invest in a good sewage hose and save money elsewhere when shopping for your RV accessories.
In my opinion, this is a must-have kit for your RV lifestyle despite throwing a little more money at it.
