I think they are much more popular with seasonal or long term campers. If you are a mobile camper they are unnecessary for a dump station, and probably a pain to setup. I have actually yet to see anyone pull one out at a dump station, but we haven't ever camped in spots with full-hookups.

I have one and use it if we are staying at a full hookup site long enough to dump more than once. I prefer not to walk stuff through the hose, I'd rather have it slope down rather than risk having it pull apart. But I too have never used or seen one used at a dump station. Good luck.

Big1,

If you're referring to the accordion style sewer hose supports, I vote to skip it!!! Yes, I bought one. My reasoning is that when you stretch it out to support the hose, the sewer hose sags inbetween each support. Which then requires one to "walk" the the hose to dump the contents. Maybe I did something wrong setting it up the couple times I used it, but that is my experience.

Not sure if you have done the 5" fence post sleeve mod for the sewer hos, but if so, buy a couple 4" u shaped gutters. Cut one to fit just inside the fence post sleeve, cut the other the same length but also cut it in half. Now you have a solid hose support. Or buy one of the extendable gutter attachments that go on the bottom of the downspout. Smaller to store, but can extend out. Couple blocks to support the gutter, and you're all set!!!

I have one for this very same reason. I have 20 ft hose, so I have 20 ft support. I use mine when I want to keep the hose off the ground, or when I need it to maintain a slope.

I won't say it's completely useless, but I'm sure I could live quite comfortably without it. I got it as a gift. I don't know that I've ever been somewhere it was "required". If it was, I didn't know about it.

Used a 4 inch PVC plastic rain gutter some years ago. Cut it to just under 8 feet and it slid right into the 4 inch bumper and the poo hose slides on top of it. No rust or rough spots to compromise your hose's integrity.

When camped, just slide it out and use as Norty has in his photo above. I used extra snap blocks and 2 bys for supports.

Bought my first when the fifth was new. Hard plastic, with each of the supports hinged to the next with molded plastic hinges. The hinges broke in several areas by the end of the first season, making it useless. Went without until I ended up at a CG that required them. At a local RV store, found one that seemed poorly made - supports were a hard rubber like material, and they were stapled together along alternating edges rather than hinged. But it was what there was, and I needed something. Surprisingly, it has lasted for 3 seasons, and is much easier to setup/stow than the hard plastic one was.
