Best Black Water Drainage System?

I am new to TT's and getting ready for our first camping trip in April in our X213 Ultralite. I was wondering with all the experience out there, who has found the best set up for their Black and Gray water drain system?

Are there any brands that might be better than others?

What accessories would you recomend?

Where do you store the hose and connections? I have read that some add a PVC tube under trhe TT to store the hose.

Thanks all,
Brent

I use the Camco Rhino flex hose. It has a very secure connection and is rigid enough to stay in my slinky holder. The problem with this hose is that it doesn't really fit in the bumper, so this year I am considering mounting a black pipe under the RV to hold the hose. This will also be an advantage to have the hose closer to the outlet.

What ever you pick, be sure to get a hose and fittings that connect securely, nothing worse than dumping and having a hose malfunction.

This clear elbow will assist in letting you know when the water runs clean:

I use this hose and it works very well:

Keep a box of disposable gloves handy too. As far as the PVC pipe goes I've seen people have some very good luck with it, just remember to spray it out every once in a while.

I also use the Rhino Flex system. Also a clear fitting at the top to see when it runs clear. There are many choices but they are not interchangeable, so stick with one. Most people use a 15 ft hose and carry shorter 5 or 10 ft sections to add on if needed.

I also use the Rhino hose and the fittings would not fit in my sewer hose holder. I added a square vinyl fence post to the bumper of my trailer to hold the Rhino hose.

I full time and use the Rhino Flex. I have a 15' section and 2 five foot sections when needed. I use the 15' and a single 5' all the time at my home base and both sections are holding up well after 18 months of continuous use. I have a replacement 15' section without fittings in case the original 15' section hose gives up. So far it looks great.

Thanks for the info guys. Now I have some direction on where I want ot go. I see there are two options for flushing the systems. One is to use the spray wand from the toilet and the other for the pipe connection to reverse flush the system. Anyone have advice on either system?

They also make this one:

Shop around. I paid around $15 for it off Amazon 3-4 months ago.

x6 on the Rhino Flex hose. It has fit in past and present bumpers but only one way and that is the sewer end first with the four nubs in the corners of the bumper. It's tight, but fits.

I used a king flush on my last TT that did not have the built in spray. Personally I liked being able to flush from right at the hookup for the times when you are at a dump station "line". If you can install one then go with that and mount the hookup as close as possible to your service side. If not then a wand is good to use when you can drag in a hose and spray the tank down.

Definitely a clear see though connection somewhere so you know whats going on by sight.

Pack of disposable gloves.

For more ideas try a search in the mods section.
