We went to Camping World right after we bought our TT and loaded up. The little cheap brown hose that came with the trailer seemed like a failure waiting to happen. We bought the rinoflex because it looked to me from the offerings it would work very well and most importantly seal the system from end to end. I also bought caps for the ends so when we store it, it is also sealed.

We are in a park in Houston now and there is a guy who has his duct taped together, I am sure sooner or later that is going to be a disaster.

Purchased it the same day we purchased our camper. It came as part of a "starter kit" that you got to put together yourself out of the dealership's shop using a discount price package and a list of items.

I've been using the Camco Revolution hoses, but I'm not really satisfied with them. The issue I've had is not with the hose, but with the connectors which (for me at least) tend to leak. It's as if the rubber gasket ring shrinks or gets too hard.

Do the connectors on the Rhinoflex have a tendency to leak?

Mine don't leak at all, but now I'm afraid they will. How old is your hose?

They are about three years old. They have a tendency to leak where they attach to the dump valve, or where two lengths are fastened together. The leak is just a dribble, usually fixed by repositioning the connection. It seems like the fittings do not create enough pressure on the gasket - like if I could make them just a bit tighter, they would not leak. I bought some replacement gaskets which I'll install before our first trip when the freeze has abated.

Let us know how the gasket replacement goes. I like my hose very much, and if it starts to leak, I would like to know I could repair it rather than replace it...

Wow, I'm the only one using the Dominator brand? Interesting, for some reason I thought it would be more popular than that. But perhaps I shouldn't spend so much time thinking about how popular my sewer hose is amongst peers.
