Camco Revolution - I picked it up a Wal Mart fairly cheap and it has been a good hose so far.

I use the Duraflex premium hoses (red box).

I used to work in a RV dealer parts department. The 'red boxed' Duraflex sewer hoses are what the service techs used and they held up pretty good against all the abuse they got in their hands. I figured if they held up that well against all the ill-treatment they got in the service department, they should do real well in the seldom and gentle use I give them.

FWIW: I use the Valtera EZ coupler system. They're quick & easy to install and you don't have to wrestle with the connector or a hose stretcher to get it on the hose.

Been using the hose and fittings that apparently came originally with the unit. Previous owner used it, and still works just fine, after 10 years. See no reason to spend $$ to change it. JMHO

You mean you don't have to use tongs to stretch the hoses like Robin Williams did in RV???

Rhinoflex here. I'm sing the same hose that I bought 3 1/2 years ago and it is still going strong after 3 1/2 years of full time use.

Rhinoflex since 2004, added another 10' in 2008 for longer reach, all stored in the rear bumper.

I use the Camco heavy duty (the tan ones). They last a long time, are reasonably priced and available at any Walmart. I use the Valtera (red) connectors. I carry a 10' and a 20' setup with a connector for the rare time I need to hook them together. These hoses last for years.

LOL! Nope.

FWIW, when I was still working for the RV dealer, one of our wholesaler reps came in one day and brought a salesman with him. The salesman was pushing the Rhino sewer hose. I told him give me one and I'd let the tech's in service tell me how it holds up compared to the Duraflex sewer hoses they used, (See my previous post above). The guy gave me a dumb look. I never did see a free 'demo' hose for the service dept to use. I'm not saying the Rhino hose isn't a good one, but the guy didn't seem like he was too eager for me to put it to the test.
