I can understand water concerns if you live in an arid area. Most of the small campgrounds I frequent and at my house I use a septic system. Effluent goes to a tank.solids settle out and water is slowly leached into the ground. I flush, two weeks later folks in the neighboring towns a pumping it out of the lakes and drinking it.
I have Rhino hose, only problem is hose does not fit in the bumper.

My point was the overall impact, not just the money. Does their cost analysis include the sewer charges which are included in most every water bill? The billing theory is that what comes in must go out through the sewer system and needs treatment. I wonder how the campground feels about supplying extra water and more sewer charges for their dump station use?

Another observation is that many of us camp in areas where drought is a real problem. We use their local resources and drive away so I guess it's not our problem then? Cost isn't always the only factor.

The purpose of posting my use analysis on the "Solution" was to provide information to those who may have a concern. As was mentioned above, anyone can do whatever they want in the good old U.S. of A.

No sewer charges. Have a septic system.

Re: Sewer Hose Suggestions

+1 more for Rhino. I also have the super slinky that came with the TT as a backup/extension but have not needed to use it yet.

Ditto on the Rhino. They collapse to a manageable size and can be extended easily. I carry a 15' and a 5'. They are easy to find too, most Walmarts carry them.

I don't have Rhino Hose, but have considered buying it. One of it's advertising points is that it does fit into a standard 4" bumper. What part of it does not fit yours? Is it too long, or do the fittings not fit? Or something else?

I beleive this is something that has been corrected with later offerings. Earlier offerings can be "corrected" through shaving down the connector. I purchased mine last season and it fits the 4" bumper perfect....(except for the sewer adapter). I simply cut my adapter down to fit so I could keep everything together in the bumper......(see following link)

X3 on the Rhino. Fits in my bumper just fine. To the OP the Rhinos are "stiffer". You have to "pull" them out to length or anywhere in between. If you be using a hose support don't get the "slinky" kind. They won't stay in the support properly. They sag between the gaps in the support and are just a pain in the rear. This is where the Rhino style excels. No sagging.

Thanks everyone for your advice. Good to know Recondite about the supports and slinky type. Husband is taking a look now at the Rhino options.

I just bought a 15ft "Viper" hose kit with 10ft extension. Haven't used it yet, but it looks very sturdy. I'm not sure it will fit into a 4 inch bumper, but my Jay Feather doesn't have a storage bumper anyway. I mounted a 5 inch PVC fence post to my rear bumper, and it fits nicely into that.

We picked up our 184BH from the dealer yesterday (so excited!) and went with the Rhino hose because of this thread. The dealer didn't push it because of the cost over the standard pipe but when I asked he agreed it was a good upgrade.
