Sewer Hoses -Mod Pics Included- need advice

I just took delivery of our new TT. I sold my motorhome and the nice guy I am I left my new Rhino Sewer hose for the buyer. I like the Rhino for many reasons, but it did not fit, nor will it fit in the standard square tube bumper. The ends don't and they (Rhino) neglect to advise, they suggest to store the ends inside in something sealed. No way...

Anyways I custom fabbed a 6 in commercial pvc pipe on my rear and removed the square thin bumper to fit my Rhino sewer hose and fittings wand etc...It was nice.

Now I forgot that I included the hose and I am going away this weekend. I wanted any input on sewer hoses you may have that you recommend above the standard hose that will fit in my rear standard bumper.. Looking for something nice,,,

Thanks Fella's

I had a sewer hose on my previous TT called "Blueline". It seemed like a good quaility hose, was more pricey then the "cheap" ones, and it fits in the bumper. I feel that it was a decent system. When I sold my TT I let the hoses go with it so the unit was ready to camp. I bought the the Rhinoflex when I got the Jayco based on good reviews, a nice system but as said will not fit in the bumper.

Has anyone used Polychute sewer hoses? I have just purchased a x17z and I am thinking about getting up one of these.

I used my dremmel and cut off 2 of the "ears" on the Rhino and it fits the bumper perfectly.

I have used quite a few cheeper sewer hoses and you get what you pay for. on last TT I got the Blueline kit and really like it but hose fits in bumper but fittings have to go in a bag , box or something they wont fit in bumper so I got a small rubbermaid tub and keep all sewer stuff in there works fine for me.

We also use a small sealed box to hold sewer fitings.

On my previous TT the rear bumper was really rusted and I did not want to run the risk of damaging the sewer hose. When we got the new TT I bought a vinly fencepost and made a sewer hose carrier that I strap on top of my rear bumper. I bought a large enough post so i do not need to remove any fittings.

Here's my Rhino storage. I use the vinyl gutter for a ramp to hold the hose while connected, too.
