Rhino sewer hose and Dual Flush pro

Just looking for opinions on the Rhinoflex hose and the Dual Flush pro. We are complete newbies when it comes to this, never had a "bathroom" in a camper before.

Our 17Z came with a sewer hose, but it looks fairly cheap. I don't really care for the storage compartment, so I am planning to store it on the bumper. I saw a thread on here using a vinyl fence post, looked like an easy project.
Is the Rhinoflex a good choice? The Dual flush pro seems like a good thing to have, just want to see if anyone has any experience with it.

I have both of those items. I give the Rhinoflex a big thumbs up for performance and quality as most seem to on these forums. The hoses that come with the starter kits when you buy a trailer are usually cheap and low quality. The Flush pro is OK to backflush and fill the tank as well as see what`s coming out with the clear section. It is fairly slow though in filling the tank, and I suspect there is not much spray action actually occurring inside the tank like there would be with a wand placed down the toilet or tornado sprayer mounted on the tank. But it does the job as a backflusher and after 3+ years I have had no issues using the flush pro during the season and the wand after the season for a final cleaning.

X2 on the rhino hose.

I also had a dual flush, but quickly installed a Quickie Flush. I much prefer the Quicky Flush, and appreciate not dragging a hose and wand into the TT. I installed the QF DIY and it took all of 20 min and was a very easy install.

The Rhino hose fits inside my bumper, didn't need to make the fence post mod.

I agree the wand is not the best or easiest option, just never got around to installing one of the other rigs.

Thumbs up for Rhino. I have been using mine for 2 1/2 years continuous and it is holding up perfectly.

I agree with the others on the Rhinoflex. Very tuff hose and stores easy.
In the past, I've installed both the Tornado tank rinser and the Quickie Flush. I much prefer the performance of the QF over the Tornado. Prior to installation, I drill out the spray hole in the QF to a larger size to allow a higher flow of water.

FYI, if you decide to install a black tank rinser you will still want a clear elbow, either 90* or 45*, to attach between the TT and sewer hose so you can monitor when the water starts to run clear out of the tank when rinsing.

Sounds like its a go on the Rhinoflex. I like the Quickie flush idea, wouldn't have to haul it around. Is this what you are talking about? http://www.amazon.com/Camco-40123-Qu...s=quicky+flush

Thanks for the tip on the clear elbow.

Bingo, you found it, that is exactly what I installed and it is great.

Ok, the only thing I not sure of is whether this will work on my tank. About the only place I could see to put it would be on the same side as the drain, which is also where all the sensors are located. Seems like it would spray water away from them, it would still rinse out the tank, but not sure if it would help keep the sensors clean.
