We have a 15' and an extension if needed. So far we have never needed the extension. But at a few of the sites anything shorter than 15' wouldn't have worked. With that being said we have never dealt with a dump station as we have always stayed at full hookups.

Down here they offer to sell you one.....At a fair price.

I added a 64"carrier to the back of my 01 Kiwi 17 that will accomodate a 15 foot hose after we discovered the hose it came with was a bit too short.

One of our favorite campgrounds offers fully serviced sites, and it's only about an hour from home, so we go there as often as we can. The sites are set up such that if I can get the wastewater valves lined up just right with the sewer connection, then the slide will hit the water and power pedestals. If I line the trailer up so the slide doesn't hit anything, then the hose won't reach. Maybe once or twice in 10 tries can I get everything just right. In the spring, I'll have to break down and buy a longer hose.

oldmanAZ - unfortunately, I learned on the road that I should have bought all of those things. Luckily the kindness of campground owners/hosts got us by until I could locate a store to get my own additional hose, sewer, power cord, converter, etc., etc. Of course, I had to experience each one individually at different sites to rub in the fact I should have bought it at the same time as the previous item.

So this all brings up another point. Many of us like to carry extra supplies for those times when stuff just doesn't work. But how many of us check those seldom-used extensions for proper operation periodically?

I had to get my VERY seldom-used 2nd fresh water hose out a couple trips ago, and it leaked like crazy! I spent at least an hour and a trip into town fetching replacement replacement (yes, my original spares leaked too!) hose ends and getting them on the hose.

Lesson learned: Check that seldom-used spare/extended equipment for function and wear every now and again because if you don't, it won't work when you need it!

Me, too! I'd also suggest having a set/package of water hose washers on hand. Having those on hand saved me hours and a trip to the store. At another campground I gave a hose washer to help a fellow camper to stop their leaking water pressure regulator.

My repair ends were so bad, that my new fancy replacement washers (that I carry as well) couldn't even stop the leaking! My hose ends were split too, it was a disaster. I have since purchased a new set of gaskets, and a couple higher quality hose end repair kits to keep in my hose box.

I keep a supply of hose gaskets on a hook in my utility hole. Some times when hooking two hoses together, I have to add a additional washer in the screw on connector to stop it from leaking.

Check out these threads. We modified our X17Z to incorporate this sewer hose holder.
