Advice on sewer hose, etc.

Bought my first rv Saturday, a 323lkts. I need hoses. Salesman said to go w/20' hoses as they hookup toward the front. Would some combination of 20' be better, like a ten and two fives. Who makes the most durable? What about fresh water? Any recommendations? Thanks rick

I went with a 15' RhinoFlex and it has done fine. I also bought a 5' section but have never needed it. I use a clear 45 degree angled section between the trailer and the sewer hose to see how everything is draining. Any drinking rated water hose will do. I bought a Camco one.

And congrats on the trailer...

A 15 and a 5 sewer hose should do the trick. I like the Rhino's. Get the long 45 degree clear coupling too, as the shorter ones still make it hard to see whether what's coming out is relatively clean or not. You'll probably want to pick up a sewer hose support system too, so you can keep the run flowing downhill. But then again, you may want to wait until you've been at a few campgrounds. I'm amazed at the inventive, and cheap, ways people have solved the issue! I've tried two of the commercial "folding" varieties, and haven't been too happy with either.

For fresh water, any RV/Marine (white) hose will work - just don't go for the cheapest. Those meet standards for consumable water, average garden hoses don't. They should have an NSF certification that they are "food grade". The cheapest hoses, even if certified, tend to leak internally eventually, and swell up like sausages.

I have had the Camco Revolution for two seasons and it has held up well. The revolution comes with two 10' sections. I mostly use just one section at the dump station. I don't remember ever having to use the entire 20' of hose during a dump.

I agree with the Rhino hoses and clear coupling. And look at Walmart for good prices on stuff. They often have the exact same thing for much less than Camping World or some of the other RV goodies vendors. Amazon, too. It pays to shop around.

This is what I use, but I've actually had to use both my sections on many occasions. I think 20' is the magic number for length, and I like that mine is broken out evenly. When it comes replacement time, I'll probably give the Rhino a serious look, but my Revolution has been flawless for 2 years.

For drinking water, I keep a 25' and a 50' for drinking water (designated drinking water safe), and a 50' 5/8" kink-free garden hose for black tank rinsing and other utilities around camp. I also keep a few repair ends and a handful of extra gaskets in my utilities box just in case. I've had hose ends get bent and leak, and have had hoses split, and having a field repair on hand is cheap insurance.
