Sewer Hose Support

Does anyone know of a good sewer hose support? I have the Camco Sidewinder that's plastic and pretty delicate. Several of the hinges have broken and I've only used it a handful of times. I'm looking for something a bit more durable. Love the concept though - makes setup much easier!

I use the same one. Wish it was tougher too, but haven't seen any options I like better.

I too use a plastic one, however I have seen some people with metal ones at the campground. This brings up another subject(not to hijack the thread)but on my 32TSBH, the shortest distance to the cg drain always seems to run right through my outside shower area! In order for it not to, I had to buy an extra 20 feet and run it behind the tires then out. What a PIA that is crawling on the ground behind the tires and getting it to set up on the support!

Camco makes an aluminum folding support, and there is one on ebay at the moment for 35.00. I have one, as well as a sidewinder. The Camco aluminum is great, except that it is straight (cannot be curved), and is fairly short when unfolded (about 5-6 ft). I use it unless I need either a longer one or must have some curves to reach the drain.

I have used a piece of 4 inch PVC split down the middle. I have a several "troughs" of varying lengths, like a 6, 5, 4, and 2 foot lengths. They store stacked together when travelling. I cut eight cradles coped out of 2X6's about 6 inches ling. Tgey easily stack in a small rubbermaid witha dozen 2X4 blocks. I can shim the troughs to the best incline with the assortment, vary the lengths of the troughs, change the directions of the troughs to avoid obstacles, clean them up easily, and guarantee support that dousnt allow thr hose to bend, twist, hump up, or fall with surges, etc. To wash up, I take my clean-up water hose and spray the sewer hose out as I hold it upfrom the trailer end. The hose stays in the trough and no mess for me.

Another vote for rain gutters. I always thought I invented that one. Been using them since '99.
