At The RV trip comes to an end with a dirty job: Emptying the waste tanks. There are no differences between RV sewer hoses. There is however a wide range of thickness, damage resistance, flexibility, fittings, the ability to see when drainage has stopped, storage ease, and price among them. There are generally two lengths of RV sewer hoses: 15 and 20 feet. Some RVs don’t have enough space in the utility compartments for longer hoses and you wouldn’t want to carry that used hose inside your RV. You may want to store a longer hose in your car’s trunk if you choose one that’s longer. RVs may not have enough space to accommodate longer hoses and you probably won’t want to carry that used hose around. If you choose a longer hose, you may want to store it in the trunk of your car. If you cannot accommodate the longer hose, consider the 15-foot hose from the same manufacturer.
Thetford Titan 20 Foot
As well as being relatively inexpensive, the Titan is also durable and resistant to tears and punctures. Despite the connector being opaque, users say they would prefer a clear connector to see whether draining has stopped. Furthermore, the hose is not retractable, so you’ll have to use the entire length if the dump station drain is close to the RV. It is difficult to store even the 15-foot Titan when finished for owners of RVs with smaller storage compartments.
A new generation of Valterra Vipers takes over from the Valterra Dominator. A lot more money is also spent on it. Both hoses are 10-feet long, with bayonet hooks for flexibility in low temperatures and can be used separately or connected. UV stabilization, thicker hose, and durable outer beading are all included in the Viper.
There is a difference between a low-cost product and a high-value product. Valterra Dominator delivers value despite its somewhat high price, despite its somewhat high price. There are two 10-foot hoses included in the 20-foot kit that can be connected for the full 20 feet or kept separate for shorter runs. Each hose collapses to 39 inches for easy storage. Manufacturers claim the hoses will stay flexible down to 20 degrees below zero thanks to bayonet hooks that provide a secure, leak-proof connection.
Camco Revolution is capable of connecting to two drainpipes simultaneously, so you can drain sewage and gray water used for washing and bathing at the same time. The adapter is transparent, making it easy to see when draining has stopped. Due to its accordion-style construction, users report easy storage.
Lippert Waste Master
At The Lippert Waste Master is the most expensive RV sewer hose on this list by more than three times. It will save you money in the long run by reducing the likelihood of leaks or worse getting sprayed with raw sewage. An integrated shut-off valve and a clear view port are integrated into the Lippert’s permanently-connected nozzle. Ribbed on the outside and smooth on the inside, the hose makes it easy to clean thoroughly. In addition to being puncture-resistant, UV-protected, and easy to store, it can be compressed into five feet.
