The Camco Rhinoflex is a good sewer hose, much better quality than the cheaper, thinner ones.

The 15’ Rhinoflex will fit in your Escape’s sewer tube, complete with all the attachments.

We have a 5' and 10' Rhinoflex that will connect together to make a 15'. The 5' at the dump station is much easier to handle and clean. By the time you add the 45 degree clear connector at the tank end and the 90 degree connector at the dump end you're over 6' long. We've yet to use the 10'.

The 5' with the 45 degree connector and the 10' all fit in the sewer tube with room to spare.

Enjoy,

Perry

Andersen Manufacturing 3620 Rapid Jack at Amazon is a fantastic leveler for 1/2" to 4". So far, I haven't needed anything else but it's easy to put a board under it if I need more than 4".

Torque wrench. Bea in another recent post had this to say: "Hint – BRING a torque wrench that can measure to at least 95 pounds. Remember to also bring a 13/16” deep socket."
RV Leveling Blocks, 10 piece (Camping World) for a multitude of things (e.g., struts, under your trailer tongue jack, leveling).
Anderson Camper Levelers and Chocks (but you do have to trim one as indicated). I see where Camping World now has their own brand of these (Item No. 108993).
Chocks, 4 (Valterra from C.W. or from ETI
Camco Rhinoflex Sewer Hose (Amazon or from ETI)
Toilet Paper (see John's post above)
Holding tank additives. We've come across several campgrounds that won't let you dump if you have any type of 'chemical' in your tank so be aware. Have tried several biodegradable types (TankTech Rx, Walex, Odorlos) and, so far, we like Happy Camper the best. (Note: Houseboats on Lake Shasta, where the temps can reach 115º in the summer, have used Happy Camper for years with great results.)

Other items we've found useful:
Camco 17" RV Double Cupboard Bar (bathroom cupboard - Amazon Item 44093)
Camco 17" RV Refrigerator Bars (Amazon, Item 44063)
Paper Towel Holder - Kamenstein's 4554ASB Perfect Tear Patented Wall Mount Paper Towel Holder is the best (mounted on the underside of the cupboard)

I'm curious how they determine that there is a chemical in your black holding tank. That rule sounds like a holdover from years ago when formaldehyde was used in black tanks. I don't believe you can even buy a tank chemical with formaldehyde in it these days.

I've always wondered that as well. One campground by us (Costanoa in Santa Cruz) used to require that your black tank be empty before arriving and 'no chemicals allowed'; however, now that it's become a KOA, I don't see any reference to that on their web site.

What did you have to do to get assigned the job of verifying that the tank was empty?

Another vote for Odorlos; it seems to work pretty well. Remember that the 21 has that long pipe going from the black tank to the discharge valve. It will fill first so that later you may have to add more Odorlos (or other) to the tank; that is, two doses per dump.

As for TP, I've been using the single-ply Thetford that you can buy at Walmart. I've had no problems with it. My doctor cheerfully gives me a prostate exam at every opportunity.

For the toilet paper, opinions vary on whether "RV toilet paper" is strictly necessary, but of the RV-labeled options the Scott RV TP is by far the best (not the same as the regular Scott 1-ply). The Thetford etc TP is OK but annoying. Steer clear of the West Marine "2-ply" stuff, though. It's like sandpaper and doesn't dissolve well.
