sewer hose brand?

I seem to remember reading a post somewhere on here about a particular brand of sewer hose not fitting the diameter of the installed sewer hose holder? I can't seem to find it with search. I'm getting ready to buy a hose, what brand does work? Or are there any I should avoid? Also what length should I get ?

Thanks
David J.

I think at some point Escape switched to a larger diameter tube, so you're probably good. A Rhino fits in the tube on our 2017.

ETI did switch to larger sewer tubes some time ago, but not all sewer hoses fit right. ETI used to offer the Rhino hose as their upgraded hose (it is an excellent hose) but they switched sometime more recently to a different brand, at least that was the case when we picked our trailer up in August. The some-other-brand hose fits in the tube ok, but the elbow piece that comes with it does not, and must be stored elsewhere. The Rhino hose is configured differently and all parts fit in one tube. The tube accepts up to a 15 foot hose. We had ETI add a second sewer tube, and carry a 15 foot Rhino (not supplied by ETI) with all its parts in one tube, and a second hose (the some-other-brand upgrade) in its tube as an extension to the Rhino if needed. ETI also gave us the standard floppy sewer hose, which I didn’t realize at the time, and would have left with them if I had. It’s never been used and free to anyone who wants it. Stinky slinkies. Yeah.

Just to confirm since you mentioned adding a second tube - does the Rhino 15' fit into the standard tube with all parts on the 2017 19'?

i actually managed to fit a 15' rhino in the square bumper of my casita 16', only the sewer opening adapter didn't fit, so i was stashing it in the battery box. used the slinky that came with our used 2014 E21 just once, and it was leaking, EEEEW, so immediately replaced it with another Rhino and yup, fits 100% in the pipe on the 21, including the adapter.
