I tried unsuccessfully to GIVE the original floppy blue hose ETI provided away several times. Where is a good slinky hose thief when you need one?

My gut tells me that this is more likely a childish prank than a theft. Really, who needs your smelly old stinky slinky unless it is gold plated! I couldn't imagine someone going from RV to RV looking for that "perfect" sewer hose. As to the standard hose, it is working out fine. Maybe one day I'll go the the super Rhino hose, but for now, not the highest priority.

And anyways, if I am going to be so "anal-retentive" that I feel a need to put my sewer hose under lock and key, my black tanks are likely to be empty anyways and I won't need the sewer hose.

I don't know what to think. I was parked at a military "FamCamp" near Spokane. I'm eligible to use these because I am a retired DoD civilian, but it's the first time I've tried one. I got a "boondocking" spot on a hill away from the area with hookups, since I didn't need hookups and it was much cheaper.

There were only two other RVs near me during my stay. The first one was already there when I arrived. It was a ramshackle, tiny travel trailer that I guess the owner only uses for a "fishing camp" on weekends. It looked like it had been there for a long time. He was only there the day I arrived and returned the day before I left.

The second RV arrived the day before I left. It was a tiny, ancient motorhome with windows missing. It was filled with junk, some of it sticking out of the missing windows. Apparently a young guy owned it; I saw him outside a couple of times. The last night I was there I heard him arguing with a woman outside; she accused him of stealing stuff out of her house. The whole situation made me quite uncomfortable, as you can imagine.

So there you have it. All I know is someone took my slinky and I had to buy a new one. I didn't accidentally leave it somewhere because the hatch was latched shut.

Oh good - Spokane can now be famous for something criminal besides our serial rapists and murderers - the Spokane Slinky Stealer!
I take it you were out at the Clear Lake Recreation area - sounds like things have gone downhill since the 70's!
Safe travels Mike!

Yep, Clear Lake; that was it. Nice area.

I "gave" mine to a nice dumpster at a State Park in Utah.

I think the solution is to ALWAYS deploy the stinky slinky.. even if NOT hooked up! No one says you need to pull the valve. When leaving, you stuff that nasty thing back into the tube, close that hatch. And THEN, you'll at least know you've got a stinky slinky when you need it... it appears it's only stolen (MIKE!) when not used?
