Hmm. Since I was in a dry camping spot, there was no place for the other end to go. Would attract attention, and someone might just open the valve-- a worse situation than having it stolen imho. Nah, I'm just gonna lock the tube.

I wish ETI included the Rhino hose with their trailers. It is SO much better than their current hose, both in use and durability. I hate to throw theirs away and so will use it and complain until it starts leaking.

My cheapo hose lasted five years. Just replaced it with another cheap one last year. I might have spent more, but the Rhino connector won't go into my storage tube.
I could care and replace the tube, but frankly, I don't.

I have been wondering if the Rhino connections will fit in the storage tube. It looks like it has a fairly large elbow on it. Are the storage tubes larger on the new trailers than the older ones? Loren

Rhino hose and connections fit in the storage tube in Ten Forward. The only thing that doesn't is the screw-in connection for the sewer. That's in two zip lock bags in a compartment.

Standard hose worked fine for me - replaced it after 4 or 5 years when it developed a small pinhole.

My daughter likes to describe a lot of complaints about stuff and situations as, "First World Problems".

My Rhino AND screw connector fit fine in the new tubes ETI is putting on the trailers now. As to using ETI's supplied hose, many parks requie a sealed connection into their system. You therefore end up buying something else to comply. Also, the Rhino makes emptying the tube to the drain much easier. Well worth the few bucks we paid.
