Our blue hose from ETI gave one season and leaked. Rhino now (much better) and yes fits in tube when you separate the pieces. My complaint is with the plastic doors on the tube. I'm not rough with stuff, but the hinges broke off on one side and I had to wire that shut, and am being super careful with the other side till we get home. How do you remove the end cap for replacement?

If you have the D&W sewer hose carrier, you simply pop in a new plastic door, $6 online (free first class mail, although that may not apply for Canadian addresses). It's $7.50 for both door and mounting bracket. To replace the bracket, the web page notes: "Old mounting bracket must be removed by breaking the glue bond or cutting the tube before this item can be installed. Use any standard PVC cement to reassemble".

So we too need a new hose -- we have a 2012 17B - and I'm thinking Rhino. Can anyone tell me quickly tho whether we need anything other than this -- and whether it'll fit in our storage tube?

We just got one of those a few weeks ago. Haven't used it yet but I did test that it fit in the tube OK. Looks a little more substantial than the original which lasted just over a year.

We picked up one before we picked up the trailer. Used the stock hose once then threw it away. The Rhinoflex is great. It fits the storage fine.

last year when we went to the Burlington Wa Camping World, the viper hose was both on sale and in stock. So we got it. We also got a 2' extension, which on occasion we have been able to use at the dump station. my recollection is that the viper is a bit thicker than the rhino. I don't know if that makes a difference in the real world or not.
