Sewer Hose Questions

My wife and I will be picking up our new 5.0TA in 3 weeks. Our only other trailer had a porta potti so we have a few questions about the sewer hose.

1) What length hose comes with the 5.0TA?

2) What length Rhinoflex, Dominator, or Viper hose will fit in the existing sewer hose holder tube on the 5.0TA?

3) What length do you recommend (that would fit in the existing sewer hose holder)? Local shops tend to recommend the 20 footer which is two 10 foot lengths.

4) Do you recommend a sewer hose support (i.e. Slunky, Sidewinder, etc.)?

Thanks,
Mark

I have a 20' Rhinoflex and a Sidewinder. Both work exactly as intended.

Thanks Donna! Is your 20' Rhinoflex actually two 10' sections? Does it fit in the existing sewer hose tube?


Thanks,
Mark

You could always start and make do with what Escape provides, then decide what best fits your needs.

I used the lightweight one supplied by Escape for a good 3 years after I bought the trailer, but it developed a couple holes, and I went with the Rhinoflex, which seems to be very tough and works great. Mind you, mostly boondocking, it does not see a lot of use.

Be sure the hose is there at Orientation. Ours was left out so we bought a 10' at Walmart. ETI sent us the 20' and we carry both; the carry tube opens at either end. Once in a while the 10' one is useful.

There is also a "clear" adapter....where you can actually see when the tanks are clear.

You want your first time to be uneventful!

I just wait until the waste water quits running out the end of the hose, no need to watch it flow through.

Clear adapter, available at most RV suppliers. Also very wise to get yourself a little clip for the stinky slinky storage tube

I don't get the desire to watch.....ummm.....stuff, flow through the sewer hose. I guess we all have our own forms of entertainment.

Foam Rubber Sewer Seal - Camco 39312 - Sewer Fittings & Adapters - Camping World

Some full service sights require one of these adapters to eliminate odors from ill filling sewer hoses.
