Trouble disconnecting the Rhino Sewer hose

Hello everyone,

The last 3 or 4 times weve been out weve had trouble connecting / disconnecting our Rhino sewer hose. If we manage to connect it, disconnecting it requires a great deal of effort.

The last time we had to get some strapping young man to help us out when we were at the transfer station.

In the interest of reducing frustration and the likelihood of damaging something weve decided to switch to using the ETI supplied hose.

Having said that, Id really like to tap into the much more experienced group and see if anyone else has had this problem and what your solution was.

Cheers and thanks,
Candace

One idea would be to put a clear "front end" on your Rhino hose, and simply leave the Rhino hose connected to the clear connector. This would fix the issue if the root cause is something on your Rhino hose that makes it hard to connect/disconnect.

Here's an example of a clear adapter: https://www.amazon.com/Camco-Sewer-H...07&sr=8-3&th=1

Vaseline goes a long way for lubing fittings. Put in on the coupling.

Silicone grease on the inside area of the hose fittings where they mate up un the trailer.
Stuff is also good for lubing gaskets.

Rhino hose disconnect

Thank you everyone. I knew there had to be better ideas than hitting it with a hammer!

Solution to the Rhino Hose Disconnect

So our solution was to buy the clear extension AND a channel lock. The combination works so far. Again thanks everyone for helping out.

Absolutely it could work. I checked at some RV stores here and couldn’t find one.

We just ran out of time to order from Amazon. We leave on Sunday for Osoyoos and the rally.
