Sewer Kit

We just bought our first Sunset Travel Trailer but aren't sure which brand for the Sewer Kits to get. Mixed reviews everywhere. Any suggestions? Thanks

I personally like the Rhino Flex. But I don't store it in my bumper. Too abrasive inside. I attached a sewer hose tube. Others have made them, I purchased mine from CW.

X 2 on the Rhino Flex. My local Wal-Marts sell them plus the clear 45 degree adapters.

You can also find sellers on Amazon which is a big plus if you have Prime.

I have the Viper brand, same durability as Rhino, but much more flexible, IMHO.

Really like the rhino flex as well, have to turn it just right to fit in the bumper but it does fit! The 45 degree clear adapter is a must, should come standard on every rv so you know when the tanks are clean!

Did your new rig come with a starter box? I have received them with two new campers I have purchased. This time however we received a $25 gift card to CW which is preferable to me as I will hard pipe mine on my seasonal site.

I have two starter boxes I never opened since I saw how cheap the sewer hose that came in it was - that's not one thing you want to worryabout bursting!

I have had a couple of different brands of hoses, and one is like the other IMHO but I do carry at least two all the time even though we have the sani-con system now.

I switched to Rhino Flex after the starter kit that came with my rig "crapped out" after about 6 months. It is tougher, and I really like how it collapses to length needed.

I also installed a Super Tube hose carrier to my back bumper. I store 15' of rhino Flex and the tube diameter is large enough to hold the fittings, including a 45 degree elbow. I store a 10" Rhino extension and gloves in the trailer bumper. This way, I keep all the nasty stuff in the bumper area, near the dump valves.

Yeah, the starter kits are full of junk. Bad sewer hose, really bad toilet paper, low grade sealant. Just junk.

The pressure regulator (45 psi IIRC) was OK. I've gifted a few of those to people who would show up at parks needing one.

We've been using the Camco Revolution and have had really good luck with it. We've been using the same hose and connections for the last 2 trailers and have never had a leak.

As for the starter kits, I use the cheap blue hoses that they put in them just for dumping at dump stations. They are shorter and easier to use then pulling out a 10' section of the other sewer hose. I keep a couple of them on hand just because they are cheap and I don't feel bad if I have to throw one away.
