I carry four ten foot sections. I have used all four once, three several times, two quite a bit, and one most often. I have found this configuration to be the most usable.

Like a good camper I packed out what I packed in. Picture taken from in front of my door. How many lengths of hose would that be exactly for me? I had 50' of water hose to haul out and the electric extension cord. It was kind of creeeeepy hooking up the electric over there. LOL

Like some others, I carry about 40' total with various connections to get just what I need. Most of the time a 10 footer is plenty. I, however, have had to use all 40' a few times.

Hi, I carry a twenty foot sewer hose and may get more later. On my very first stop with my brand new trailer, the ten foot hose that came with it was too short. So I would not recommend a ten foot hose to anyone. I bought the best twenty footer I could find at that time; And it has worked everywhere I've been so far. "It's OK to be too long, but never good to be too short."

Our '66 has the rear bath. The dump is in the center of the rear. The few times we have had full hook ups the sewer connection is at the center of our AS. So I pack a couple of 15s. I also made a two footer to just reach my blue boy under the dump. Most of our camping will probably booning but should full hookups increase I will break open a piggy bank and get one of them flush-thru-a garden hose thingys.

Where on earth do you store all that hosiery? What kind of connectors do you use? Does a longer hose mean a longer dump time? I've emptied many a bed pan in my day, but this sewer line business is getting the better of me...

In my case, the hoses all compress and can be stowed in the rear bumper compartment, and there are double sleeve connectors to hook the hoses together. I have never had to use a longer hose, although our "new" trailer has about 100' that came with it, I don't think I want to know why...

My Bambi II has a long, aluminum rectangular storage bin underneath it that runs front to back. I can carry ten feet of compressed hoses in it. The newer trailers have underbody storage bins too but they are typically made out of PVC piping.

A PVC tube mounted crossways under the trailer will hold a 20' slinky - once it's compressed. That's how I carried mine on my last trailer. I'm hesitant to put one under the Vintage unit - just doesn't go with the "look".
That aluminum holder running lengthwise under the trailer that was mentioned holds some promise though...

Buy a FLUSH KING adaptor and that problem will go Away . Thanks to Moosetags I have one and it works great. Just before you unhook it will help flush both tanks and then the hose - works like a dream.

My 2002 trailer has a black tank flush in it which accomplishes the same thing, I would think...tho it only works on the black tank.

Our black tank also has a built-in flush attachment, but it is very weak and slow. However my new Flush King arrived today! And I like that it will flush both tanks.
Thanks for the suggestions.
Janet

So how long should it take to empty and flush the black and gray water tanks for 2 people after, say, 3 days? It seems like we're spending an eternity to get everything nice and clear before heading home, but is that neccessary? We have the buit-in flusher, and just got the Flush King to hopefully speed things along. Am I being unreasonably impatient, and--oh jeez-- anal?

Janet,
I have to empty my black tank every couple of weeks. I flush it every time. My black tank flushing thing stopped working all together after about six months of use. I use something simular to a flush king. It works well. I flush the Grey tank too. Takes about an hour to do both from start to finish. That's from getting the flush hose out and flushing adapter to putting it all away.
