How Much Sewer Hose To Carry?

We are fairly new at ASing. So far have found 10-15 feet of sewer hose to be plenty. Any experience where more might be necessary?

I only have 10' and plan on purchasing a longer hose as I've found that sometimes the distance between my trailer and the dump hole is longer than 10'.

About 50'

Actually I use a normal slinky for the most part, 15' works in 95% of the situations. I also use a Sewer Solution which is an awesome product. I use this a lot at home when I have multiple "guests" spending time. I only have one place to dump a black tank, so we hook up the SS and empty one person at a time, and just move the pipe and hoses around

10 to 15 feet typically does it for me. I like the heavy duty ones too cause it's NASTY when things go wrong.

I use the 15' hose, heaviest duty you can get. It will still tear, just will take a while.
I also have one spare in the box, in case the unmentionable happens while dumping.

We've had to go and buy more where it is a particularly long run from the connection to our valves and that was at a luxury rv resort. Sometimes it is necessary to cross under the Airstream and that takes a good length of hose. You also would need many lengths to have "full hook-up" at the International Rally coming up in Perry Georgia.

We travel with a regular short length which is good the majority of times. If we cannot connect we back up or pull forward and use our full hookup as a personal sanitation station when we are ready to leave or drive to the main dump station where the short hose is more than ample. Having a connector and extra length could be a convenience, or it could be an inconvenience. If you have room stash another somewhere, it helps if you do not want to get the hose out to see how far it will stretch to know where you can park. We carry a cap to allow a grey hose to connect and have 50' of grey hose to connect for discharging grey water. The size of our holding tank for black water is more than ample.

We have the rhino hose now, it is heavy duty and you don't need supports as it is bendable and rigid and will expand or contract and keeps it's shape for elbows, etc.

You mean you can use a hose...you mean I don't need to use a bucket?

Once worked aircraft "fleet service" in Incirlick Turkey. Not a pretty sight when one of my guys opened the service port on an aircraft only to discover the dump valve had been frozen open. Not pretty at all...it was funny...but only from a distance

I carry 40 feet in two 20 feet sections. THe First has the Trailer coupling adn the second has the connector for the two hoses. I have used every inch of the "40" feet at least twice.

The voice of experience here. Happened to me on an SOB MoHo. The yard stank for a week and a half. Maybe one reason why they call 'em SOBs.

I carry a 20' hose. I've had to extend it close to its max a few times. I never can quite figure out those sites who have the sewer outlet up towards the front.

Jack, I haven't yet had the pleasure of staying at one of those. Maybe they were intended to be pull-through sites, or coming in from the opposite direction, and got altered at some point.

Interestingly enough many are pull throughs, but the utilities are on the same side so I know I've come in the correct direction. I've also run into some of these in back in sites also. So the longer the trailer the further you are away from the sewer line. Maybe they assume that we all have fifth wheels where a lot of the outlets are mid trailer.

Sewer Solution

Just got one of these, only way to go in my opinion, easy to clean, stow and run longer hose. And it will pump uphill! And if you had to you could use it as a scatter gun to learn manners to an unruly campground host, but that's in another thread huh. Check out the afore mentioned link, this thing works as advertized. DG
