Here is a waste hose that I ran across on the WWW. It is called the Polychute. I am considering it but the price is up there.
Here is a link.

Polychute

Does anybody have any experience with it?

Don't recall the brand....

.....but it was replaced a few years ago after running over a piece of tire tread and losing the tube.

Replaced the PVC carrier with a longer one and carry two 15' sections.
It's brown......and stiff, must be the good stuff.

Was it brown before you used it?

I measured the inside length of the tube under the AS and its between 45" and 46". I cut off some of my Rhino tube and reattached the connector and it's about 45 3/4" long. I snipped off the plastic ears on the main connector. The other end has the 90 deg translucent fitting and it fit into the tube. The trailer is in storage and hope to take it back in a couple of days to try. Fully extended its about 13 feet long now compared to 15 feet in its original length. It would be convenient to to have two of these tubes to put a 2nd hose and some other fittings. I had this amongst my water hoses in the rear bump tray of my Classic.

Just like this? We just got back from a club campout in OKC and you can probably tell we came through some rain. When I added the 2nd tube, I drilled a hole in the side of each cap to install an elastic cord that tensions the two covers towards their closed position so they won't wiggle open.

My modified Rhino hose now fits in the Airstream storage tube. Clipping off ears off the trailer connector fitting and shorting the tube worked. Granted I have only 13 feet now but I haven't needed this length as of yet.

Where did you get the 2nd tube and was it easy to install?

Thanks

Kelvin

A local RV parts store looked up the Valterra PN and ordered one for me. If you Google for EZ Hose Carrier Black you will find a number of lengths and sources. It looks like even Camping World now carries a longer one in black.

The factory mounted the original using lag screws through the belly skin into a small piece of aluminum backing plate. I wasn't prepared to get behind the skin so I obtained 4' of aluminum bar stock from a local home improvement store. As I recall it was about 1" by 1/4". I cut it into two 2' lengths, pre drilled them and then used lag screws for the tube mounts and 5 anchor bolts spaced along each bar to secure it to the belly skin. I don't recall exactly the type of anchor bolts, but I remember looking at many styles to find ones that would expand flat against the back side of sheet metal. It probably wasn't necessary but for belt and suspenders I used adhesive between the bars and the belly skin. I also added a touch of adhesive to the inboard end caps to discourage them from coming loose.

Thanks, that seems to be a lot of work and if I need an extension I'll store it in the tow vehicle.

I own a 2013 Sport 22 and the sewer tube is about 46". I purchased the Camco 20' Revolution sewer hose that breaks up into 2 segments from Walmart. I used a dremel to burr down the 'ears' on the fittings and was able to to fit the entire 20' segment into the 46" tube without any problem. I originally bought the Rhinoflex but for some reason it wouldn't collapse down very well.

Aren't the "ears" referred to the parts that hold the hose to things? If so, how do you make sure the hose stays on the drains or together with extension hoses? I'd think you'd want to avoid a sewer hose coming apart.

I split a PVC pipe lengthwise. It springs closed enough to hold on to another section and creates a gutter into which I place the inexpensive hoses. I use leveling blocks to set slope.

The "ears" are the 5 or 6 extrusions around the outside of the trailer connector.
I just clipped mine down with a pair of wire cutters. I didn't cut them down flush. I think they are there as grip aids for installing and removing the hose. They don't get involved with the latching of the hose to the trailer fitting.

Kelvin,

I think that is so. Mine is still packed away so I didn't get to look at it before I leaped forward and posted.

Yes, the "ears" sole function is to provide some grip to tighten the locking collar on the hose and to attach the connector to the bayonet end on the dump valve assy. The whole assy will slide into the standard 4" square bumper tube common on white box trailers. I shaved my ears down with a belt sander so that it would slide into the round storage tube Airstream uses. I've not found that shortening the ears made any difference making a secure connection.
