Sewer Hose Recommendations?

I/We are in search of the ultimate, leak-free, no-hassle sewer hose. Kinda stuck between top of the line Blueline & Camco. Any pros or cons? (please).

I was camping this weekend with a friend and he pulled out a new Camco hose from WalMart - said he paid about 3 bucks for it. I pulled out my super heavy duty top of the line hose from CW, pulled my aux tank valve and sure enough a few pin holes started spraying water. I got to thinking, how many times do I dump in a year? Seams like a cheapo hose could be considered disposable, or at least get more than one use. A good hose costs more than $30, and I think after 1 camping season, it's pretty well spent. I'm rethinking stocking up on el cheapo hoses. Do the math.

Adams Rv here in town has brown hose ,different grades of light blue hose,
red hose ,green hose ,man o man .I use the heavy light blue ,best choice of the light blue. so far they are working very well ,the lighter weight version was not very durable .Im thinking when they are snaked out in the sun ,they bake and get brittle and deteriorate,this is for all brands of sewer hose .Napa
auto parts has grey hose ,Who knows whats best ,Id say change out as needed on a regular basis ,using quality hoses (not necessarily higher priced)

Our experience has mirrored the posts above. Buy cheapie, change often, carry duck tape for the unexpected moments when some kind of field repair is needed.

I agree with peegreen. I've tried many different kinds but they only last a year or so. Now I but the cheapies and get a new one each season.
