One thing that’s going to save you from a lot of dirty work on your RV trips is what’s known as an RV sewer hose. Instead of constantly having to empty the waste tank, you’ll have a hose connected straight to the drain.
Imagine an RV life where your super smelly feces slowly floats straight down the drain? It’s kinda like magic to be honest.
In this blog post, I’ll take you through what I think are the 10 best and toughest RV sewer hoses. So, let’s not waste more time, put on our Scuba masks, and dive in.
1. Camco Revolution
Let’s cut the BS… a sewer hose is just a sewer hose. There’s not a huge difference between the hoses on this list. However, it’s really the features and the price that sets this Camco Revolution apart.
It’s fully adaptable so you can use it either as a 20-foot hose or a 10-foot hose. Just loosen the connection in the middle of the hose and you’re good to go.
A thing to note is that on the pictures, there’s 4 lines of threading on each level for the RV sewer inlet but on the actualy product there’s only 2 lines. I didn’t find it to be such a big problem though.
- Lots of adapters
- Heavy duty
- Easy to hook up
- Tough to clean
- 2 threads on ring adapter
- Easily retracts if stretched
2. Camco RhinoFLEX
These aren’t the floppy, slinky hoses that are a pain to wrankle and fit. You won’t have to wrestle with a hose just to empty the waste tank.
These guys stay in place. They’re super stiff and sturdy, and they don’t suddenly lengthen or collabse. Lots of camp grounds have bumps and holes, and the RhinoFLEX aces the job every time.
The RhinoFLEX comes in 4 different sizes ranging from 5ft to 20ft and costs anywhere from $20 to $50. There’s almost no hose out there that can beat it in terms of quality and price. Hands down.
- Durable hose
- Easy to collapse
- Relatively cheap
- Tighten before use
- Snug bumper fit
- Leaky connections
3. Valterra Dominator
The Valterra Dominator is a lot like the RhinoFLEX. It’s extremely sturdy and durable, and it also comes with two 10ft hoses that you can either use separately or together. It also fits practically any sewer system because of its universal adapter.
When you’re done with the job, each hose collabses to just 39 inches which makes it ridiculously easy to store in your RV.
To properly clean the Valterra Dominator you’ll have to extend it all the way out to prevent wastewater from getting trapped in the creases. But overall, it’s an awesome RV sewer hose, and you’ll definitely be happy with it.
- Remains extended
- Sturdy construction
- High elbow for good vision
- Tough to rinse
- A pain to assemble
- Not very flexible
4. Lippert Waste Master
You might be surprised by the relatively high price point. However, don’t get fooled. The Lippert waste master isn’t your ordinary sewer hose. It’s a fully functional waste management system.
What’s cool about it is the helical coil on the outside of the hose so debris doesn’t get stuck inside. It also has a nozzle with a clear view port and a shut-off valve.
I’ve had my hands on it a few times, and I’m absolutely sold on it. The only reason it’s not landing the first spot on this list is because it only collabses to about 5 feet which makes it quite tough to store in smaller RVs.
- Very secure fit
- Easy to clean
- Clear view port
- Not easy to pack
- Orange closing insert is loose
- Pricey, pricey, pricey
5. Valterra Silverback
The Valterra Silverback RV sewer hose comes in two 10ft hoses that each collabses to 38in and can be connected with the sturdy rotating fittings.
There’s a 90° ‘4 thread’ fitting that works perfectly for the deeper sewer inlets at some parks, plus a clear adapter to make sure that your tank is indeed empty.
If you want a hose that’s puncture resistant, flexible, and cheap then the Valterra Silverback might be the hose for you. It’s fully functional in degrees ranging from 150 degrees Fahrenheit down to -4 degrees Fahrenheit so wherever you go it’ll do the job extremely well.
- Virtually indescructible
- Great for hotter climates
- Flexible down to -20°F
- Lasts for ~100 uses
- Won’t stay collapsed
- Inside of hose isn’t smooth
6. Camco Deluxe
I know what you’re thinking… not another Camco hose, right? Well, you’d be surprised how great RV sewer hoses they produce. This one comes in 5in, 10in, and 20in so there’s plenty of options in terms of length.
What I really like about the Deluxe version of the Camco sewer hose is the fact that you get a deluxe 10in hose for just $21 and a 20in hose for $52.
It comes with a 4-in-1 adapter that’s compatible with pretty much all sewer inlets, and if you remove the adapter it’ll fit inside a 4in square bumper.
- Made in the US
- Clear ends for good visibility
- Coming in at $50
- Might be shorter than 20′
- Lack of quality control
- Won’t stay stretched
7. Camco RhinoEXTREME
We’ve already covered the Camco RhinoFLEX. Now it’s time to look at the RhinoEXTREME which is pretty much just the RhinoFLEX but on drugs.
It has all the features that RVers are looking for in one simple kit. And you honestly won’t find any hose that’s tougher than this one. It won’t crush and it utilizes a TPE technology that makes it resistant to abrasion and pinholes.
Furthermore, it has 1.592 Amazon ratings with 4.8 stars out of 5 which tells me that other people like it just as much as I did when I had it.
- Practically unbreakable
- All you need in one kit
- Cheap compared to quality
- Tough to fully collapse
- Won’t fit in standard bumper
- Difficult to separate
8. Thetford Titan
The Thetford Titan truly lives up to its name of being a titan. It comes in at $40 for a 15ft rv sewer hose. There’s no options in terms of length. However, it stretches a ton and can be collabsed and packed away easily.
The material on the Thetford Titan is much thicker than on many other hoses, and it’ll handle heat and sun like it was piece of cake. It’s worth the extra $.
I’ve read several reviews on Amazon saying that they’ve dropped heavy items on top of it, and it didn’t even leak. Heck, it fully recovered the next day.
- Made in the US
- Thicker materials
- Includes 5-in-1 adapter
- Tough to store
- Elbow might pop off
- Needs to be wrestled
9. Camco Black
Now for a hose that I’ve had for quite a while. It’s not as durable as the other hoses on this list but it’s by far the cheapest. It comes in at $20 for 10in of hose. It’s really the only size you can choose on Amazon but 10in has been fine for me.
If that’s not your thing, you can buy a 10ft extension hose and connect it to the Camco Black. However, remember that the shorter the hose is, the easier it is to flush out.
If you’re looking for a super cheap and ready to use sewer kit, then this is the one I’d recommend you to try out. Give it a shot and let me know what you think.
- Cheapest on the list
- Includes 4-in-1 adapter
- Fits almost all pipes
- Not the most sturdy
- Comes in a little short
- Won’t fit all bumpers
10. Prest-O-Fit Ultimate
Now for the last RV sewer hose on this list, the Prest-O-Fit Ultimate. It comes in at $40 for 25in, and can be purchased in 4 different sizes: 5in, 10in, 17in, and 25in.
What’s cool is that you won’t need any clamps, tools, or threading your hoses. It comes with Pushover Quick Connectors which lets you push the connectors together. It sounds nimble but it works very well.
It’s also made of heavy-duty vinyl which makes it very durable – it’ll last you a long time regardless of the weather you’re camping in.
- Tight connections
- Fits in almost all bumpers
- Comes in at $40
- Lacks quality control
- Won’t last long
- Design could be better
Final thoughts on RV sewer hoses
Choosing your next sewer hose for your RV most likely won’t be on your top10 most interesting purchases you’ll make in your life.
However, choosing the right sewer hose comes in handy next time you’ll empty your waste tank. Imagine not having to have your hands covered in poop again?
When choosing a sewer hose, consider:
- Whether or not the price fits into your budget
- The quality and durability of the hose itself
- Whether or not it’ll fit your RV and the sewer inlets you’re using
