  • Heavy-duty RV Sewer Hoses- They’re not that expensive and they hold up much better.
  • Spare Sewer Hoses- Keep a 10-foot hose and a 20-foot hose available.
  • Shifting the Sewer Hose- Do not pull or drag the sewer hose on the ground. This will cause it to tear or get pin holes in it.
  • Sewer Hose Support- It may be necessary to use some type of sewer hose support to get a good angle from the RV to the campground sewer connection so the tanks drain properly when you empty them.
