RV Sewer Hose Reviews
Chances are, when you picked up your RV from either the dealer or the party selling it to you, it came with a cheap (or no) sewer hose.
You know, the kind with really thin walls that get punctured incredibly easily leading to raw sewage going places it has no business going.
Not to mention those 'awesome' cheap hose fittings held on by hose clamps.
And when you go to put this 'great' RV sewage hose away, it flops around and doesn't collapse into a shorter length for easier storage.
Yeah, fun times.
Fortunately, there are RV waste hose products available to you that solve these issues.

Best RV Sewer Hose
Lippert Waste Master Sewer Hose
First, the Lippert Waste Master RV sewer hose has a revolutionary design. It virtually eliminates the leaking issues associated with traditional hoses.
Second, the Waste Master utilizes a CAM lock system instead of the traditional bayonet style fittings.
The CAM system is the easiest type of sewer hose to connect and disconnect. This provides a no-drip seal between the hose and the RV. Camp Addict co-founder Kelly currently uses this sewer hose.

Portable Holding Tank Hose Upgrade
RhinoFLEX Tote Tank Sewer Hose
An RV portable waste tank will usually include a 3 to a 5-foot long hose. These hoses are pretty shoddy.
The RhinoFLEX tote tank drain hose kit gives you a 3-foot collapsible high-quality hose with a 90-degree clear elbow.
Note: Video shows old style removable ends and translucent elbow
Now that you understand what goes into (or out of) using your RV waste system, you can safely choose which RV sewer hose is the best fit for your needs.
Remember, the #1 thing you need it to do is to NOT SPILL.
That's its job, right?
We recommend the Lippert Waste Master for just this reason, though plenty of souls have used the other sewer hoses we review without issue.
Us? We are gun-shy (well, Kelly is). Whichever you pick, just get out there and use it.

Camp on, Addicts!
He-llllo. I'm the co-founder of Camp Addict, which my biz partner and I launched in 2017. I frigging love the RVing lifestyle but in December of 2020, I converted to part-time RV life. Heck, I lived in my travel trailer for over 5.5 years, STRICTLY boondocking for pretty much all of it. Boondocking is a GREAT way to live, but it's not easy. Anyway, I'm passionate about animals, can't stand campgrounds, I hardly ever cook, and I love a good dance party. Currently, I can be found plotting and scheming whether or not to start collecting farm animals (or plotting my next RV trip!) at my beautiful new 'ranch' named 'Hotel Kellyfornia', in Southern Arizona.
Camp Addict co-founder Marshall Wendler brings his technical expertise to help explain RV products in an easy to understand fashion. Full-time RVing from April 2014 - December 2020 (now RVing about 50% of the time), Marshall loves sharing his knowledge of the RV lifestyle. Marshall spends the majority of his RVing life boondocking. He is the part of Camp Addict that knows 'all the things'. He's good at sharing his technical knowledge so you can benefit.
