I did not have a sewer storage pipe on my rig, just a storage compartment. The fact that you can store these hoses and connect th...e ends sealing the hose together is great. After flushing, just connect the ends and make a loop, throw into your storage compartment. No mess.
We just got a 5th wheel and purchased the sewer hose they recommended. We had a bad time with leaking at the fittings and where t...he hoses fit into each other. We went back and purchased this hose and we really like it. No more leaks anywhere. My husband is much happier when it comes time to dump the tanks now. He doesn't mind it a bit anymore. We connect the hose together when we store it like a read in another review and it really stops any odor you may get from the hose.
Bought this package when we bought our first trailer. Being new to all of this, we went with what was suggested by staff and it ha...s worked great. Only problem is that the rubber o-rings sometimes fall out and/or break. Some said that the tabs on the 90 degree coupler break easily, but we have had no problems going on 4 years! Have
considered some other systems, but this is easy and quick! Do get an additional hose!
When we got our Class A, we purchased a hose system, of course. After the 2-10 ft. hoses came apart while emptying the black tank..., the wife went and bought another brand with a 20' hose. But it was no improvement. Mounting the end pieces was difficult and haphazard, requiring upper body strength. The EZ Coupler bayonet Sewer Kit was what we were looking for, bayonet fittings at each coupling, at the RV, between the 2 ten foot hoses, and to the 90° bayonet hose to sewer connector. When I'm not available, the wife, with her more limited upper body strength, has no problems installing and removing this system.
This kit has been great! It offers flexibility with 2 - 10' hoses that easily connect to make 20' using the bayonet couplers (not... an inline sleeve clamp system). The 90 degree elbow makes dumping/sewer inlet hookup a snap. It screws in to the inlet for secure connection. The hoses appear to be very strong and well built. We've used them
about six times and are very happy with them. Highly recommended!
I've owned and used these hoses and couplers for several years. Very sturdy. Simple
bayonet design is easy to use and hook up. T...wo 10' hose lengths provide versatility for
different length runs to the sewer -- often one hose will do it. Also makes it easier to
store two shorter sections in rear bumper storage versus one long hose -- one section on
each side of the bumper. The 90 degree sewer connection is also threaded, which
secure at those parks that have threaded receivers on the sewer. I use a hose support
system between the trailer and the sewer connection to keep things flowing smoothly. I
see no reason to spend more.
As fulltimers we've used this brand for several years and had good success for the most
part however, the end fittings cannot be... repaired once they start to leak or the
connection ear tabs break off. They are glued in. I tried to replace them with standard
push in and hose clamp type sewer hose fittings which didn't fit this particular type of
hose either. You will have to find the screw in style replacement connection ends (one
male & one female).
It's easy to use, clamps together without leaking and stores well. We use it with a clear
connector at the trailer end and are v...ery happy with product. Good color for a sewer hose
too as clumsy me while walking around our RV would sometimes trip over the old hose
as it blended in with the ground cover or in darkness. Everyone sees this hose easily.
Nice Product, everything works well. Parts fit together and all connectors seal well when fitted together. However, one
of the ho...ses arrived with a small leak along the length of the hose and developed another within a week. (I'm careful not to allow drain hoses to get scraped against asphalt or concrete). So the durability of this item may be questionable. (The thickness of the red vinyl hose material could be a little thicker.) I filled the small holes with
silicon calk and this resolves the leak issues. But overall, I like these hoses...
Connections are very easy to make. It works perfectly with my RV, which has very little room to make the connection and requires a... quick right-angle turn. The quality of the hoses is the best I have owned. I like this product so much that I ordered a second kit to keep on-hand as a spare.
This hose kit works great. Most of the time I just need one 10' section, but it sure is nice to have the second 10' available. I h...ave had this kit for about 2 years, No leaks and it is easy to couple and un-couple. I like it so much I bought a second kit for my daughter and son-in-law's trailer. This is a great kit!
First time using the second of the two ten foot sections and it has a pin hole! The first section is okay. I bought this because t...he brand was supposed to be a sturdy product. I will be contacting the manufacturer to see if they stand behind their product.
I contacted Valterra Products after I posted my review on May 8 inquiring about their warranty on my leaky hose. I received a resp...onse within minutes! This was on Friday, late afternoon. An exchange of emails on Monday morning concluded with Valterra offering to send a replacement hose. The hose arrived today! Valterra’s customer support exceeded all my expectations. Excellent Customer Service from a manufacturer is an indication of the quality of their products and the value they place on customers like us. I am sure the replacement hose will be free defect and will use on my next trip.
Pros: Connects easily, Secures easily, Flexible , Customer Support
Yes, the rating for this kit is 18 Mil vinyl and the fittings screw into the hoses.
