RVs use two types of hoses — freshwater and sewer hoses. A freshwater hose transfers water from a source to an RV’s water system. RVs also have sewer hoses. This connects the RV to a sewer outlet at the campsite or dump station.
If you experience a leaking hose, you should first check to ensure you have a tight connection. However, RV water hoses are notorious for developing leaks over time.You can’t expect that it’ll last forever. If you notice leaks, it’s likely time to replace it.
Assuming that the sewer hose doesn’t have a hole, it will most likely leak near one of the connections. However, because sewer hoses rely on gravity to send the waste into the dump station’s sewer connection, waste water may run down the hose and drip onto the ground.
You typically can only fix an RV sewer hose if the issue is with either of the bayonet connections. You’ll simply need a razor blade to make a clean and straight cut to remove the plastic piece from the hose.
Next, slide on a circular clamp. Then place the end of the sewer hose connection into the other side before tightening the clamp.
