A sewer hose support basically supports the sewer hose coming out of your travel trailer so the it is not touching the ground. In addition it lets you route it easy to it’s final destination a septic tank in most cases.
Here are four of the best RV sewer hose support I have found in my research.
- Camco 20-foot Sidewinder MY TOP PICK
- Snowy Fox RV Sewer Hose Support 20ft
- Camco 43071 Adjustable Sewer Hose Drain Support
- Camco Aluminum Sewer Hose Support
- Valterra 20-Foot Slunky

Camco 20-Foot Sidewinder (Top Pick)
There’s a reason Camco has 4 of the 7 camper sewer hose support products on my list. They make affordable high-quality products for the RV industry. The Camco 20-foot Sidewinder is obviously no exception.
The Camco Sidewinder is made of heavy-duty, lightweight weather-proof plastic. It is made to cradle your sewer hose so that it remains off the ground and prevents potential damage.
There is no assembly required. You simply layout the sidewinder in the path you want to guide your sewer hose.
The Sidewinder’s cradle is deep with a groove that helps secure your sewer hose without needing any straps. Each cradle slightly decreases in height. This creates a downward slope as your hose gets closer to the septic connection. This ensures better drainage when compared to other RV sewer hose supports that are non-angled.
The Camco Sidewinder RV sewer hose support comes in 4 lengths: 10-feet, 15-feet, 20-feet, and 30-feet.
Snowy Fox RV Sewer Hose Support 20ft
The Snowy Fox is a 20-foot camper sewer hose support that is made of durable plastic. This RV sewer hose support has a sloped angle design and has a sturdy and durable base.
It hinges just like the Camco above and is just as flexible around objects. It has a deep groove hose support to cradle the sewer hose without any straps. Straps can be used if you desire. It is easy to set-up and tear-down. It comes with a carrying handle.
Camco Rigid Adjustable Sewer Hose Drain Support
This is another Camco sewer hose support however this one is very different than the Sidewinder above. This Camco RV sewer hose support is rigid and each piece is not connected to the other.
Each trough is simply placed on the ground and the height of each one is adjusted using the stakes. There is a locking mechanism on each end of the trough that locks the stakes in at the desired height.
Camco Aluminum Sewer Hose Support
While the other RV sewer hose support I looked are all made of heavy-duty plastic this one is made of lightweight durable aluminum.
This Camco sewer hose support can hold the hose securely over uneven terrain and includes a strap kit to hold the hose to the stand.
Valterra 20-Foot Slunky
The Valterra is on our list of best RV sewer hose support due to it flexible design that let you get around curves very easily. It has been improved and is now 25% wider and 30% deeper for increased stability
Camco RV Sanitation Kit
This RV sanitation kit includes everything you need to maintain your RV holding tank system. The kit includes a 15-foot RhinoFLEX sewer hose, 15-foot Sidewinder sewer hose support, 100-pack sanitation gloves, sewer hose rinse cap, and a 15-pack TST Orange Drop to keep odors from getting out of control.
Lippert Complete Flow Down Assembly
This is one of the more simpler RV hose support. It allows for a quick set-up. It can adjust to any slope, it is durable and adjustable. It packs neatly in a compact drawstring carry bag. One kit extends to 10 feet. You can simply add another kit of more length is needed.
Best RV Sewer Hose Support Summary
An RV sewer hose support is one of those RV accessories you cannot do without. It not only protects your sewer hose from any damage it also keeps it off the ground and allows for easier waste flow. In addition, some campground will require you use a sewer hose support. I recommend the Camco Sidewinder as it is durable, adjustable, lightweight and affordable.
RV Sewer Dumping Tips
Over at Love Your RV I found an excellent article that goes into the entire process of RV sewer dumping. Here is the video and this is the link to the article. There is a quick recap just below this video.
- Try to wait until your tanks are almost full before you dump. A fuller tank provides for a fuller flush out.
- Before connecting your hose place a small bucket under the RV sewer outlet.
- Make sure all connection are snug and properly fitted.
- Elevate the hose to ensure it all drain properly.
- Empty black tank first than gray tanks.
- Once your tanks are empty add some fresh water to each one. A gallon or so will do.This keep remains from drying out and you are swish-cleaning your tanks as well.
