Camco Introduces Improved Line of RhinoEXTREME Sewer Hose

Wed Jan 4, 2017

148354983572780.jpgCamco Manufacturing will begin rolling out a newly improved line of RhinoEXTREME sewer hose kits in the coming weeks with a design engineers have been testing and perfecting for months, according to a company press release.

Dealers and customers can expect a hose that features:

• An exoskeleton design that bears the brunt of abrasion, protecting the sewer hose from pinholes and helping to prevent leaks.
• A hose that is both crushproof and collapsible
• Improved compression ratio for storage over the previous RhinoEXTREME design

The new hose is constructed of the same durable Thermoplastic Elastomer material and contains UV-inhibitors to help prolong the life of the hose, even when it is out in the sun.

RhinoEXTREME kits also will now feature clear sewer elbows rather than translucent ones, to better see when your waste tanks are empty. Along with the clear elbows, the kits will also feature pre-attached Rhino swivel fittings, a 4-in-1 dump station fitting and storage caps. When the 4-in-1 adapter is removed, the sewer hose and fittings can be stored in most 4-inch square bumpers.

“The new, exoskeleton RhinoEXTREME is truly our most durable and best-performing sewer hose – and it’s 100 percent manufactured right here at Camco in good ole’ Greensboro, North Carolina," Camco Engineer Dallas Eisenhauer says.
