No one likes to talk about dumping sewage, but it’s an important subject. If the sewage system is backed up, no one will enjoy their trip.

Even though you use a sewer hose to dump the sewage, the sewer hose support protects the sewer hose and makes it easier to dump, as long as you get the right one. So, we took the time to break down six of the best sewer hose supports you can buy and show you a clever way to make your own and save money.

A DIY Option

Let’s face it, a lot of RVers like to do things on their own. So instead of trying to sell you something you have to buy, let’s talk about one way you can make your own RV sewer hose support.

To make your own RV hose support, all you need is a 4″ PVC pipe or a plastic roof gutter, a drill, and a retainer clip, as shown in the steps below.

If you’re using PVC pipe, use a circular saw to cut it in half. If you use a PVC piper or a plastic roof gutter, the process is the same after you cut it in half.

Just make holes about 3 to 5 inches apart all the way through the PVC pipe or roof gutter. Slide the retainer clip through both pipes or gutter pieces to connect them, and you’re good to go.

This way, you can put together as many pieces as you need to make the size of hose you want. Just remember that the plastic roof gutter doesn’t need to be cut, but it won’t be as strong as the PVC pipe.

Still, it’s much easier to move and set up because it’s much lighter. There’s no wrong choice here; just do what works best for you and your RV.

6 Best RV Sewer Hose Supports

It’s fine if you don’t want to do things yourself. There are six choices that can do the job and have some advantages over a piece of PVC pipe or a plastic gutter. We’ve put them in bold below, so all you have to do to find the best RV sewer hose support is read the reviews!

1. Camco Sidewinder – Best Overall

Camco Sidewinder – Best Overall

10, 15, or 20 feet long

Plastic is used to build things.

The best way to support and protect your sewer hose: Camco’s 20-foot Sidewinder RV Sewer Hose Support lifts and holds your sewer hose while it’s connected from your RV to the dump station. It keeps your sewer hose off the ground and protects your RV or camper sewer hose from damage or punctures by nestling it safely in heavy duty plastic.

Setup and preparation are easy: Conveniently ready to use right out of the box and doesn’t need to be put together. Comes with a winding RV sewer hose support and an orange custom-fit storage handle that attaches to a compressed Sidewinder to make it easy to carry and use.

The frame is made of plastic, which makes it light and weatherproof. The frame is also strong and durable. It is made of a plastic that won’t rust or break down and is strong enough to carry your hose over the roughest terrain.

Made to be easy to use and reliable – Deep cradles and grooves hold your sewer hose in place so you don’t have to use straps, which can be annoying. Once the sewer hose support is pulled out to the length you want, it won’t creep back in. This support is made to be flexible, so it can easily bend around obstacles and get around them. Just hose it off and let it dry in the air. Compatible with all standard sewer hoses that are 3″ in diameter

Drainage from sewer hoses gets better –

It is angled to help drain the sewer hose, and its highest point is 7.25 inches and its lowest point is 4 inches. As your hose gets closer to the septic connection, each cradle gets a little shorter, making a gentle downward slope. This makes for better drainage than a flat surface.

The Camco Sidewinder was our top pick for a reason. It comes in three different sizes and has a great price-to-performance ratio. Setting it up and using it is also a breeze.

It can bend around obstacles, and the sloped shape makes it easier than ever to dump sewage. Not only that, but it’s also very easy to clean and easy to store because it can be compressed.

But it’s not good enough. First of all, it doesn’t work well on very uneven ground. Most of the time, you can use it, but if the terrain is too rough, it won’t do the job.

Second, it can be a problem if it has to go over an obstacle instead of around it. Since each piece is connected, the obstacle has to be “climbed,” which doesn’t always work. But it’s exactly what you need most of the time.


Good balance between price and quality

The sloped design makes it easier to dump.

There are three different sizes to choose from.

You can bend around things easily.

Simple to clean


It can be hard to keep level on uneven ground.

2. Valterra Easy Slider Sewer Hose Support – Best Budget

Valterra Easy Slider Sewer Hose Support

Three 3-foot pieces make up the length.

Plastic is used to build things.

The Easy Slider sewer hose support is made of strong extruded plastic that won’t break or bend.

Gives a steady flow; there are no backups or overflows.

To set up, just hook the chain to the tent and adjust the slider to the right length.

Easy Slider comes with three 3-foot sections of chain that are packed in a reusable box that is easy to store.

The truth is that you need a sewer hose support to keep your sewer hose in good shape. But having a lot of money to spend on one doesn’t mean you need one. The Valterra Easy Slider Sewer Hose Support can help with that.

It’s a simple sewer hose support that does the job and costs a very low amount. Just remember that you aren’t getting good sewer hose support. It can only hold smaller hoses, and you can’t bend it around obstacles.

Still, it’s a great deal at this price. It is easy to use, clean, and store. Even though it’s not the best of the best, you can get it for the best price.


Very affordable

It comes with a box that is easy to store.

Very simple design


Not very long—it can only hold hoses that are 10 feet long.

You can’t shape it to go around obstacles.

3. Camco Aluminum Sewer Hose Support – Premium Choice

Camco Aluminum Sewer Hose Support

15 feet long

Construction Material: Aluminum

Holds a sewer hose up to 15 feet long securely on uneven ground.

All-aluminum stand that is light and strong, with easy-to-use handles

Comes with a strap kit to keep the hose in place.

It only takes seconds to set up and put away.

Compresses to just 11.5″, making it easy to store, and it won’t close on its own while being used.

One of the most important and sometimes expensive parts of RVing is the sewer hose, so you don’t want to skimp on the sewer hose support. With the Camco aluminium sewer hose support, you get a product that is very strong and can be used in almost any situation.

You get not only the sewer hose support, but also a strap kit that is already attached for even more stability. It is made in a way that works well on uneven ground, but it doesn’t climb over obstacles very well.

But the hose can be bent around obstacles, which makes it a very flexible choice. Even better, it folds up to just 11.5 inches, which makes it easy to store, and it has handles on both sides, which make it easy to set up and store.

It is sloped, like the best sewer hose supports, to make it easier to dump. It can only hold up to a 15-foot hose, though. Most of the time, this is enough, but you might have trouble if you use a full 20-foot hose.


The design of aluminium is very long-lasting.

Includes a strap kit to make the hose even more stable.

Works great on rough ground

Compresses down to 11.5 inches, making it easy to store.

The sloped design makes it easier to dump.

It’s easy to move and use since it has handles.


More expensive option

It can only hold hoses up to 15 feet long.

4. Camco Adjustable Sewer Hose Drain Support Kit

Camco Adjustable Sewer Hose Drain Support Kit

Length: Six pieces of 2.5 feet

The supports are made of plastic, and the stakes are made of aluminium.

The sewer hose is lifted and guided by a flexible support to help waste move downhill.

Six separate troughs can turn or go over curbs or other obstacles.

Can be stacked for extra stability, but doesn’t need to be staked; works on concrete

Nests so it’s easy to store

Each of the six 30-inch sections has four stakes to hold up to 20 feet of sewer hose.

The Camco Adjustable Sewer Hose Drain Support Kit is a great choice if you’re looking for a great sewer hose support. It works with hoses up to 20 feet long and can be stacked to save space.

But the best thing about this set-up is that you can use stakes to climb over obstacles on uneven ground. You can make your own slopes to get the perfect drain, and you can work around obstacles on more solid terrain.

If you’re on concrete, you don’t have to use the stakes, but then you can’t slope towards the drain. Even though that is one reason why this product fell out of our top three, there are two other reasons why it didn’t stay there.

First, it costs more than the other choices. If price is more important to you than value, this isn’t the product for you. Second, setting it up can take a little longer. This setup slows things down a bit for people who want to get rid of their waste quickly and move on.

It can be done, but it can take a little longer to get the right slope without extra holes that can collect sewage.


It works with hoses up to 20 feet long.

It’s easy to store because it can be stacked.

You can use stakes on uneven terrain

On firm ground, you don’t need to use the stakes.

It comes with a bag to carry it in.

Makes it easy to get over obstacles


More expensive product

Setting up can take a little longer.

5. Valterra S2000 Slunky

Valterra S2000 Slunky

10, 15, 20, or 25 feet long

Plastic is used to build things.

RV SEWER HOSE SUPPORT: The raised design keeps your drain hose in place and helps it drain better.

DESIGN IMPROVEMENTS: 26 percent wider and 30 percent deeper for more stability and a smoother RV experience as a whole.

RIDGED BOTTOM: This RV hose holder has a rough bottom that helps it stay in place in grass, gravel, and other surfaces.

FLEXIBLE DESIGN: The support is flexible, so you can bend it around obstacles. Metal hinges give it more strength and make it last longer.

IDEAL FOR DRAINAGE: This 20-foot hose support is 4.5″ tall at the sewer end and 7″ tall at the RV end to keep the right angle for draining.

The Valterra S2000 Slunky looks a lot like the Camco Sidewinder, but don’t let looks fool you. The Slunky does have serrated edges that help it work on uneven surfaces, but the whole thing is just a little too weak.

If you’re not careful, you’ll break the hose support, which is more than a little disappointing given how much it costs. Still, as long as you’re careful, there’s no reason why the S2000 Slunky can’t get the job done.

It comes in four different sizes, the largest of which is an impressive 25 feet, so it can handle any sewer hose. Not only are they longer, but their design is so wide that the sewer hose can’t slide over the edge.

The sloped design of all four sizes makes it easier to dump, but just like the Camco Sidewinder, it can’t climb over obstacles. But in the end, the price is what really turns us off. The Slunky is near the bottom of our list because it is less sturdy than the Sidewinder and costs more.


There are four different sizes of it.

The sloped design makes it easier to dump.

The support can hold on better because its feet have teeth.

Wide design works with almost any sewer hose


The design seems a little too weak.

Costs too much for what you get

6. Titan RV Sewer Hose Support

Titan RV Sewer Hose Support

Length: 5 pieces each 2 feet long

Plastic is used to build things.

Easy to set up and easy to change. Ready to use, with no small pieces to lose

Simple and quick tear-down. Storeable in the bag that comes with it

Poly construction makes it last. Washable and with no parts that rust.

Five steps of 24″ each. Set up so that it can hold up to 15 feet of sewer hose

It works with Titan Sewer Hose Systems and other hoses.

The Titan RV Sewer Hose Support is the last item on our list. When you look at the Titan RV sewer hose support, you get a simple setup for supporting the sewer hose, but you pay more for it. It can only hold a 15-foot-long hose, and it doesn’t work well on uneven ground.

But even with these problems, it was still on our list for a reason. First of all, it is very simple to set up and use. If you’re like us, you won’t do something if it’s too hard. With the Titan, it’s as easy as it gets.

Second, each piece stacks on top of the other, making it very easy to store and move around. Third, each of the five sections is a slightly different height, which makes a natural slope that helps with draining.

Lastly, the whole thing is very easy to clean and wash. So, this might not be the best way to set things up, but it is the easiest.


Setup and use are simple.

It’s easy to store because it can be stacked.

Five steps make a nice slope that drains water well.

Easy to clean and wash


It doesn’t work well on surfaces that aren’t flat.

It can only hold a 15-foot hose.

It costs more for what you get.

Final Thoughts

Getting the right support for your sewer hose is important if you want to keep it in good shape and have a clean, easy dump. Even though you can get by for a while without one, it only takes one bad place to dump to ruin your sewer hose and cost you more money.

So, get a sewer hose support before you go on your next trip. It could save you a lot of money.
