The old stinky slinky is the decidedly unglamorous side of RVing, but it’s something that every one of us must learn to deal with if we want to stay on the road.
Unfortunately, RV sewer hoses don’t last forever. Oftentimes the hose will leak at either end and you’ll need to decide if yours is worth saving or tossing. Since I’m a frugal RVer, I convinced my RVing co-pilot that we could salvage our hose when one end sprung a leak.
Here’s how he did it.
Tools you’ll need:
- Disposable gloves
- Box cutter
- Wire cutters
- Screw driver
Step 1: Cut the hose end.
First, rinse the hose out (ours doesn’t look rinsed but it really was!). Next, use your box cutter to slice off the damaged end. Take your wire cutters and clip the interior slinky coil that’s sticking out of the newly cut end.
