RV Humor : The Black and Gray Water Drain Hose

This may be one of my shortest posts in history! But playing on the internet and looking at some articles around the proper management of the gray/black water drain pipe I found a really great bit of terminology.

The most common RV drain hose is a spring wire which is coiled and wrapped with plastic. It is basically very similar to a plastic covered slinky. They are anywhere from 5-20 feet in length and condense down to  perhaps a space as small as 2 feet long. They normally store in the bumper of the RV or camper but I've since found that the bumpers are really good at destroying the drain hose. I'll post a solution in the near future for that.

But here is your RV term of the day which defines the RV drain hose : Stinky Slinky!
