I once had an problem where the rubber "keeper" strap for the cover got caught in the connection to the hose so it did not seal properly. OMG what a mess to clean up when all I wanted was to sit with a beer after a long drive.

I once had that happen to me. The rubber o-ring had come off the inside of the sewage hose connector. Leaked all over.

Yes, the "O-Ring" and make sure it's there and seated properly.

Take a look at the female connection (The one on the hose) there is SUPPOSED to be a rubber O-Ring in a Track" around the inside edge.. Im guessing not there.

Just a guess though.

As others have said, check the rubber O ring. My hose had always worked fine and one time it leaked bad when I was dumping. The black rubber O ring was missing. I picked up a 3 pack of them at Walmart and that fixed the leaking problem.

Was there an o-ring on the end of it?

The first time I used mine the fitting came right off the hose just after I dumped , thankfully it didn't in the middle of the dump. I also lost the step adapter the last time I dumped as the dump hole was a lot larger than the adapter and it caught on the edge when I pulled it out and dropped down into the dump hole, goodbye adapter ...wasn't about to try and fish it out.

I've read about someone who bought a new Rhino that was missing the rubber o-ring.

I have what may seem like an odd experience. My Rhino leaked sometimes. I finally figured out that the extra little bit of the end of the hose material that stuck up inside the locking ring area was causing the leak. When I clamp the hose onto the motorhome pipe, if I would position the hose such that that bit was at the back/bottom, it would leak. But when I position the hose for that bit to be at the top/front, no leaking. This may just be an issue of the angles in my connection. But you might look into it.

Thanks for all of the responses. I am shipping the old hose back and getting another in its place. Will fill the grey water tank with fresh water and test it out ensuring there is an o ring and it's in place. Man, I never want to go through that again.
