I have a very small leak in the middle of my sewer hose. Is it possible to patch in any way?

Thanks.

Yeah, I thought of that, but wondered if a more permanent fix is possible. I'm thinking some kind of epoxy, but not sure how that would work.

Heh, saw the movie awhile back BEFORE I bought my RV.

It's such a small leak, though. It only drips slowly IF It's anywhere but at the top of the hose. I get more drips on the ground when I disconnect the hose from the RV sometimes. And the dang thing is less than a year old.

The rising costs of RV parks, and the abysmal lack of anywhere else to go in Southern California (especially around San Diego) has really cost me more than I had planned on.

Just a thought but maybe a piece of Eternabond tape might work. Or Gorilla tape.

I might try a tire patch. But if I saw any weakness the first time I dumped I'd just replace it. Better to be out a few bucks for a new sewer hose than try cleaning up the mess.

You can cut the hose at the leak and install hose ends to make the hose into two sections. See the links below.

My sewer hoses are about four years old and still don't leak but I do intend to replace them at the end of this trip because I feel we are living on borrowed time...if I had any kind of leak I would replace the hose.
