Hose storage

Hey all. We’ve had our 2016 Vegas for a couple years, and I still can’t figure the best place to store the fresh water hose, of all crazy things. Right now we’re storing it in the front driver outside compartment, but that gets too bloody hot after just a couple miles, and I worry about bacteria build up. We wind it into a Camping World plastic hose carrier (looks like a short hole-y bucket). I’m considering just storing it inside under the dinette while we travel. I’d love to hear other Vegas owners’ ideas.

Thanks!

I keep all our fresh water hoses and electrical chords in the flat outside storage in front of the passenger side rear tire (under the outside TV if your unit has one...ours doesn't).

For us: it's the rear compartment on the driver's side.

Rear compartment on driver's side for us. Since buying a Zero-G hose, I just roll it up and throw it in a bucket to catch any drips. The Zero-G takes a lot less space and is easier to handle than the stiff white water hose.

Driver side Rear compartment in a storage bin. I do as much as I can to get the water out before storing them. I bleach them out each spring.

Mine fits perfectly with all connections in the Dump Valve Compartment with room too spare.

Zero-G: is that a "Hose that grows"?

Mine goes in that driver's side front compartment. I always connect it back onto itself. I carry extras tucked into the Vegas 25.2 back compartment. Have never had an issue with mold in Florida or in our travels. Always run the water out before storing.

Here's a trick I learned from a campground in Texas: I carry a small spray bottle with a chlorine mix in the same compartment with the water hose, and spray the hydrant and both ends of the hose before connecting.

Only the sewer hoses in that dump compartment.

I like the idea of your Chlorine mix trick...

I am planning the same. There is room in there but my question is what length of accordion hose will work? Do you think 15 foot would fit?

Thanks

Realized this thread was referencing the fresh water hose. Curious if any of you keep the sewer hose in the dump compartment and what size. My fresh water hose will be elsewhere.

Thanks

I keep two 10' sewer hoses in the compartment with the valves. Room for a pair of rubber gloves and a maybe a third hose if needed.

I don't want the fresh water hoses anywhere near there.

Store ours in the rear storage, drivers side...after disconnecting from motorhome, rinse it out...drain it .. roll it up and screw it together to prevent anything from getting inside the hose. Sanitize it occasionally.
This has worked for me for many years.
