2014 ACE 27.1 sewer hose storage

I currently store the 20ft sewer hose in a plastic bag in the bin with the dump valves. Is there an easy way to mount a PVC storage tube on the outside? I really don't want to drill any holes in the rear bumper.
Any suggestion would be appreciated, photos would even be better

Thanks.

Morning Folks,
I am currently doing the same as you. But I do store my fishing rod holders along the length of the fuel tank. There are some fairly heavy metal supports holding the tank which I attached the tubes to (on the vertical part using heavy tie-wraps, still plenty of ground clearance and easy access from just under the bumper). I did look into a PVC tube for "Stinky-Slinky" storage but the stuff I could find at the time with a large enough diameter was to heavy duty. I have seen people using PVC tube (possibly water/sewer pipe) mounted vertically on the rear ladder and using available end caps (screwed on or bungee'ed)

Tex.

I don't know if the ACE units have room under the frame in the back or not. I used a 4" plastic fence post and screwed it to the frame of my Axis (E-350 frame, not F-53 like the ACE).
You can see details of it in the 2nd post in this thread: Axis/Vegas Mods...1,2,3 Go.

I don't think the bumper on the ACE is wide enough.

We have two of the sewer hose tubes, don't remember the brand, for our slinkys. The longer hose and the elbow and screw adapter goes in one the other holds the extra hose if we need more length. Both are zip tied to the frame with some of the real heavy duty ties. The one we use all the time is on the right frame rail so the end is right under the bumper where it is easly reached. The other is along the outside of the left frame rail under the wet bay. It is harder to get at but we have only had to use it once. Jim.

sewer hose keeper

Ron has attached this successfully to our motorhomes in various ways.
Regarding the 2016 AXIS 24.1
the attached photos show how he used existing holes in the framework..
the end has a bolt across the hole to prevent the hose from falling out..the other end is capped. We have not painted it black, as it would only chip off.
Began with white pipe as original application was on Dorado along side the ladder.
In stowing the hose under the motorhomel, you avoid possible odor, even though we (you) thoroughly rinse the pipe after unhooking ![ATTACH]Click image for larger version
