Rhino Flex Hose

I currently put my hose in a big container. Have seen different mods for hoses but the Rhino Flex is 41/4 wide. I have looked at the pvc and tubes to mount under the RV and cannot seem to find anything. Any ideas?

Camping World sells a sewer hose caddy that is 4.5" across.
That's where I keep my Rhino!

I saw those but they did not have a width measurement in the description or maybe I was looking at the wrong one. A buddy of mine has some 5" field drain tubing he is going to give me so I will see if that works too. Thanks

5"pipe will probably work even better: I have some hose end-caps that don't quite fit...

I keep my Rhino in a 5" square fence post tube (from Home Depot) painted black bolted up under the chassis.

I picked up a 4' section of threaded rod at the same time as the fence posts, cut it in half with a dremel and used some nylon lock nuts above the frame rails (found some existing holes in the frame to poke the rod through). Figured the Rhino and the fence post doesn't weigh much so this should suffice to keep it there (been there now for 4 years).

Instead of using end caps I just drilled two holes through the fencepost and put a bolt through each end. You can see the bolt at the end of the fencepost in this pic:

just cut the lug ears off the Rhino ends and they will fit into the pipe. I did it and it works very well.

Can you store it in the bay where you drain your tanks

That's where I keep mine...dedicated compartment. I condense it down and store it in one of those zipper bags a new comforter comes in. Keep a box of disposable latex gloves in there also with a gallon zip lock bag for disposal of them.

There's no bay on my Class C...
I've only got about 17 cubic feet of outdoor storage available on my rig anyway: finding space for stuff is a challenge.

Yes, and since we have 2 sets of Gray/black tanks, we have two compartments used for storing the slinkies along with the aforementioned latex gloves and additional hardware, fittings, etc.

Here's what I did with mine. Bought 5" square fence posts from Lowe's, mounted them on top of the frame in the electrical compartment. I secured the covers at the back end so all you have to do is slide the hoses in and they fold as they go in. I have covers for the front, just have them off for the pic. Was going to paint them black and may eventually but really didn't see the need as they're hidden for the most part. The hose on left fits if you remove the sewer connection, I just didn't take it off for the pic.

What is a "lug"?

A clump of several partially chewed kernels of corn stuck together by a "lump" of Poligrip.

This is exactly what I use myself but have mounted it high on the outside rear because of my bad back.

I've used a 5" square plastic post from home depot on our current class C and on our previous class A. On the class C it sits on top of our bumper and it was under the class A just in front of the rear axel.
