Sewer hose storage

I bought one of those sewer hose storage pipes at CW last time I was there. After looking for a good place to put it, I finally decided to mount its on the rear bumper. I just have it snug in there right now with some heavy duty tie wraps, but will mount it permanently to the frame if I like it. I will also add another one right next to it for my other hose. Photo is hard to see, but down on the bumper, bottom left you can see the cap for it.

That is similar to what I did on our 2015 ACE 30.1. Works very well for me. Jim.

Hey Jim, did you screw yours into the frame, or strap then on with some type of bracket?

I just used some heavy duty straps and used them to tie it to the frame. Sorry, I am technicaly chalenged so no pictures. I turned the tube so the built in feet were against the frame and mounted to the passenger side frame rail. I also angled it so the rear is the lowest point and the cap just peeks out from under the bumper. I actually mounted a shorter tube on the driver side rail the same way except horizontal. This is my "extra" sewer hose just in case there is a long run to the hook up or I damage my main hose. This one is harder to acess but I have never yet had to use it so not a problem. Jim.

Like many of you, I bought a second "shortie" stinky slinky for the dump station as many times, I don't need a 10ft'er, and a shorter one makes it a lot easier.

But where to put it?

I had originally thought of just drilling a hole in the side of the coach and installing one of those doors, like this:



I still may do this, but I found that I can put both the 10ft and 5ft hoses into the 4" square tube bumper on my coach. I put the 5ft'er in front and the 10ft'er I can get to from the passenger side of the coach if I need it.

I am going to add a second tube also, I carry two hoses because I have a mid grey tank also....but lately I have found it easier to just leave that tank closed, and move to hose over to dump it when needed.

Not sure about the length of you bumper, but on my prior SunSeeker I was able to get 2 ten foot hoses connected end to end in the bumper.

If you have the bath & 1/2 like we do on our 34E that front tank is a black/grey combo tank since the kitchen sink, bath sink and toilet all dump into the same tank.

Nice!

I was wondering where to install those tubes when they were on sale at CW! I found some spots that involved having to crawl under the coach to get to them!

I think I will assimilate your wisdom onto my hitch!

The hoses have lived in the left front storage bay, taking up the entire bay in a bin. Now an entire storage bay will be liberated!!

Update: Just checked the little skid-plates on the hitch. Apparently at some time I have driven down some steep driveways because the steel is a little scraped. That may lead to lost hoses if the tube gets accidentally crushed, perhaps?

That's why I have started to leave that grey tank closed...that way I get a better/cleaner dump probably since it is combined grey and black tank!,
