Sewer Hose storage

I have a 2016 Thor Ace 30.2 A-class.
I hate dealing with putting my sewer hose inside the storage compartment. Anyone have any storage hack ideas for my model motorhome ?

I switched over to a SewerSolution. One inch hose coils up niicely and very compact. The system also flushes the hose very clean.

How does the Sewer Solution do on cleaning the tanks? We need some sort of macerator system since one of our black tanks has a shelf under the commode that drains down and tends to leave deposits at the top.

The Sewer Solution uses a high pressure jet to macerate solids and tissue. Seems to do pretty well, I have never had it plug. The back flush function does put water back into the tank, but unless it has a straight shot, it doesn't really break up anything left in the tank. I installed a Tornado tank rinser and that works really well to break up and get stubborn stuff out of the tank. There is a really great video a guy put together to contrast and compare tank flushers on YouTube. https://youtu.be/dfTd0Slt_cU

Different model but probably the same bumper. Works for me. I hate the idea of having to get under the rv to get the hose out. Replace zip ties every couple of years.

If your propane tank is in the compartment next to the dump bay you can attach a 5x5 vinyl fence post under the outside part of the tank that can enter the dump bay by about an inch. The other end will butt up against the storage compartment forward of the propane tank. Store your hose in there and use a post cap to seal it inside the dump bay.

I'm confused. Assuming it's the same as my 30.1 where else would it go? I've always thought this was the easiest setup I've ever had.

Halibut214 ,.... I currently shove my hoses in the dump bay, its tight, because I don't want to contaminate any other storage bays. I was trying to see if there is a way to suspend a tube under the MH to hold the hoses.

Tfryman, my propane tank is in the front right side and the dump bay is drivers side rear next to the generator.

Exactly where I put mine. The hose fits perfectly under the black water tank as do the fittings. That's why I asked but each to their own devices.

We've sat & watched rvers, obviously newbies or rentals, store sewer hose with fittings, water hose with fittings & filter, & power cord all in the same container, makes me want to barf.

Ours fits in bumper and I assumed all RV bumpers where made to hold the hose. Wrong again.

My 2004 class c had the square bumper that was so useful. Some are still built with them.

Our set up for 2015 ACE 30.2

Used this setup on our ACE.
6" PVC pipe, 22.5deg angle joint, and end cap/locking drop down cap.
Be sure to adjust the generator exhaust off the pipe. 2 dump hoses fit with no issue. I think you could go with 4 inch pipe/hardware but then hose end fittings may be tight.

$30 for the 6" x 10' PVC Pipe
$30 for the 22.5 elbows
$70 for end caps and mounting hardware
( https://www.finditparts.com/products...products-cc600 )



It worked great for us for a 2 yr full time adventure.
As with all the longer overhang vehicles you must be aware of your ground clearance.

There is a thread on the Forum (cannot find at this time) which addresses your question . Most of us have found a way to store our sewer hose under the motorhome. On our 24.1 we have a pvc pipe attached to the under carriage across the back...after I insert the hose in the pipe, I slide a bolt through a couple opposing holes, to keep the hose from sliding out..instead of putting a cap on the end...in doing this the hose dries out between uses.
Many use square fence post ....either works well.

My Hurricane has enough room in the dump bay for 3 coiled sewer hoses.. a black garden hose (to have no possible confusion with white drinking hoses) to hook to the tornado tank flusher, the accordion style hose support... and a box of gloves. Nothing else I would want to store in that compartment anyway.

Drinking hoses in separate compartment for sure.
