Wow you ACE guys have the same issue as us Vegas/Axis owners.

I had built a storage spot under the frame (its in the Vegas/Axis mod thread:
http://www.thorforums.com/forums/f27...-3-go-820.html
2nd post). Not sure if you'd have the same kind of room back there as we do though.

I store my hose, connectors and gloves in the same area as the dump drain and gate valves. All seems to fit in there nicely.

Resurrecting an old thread but for the 30.2 owners here's my sewer hose storage under the coach.
5" X 60" Sch80 PVC pipe
2-Steel loop hangars
4-Galv. Joist hangars
1-6" rubber cap w/ hose clamp.
1-6" aluminum cap w/ lock rod.
Use a 5" pipe as the sewer hose and end connection fits perfect. 6" PVC would be a bit big and 4" would be a bit small.

This is REALLY useful information!

I wondered if it would be possible to build a useful "slinky barn" under there somewhere!

There are already 1" holes in the frame to accommodate some washers as spacers and a fender washer on the inside to sandwich the washers in the frame between that and the joist hangers. I doubled up on the joist hangars as with 5" Sch80 pvc it's a bit weighted and one hangar was a bit flimsy.
I did use 4" hangars on the end of the pipe toward the generator side and 6" on the opening end to give it some slope.

I put mine on the rear bumper. It doesn't interfere with the storage door above it and I don't have to crawl on the ground. Very simple and works quite well for me. I used some large zip ties to avoid drilling.

Great install!! I began with 36" 450lb monster zip ties crossed through the frame holes under the coach but with the movement and shaking around the sharp edges of the holes in the frame would eventually cut through the zip ties so I had to re-create my idea. Your install doesn't appear it will suffer my issue.

Thanks. It has survived for a over a year and trips short and long. When the first zip tie breaks I'll replace them all. Maybe two years or more I hope.
