Hose reel

I was thinking of putting a hose reels on the back wall of the back storage, one for the hose one for the electric cord.
I am uncertain if I can attach anything to the back wall that will be strong enough to hold the hose and the cord. I don’t know how thick the wall is for putting screws into it. Anyone have any ideas?

Is it your intent to screw right into the back wall of pass through storage? I wouldn't want to be putting screws through the inside walls. You risk poking holes in electric or water lines.
Years back we had small class C with minimum storage and for awhile I was hanging extra power cord and water hose off the ladder. Food for thought

Speaking also from a position of having limited outside storage: tightly co8iled cables and hoses take up less space; than reels...

Yes I was thinking the back wall but I don’t want to poke through to the outside. I’m not thinking a full wheel just a hose hanger or hooks. I want to roll things up tight and use Velcro to hold it together. I’ve seen Velcro loops attached to a clasp to hang on a hook. Don’t know how to post a picture for what I am thinking.

We bought a couple of hose bags from Camping World. They provide a compact storage solution for the wet part of this game.
Power cables: I carefully coil it in the "juice bay" so that I can simply pull out what I need. As I am storing it: I pull it back into the bay, and simply coil it back up onto itself.
Easy-peasey!

The hose bag would work. I would still want to hang it to free up floor space. I don’t have a juice bay. I take the cord out to attach to the side of the MH.

Those bags can almost stand up on their own...
(Put something up against them, and they'll stay put.)
