I have found it near impossible to use my outside sewage hose storage compartment. Maybe it's just me. It will not take a standard hose with fittings. The fittings are too large in diameter to fit the circular department. Also the compartment makes a turn and it is difficult to get the hose to negotiate it. Are others having this problem?
Is it intended to be used for extra length hose storage without fittings?

You pretty much have to lose the fittings, only a straight hook-on fitting can be in place, and it's the last end to go into the tube.

If you twist (or rock) the hose back and forth as you push it into the storage tube, it'll go right in easily moving past the bend.

I have a 20' Blueline sewer hose in mine. I can leave the connector that attaches to the MH on but have to remove the connector that attaches to the host sewer system. The straight Blueline fitting will go around the 90 degree corner with very little wiggling, requires a slight tug to remove from tube.
Can also use another style hose with the MH connection on with no connection on the other end.
Compartment will hold at least 20' of hose.

With my '06 Ventana I switched back to the doughnut for attaching the hose to the sewer opening at the RV park, sliding the "naked" hose into this fitting. The end that attahces to the coach black water fitting doesn't have to be removed. I've had no trouble with the hose making the turn inside the compartment. I just use a long hose that suffices my needs, keeping an extension and its fittings in a bag in a basement compartment.

Thanks for your replys. I will try what you suggested. I like the idea of using the donut with the raw end of the hose, requiring only one end to have a fitting.

Thanks again folks.
