Yes Brian, I've placed one of those fence posts on my rig also. Very handy, but I haven't decided how to secure the end cap. I like your method, where did you get that closure strap assembly?

My last storage bays have notches in them and I mounted it in that area.

It's a child proof latch for a refrigerator. Got them at Home Depot.

Okay, so separate compartment it is. I'll have to look into the under coach option, I like that, and our old motorhome had one from the factory. I also put the two ends of the hose together as soon as I disconnect and use separate hoses for fresh water and tank flushing.

Thanks for you input
Bill

If you keep your toothbrush within 15 feet of your toilet, you will be ok storing the two hoses in the same compartment.

You have built up your immunity!

I also keep a spray bottle of bleach solution in the water bay. Every connection, including the sewer connections, gets sprayed on connect and disconnect.

BTW, I have read that bleach loses its effectiveness fairly quickly once exposed to air, so if you also use a bleach spray, change it out every two weeks or so.

Bleach does have a shelflife. Between 70 to 90 fully effective for 3 to 4 months, however, still can be used for normal disinfecting up to six maybe seven months. For more information, you can check the Clorox website.

Here is our twist: We keep the freshwater hose (and related pressure regulator, nozzles, water filter, etc) in the sealed plastic tub and leave the black/grey tank hoses coiled and sitting unprotected on the bottom of the wet bay. Same but different? \ken

I do not connect the ends of the hoses together after use. I drain them of any water the best I can then coil each into separate 5 gal. buckets to air dry with ends open. I've heard that trapping the water \ dampness left in the hoses with no air circulation by putting the ends together could breed bacteria & mold where letting them air dry limits the probability. Could be BS but sounded logical.

To eliminate all problems, there are some great filters out there. Some you can run swamp water through it and drink it immediately. I still connect the ends of the hose, however, I put 2 tablespoons of Clorox in the hose prior to connecting them. Next campsite, connect to water and rinse Thoroughly.

Let me get this right. You dump black water, then dump grey water, then rinse with fresh water. However, there is still a crowd that thinks that fecal matter can jump from a rinsed hose to a fresh water fitting several feet away. I keep my dump hose a foot away from the fresh water input fitting. I just don't see an issue with this.

You don't have to have an issue with it, some of us prefer not to have them in close quarters and do have an issue with it. Do you really believe your sewage hose is clean because you rinsed it with grey water and then fresh water? Is that how you wash your dishes, just rinse them with fresh water?

The distance between my butt and my mouth is only about 2 feet. I have never tried to move them further apart.... I think we are over thinking this. Just saying :-)
