Question Fresh and Black water hoses ??

I store the Black water hoses in a plastic storage box inside the hookup compartment. I keep the fresh water hose and filters inside another storage box in a separate compartment. I was wonder about putting the two storage boxes in the same compartment ? Any thoughts are appreciated.

Bill

Well most fresh water fills are right near the black tank dump?? I never understood that?? I always run water thru my fresh water hose before hooking to coach. But I store fresh water hose in separate compartment. I always hook the two ends of my fresh water hose together when stored.

Bill, I suppose it could fall under personal preference. I store my sewer hose and attachments in a hard plastic box with a secured lid in a completely different compartment from any fresh water components. I don't want to run any chance of the fresh water being contaminated....I use a separate hose to hook up my black tank flush...not my fresh water hose. I also pour bleach on a new water connection prior to hooking up and wear disposable latex gloves when handling the sewer connections. Maybe it's just me.

I keep the fresh water hose in a separate compartment. Hook it up first and disconnect it first before handling others. Separate hose for black flush of course.

I also don't hook up to fresh water unless going to be wherever we are for awhile. I trust my water supply more than those of others.

I also keep the fresh and utility hoses separate. I have a specific, 4 ft hose for the black tank flush. Stored in separate tubs with ends joined, but the tubs are in the same bay. I have all my water hoses set up with quick connects, brass on the fresh line and plastic on the utilities, and the fittings are reversed between the fresh and utility so you have both a visual and material mismatch if you try to connect my fresh hose to the tank flush, and vice versa. 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.

I don't like the idea of the sewage hose being in any of my bays so I made this.

Yup, lots of those on a lot of coaches. I've got three on mine. Sewer hoses, rolled up sunscreens, collapsed flagpole. There were a few threads on this subject in the Newmar Owners section last year. Good idea!
