Is there any way to store a sewer hose without disconnecting it?

Ideas on how to store the swear are appreciated. It would be nice not to disconnect the sewer hose to store it.

Yes there is a setup made. I didn't pay much attention to it though. I'm sure someone will remember it though.

X2 for the SaniCon. It uses a 1.5" hose that stays attached to the macerator and has a screw on cap at the discharge end. Once you drain your grey water, screw the cap on and stuff the hose in your water bay, while still connected. The hose is very supple, coils up easily and stretches to 20'. I've been using the SaniCon system fro 12 years.

I know that Lippert is working on a hose that stays attached to the rv and stores in a box.
I think that some companys are shipping some rv's with that hose.
I have there WASTE MASTER® RV SEWER MANAGEMENT SYSTEM and it is the best hose I have ever used. You can check it out at Waste Master RV Sewer Management System

You can do it depending on your sewer area. Can you show us a picture of what you've got to work on? All RVs are different.

Why do you want this?
If you disconnect the hose, yoh can drain more water out of it before storing.

Are your valves leaking? If so they have new O-rings for them.

This looks great. Don do you have the box mount or the twist on? It's on my list. Thanks

So what's the difference between FloJet and Sani Con? If you have a portable FloJet why not leave it hooked up? Are the threads on the Sani Con something special?

Also - do you do anything special when you winterize things for winter storage?

Excuse my ignorance but i'm having trouble figuring out what a Sanicon or Flojet is for. I looked at the link above and see that the Sanicon is actually a pump. I guess it would be good if the campground connection was uphill but in all our travels, i've never encountered this situation. What would be the other reason(s) for using these products?

When i read the OP, i thought Suecamp was simply wanting a way to keep a standard sewer hose connected at all times, even for travel. It would of course, depend on their coach's set up as there are many variables.
