Seems like everywhere I go I see more people inventing things out of plastic pipe.
Flag Poles
Cloths racks
Table legs
A game with golf balls
What else is people using this stuff for?

Some people actually use it for plumbing and conduit!

Then there are wifi and cell phone antenna masts, custom measuring sticks for various purposes (like how far your slide out projects when open), battery filler systems and tools, props to keep bay doors and car trunks open, and whatever else your imagination comes up with.

I've seen plans for a spacer to keep your slide topper from sagging and for making a low mount for a satellite dish. I also saw a fairly nice tow shield whose frame was made from PVC pipe.

Two things and RVer cannot do without. PVC pipe and duct tape with WD-40 hanging in on a close 3rd. I have one pass through tray that opens out 6' in either direction. On one side of it I fastened down a 5" square PVC pipe that Lowes was selling as a slide on fence post to cover 4 X 4 fence post---for me It os a great place to store my fold up ladder which before always collected stuff on top of it so I could not get the ladder out without reorganizing the basement. Suspended from the top of the same basement compartment is a 5' X 4" PVC round pipe and the rolled up windshield cover stores in there very nicely. A 1 and 1/2 " Pvc pipe with a glued on straight connector makes a great storage device for the awning rod-by using the connector the ring end will not pass through thus the rod does not migrate into the pipe. I have several 1 and 1/2" PVC pipes suspended from the ceiling with glued on caps on the inboard end and store brooms, wash brush extender handles, etc. A neighbor uses the same configuration for storing fishing poles.

The beauty of it is you do not have a mega investment that could be left at trade-in and then start over, Ken,'04 DSDP....

Hello;
I use a 2" X 10 ft. to store my Sewer Solution extention in. That is fastened to the backside of my slide bays, the end is exposed to allow access.
Great stuff....

Ken, I grabbed a note pad and wrote down some of your suggestions. I had a terrible time this past weekend pulling out my fold up ladder due to stuff on top of it. Once, my awning rod got stuck in my slide.
I now have another project. Small dollars and big results. My kind of fun.
Thanks again, Jerry

I have seen bike racks constructed out of PVC pipe that will hold two bikes upright. It all tears down into just pieces when you are ready to leave. I wish I had taken a picture of them.

I use a combination of plastic rain gutter and pvc pipe to support my sewer hose. The gutter is cut into various lengths and the pvc is used as support for the gutters. Inexpensive and really easy to use.

I agree with using a large diameter PVC pipe to store all sorts of long rods and poles in the bay. I used the light drain pipe since it doesn't need to be strong. Recently I used 4" PVC pipe and a PVC end cap to make a housing for my USB wifi adapter which I mounted on my TV antenna.
