Sewer Hose Storage

The sewer hose storage on our Triple E is not wide enough for the new hose I bought. It is about 1/4 too narrow.
I really don't like to carry it in a storage compartment for the obvious reasons.

Has anybody modified or made alternate storage for the hose.
I would really appreciate some Ideas of what to do.
It is the coupler that is too wide and as far as I can see trimming it down is not an option.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

narampa ... here is what I did. I have also seen a lot of folks do something similar. Hope this helps with some ideas.

The square 4"x4" PVC covers for wood posts make a good hose storage. if that is too small, 6" PVC pipe works well.
I didn't do either; I bought a large plastic tote container at WalMart, put all the sewer stuff inside then sat it in one of the basement storage lockers.

Steve's idea was the best I have seen. It was one of the first mods I did. I ended up doubling the storage tubes and use the other one for my ladder.

I did something similar using the 5 x 5 inch PVC Vinyl Fence Post from Lowe's or Home Depot.

I mounted it in the Fuel Tank/LPG Tank bay since both of those tanks go from side to side. It sits just above the LPG tank.

Caps on both ends. One sealed and one which can be removed with a handle.

The 5 inch works great cause it allows room for the fittings.

I'm going to Home Depot this morning I will check this stuff out. I was Leary of hanging anything extra, but now it makes sense.
Why don't the manufacture look at this when they build them.
Never had a class A before but I find it a weak issue on all the units I have had, be it trailers or motor homes.

What type of ladder do you have? It actually fits in a tube?
Is it the ladder for getting up on the roof?
My ladder is partially fixed and the lower part goes into the basement storage till needed.
Yours sounds very neat and compact!

I did the same. 16"x24"x10"h rubber tote with lid. $12.99. Holds my Rhino flex hose and all my fittings.

I hope you have the Rhino hose end covers. I wouldn't want to be around when you opened the container if you didn't have them on.

I Do! I also rinse my hoses well and rinse the bin each time I take the hoses out. Quick shot of bleach/water mix and nary an odor.

I am going to be looking at a storage tube mounted underneath. I prefer all my storage compartments with the exception of the tool storage areas to be free from any type of contamination. I know that most people are very clean but still the Idea of say eating a sandwich in the bathroom does not appeal to me.

My guess would be the GPL ladder which is hinged on the steps and allows it to fold additionally from left to right. It comes with a read velcro strap to hold it together in a 4"x5" bundle and whatever length you decide (the 7' being the most popular IIRC)

I just picked one up earlier this month and added their hinged red top too....
