Bill & Bunny, welcome to iRV2.

Some folks mount a piece of 4" PVC sewer pipe from Home Depot/Lowe's underneath, and capping it with a screw on cap.

You can buy them ready made from RV UPGRADES.

I made one for a few dollars and a few minutes of time. I strapped it to my rear bumber with the large, heavy duty wire zip ties.

Throw away that "stinky slinky" and replace it with a clean, easy to store "Sewer Solution".

Use a 8" PVC pipe, it is large enough to store any hose with any end attached. Drill 1/4" holes in the bottom side after you get it attached where you want, to allow evaporation.

When it works, the "Sewer Solution" is good. There are a couple of caveats, though. 1) you must have a water source with sufficiant pressure to power it. 2) If it clogs, it is very messy to recover from. 3) It is slow, so you'll want a 'slinky' for backup.

I prefer the 12v macerator system. More money but more reliable.

For my 'slinky', I use the PVC tube, and laid it in the 'V' between the propane tank and the frame.

On my `02 Kountry Star (like you said, no rear bumper to strap a piece of PVC to) I used a 4 foot length of PVC and mounted it to the undercarriage (parallel to the length of the rig) next to the sewer connection. I drilled holes straight thru the PVC and used a long screw bit to screw it on. The holes on the bottom side also assisted with drainage IF there were ever any residue water in the sewer hose after rinsing. I glued a cap on one end and a screw on cap on the other with the screw end closest to the sewer connection. Made it convenient to get to.

This was easy to do with some slotted pipe and a couple of brackets and end caps. Remember to tilt the pipe a little so it drains well if you desire to wash it out. Its lighter than the ones you buy at Camping World.

Love my Sewer Solutions setup. Had it 4 years - - never had it plug, 20' of hose stores in a very small space, cleans itself, does not spring leaks, strong, no wires, no motors. I carry one 6' section of "brown fountain" hose for dump stations.
