A Better RV Sewer Hose Support System

I recently devised my own sewer hose support system that maybe you could use in the place of something that is not doing the job for you. It works better than anything I have used or bought so far. I call it The Flume. Here is a link to pictures.

The link you gave is not good. I get the 404 error "link does not exist".

From your photos on the post it does look pretty sturdy. How long are the center pieces holding the pipe? It looks like those pieces are all glued together.

Each section is 5' long. Because the cement dries so fast, I only put it on the outside joints. That what the blue color is. It does look sort of Rube Goldberg. You would probably not have to glue most of the parts together except those that hold the basic form. None of the 1' poles are glued, of course.

The link now works.

My goodness that's long !!!

My first consideration where I setup is leave room so I don't hit stuff with the slides and second is get as close to sewer dump as possible so my 10" hose stored in the sewer boom does it !

Saw this setup behind a convenience store yesterday. Bet they are wondering where their soda cases are disappearing to!

DarkVulf,

I like your set-up. However, I would make a change.

I would try drilling all the Leg T's and the Legs them self to put a pin in for different heights. I know it is a lot of extra work. But it should pay off in the long run when used at different camp sites over the many years it should last.

Drill each Leg T (straight through) on the lower side of every T. Then drill a through hole every 1/2 on all the legs.

Also - If one should every find the legs too weak to drive into the ground you might think about using spray styrofoam in the center of each leg to help stiffen them up a little.

Tony

Another suggestion would be to drill and tap holes in the tees and use nylon set screws with built in handles.

I appreciate your suggestions, Tony. I had thought of your idea but decided to go with the hose clamps instead. They are easy to adjust. But I probably won't have to do much adjusting because I have preadjusted them all in advance so that each section gradually slopes downward in case I have to use all 4 Flumes on fairly level ground. If I have to lift or lower a leg or two, that will be simple. But I will likely not have to use more than 2-3 Flumes in most cases. Nor do I have to drive any of the poles into the ground because the weight of the hose will hold it all down, and the poles are spread far enough apart so that it won't tip or blow over.
