I have a reel and when the hose has been retracted, I put a screw in plug in the end of the hose.

I store mine on reel with my new 5th wheel, however, previous rig did not have room for a reel much like the OP. I have a homemade plywood box between the hitch and front panel of the PU box. there is a 2" space between the box and panel. I used to start with one endof the hose standing up on driver side, thread hose across bed and back and forth till I had 100' in then fasten remaining ends together. did it for 10 years no problem.

NO wet bay here, no room for a storage bin specifically for a hose. I roll it up draining as it rolls and connect the ends and stuff it behind the chair on the right side of the door, behind the co pilot chair. ( although having it riding in the shower sounds tempting), but not enough room there to do that and use the toilet too... we have one of those showers where the toilet is the seat you sit on to shower... to clean the bathroom you squirt shower gel on the walls, turn the water on, twirl 3 times to the right, twirl 3 times to the left, repeat minus the gel to rinse and the whole bathroom and you are clean.

Hose reel with a plug in the end of the hose, there's 10 feet or so of leader hose before the hose starts pulling off of reel

Learned that a long time ago when the TT club my parents helped found had their own park with it's own well, somewhere before 1966 in fact.

Adding to my comments above. My ends won't connect together because I use a quick connect fitting on the RV end. Guess I could rig up another quick connect fitting for storage to enable the ends screw them together...

I use the quick connects. The one on the RV stays, the other is removed and placed in the bay. Then screw hose to CG faucet. This seem to help with drips in the wet bay. Then connect ends together for storage.

That's the way I've been doing it for 25 years.

That's about what I do, but I leave the quick connects on the hose ends and put the extra on the hose bib.

Water hose storage

I use a Tuperware container meant to store Christmas Wreaths in. Perfect size and does snap shut.

I have been trying to drain out our hoses, one on the onboard reel, one or two extensions and one to feed the big ice maker since getting one out then running fresh water on the ground to rinse it and having it come out green.

The reel is easy. Just keep the end lower and reel it in slowly. The others I hang from the ladder or something for a while then coil up and join the ends like others.

On occasion we pour a mild bleach solution in them and run it through.

Yep. Drain, coil, connect ends, store.

Pull them out, bleach the hose bib, connect them, run 20-30 second of water, hook them to the coach.

We also have a flat fabric like Handi-Hose for times we need a longer run. This coils into a flat handheld carrying case. Self drains while coiling, and the ends remain open. It is placed in a 'clean (non sewage slinky related) storage drawer'.

Best to all,
Smitty
