I too had a 4 inch hose holder that was way too short to put my hose in but On a 5er they are hard to mount under the coach. In my 5er there was a large area just outside the frame rails about 16 inches wide about 16 feet long. I bought some 6 inch PVC and a large plastic door. I cut a hole in the body skirt and fitted the door. A 6 inch elbow and 8 feet of pipe with a cap at the end. Then, I drilled 1/2 inch holes on the bottom all along the pipe to drain any residual water and put a 2 inch hole in the cap to push air through the pipe while traveling. It works great and the hose is always dry now. It handles my hose and fittings with ease. I also drilled 2 3/8 holes just inside the front door and I use a toilet paper spring loaded holder to keep the hose from pushing on the access door and popping it open on the road.

We all come in close contact with #2 most every day of our lives and manage to survive. Those who raised children probably have touched more of it than any RVer without kids. What's the big deal? Take care of it and wash your hands well afterwards. I keep a soar dispenser bottle right in the bay, along with paper towels, so it's handy and I get clean on the spot.

I guess the worse thing I hate about storing our slinky is knowing what went thru it not 5 minutes before. 😁

DW and I camped in Nashville and were happily getting ready to go to the Grand Old Opera to see Vince
Gill. Just before we left DW said hey we needed to dump the black water.
I go whistling out to pull the dump tee when the hose came off and it was a bad day! I don't squat down and pull the dump tee anymore! Someone needs to invent a push button operation here.

It happens!!!

I can store 4 of the Camco hoses in my bumper. The elbows and caps I keep in a bucket. I spray lysol on everything AFTER I've washed it all out pretty good, also change my clothes afterward each time.

I keep two boxes of latex gloves in the storage bay and change out the glove every time I think I got something nasty on them... even a drop of water. The gloves are cheap ($8/ box/ 100 gloves in the box). I've used 5 pair in a cleaning session once, just because things weren't going my way that day. Still I wasn't willing to get anything on me or anything else so I kept swapping out to new gloves. Beats getting some illness because I didn't keep clean.

What annoys me is the guy who thinks it's ok to leave his discarded latex gloves there next to the sewer hookups. I have noticed this at a few CGs. Some folks just can't be bothered with cleaning up after themselves, I guess. Pass their mess on to the next guy. Nice folks, eh?
No longer full timing, but still camping 10 days at a time every other month.

Biggest problem - it was always in the way. We have a 14 ft travel trailer with only one small cargo area under the sofa, so space is limited.

Went to Family Dollar and bought a clear underbed storage container with wheels. When camping, it can go under the trailer. When traveling, it can go in the shower.

Liked it so much that I got 2 more - one for water hoses and one for the electric cord. Now, if they get muddy it is easier to scrub out the plastic storage container when I get home than to scrub the inside of the trailer.
