Stowing the sewer hose!

What's the worst thing you hate about stowing your sewer hose?

I agree. My Cambria had a tube for storing the hose. great idea but tube was to small in diameter. You could not store it with the end connectors on the hose. The same holds true for my new Winnebago Trend.

I guess the fact that it's a SEWER HOSE!

My Rhino hose has caps for each end so once I compress it and put both caps on it's not as big a deal as it used to be.

The RV Sanicon works great - just put the cap back on the end of the hose, no stinky issues to deal with...always sealed.

My preference is to use 2 sections......or 3 sometimes.....makes handling much easier....when I disconnect each section, I just connect each hose to itself....your left with a no leak, no smell and easier to handle section.

The worst thign is the bumper storage tubes are usually too small, There is, however, a fix, in many cases.

My RV did not come with hose storage.. So initially I put a 4" pvc pipe under the frame,, Nice, but alas... Too small, hose goes in but you need to take the ends off.

So I put a 6" pipe, holds hose and ends, on most of them this includes the elbow end.

And a 7" Fence post. this is square, I like it best, it holds my Smart Hose, (Without the elbow end but they are super easy to remove and replace on the Smart hose)

I don't hate anything about storing my slinky. It's part of a lifestyle I like, kinda like taking out the garbage at home is part of having one.

I like to have two hoses as well just incase. Not much room in the compartment area after you poke two stretched hoses back in.

Winne should just put in a larger tube. 6" sound good. With a small class C there is no sanitary compartment. The drain pipe comes out under the coach.

At one time we had a 2002 Coachmen Class C. I used the following part on the ends of the hose and it did fit through the 4" drain pipe underneath. Had to jockey it a bit but it worked.

Don't hate it as it's just one of those chores that has to be done. Like Ray said, collapse it, put caps on both end and stash it. Main thing is to rinse it out well with gray water and it's not bad.

I call it the great equalizer. It doesn't matter if it's a 24 foot Class C or a 45 foot, tag axle super bus, we all have the same stinky slinky to deal with.
