I have a piece of semi rigid plastic drain pipe (Lowes/Home Depot - cheap!) clamped to a cross member immediately ahead of my year wheels. Runs from one side of the coach to the other, big end on drivers side positioned to be easily accessible but far enough under to not be in the way. One end (passenger side) is blocked off, driver's side is drilled for a bolt I put there to prevent the hose from falling out. There are fittings for screw in ends available if you want to get fancy. Holes in pipe allow the hose to drain and dry. A quick rinse and it's ready to be shoved in the tube ready to go the next time I need it.

No muss, no fuss, and no line behind me at the dump station.

I do the same as RV2Home. Specially, when I dump the tanks, the black tank goes first. Then the grey. After that I flush the sewer hose with water from the dump site. Then, since the hose is clean, I use a 5 gal bucket to store the hose and I wash down the sewer compartment with fresh water from the dump site. The 5 gal bucket works just great.
Common sense in working with this troublesome aspect of RVing is what is needed to get the job done.

Hi Bondad,

I store mine in my LP tank bay. The LP tank bay is immediately adjacent to the water service bay, so it's conveniently located. It's a 39 gallon tank, mounted transversely in a ventilated bay. I attached a section of rain gutter to the bay wall, just above the tank. The slinky slides in and out easily and since the bay is open on the bottom for ventilation, odor elimination isn't a problem. I DO flush the slinky with each dump, so it's pretty clean anyway.

Take care,

My Newmar Kountry Star DP has a hatch on the side just above the wet compartment that is supposed to used for that purpose. I just drain black, then gray then turn on the magic black tank flusher until the water runs clear. Hose coils up and fits right next to the tank drain valves. No fuss, no muss... I use the supplied hose compartment for an extension for the well designed campsites that have the hookup 40 ft.away from my wet bay.

My old Southwind has a compartment just for the slinky. The female end fits through a hole just aft of the dump connector, holds 20 ' of slinky & the end pulls out of a little door. Dump black, then grey, cap on connector, flush hose with hose at dump, & push hose back in the door.

[QUOTE=Wayne M;1351575]You could drink out of my stinky slinky. I wouldn't, but you could.

Seriously, I use the Rhino Flex. I back flush after every dump and watch for the black water to run clear. Then the galley, and then the gray./QUOTE]

I use the Rhino Flex as well. Caps on after rinse......no issues!
