Those work great for hoses that don't have large ends or fittings on them.

Too small of a diameter pipe to handle the newer type hoses with the large fittings.

Agree.. and my RhinoFLEX hose won't scrunch up that short either--I get it down to about 7' when compressed as much as it will go. Guess that's due to the thicker material.

I'm going to go with the 5" Vinyl Fence Posts, but I'll have to order them from homedepot.com, as my local HD shops don't carry them. Thanks to everyone for chiming in here. :-)

I finally got around to making my sewer hose storage solution. I wanted to mount these under the RV but my DP just doesn't have the clearance. Still, I found a space next to my full-width slide-outs that works great too. The only difference is that my "tubes" have no drainage holes for obvious reasons so I chose not to bolt them in so that I can darn residual water out as needed.

These are 5" vinyl post covers, ordered from Home Depot online (they don't stock them near me.). I also used vinyl rain gutters to make the pull-out shelf, with red bungie "handles" to pull out the drawer. The gutters double as hose support if needed, requiring graded supports from underneath.

My Rhino hose fits easily inside these, including the 90• semi-clear fitting, but not the screw-in fitting that goes into the septic receiver. I also use one of those white plastic supports for under the hose, and it too fits in.

I built two of these--one for the main rhino system and the other for two extensions that I carry for when the sewer is too far away from my coach.

Wow, 7 ft? How long is it fully extended? I carry two Rhinos, each ten feet long and fully compressed each is about 3 feet.

JFXG-
My main Rhino hose is the black one (not brown) and so it does not compress nearly as much as the brown one does. It's more flexible--you can step on it and it will spring back to shape--but it doesn't compress as much. I don't know it's full length (had to cut off a foot due to a leak) but I'd guess it to be about 12' or so?

Generally the 4" will not hold the fittings, a six inch PVC pipe will, Or I think I have either a 5 or 7 inch fence post (will measure tomorrow when I work on it a bit,,, too tired tonight, Just "Dropped" new batteries in this house, alas, Dropped one of the old ones...... On me (OUCH) minor scrape but blead nicely, Should have worn my RED SHIRT).

I like the fence post. Holds my new Tetford Smart hose including the MH end of it. the hole in the ground end I need to take off but it's a cam-lock so it's easy off-easy on. No screwing around with it.
