Sewer hose carrier

We want to add a sewer hose carrier under the motorhome but can't remember if we need a 6 in or 5 in carrier. I measured the hose which is 4 in so guess a 5 in would work but thought others had used a 6 in by 8 ft fence post. Checked at Home Depot and they only carry a 5 in. Suggestions please.
Thanks,
RJ

When I made the one for our old MH, I used 6 inch PVC and 2 45 degree elbows and a cap on the lower end that was inside by the frame.
I also cut a 1/2 round hole on the top end that was up against the door of the storage compartment. That way the 90 degree end that goes down into the drain stays on and is held in place by the door when it's closed. Everything stays together and stores together nicely.
Drill a couple of 1/2 or so holes at the low end for drainage also.
Good Luck, and happy building.

Used the Home depot 5" fence post and end caps for ours. The fittings on our Rhino-Flex hoses fit easily. Had to spray paint it black, as it only comes in white.

Yes, the 5 inch one works well and fits the hoses with the slightly larger couplers such as rhino.

I went with this one. Easy to mount, comes in different lengths. I checked the fence post at HD but in comparison, this one was about the same money and comes in black or white. No painting required.

This is my summer project. I like the fact that more than just sewer hose can be carried in these.

The link I attached for Amazon is the identical product and likely cheaper than CW.

Here is a current link:

Adjustable EZ Hose Carrier, 50-94€L, Black - Valterra A04-5094BK - Sewer Accessories - Camping World

Just make sure you order the right size, I think I had to go with the 94". It fit right behind the gas tank. Quality product and the installation was a snap.

94" link

It's actually cheaper than the same size Amazon one. Same for the other sizes as well, go figure.

But if you'll take one in an opened box, Amazon Warehouse deals has one even cheaper with free shipping.
