We have a 2004 Dolphin and would like a better way to store the sewer hose than what National offers with their stock coach. I have an idea but has anybody gotten creative.

No ideas here either. We just toss our hoses into the space the factory provided on our 2002 Dolphin LX. On ours, it is a deep area adjacent and to the right of the water inlets/valves, etc, in the utility bay. Plenty of room for 20 feet of 3" hose.

The space is similar to that of our SeaBreeze.

What I did was get some PVC pipe and cut it to fit just short of the drain pipe (with both caps on). Drilled holes i the caps to let air in and glued the rear cap.

Then I secured it with heavy duty velcro to the compartment.

FYI -- I put 2 of these in.

The hose slips into the pipe and is secured and not moving around. The extension hose is in the second pipe.

Also, I used 6" PVC and so the elbow et al fits in as well.

I use a standard storage tube available from camping supply stores. Mounted it next to the drain compartment. Use this only for a long hose which is needed from time to time. Found to be very handy and out of the way.
Pics below (can be seen from the "Rear" shot).

I am planning to add one six" PVC pipe over the top of the tanks--cut a hole in the plastic cover inside the bay where the drain valves are. I had the small section in the upper right removed to fish my cables when I added Solar. The is a fair amount of room, but I have not measured it yet.
I keep two hoses, one 15' and one 25', just coiled in the bay. I would like to store the longer one out of the way also.

I made a "sewer hose compressor" from plans found in "10 Minute Tech" book from Trailer Life people. Works good for me in my '05 Sea Breeze, which is similar to the Dolphins. Other designs on the same subject and many more are listed there. E-mail me for more info.

welcome to the friendliest forum on the web. i don't have the same coach as yours but i addressed the problem with a 60" length of dwv pipe and a cap with 3/16" holes in a circular pattern. on the other, i put a female adapter and clean out cap with more holes and a pc. of short chain to keep me from losing it. i then mounted it under the coach to allow for easy access and mounting. i just couldn't put it anywhere in the bays and for $15 i didn't. come back and post often. if you would like pics and can tell me how to email them to you i will. terry

I added some long storage tubes across the rear end for my fishing rods (I carry several) and something similar could be done for a sewer hose. I put 4 4" PVC pipes just in front of the rear cap, in the space extending from the LPG bay on one side to the generator bay on the other. Access was easier from the LPG tank side, so that's where I have the open ends (the other ends have glued caps). A 6" pipe would easily fit in their on mine, maybe even a pair of them.

I got a piece of 6"plastic pipe.I cut a hole in the back of the compartment and mounted the pipe parallel with the axel across the coach.I have a D.P so don't have a drveshaft to worry about.

I used 4" pvc secured to the "ceiling" of the generator compartment. Had room for 3 such arrangements there. Used a bungee cord across the open end above the gen to keep hoses in. Other end is secured with a 4" cap. One tube runs behind gen between the rear cap and gen and uses a 45 degree 4" bend.

see images in photos/upgrades
