DITTO.... I do the same thing.
I had one extra 5" by 5" plastic post left over from my fence install
It works great and keeps everything neat and organized

I have three plastic tubs with one for all things water, one for all things sewer and one for extension cords, cable wires and other electrical items. I store them in the bay next to the wet bay.

In a thick plastic bag, in a rubber tote and cover. I change bag every month or so while traveling and wash tote with bleach/water solution when I change bag.

I use two 4 inch ABS pipe sticks with screw on caps with 8th inch drain holes. Both will hold two 20 slinky hoses strapped to my folding ladder. I keep the ladder up when traveling so all my lights clearly show and down when stationary which still can be used as the tubes are on the inside towards the coach and can still stepped up on.

Our rig has a latching door that I store the SaniCon hose in as well as my 3" slinky. Our previous DSDP had a tube going in behind the drive axle that I used. Did have to go to the Blue Line fittings to get enough clearance to fit in the tube.

I also store mine in a plastic bag but store it in the propane door on top of the tank. It does not take any storage area that way. I'm gonna put in a large plastic hard sewer pipe to store it in the propane bay when I get some time to do, that way I can eliminate the bag. My propane bay is next to the wet bay so it is very convenient.

I use two plastic drawer units stacked in the bay just aft of the wet bay. I use the top drawer unit to store fresh water hoses, and the lower to store my slinky sewer hose. Two similar but smaller drawer units are used to store fresh water fittings and accessories, and the lower one for sewer hose fittings. I've found it very easy to manage and use this way. I might add my coach has a factory installed drop-down hinged storage tray under the wet bay where I keep an additional sewer hose.

Sewer Hose Storage

I'm another fan of the square-fence -post-cover school. 7.5 ft, mounted under, a piece of vinyl gutter as a sliding tray. Holds 25 ft. I have two others for other long, skinny stuff.

Great idea! The cool air will keep the smell down, and you can store pop/soda cans in the stinky slinky allowing the hose to perform double duty

I can't store soda cans in my slinky, since that's where I store my fresh water hose.

Actually, on our coach, the bottom of the wet bay (which is plastic) is recessed so I just keep my 3 capped hoses there, and just wipe it with a disinfectant on occasion / as appropriate.

Fresh water hoses, fittings, etc. are kept in bins in an adjacent bay. 2 hoses in one bin since they lay on the ground, fittings in another.

Slinky stand is in another bay with my leveling blocks which I am not overly concerned about any "cross contamination".

Regards

We do the two drawer plastic cabinets in the half bay in front of the wet bay. Single stinky slinky in the bottom drawer. Electronics, water pressure regulator, box of disposable rubber gloves, and other misc items in top drawer. The top of the cabinet, I set our primary 25' free water hose (Drained, coiled, male screwed into female fittings, oversized rubber twisty holding it coiled.). Have about 3" to the side of the cabinet, where I store a 8' hosed used for flushing the tanks, and back up 25' flat woven coil hose in a reel. We have two additional stinky slinky for longer hookup's, each in a garbage bag, sitting behind the cabinet drawers.

In the wet bay, I keep the elbow fitting to the sewer hook up. And we keep an always attached and coiled and ready to go 30' cable for hooking up to parks cable when available. Hang this on a larger 3M Command Strip hook. Finally, we have a plastic bottle spray mix of bleach/water. Always use this to stay hose bibs before hooking up the fresh water hose. A few times a month, will spray down the wet bay with the bleach mix, let sit for a few minutes, then rinse out the bay with fresh water.

Has been working well for us. But have thought about adding the fence posts covers to the propane bay area. Have held off, as now that we have a residential fridge, the only propane we use is the stove top. And sometimes do a stubbed out quick disconnect feed to our Heat Buddy. Been thinking of removing this big heavy LP bottle. Replace the LP stovetop with a induction cooktop. Then onverting the are to storage, and retain a 20lbs portable bottle to feed the BBQ, Amazing Campfire in a Can, and the Heat Buddy. If I do that, will add two of the fence post storage containers at that time.

Best to all,
Smitty

Oh yes, I neglected to mention the gent I saw pulling out of a campground last year. He must have believed in really draining his stinky slinky, as it was still attached and being dragged behind his fiver....

(Probably goes thru a few more hoses then most of us do, but, can you really put a price on having a properly drained stinky? Suppose is also opens up more storage in the bays too.)
