Sewer Hose Storage

This may sound like a dumb question - but I won't let that slow me down. Where/how do you store your sewer hose in your motorhome?

Our coach came with a Sanicon System - which I've simply left attached to our waste connection and have used ever since we've had our coach. As a system it has served us well ... BUT, there are some drawbacks to it. First and foremost being the amount of time it takes to pump out 100 gallons of waste from the gray and black tank thru the smaller hose.

Not having to deal with wrangling a sewer hose when we're moving regularly is nice - but when we're parked for extended periods - I wouldn't mind eliminating the 10-15 minutes I spend "babysitting" the Sanicon while dumping 2x-3x a week - by using a conventional gravity feed system. I just figure out how I want to store the "slinky".

i use a short plastic tub with lid. It lets me store it with out worrying if it's perfectly dry or even clean. I rinse it out with bleach water every so often. Stores in small bay with other hoses.
Good luck

SpaceNorman-

I stow the sewer hose, elbow, rubber donut, 5-inch clear section, hose rinse cap, Valterra Flush King and a rubber strap wrench in a plastic tote that fits into the compartment immediately aft of the wet bay. NOTE: The 15-foot sewer hose is about four feet long when collapsed, so it must be bent to fit inside the tote.

Our coach came with a Sani-Con; it was broken, so I removed it. I may install a replacement at some point.

I added a 'floor' in my DEF bay, made of a closet shelf metal rack, that allows me to make use of the wasted space around the DEF tank by storing my sewer hoses there. No need for a bucket or to worry about neatness since it is an 'open' floor bay.

We put ours in a plastic trash bag—which we change out every time we pull it out— and store in the empty cavity in the aft area of the wet bay. I also clean out that entire wet bay area often with a water/bleach solution.

I store 20' ( 2 x 10') of hose and the elbow compacted and coiled in a 5 gal bucket with a lid.

Plastic tub with lid aft end of the wet bay. If not enough room then even an empty drywall bucket will work. Clean the areas with bleach occasionally.

Likewise, big heavy duty lawn and garden bags, stored in the same spot.

I store our 15 foot "stinky slinky" in a Lowes vinyl fence post installed through the sewer compartment and attached to the bottom of the frame rails. This storage method is handier than pockets on a shirt!

Mine is similar to Petes. Also a vinyl square fence post with caps I picked up at Home Depot. But instead of cutting into my utility bay I installed it above my Propane tank. It is long enough to store two sections

My approach is a bit different. I put a swing out 4" PVC pipe "elephant trunk" under the Bus that swings from the wet bay. The sewer hose is always connected to the dump elbow so I never have a wet hose anywhere except inside the 4" PVC pipe. The sewer hose collapses enough to store the entire length of hose in it. When we get to a dump site, I unscrew the 4" plug in the PVC, pull the hose and swing out the PVC pipe, and I'm ready to dump. All parts are from Lowes plumbing section and very inexpensive. I have pix, but don't know how to post them here. PM me an email and I'd be glad to share.
