Where do you store your Stinky Slinky?

I stored the stinky slinky in the rear bumper of my old 1995 Winnebago. My new to me Winnebago has a different bumper that will not work. Where do other people store than thing if they don't have a bumper that will work? I don't want it bouncing around in the bays, that's for sure!

I used to keep a storage box in the basement for such things...
One thing about the stinky, attach the ends together so it doesn't even leak unmentionables...

New coach has a sani-con, i just screw the cap on and stuff the little hose back in it's storage compartment. Sani-con makes a distasteful task easy and non smelly!

I put mine inside a plastic trash bag before storing it in a compartment. I also have another shorter hose stored in a PVC holder on the back of the motorhome. My bumper is made to hold a hose but I found it got rusty and wore the plastic off the wire on the hose creating pinhole leaks.

Damons seem to have a serious "Cut" in the rear (That is once you are one compartment past the back tire it angles up at a serious angle so the rear hitch is way above the ground) I slung a piect of six inch PVC from the frame rails and.. Well, that's what it is there for.

In the bottom of the PVC I drilled two 3/4" holes and put elbows (Facing basckwards) in them so any liquid that gets into the pipe can drain.

So far I've had one problem.. Backed over a post and knocked one end loose, Replaced the bolt.... Yesterday.
Home is where I park it!

I have the Camco hose that comes with plugs for both ends:

I store it and an extension in the wet bay in a poly sweater box:

I use about a dozen poly boxes for storage in the storage bays, under the bed, and in the closet. Cheap at Wally World.

I also have the Camco hose with covers for both ends. When I purchased my pre=enjoyed Revolution...there was a large corigated "dryer" style hose that had been placed between my joey beds in the compartments under the coach. My sewer hose with ends capped slides neatly into this larger hose. But I rinse it thoroughly whenever I disconnect and before I place the caps on it....

You could drink out of my stinky slinky. I wouldn't, but you could.

Seriously, I use the Rhino Flex. I back flush after every dump and watch for the black water to run clear. Then the galley, and then the gray.

After that i disconnect from the MH and put on the flush adapter you can get a Walmart. I thoroughly rinse with the adapter. when finished I place the hose in the bay that houses the drain. I can leave the stinky slinky in there for months and when I open the bay there is absolutely no smell.

I'm happy.

Here is the adapter I use: Flush adapter

Gotta say - the back flush is one of the best improvements to come along. It keeps a new sewer hose like new. The super deluxe probably have this - but all that's needed now is a "push button to dump black / grey" feature so I don't have to bend at the middle to open the things myself. Only downside to that would be finishing up my outside ready to roll routine before Annie finishes her inside routine. I don't even want to know what goes where much less get involved in putting it there.....

The "Stinky Slinky" is not Stinky if the tanks are dumped in the correct order. I use a Clear Elbow at the valve to tell me what is going into the Slinky. First, dump the Black tank, with the water to the macerator turned on and run water until it runs clear in the elbow. I open & close the Black Tank Valve a few times to get everything off the bottom of the tank. Once the elbow is clear, I dump the Grey tank.
For the most part, all you have left in the Slinky is Grey water but then I remove the slinky and rinse throughly with fresh water, put the caps on both ends and store it in the bottom of the wet bay because it will not fit in the original side slot with the caps on. I use this slot for my extension for the spots where you need 35' of hose to make a connection.
I have NO Stinky in my Slinky.
