    Sewer hose storage

    The space that is provided for the sewer hose storage is very small in our 28bhs. It doesn't even hold a 5' hose. DH is going to ask about that on Sat. when he takes it back to have the outside shower fixed.

    Our Bighorn was the same way. I use a good size tote to carry 30 feet of sewer hose, connectors and fittings. Much easier to access and stow the hoses. You never know how much sewer hose you may need from place to place. If one develops a leak, I have extras.

    DH carries an old five gallon paint bucket with lid that he keeps extra hoses and other dirty stuff in.

    I store mine in the back bumper. Doesn't every TT have the same type of bumper on it for just this purpose??

    My back bumper opens up on the end also. I noticed it when I was leveling it. Very smart idea I might add.

    I thought the same thing before we picked up our Cyclone. The toy haulers and some of the other fifth wheels don't have back bumpers.

    One quick warning to I will mention is: If you have a metal bumper and you store the sewer hose in it there can/will be an issue with rust inside the bumper that will wear down the hose as it is dragged in and out of the bumper. There are many ways to prevent this such as using a placstic gutter as a tray for the hose inside the bumper or changeing the metal bumper for a vinyl tube.

    Just had to cut off 1.5 feet of my Rhino hose because of that (previous trailer)
