    Sewer Hose Storage

    I wanted better sewer hose storage than what came as supplied with the BH. My solution was to put a carrier underneath the front storage bay. It lookes as if there would be some slight interference with the gas hose on the Off door side so I deceided to use a spacer for the storage tube under the floor.I had an old piece of salvage awning arm from a previous repair ( different RV)
    that I bolted to the underside of the floor of the storage bay. I then used large tie wraps to fasten the tube to the U channel arm. This gave the neccessary clearance..The tube was sourced at Lowes and is drainage pipe,the ends and the screw in caps were from same plumbing dept.I had the proper glue on hand . I bought the 4 in size and is satisfactory for my hose which is the blue push together type .If I was to do this again I would use the 6 in size. Then it would accomodate a different brand of sewer hose with the ends..
    I may add a second tube underneath and I will look at the Camping World Kit making sure the brackets will be able to bolt up to a convienent place.
    My set up is about half the price of the Camping World Kit but more work to assemble..

    I made a couple of these for my TC. Make them any length and store them were ever you want. Plan to make a couple for my future FW. Have enough material left over for the purpose. I just glued one cap on and put a pop rivet in the other end for a latch and then notched a cap for that end. All was bought from Home Depot for practicaly nothing!

    ChopperBill,
    You might want to consider using an end cap with threads and a threaded plug. Might be eaiser than notching out a cap and will not leak.

    ChopperBill,
    Is that standard PVC (it looks a little different) and what diameter did you use? Thanks, Steve

    Not being a plumber I cant remember the name of the pipe. I think it is the stuff they use for leach fields. Next to this was the same pipe that had holes drilled down the length. I used 4 inch and it will not facilitate the Presto-fit fittings. Just the sewer hose. I put my adapters and connectors in another basket. The cap fits snug and hasn't leaked so far. Real easy to knotch with one of those little hacksaws. I built two of them about 28 inches long and a collapsed section of 10 foot hose fits just right. Just stand it up on end and push the hose in and cap it off. Doesn't take up much room that way.

    I just thought of an improvement I can make on my home made tube. I am going to make the caps removable for both ends on my next set. Then you can take both caps off and run the hose through one or two in order to keep the hose from snaking around while you are camped.
