Waste dump hose storage location

Just curious as to whether the little door on our 310 moho thats labeled "Sewer Hose" is a factory installation or some PO add-on. I've not used it yet mainly because I'm not thrilled with trying to push a wet slinky through the electrical/water storage compartment.

The first picture shows the door to the hose compartment.

The second picture shows the underneath view. The tube is about 2' long and reaches to the rear of the wheel well.

I'm still trying to figure out the best location to store the hose. I'll probably rig up something underneath.

I have a compartment on my 345 just like that. I cannot put my dump hose in it. The fitting that is on the end has a hose clamp on it and it will not fit back in there.

BKAHLER, that is a factory idea. You can take out the tube and put in a length of flexible dryer vent, bent around to give you enough length for your sewer hose. OR, you could mpount a separate tube crosswise under the rear of the coach, which is lots more sanitary and less shocking. Drill drain holes in the lower side.

I found that the small tube will only take about 5 feet of hose compressed, so I fitted a length of plastic underground sewer pipe between the fuel tank and the air bags. It just about fits with approximately 2-3 inches spare between the tank and the air bags.
It is "hinged at one end with a threaded rod through the end of the tube to act as a stop and a fixed but hinged end. The other end just pops on a small vertical rod riveted to a stainless strap on the side skirt. It works very well. The full length hose is outside, the air gets around and through it and it is secure.Click image for larger version

Expanding on Chuckles' post, a piece of PVC pipe with screw on plugs on either end strung under your moho in the place shown above, would be another idea.

I was going that way at first but thought it would better if the hose had a good circulation of air and of course it drains well.
When I first bought the 310 the hoses were kept in the rear R/S Compartment! that caused a lot of problems with water, smell and the loss of useful storage, as well as the start of rusting.

Our Classic trailer has a PVC tube mounted east-west about midway from the hitch to the front wheels that we use for the sewer hose - someone told us once that was for flag poles...(???). Drill drain holes in it which would also serve as ventilation. Twist-end caps to close it up. Works peachy-keen.

on a 345

It is also in the elec compartment but the door is next to the water reel and runs along the back bumper. Works great
