Bags for water hoses and 30a cord

I'm looking for a few of bags (sacks) to store my 35' fresh water hose, and my 30' 30amp cord in the outside compartment under the twin bed. Just trying to keep dirt to a minimum inside the compartment. I used to have couple of large nylon bags I got at Home Depot but they don't carry them anymore and I need a couple of replacements. Any suggestions?

Marinco makes a shore power bag and it is available on Amazon.

Army surplus store. Old army laundry bag or helmet bag. Old postal sack, old commercial laundry sack. Old rucksacks with straps but off, as the open zippers would be nice.

I use the ZipLock Big Bags. I tried using fancy plastic roll up holders. More trouble than they were worth. Went back to the ZipLock bags.

I don't have them in a bag,but I store mine on top of the LP tanks in the tank cover. I like the Zip Lock idea.

Heavy duty canvas round bags used to store jumper cables.
I think mine came from Carhartt or the like.
Being round, it is easier to get hoses and cables in, and take up less room.

I use some reusable grocery bags, inexpensive and they work well. Not to big not to small. Handles to move around with. Stack nicely next to each other.
I twist the ends of the hoses together to hold water from leaking and keep dirt out.

Bags for hoses and 30 amp cord

I go to a lot of expos and conventions. Always a good selection of bags given away by vendors. Some with drawstrings and some with zippers. Handles for hanging too. Check local Goodwill, Salvation Army or other similar stores. I always donate my excess bags to them.

My hoses and power cord are never really dirty, but I wipe them off before putting them in the storage under the bed.
A bag might be handy to contain them or tame the unruly snake.

I use clear storage bins. One for electric and one for water. They stack inside the compartment.

I use Tupperware tubs; 8 inch deep size, for both electrical spares and water hoses.They store very nicely in the rear side compartment and keep things organized in addition to keeping water from leaking on the carpet back there

Try Harbor Freight (Fright ), as they have zipper HD Nylon tool bags in 12"-18" & larger which I use for hose, cable, leveling jacks (old school 4x alum. base+screw), etc.

However, save yourself some coin & get their online, mailed & sale book coupons, since their stuff is always got some coupon or discount. Their coupons are usually 20-50% less than the "regular" prices shown at the link below for them (e.g.: the 11-12" ones are typically $.99-6.99 with coupons, vs. $8.99 reg.).

http://www.harborfreight.com/tool-st...xpand&limit=60

I suggest going into the store if nearby, so you can see exactly which size(s) you'll need. They're great for all sorts of camp stuff.

I also go to a lot of business conferences where they hand out "sponsored" canvas/nylon tote bags & cases, which I re-purpose to carry gear, but they're not as heavy duty as the HF type - but free!

Cheers!
Tom

I'm with Cav. Plastic storage bins are easier to clean than bags once they inevitably get dirty or wet. I even leave most of my my electrical cord wound up inside the plastic container when it is in use, with just enough of the cord ends exposed to connect to the tt and power source. I push the bin under the tt to keep the rest of the cord dry/clean while in use. I prefer bins with attached/hinged lids for this purpose.

We took to wiping off our power cord and hoses before storing, which helps a lot, and those sturdy, mesh, drawstring laundry bags...in dark colors...are good for storage of things that may also need to dry and breathe a bit.

I think we got ours at WalMart, but this is closer than what I have found there today...$6.99.

I use dry storage bags for my boat and for my airstream. They are sort of like a rubber style duffle bag. They also come in various sizes from a one foot square to 3 feet by 6 feet and everything in between. I get mine at Bass Pro, but there are many sites online to order from. They come in colors and you can also get them in clear. You fold the end over a couple of times and they have a built in clasp to keep everyhing nice and cozy. I like them because you can "stuff" them in places where you couldn't store a rigid container.

Bags for water hoses and 30a cord

What about old duffle bags, backpacks, suitcases, or briefcases?
Beach bags?
Canvas library or grocery bags?
