Sewer hose Storage

Has anyone found a simple solution to compressing sewage hoses for storage? I carry long med and short hoses. Getting them crammed into the drawer is a real pain after they're out of the box.

Try this… Get a piece of PVC pipe that is small enough to fit inside the slinky but large enough to almost fill the slinky. Cut it to the same length as your compressed slinky or just slightly longer. Mount a flange permanently on one end of the PVC pipe to keep the slinky from sliding off. Make sure the outside diameter of the flange is still small enough to fit into your existing slinky storage tube.

Use another flange for the other end, but don't fasten it on; a slip-fit is fine. Once you have slid the PVC pipe into your slinky, a lightweight bungee cord from one flange to the other will hold the slip-fit flange in place, and make the entire slinky into one solid compressed tube that's easy to handle. If the bungee would be in the way of fitting the thing inside your storage tube, you can run the bungee cord inside the PVC pipe, but running the bungee on the outside if there's room also turns the bungee into a convenient carrying handle.

Mine has two of those tunes under it. I also did this:

Drill a hole in the storage tube about an inch from the end and another 180 degress across from it. Stuff the hose in the tube and then put a piece of bent coat hanger thru the holes to keep the hose from trying to pop out while you put the cap on.

The rear drawer is where I keep my fresh water hoses.

Many if us have given up the slinky in favor of a Sewer Solution. Just a 3/4" hose. Drains the tanks slower at the RV dump but easy and clean to use and store.
