2011 International sewer questions

I'm new to this so forgive me please. Here's my question. The underneath sewer hose storage seems tiny. The longest hose I can fit is 10' which just isn't long enough at some RV parks. What am I missing? Should I carry an extra "extender" hose? If so, where do I carry it? Thanks in advance.

Not sure of your storage layout, but I do carry a second hose with extension fittings on it. One goes in the PVC tube which is under the AS and the other is in one of the banana wrap compartments next to the sewer pipes.

Yes, you will camp somewhere soon where you need an extra hose and if you don't have it, you will have to hook up your trailer to go to the dump station.
Cheap sewer hoses are awful. Get two of the extra strength ones together with a kit that makes attaching two hoses together easy. Camping world has a selection with several choices. This is one area where the cheap choice is not the best one. Messing with sewer hoses is unpleasant and you want the task quick and easy. I am willing to pay for the ease and convenience.
I carry my extra hose in a two high strength black plastic trash bags in one of the outside compartments.
When manuevering into a new site, I always try to get the sewer connection close so I can use one hose if possible and then, if possible, get the step over the concrete pad.

Back in the olden days when I was using the 'stinky slinky', I added a second sewer hose storage tube just aft of the factory tube. It is longer and easily stores two 10' sections of 'stinky slinky'. I now use this tube to store one of my curly hoses.

Curly hoses? Different than 'stinky slinky'?

When I referred to a "curly" hose, I meant the spring type garden hoses that I use for my water supply lines. The blue one is certified for potable water. The green one is a regular garden hose that I use for the Sewer Solution supply hose and other washing uses.

When I made reference to a 'stinky slinky', I was referring to the standard 3" sewer dump hose that many campers still use. I keep a 10' section of 'stinky slinky' on board in case have to dump where there is no water supply. I have been using a Sewer Solution exclusively for the past 4 years and 700 nights of camping.

I'm a new 2010 27' FB Flying Cloud owner and am trying to find the best way to store my "stinky slinky". If my rig has a sewer storage tube installed I haven't found it yet. Lacking that what is the best way to store the thing?

Your 27FB should have come with a stinky slinky storage tube on the bottom of the trailer just forward of the left wheels. If this has been removed, about all you can do is try to get it to fit in the rear bumper. It would probably be best to replace the underbody tube with a new one.

You can make one out of PVC or black ABS for less than $10. All you need is a length of the pipe (I think it's 4"), and a pair of threaded caps, with the threaded ends for the pipes to glue to the pipe. The only hard part is mounting it, and you can use some banding strap for that. I'd probably drill a few holes in the ends so any residual liquid will evaporate.
