Tip.......
Drill some 1/2 holes in the tube caps and a few along the bottom of the tube.
After dumping, and washing out "slinky", all will be dry and much nicer to handle at the next use.

Drill a hole in the end of the tube opposite the open end. Squirt some starting fluid in it, and apply a flame to the hole. You will not only get the slinky out of the pipe, it will blast the slinky clean, and get rid of your noisy neighbors for a while, if you aim it right.

Try this

My MH has a compartment for storing hose & connector. Maybe you modify one of your comprtment to accept this Airstream issued parts. The tube that holds the hose is the flexible aluminum dryer hose type. You might be able to slightly bend it to conform to your available space. The flexability of the slinky should folloe the curve of the dryer hose. Remember to have the capped end lower so the slinky run off doesn't end in your storage compartment. The handle can be replaced with a key locking device if you chose to mount this directly to the outside of your trailer.

That almost sounds as fun as my potato gun which works on the same principal (but it much cleaner)

What if it is really stuck and back fires, man that could be a mess
