Sewer Hose Holder

Hi Everyone.

I know I've read about this, but I can't seem to find the thread(s). My DH would like to install a sewer hose holder (pvc pipe) with a fitting on each end to close it.

I thought I'd read where some have theirs on the side running front to back, but he thought maybe placing it under the back bumper would be better.

Could someone who has installed one talk us through this?

Thanks.

Deb

Watch the diameter of the holding tube. If you want to make it less of a hassle to use make sure the fittings fit the holder. Also....the aluminum caps for sale here need a special, thin wall, tube holder. My tubes are old style....to small for the fittings. And, they run fore and aft.....a pain to use. I see a short, side to side holder for sale on EBAY...inexpensive...made to mount side to side...near the dump valve connection. All that looks great and would work fine.

We carry our sewer hose in the bed of the truck in a lidded container....b/c it won't fit in the factory installed sewer hose tubing mounted under the AS. What to put in this space???? Fishing poles?

Sewer Hose Holder

Made mine from 4" PVC pipe, about 8' long, running across the trailer, just in front of the front axel. The fitting on the end allows the hose fitting to slide in but I had to make my own cap. The other end is a standard end cap. Take your hose fitting with you to the plumbing supply place (lowes/hd) to check for fit. I have used 4" conduit straps to fasten to the frame and also regular ole strapping material. Self tapping screws. Be sure you are fastening to the frame, not the underbelly. If you mount it near the rear it could get knocked off if you drag sometime. Probably better closer to the axels, just look for a convient spot. I keep my 20' hose in it, a 10 & a 5 in the bumper. Matter of opinion, but I like the shortest, straightest shot from trailer to the hole. Oh yea, I drilled a few holes in the bottom edge of the pipe to let any water drain out. Not rocket science, but the sewer system is arguably the most important system on the whole trailer. Best to take real good care of it. Safe & happy travels. John

I have a Rhino sewer hose. and had to use a dremel to cut the "ears" off of the hose connectors before they would fit in the holder. The "ears" were tabs to assist in twisting the connector on or off. Really unnecessary.

Mounting an additional sewer line holding tube

Okay... after our first trip last weekend, we discovered that the sewer hose that came with our AS left a bit to be desired. So we measured our existing hose storage tube to verify the diameter and the length and went to Camping World. The diameter of the existing black storage tube worked with all of the sewer lines we saw, but the length was too short to hold the 15 ft replacement we wanted. No problem, we spent the bucks and purchased a new white PVC that would fit our new sewer line. I want to keep the original storage tube for a short auxiliary line and use the new tube for the new 15 ft line. The new tube has fittings to allow mounting with screws. Here is my question... How do I mount it with out damaging something... I want to mount the new holder next to the original one but don't know what I am putting the screws into on the underside of the trailer and I don't want to put a hole into one of the tanks or any plumbing. We have a 2009 27FB Ocean Breeze, and being newbies, any help or suggestions are very welcome.

Just look for the lines of rivets where the belly skins are attached to the trailer. Tap the lines with your knuckle and find a rib, cross member or outrigger. These are all parts of the frame. A short self-tapping screw into these is safe.

Think finding a stud in the wall in your house for a heavy picture.

Just a reminder....a 4in PVC pipe will fit the hose..BUT, not the end connect fittings.

Thanks to everyone for your information, and your reminders -- we are going to incorporate all this while doing our modification. For those of us who are "newer", not quite newbies, but close, the reminders are wonderful! They really save us time and $$ by learning from others' mistakes.
