Slinky Storage

I'm curious and open to ideas on how everyone stores their dump hoses? Our '55 has nothing other than the side trunk, which is open to the interior of the trailer. P.O. stored the hose there, which I find gross. Any ideas or suggestions for storage that will be visually pleasing and still provide ground clearance. (Bumper curves at ends)

I use a plastic box with a snap on lid. Put the hose and the other related accesories in it. It stows in my side bin. Has wheels also so I roll it out, use the hose, roll it back, stow.

On my '01 Bambi I have two Plastic tubes attached underneath the trailer. One is 48", the other is 60" so I can store a 10' and a 20' with connectors. These tubes can be purchased at Camping World or other RV places and are easily attached.

I've seen the "tubes underneath" solution retrofit on vintage units too. At the Rocky Mountain VAC Rally this past summer, one person used 4" PVC piping & threaded caps, typical pieces that are available at Home Depot. They just riveted them underneath with aluminum straps...looked like it worked pretty well.

I looked through my pictures, but sorry, I couldn't find one...

The pvc tubes are what I was thinking, just seeing if anyone had a "better mousetrap."

Factory installed

Jason,

Mine came with the PCV riveted underneath. A/S painted it to match the belly color.

PO added another longer one for additional storage.

Greetings Jason!

As part of the restoration on my '64 Overlander, I had two sewer hose storage tubes added to my coach. They are sized for the 10' length of sewer hose - - if I had it to do over again, I would have insisted on the larger size as I rarely use my 10' hose, but nearly always find that the 20' hose is needed. Ace Fogdall RV installed them for me, and they were one of the more reasonable modifications. My next goal is to have a third storage tube added for my three telescoping flagpoles so that they won't be a continuing nuisance in the bedroom hallway. You can see the two tubes that are currently on the coach in the photo below (they are just behind the rear wheel.

Good luck with finding an acceptable solution to your problem.

Kevin
