Where to store sewer hose on 16' sport?

Hi all. Where do you all store your sewer hose/hose extensions on the Bambi sport 16'? There is no bumper storage or tube under trailer that I can see. Any ideas? Has anyone tried the expandable super tube? Is it a bad idea to screw something into the undercarriage of a new trailer? Thanks again for your expertise. I'm a newbie sponge right now, eager to learn. 😊

Grapesky, My 16' CCD has a storage tube mounted to the undercarriage just in front of the wheels, pretty much under the fridge vents on the street side. So, mounting underneath should not be a problem. If it stops snowing here today, I can try to get a picture.

I am pretty sure mine came that way new. I've actually been meaning to see about moving the tube opening more to the edge of the trailer. It is a foot or more from the side and sometimes reaching under the trailer for it at a dump station is a real pain. It's mostly difficult at dump stations with a curb and/or sidewalk that line up with the trailer side. If I could ever remember, I should get the hose out before pulling up to the dump.

Look into the Sewer Solution system and you will have much cleaner, smaller drain equipment to store. Basically a couple of garden hoses that have had a good rinse before storing.

It's a good product. But if the OP is planning to do much boondocking a slinky will still be needed for those times when municipal water is unavailable to use the Sewer Solution.

You have one already. It's in front of the axle - sort of closer to the front of the vehicle. You access it from the same side as the water and power.

My 2014 16' came with a 3 foot tube located as described above. I thought that was sort of a funny joke. My 10' hose wouldn't fit and any shorter hose was pretty useless. I bought a 4' tube and replaced the shorter one and that's worked fine. With the bambi if I can move the trailer around pretty easy so the 10' hose has always been long enough. Just what airstream thought you were going to put in that short tube is beyond me?

RV Sewer Hose Storage

This is one idea, rain gutters I think. Another idea is to use PVC pipes. I have a Pinterest; I save all kinds of ideas like this, these are in my "Neat Tips and Tricks" folder. Feel free to check out my Pinterest. https://www.pinterest.com/PammieSuzyQ/

I have a 2016 sport and there is a black tube under the undercarrage toward the front of the sport - it is a long round black tube.

Oh my!! My dealer told me I didn't have one!! So far he had misinformed me on several questions. Can you tell me what brand and size hose you fit into it and if the end fittings fit too or need to be removed? Thanks again.

My dealer told me I don't have one! Guess I better get down there and look more carefully. What size/brand fits best in the tube? Thanks

One can carry the hose and accessories in a plastic tote in the tv if it is a pickup truck. Otherwise mounting a tube underneath seems to be the only other option.
