Talking Sewer Hose Reel

I read four different threads on the forum. None had the same situation I described above. I wondering if anyone else had a similar situation and what was done to resolve it.
Every time I see the headline/subject of this thread, I keep picturing someone running around like crazy, trying to get that sewer hose squared away, to the beat of a fast "reel" like this:

Yee Ha!

Apologies for the reel detour.

M and R, glad you got it squared away.

Yes, the music is great!! Fortunately I was parked in the driveway at home when I encountered the problem. If on the road, maybe a faster beat would have helped.

Great point. As you've said, removal looks to be quite a challenge. If you have any notes regarding your process of removal, please do share.

The reel assembly is hidden inside a metal box that is somehow affixed to the underside of the van. After a quick look, I have no clue whatever how to remove that box. When it fails for good and all, it's either going to take some "reel" study, or a mobile RV repair person who would come out here to remove it, execute the repair, reinstall, and bill me for their time and expertise.

I too could not figure out how to remove the hose reel box (looked like a riveted assembly) so I replaced the hose while the reel was in place. Wasn't too bad, but not looking forward to having to remove the assembly.
