We had the same issue. We ended up just storing the slinky (and two 5-foot extensions) in the rear bumper.

I'm not familiar with that specific hose, but I do believe a lot of the heavier hoses with large connectors simply don't fit in that tube. You have a few options:

1) get a hose with smaller connectors
2) Replace the storage tube. Valterra does make a larger sewer storage tube.
3) keep your sewer hose in your bumper trunk. Oh wait did you say Bambi? You may not have a bumper trunk.
4) make a custom storage tube......which is what I did. I bought a 5x5 black pvc fence post and mounted under the AS. I'm able to fit two of the nice hoses with all the connectors into my new storage tube.
5) look into the Sewer Solution, but this would only help if you ALWAYS have full hookups otherwise you will need a slinky as a backup.

Thanks Landrum. We are having a bumper installed, but storage is so limited I'd hate to use it for the sewer pipe. Guess I'll get a shorter hose for the near term and upgrade the storage when I can get to it

can someone point me to a thread that discusses how to set up a home sewer flush system? Not sure if you have to have a septic tank setup or not.

Cactus', you need access, probably a clean out, to your sewer system regardless of whether it is septic system to city sewer. Some people have these already, some have them installed. For water, a hose bib.


The Airstream is sold; a 2016 Nash 24M replaced it.

Thanks. Ours is pretty far away from the carport. Hopefully, when we add an extension to our driveway we can also add a clean out.
