Second Container For Second Stinky Slinky

Where can I get a second stinky slinky container? I think it will fit nicely under the rear bumper.
Thanks.

I use the optional bumper with the storage compartment. And keep the backup in the original tube. Bumper has room for the elbow and a box of nitrile gloves. I can grab a photo if needed!

Amazon, Camping World, and most RV suppliers have them.



Have you checked for clearance under the bumper? My AS is shorter than yours, but I think it might be a bit vulnerable in that location.

We have a 3” Dexter Lift Kit, so that will help. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.
By the way, do you know the manufacturer of the one that comes with AS?
Thanks again.

Thanks guys for pointing me in the right direction.

I looked a little closer at the AS slinky container and found it was made by Valterra in Mexico (better than China). I purchased a Valterra A04-3460BK that extends from 34 to 60 inches, hence the “3460” designation.

I was going to try and make one from some 5” exhaust pipe and clamps, but when I received the clamps, I couldn’t believe how heavy they were, so back they went. The bumper floor is stiff, but, in my opinion, too thin to support the weight of my proposed contraption.

I put two 10-foot collapsible sewer hoses in the factory storage compartment, connected together. No problem.

The answer for us was to get a second storage tube from Amazon and mount it behind the rear axle, about halfway to the back bumper. I wanted it near enough to the axle that it didn't cause any ground clearance issues.

A straight flush beats a full house.....

Just couldn't resist this one....

I'm anal about my tanks, valves, and dumping procedures. If you have ever found yourself underneath, repairing the valves, you know why taking care of them is so important.

I carry a 5', 10', and 20' hose. The 5 and 10 fit in the rear bumper compartment, the 20 rides in a PVC tube underneath, near the axle.

Which one I use depends on where the sewer outlet in the ground is located in relation to where the trailer is parked. When possible, I park the trailer so the exit pipe is a straight shot to the sewer hole and use the shortest hose to make a "straight flush".

Next time you are out walking in a crowded campground, look at how many folks have a 20' hose snaked around like spaghetti when a 5-footer would be perfect.

A full house......

John

I like the location, but how do you mount it, i.e., where does the mounting screws/bolts go through to the top side? I don’t want them going through and hitting an electrical wire or water line, etc.
What kind of screws/bolts do you use?
Thanks.

I used self tapping screws like AS used but I coated the threads with hot glue. I was prepared to use threaded rivets if the glued screws didn't hold. The original one seems to have some kind of backing plate that it is screwed to. If I have to redo it, I will rivet a strip of aluminum in place to screw the brackets to but no problems so far.
