You should have a bumper where you can store your sewer hose. If not, you can purchase sewer hose carriers (there are several different sizes at this site), or make your own.

I was able to find a plastic tote with lid that holds (1) 10', (1) 20', a hose coupler, and my 90 deg. hose to sewer coupling. I keep it up front in my outside storage with battery and tanks.

How about in your rear bumper? That's where most of them go.

I store mine in a plastic container box with a snap on lid. Just coil it up and fit in in the box. Works find and fits in one of the storage compartments.
The sealed box does not let out any fumes or water.

2 ideas:

1) check the back bumper, it should have a pop-off end cap, which is designed to store the hose;

2) I purchased a rubbermaid container (approx. 30" x 18" x 9") that holds 2 - 10' sections of hose, connectors, elbows, garden hose for cleaning up. After rinsing the hoses, I compress them to get the water out and put into the plastic container so that it sits on the bottom of the container, along 2 adjacent sides, forming an "L" shape. I take the second hose and to the same on the along the other 2 edges of the container. When done the hoses are compressed, w/ no water in them and form a rectangle on the bottom of the container. I then put all the connectors, garden hoses, etc. in the container, seal it up and store it away. Occasionally I pour some bleach and water in there and let it sit for a couple of hours to give it a good cleaning.

Hope this helps.

I use to store mine in a plastic Bread Box I got from Wal-Mart, which made it easy to clean since I could shoot water into it.

Now I use the Sewer Solution which is better.
