Topic: Sewer hose storage

Posted By: Crodad on 07/16/12 07:09am

I replaced my factory bumper with a thicker steel bumper. My sewer hose no longer fits inside. I tried to use a 4 inch water pipe, but the end attachments still don't fit inside. What mods have you done to store your sewer hose?

I use one of these and it is currently zip tied to my rear bumer: Clicky It will get mounted permanantly in a couple weeks, haven't decided where.
I have these bungeed on each end to keep the slinky inside: Clicky

I can't remember if it is the 4 or 5 inch post, but it works rather well.

I went the route of attaching a 6x6 vinyl post across the frame in front of the bumper. Our hose fits with a LOT of room to spare.



Search around... you'll find some other creative solutions people have used.

Happy Camping!

i used what downtheroad used, but it IS my rear bumper. my sister-in-law crunched the oem bumper, so i built a pair of adapter brackets and mounted the plastic fence post cover. the pic does not show the end covers, or the fact that i cut off the viable parts of the brackets and painted the new "step" white and added some non-skid to it.

I added a roll of black 3ply garbage bags under my sink. When its time to store the hose one of them is tied up mounted in the compartment forward of my hookups with the hose in it and nothing else. Very Cheap, Very Easy, and no tools required...

I drilled access/drain holes in the post and using a long extention on my drill, attached the post directly to the frame rails with self tapping screws.

I used a 5" PVC fence post with end caps...attached to the frame with super plumbers tape (metal strips with holes) and screwed to frame. I eve put a hinge on one end cap to be able to open the holder like a door and used a section of PVC rain gutter inside for a slide out tray and drilled several holes in the bottom of the tray and fence post to allow water to drain out and air to circulate to eliminate smell. I placed it right next to my sewer drain so it is very handy and easy to get to. I love it.

I ended up attaching two 40mm ammo cans to my rear bumper with square U-bolts. The left side holds the black water hose, the right holds the gray water hose. I have an on-board black tank but external gray tank. The way the hoses fit in there, each end is always pointed up, so that minimizes dribble inside. I just pop the lids when I get home to allow for drying. The actual bumper houses the awning poles.

I used a length of PVC pipe. I have a living room slide that the basement storage bays move with the slide.
I bolted the PVC pipe to the wall of the bays so that when the slide is in travel position, nothing is visible. When I setup for living, the end of the PVC pipe is visible and I can just slide my sewer hose in our out of the PVC pipe. Just a couple pieces of plumbers strap hold the PVC pipe in place.

I'd take a look at this:



It can mount on the bumper and provide rust-proof storage of hoses, as well as the fittings. Stuffing the hose in the normal bumpers just means it will rust in the inside, then the hose abrades on the rusted sections causing pinholes.

I have a good amount of storage space, so I keep my sewage hose in a plastic tub. This way, it is well secured, easy to get in and out, and I can hose down the tub and hose with bleach water before putting away for storage.

I used a 6" PVC pipe, glued cap on 1 end, threaded cap on the other. Drilled drain holes in bottom. 3 hoses plus fittings fit.

I was very impressed with this design when C.B. first posted it (maybe a year ago?) and decided to build one for my rig, too. Problem is, nobody has given me a "round tuit" yet.

mine is a piece of drainage field pipe. it is slightly larger on the inside than regular plastic pipe. it also has holes in it that allow the pipe to breath so my slinky is always dry. the end cap is just a cap for the pipe with a single hole that you stick a slightly open cotter pin into. there are also slots cut for the tabs to slide into which holds it nicely at the end.

That will help offset the cost of the 5x5 fence post cover/caps and fancy drawer pull with custom gutter stops you put on the end of the gutter.

You can buy the pvc pipe type thing from CW, or could, with mounting base and caps that seat with a quarter turn. Designed to be mounted under a towable or anywhere.

I just finished and took my storage tupe on the road this weekend.

I used a piece of 6" PVC pipe, an end cap and a cleanout fitting with a plug. I used some kindorff channel and straps to fasten it to the frame. Took about an hour to install and total cost for all the parts was under $60.

Are y'all finding the fence post in stock at a big box store (Home Depot, Lowes, etc)? I've looked around the Austin area and can't seem to find any place that carries them in stock.

I have 3 pcv square tubes stacked on top of each other with 1" gaps between them on top of the steel bumper. With the pvc caps hinged with latch and locks with gutter trays. They are about 5' long to leave clearance for the tail lights. They look and work great for my rhino hose, 2-5' extensions, short dump hose, gloves and pliers. Thanks to C.B.'s idea! I then use a pvc gutter tray in the steel bumper for my extra awning poles and broom handle without getting scratched or rusty and never have to reach in to get something.

This one really needs a picture bad, when you get a round toit would be good.


Posted By: CTD2005 on 08/12/12 06:29pm

I used the pvc fence post style mounted next to my sewer hook up. Has plenty of room for my sewer hose kit, and the 10' extension hose as well as the ends. Works out perfectly.

It's a 5" fence post cover. I had to get mine at Home Depot but I had to get the gutter to go inside at Lowe's. Neither place carried both items.

I have seen a lot of different ideas on how to store the stinky slinky, and I took the one I saw that I liked the best, which was posted by C.B., and took some of my own ideas to it and came up with this!

It's a 4-3/4"x4-3/4" vinyl fence post from Lowes with vinyl gutter inside. I then cut some laminated shelving pieces to fit the contours of the inside of the gutter to section it off for "compartments" for the different sections of hose, fittings etc.. Then took the post caps, riveted hinges and latches on and riveted them on to the fence post. Here is the finished product, it stores my 15' Rhino hose, end fitting, 45 degree fitting, and 5' extension. I then mounted it under the trailer to the frame, right next to the sewer connection, so everthing is right there. I can access it from either side of the trailer, as both ends have hinges and latches.

Don't forget to post up some pics.

Ok, another man's version of the storage system:



You can see that I have the caps hinged from the side, that is so I could attach the fence post with no interference. I mounted it on the bumper because I'm doing some underbelly work on the sanitary system and I didn't want the storage tube in my way.



The same locking clasp:



I made the mounting brackets out of 1/8" aluminum plate. Cut threaded rod to length, cut beauty tubing also out of aluminum. All of it was painted with a primer coat of "Bulldog Adhesion Promoter" (an auto body thing) and Rustoleum Universal Any Surface paint. If I have time, I'll shoot on a couple of coats of clear to help durability.



First, thanks to CB, the originator of this system, AFAIK and all those that have tread the path previously. Your examples were well done and gave me the easy route.
A few notes about the materials: Maybe I bought something different or Lowes has changed stock but the 5" fence post is actually 4 3/4" exterior and 4 1/2" interior dimension. I tried to use the vinyl end caps for the gutter as divider and end cap and the gutter wouldn't fir into the post. I fashioned plywood caps and divider of 4" in length and the gutter now slides well. A builder will also have to think of how the fasteners are directed because in certain orientations the fasteners may interfere with the gutter sliding through the post.

Might as well ask about this since maybe you guys have done this: Is it possible to remove and replace Rhinoflex fittings on the end of the hose? I bumped into a good deal on the Rhinoflex kit so purchased another. I am thinking about removing the dump fitting end and replacing it with a Rhino "Lug fitting" so I can mate the two hoses together. That will give me 30 ft. of dump hose, I scoff at your badly engineered dump locations,lol.

Everything looks great, nice clean job! Yes the ends do remove. If I remeber correctly I think they are reverse thread. I used a 5' extension, replaced the ends with the same as the main kit and keep it for use with my blue portable tank. Works out great.

Thanks, CT. I could order up that lug end for the hose, then. Another 15' footer won't fit in the gutter so I may be better off just getting the 5' extendion and leaving this new one intact. though. That way I could have one for just a tote, also.

Your welcome, the 5' extension works out great because it's always there to use as an extension still if you need it. Just swap the ends back and your good to go. I keep a small plastic container in the basement with my rarely used sewer hose ends.
I use a small cooler to keep all my fresh water items in. Then it doubles for drinks if we need it.


Posted By: notruffinit on 08/28/12 08:29am

I got a 5 gallon bucket with a lid. Curl the slinky into it, slap the lid on and set it in the basement. No mess and even if there is a little water in the slinky it stays in the bucket. Every now and then put water in the bucket with some detergent and soak and wash the entire mess down. I also keep my rinse hose in the same bucket.

We did ours today with the gutter inside of the 5x5. I still have to add the dividers to the gutter ($3.00-10' for the gutter at Menard's)We added two 1-4x4 for indoor/outdoor rug & 5x5 for sewer hose. Looking at the painted post I think tomorrow that will be my project I want them to blend in better. We used U-Bolts to connect it to the bummer and it lays on top of the bike rack's extra spacing. then we connected smaller U-Bolts to connect the two together. After seeing the spring latches I think I am going to take my long bolts I have on the caps off and replace with them they seem much easier. thanks for your photos.

Here are mine attached to the extra space between the bumper and the bike rack.

Hey guys...got a question.

I took our 5th in for service work to be done and on the way home, picked up the fence post and gutter.

Are y'all using the entire length of fence post? I should have measured, but didnt. If anyone can provide a measurement would be great, that way I can have it done and ready to go on when I pick it up.

Thanks

I used the entire length. Seemed to be right about perfect.

Hey guys...got a question.

I took our 5th in for service work to be done and on the way home, picked up the fence post and gutter.

Are y'all using the entire length of fence post? I should have measured, but didnt. If anyone can provide a measurement would be great, that way I can have it done and ready to go on when I pick it up.

Thanks
You'll need to know the width of your TT and how much you wish to have the fence post in from the sides. The Rhino hose and fittings can fit in about 5 1/2' of the gutter. The fence post is easy to cut with conventional tools.

I used the entire fence post length, and cut the gutter to fit it. Was a perfect fit on my 5th wheel.

Are y'all finding the fence post in stock at a big box store (Home Depot, Lowes, etc)? I've looked around the Austin area and can't seem to find any place that carries them in stock.

Thanks,

I got mine at Lowe's. The fence posts are going to be in the outdoor department (pavers, wall blocks, chain link, etc). That threw me off at first.

The Home Depot in my area didn't carry them in stock so I had them order it for me.

I got mine at Home Depot in the fence aisle, with the chain link and wooden gate stuff.

Our big box stores do not carry 5" square fence post cover. I had to go to the plastic fence company close to my house. Bought a 10' length and cut it off. The gutter inside fits perfect.
