While you may want some extra feet of sewer hose, in case you have a long reach at some campsites…it can present a bit of a problem. You only have room for one hose in the bumper, and you’re not exactly going to want to store that sewer hose in your RV! What to do?
Fortunately, you do have a few options (that do not involve bringing that stinky hose into your home). You can buy an RV sewer hose storage kit, which fits near the dump valves, contain the additional hose you need, and come with a convenient case to store it. You can also make your own RV sewer hose storage space out of PVC tubing or a fence post or square tube hose carrier.
DIY RV sewer hose storage tube
- 5x plastic fence posts
- 2 end caps
- 1 length of plastic gutter
- Piece of PVC pipe
- Something to attach the tube to the RV
- Drill holes in the gutter and fence post to help with drainage
- Place the end caps on the PVC pipe and screw the gutter onto each cap
- Attach the fence post to the gutter
- Attach this to wherever you want your storage container
The holes you drilled in the pipe ensure that it will dry out as you drive.
