Bored so a mod to the sewerhose

Last time we Scamped was the first time we did a full hookup. I found the sewerhose to be inadequate for reaching all the way to the drain besides being very flimsy. I purchased a 20' heavy duty sewerhose but it doesn't fit in the front carrier.....too long! Checking YouTube I found a hack from Rv with Tito and here it is. I bought a 8' long 5"x5" PVC fencepost, two end caps and some metal strapping from Lowes. I cut the PVC to length, painted flat black and installed. Here it is.

PVC post, 5x5

Installed under frame.....only 1" lower than grey water tank

Working end. Cap fits over for storage

Love This

Great job and love the location you placed this. What keeps the end caps in place?

This will definitely go in the Mod Table of Contents..... smiley

Caps

The back cap is screwed on and  drilled for ventilation.

The front cap is currently held on with a thumb screw.

Rhino Hose Cone

With the 5" fence post, if you left enough room (length) you can also store your Rhino sewer hose cone in the fence post.

Sewer hose holder - GMTA

It does seem that Great Minds Think Alike!

I did this a few months ago.  The holder is more expensive of course but I like it and I got a good deal on it.

The ends are fastened to blocks of treated wood used as spacers, which in turn is attached to the wood floor underside with pieces of flat and angle aluminum. It was a bit of a challenge to get the right size for the wood spacers so that the tube sat as high as possible, and against the frame. The aluminum is screwed into spacers and the floor with the proper length screws so that they do not penetrate into the camper, esp the water tank.

The wood blocks are very secure and I think I could actually (if careful) move the trailer on level ground just by pulling on the tube.  But, just in case the wood rots and fails in the coming years, there are two steel straps also for backup.

A longer RhinoHose, 45 degree adapter, and the original hose to be used as an extension, all fit in the holder.

Steel straps as backup

Nice work! If those backup straps are galvanized steel, they will fail long before the wood blocks and aluminum. If stainless, they are forever.

Sewer hose holder on rear bumper

That was my first choice for the location of the holder (easier install) but there was not enough room around the hitch receiver when I also added the accessory I use there.  It seems that you have the same hitch receiver however, from what I can tell in the photos.

Sewer hose holder on rear bumper

There is a small bump in the middle due to the receiver on the bumper. The small bump does present a little resistance but easily over come. So far, everything seems to be holding just fine. Fyi: I put a small flat rubber pad between the hitch receiver and the sewer holding tube.
