Sewer Hose Carrier

Post  chuck on Tue Nov 03, 2009 3:01 pm

Anyone have any experience with adding a sewer hose carrier to your RV?

Like this.. made from PVC pipe and attached to the bumper:


or made from those vinyl fence corner posts covers.. this one is attached to the tongue just behind the propane tanks (I'm leaning towards this option):


I may go with the fence post on the front.. My bumper is not really designed to attache anything.. and I kinda think the square vinyl looks better. How would you suggest attaching to the tongue?

No experience here Chuck but i would be a bit leary of the Plastic Quck Ties. Myself i would get a few large U-Bolts or something that cant break.

Just my .002 worth.

Would agree with Craig. I would want something more than the plastic quick ties.

I actually went out yesterday and bought supplies to add a sewer hose carrier. I looked at various things to use.. and thought I cam up with a pretty neat idea,.. different from either of these.

However.. the item I bought to store the hose in.. won't fit between the propane tanks and the camper.. So it's back to the drawing board.

For people thinking about this mod.. Here's an idea of the cost:
10 ft (5 inch) PVC.. about $9 (cut in half to make 5 ft carrier.. sell other half)
PVC end cap, threaded sleeve and screw on cap for other end. about $15
Then ya gotta glue some of the peices.. PVC glue: $3
with tax roughly: $30

The vinyl fence post cover costs a little more: about $35
With the fence post... you can buy covers or caps for the ends, but they are kinda expensive.. probably add another $10 - $15. I would probably just drill holes near each end.. and slide a bolt through from one side to the other.. and attach a wing nut (cheaper than caps). This would keep the hose from sliding out and would also leave the ends open for ventilation and drying of the hose and clamps, etc.

Add cost for some sort of bolts, ties or whatever to attach the post or PVC to your camper.

Seems a good idea to keep such things out of the interior of the camper, hahaha.

I keep the hose and attachements in a small tote in the underneath cargo area now. I would like to free up that tote and space for other things.. like tools, water hose, cable TV line, pressure regulator, etc.

The sewer hoses actually stay pretty clean because I am always rinsing with the soapy gray water.. and using the flush king a few times.

By the way.. alot of people use the above mentioned (PVC) strorage devices for fishing poles too.
