Sewer Hose

Is there enough room in the wet bay to store the 3" hose?

Many owners fit a 4" plastic pipe or plastic fence post under RV for hose storage. Water is corrosive and will ruin inside of bumpers, best kept segregated away from outside compartments.

I have the screw ends on a 10 foot hose and still manage to serpentine it in the bay and close the door. Berk did not plan well for sewer hose storage.

Don't think a Berkshire has a square tube bumper as it is a motorhome.

I think I'm going to go with a Sanicon due to the lack of space.

On my 2011 there is a square opening that will hold a short sewer pipe. I store mine in a plastic bin.

X2! If you have a little longer sewer hose you will find it hard to get it into the storage hole. I too bought a plastic, covered storage bin for the hose.

I carry three 10' lengths of sewer hose in a closed plastic container in the bays under the rig. The hoses can be cleaned up before I store them and we disinfect the storage container when we come home. It has always worked well for us and it keeps the hoses closed and away from anything important.

I have a clear plastic with 3-10' sections and the fittings too...stored in the compartment nearest the wet bay. I keep a cheap emergency 3" hose in that crummy little hole.

I do the same with just a small new cheap emergency hose in the crummy little storage hole. My longer hoses and fittings I keep stored in a plastic pet food storage bin that has a spin on airtight lid so my storage area in the bay next to the water panel wont ever develop an odor from a loose lid. Just wash the bin out once in a while at home.
