Hose storage

Good Morning Campers...

So I've been searching the Internet looking for a creative way to store the black/gray water hose. There some very crafty ideas out there but haven't found how to apply to our GT 251DS.

Has anyone made modification to story their black/gray water hose? If so how well is it working out? Send some pics to share.

Thanks

I have a small side compartment which I just take a few large garbage bags and roll a hose in each and put them in that compartment.
When ready to setup and decide if I need 1 or 2 hoses I just pull out the bags. I have considered PVC pipes underneath but have not found a good location in my rig that they would get hit or damages.

I agree on the PVC storage, that's the direction I'd like to go but don't see an optimal spot. I'm current doing something similar as your garbage bag idea just looking to free up space.

Thanks

A while ago a forum member posted a good idea for hose storage. He used a section of PCV pipe mounted over his propane tank running across the M H. I have not done this yet but on my 378 I think I have room.

we did the fence post mod over the propane tank - you have to angle it back towards the battery compartment/entry stairs to make it fit. We used some extra-strength zip ties to hook it one.
Have to say the "poop slide" as we fondly refer to it - is one of my favorite modifications, easy to access yet out of the way and doesn't take up any additional room in our bins. I think we spent maybe $80 all in - have to make sure to get the 5x5 fencepost and the the correct size gutter. Plus we had to get a rivet gun (and I've had fun with that one on some other projects too!) so that's been nice.

I'll see if I can find some photos tonight -

I saw this modification several months ago. I went out and purchased the 5" square pvc material and installed it. It has made storing the gray/black hose so much easier.

I have 3 lengths of hose. 2 go in a long Plastic Xmas paper storage bin which fits in the rear cross cubby where my electrical is. The other is the one I use if we're close to the dump port. That coils in a 5 gallon bucket and lives in a cubby with my wash hose, rubber gloves and sanitizer.

I have a plastic box I brought at Walmart that I store all my sewer stuff in and another plastic box to store all my fresh water stuff in, it's easy to get too. I have plenty of room in my basement
