New storage for sewer hoses

Georgetown 335....I must have to much time on my hands or I just like tinkering, I was looking for separate storage for my sewer hoses away from everything else. I came up with a idea for additional storage above the propane tank. Looking in that compartment it is open all the way to the stairs on other side. I bought a section of 4 in PVC thin wall pipe and a cap for the side that will be close to stairs and a screw on cap fitting for the propane tank side. I cut strips 1 inch wide out of some thick wall PVC and heated them and bent them around the pipe to form mounts that would attach to the from on both sides. So the mounts are mounted to the chassis on each side and it is about 75 inches long and works great. You can make mounts out of anything I was looking something that would not rust.

I like the idea of using the pvc strips for mounting. I was thinking of doing something similar but hadn't considered mounting it that way.

1" x 1/8" alum straps will work great also and Lowes/HD has them.

I have a 351 and used a 5" PVC post above the propane tanks. Works great.

Good idea, I put mine behind the wheel well on a slight angle so that it would drain.

we did what FL family did - attached with heavy zip ties to the cross beams. Works great so far! I'll take some photos when we are out this weekend.
