Spent a lot of years in the plumbing trade and never heard of 5" PVC. Good luck looking for it.

Several members here have used a fence post & caps to store sewer hose in. It been a while since I searched but I did come across a 5 in wide post either at Lowes or Home Depot online.

Check out the following link for ideas:
Moved the Sewer Hose

Another great link for mods:

Why not just get an RV sewer hose carrier?

Thanks for all the suggestions, never thought about the fence post option?

Have looked at the RV Sewer Hose Carrier at Campting World, a bit too bulky and pricey, you know us RV's always trying to save a dime (oh 2011 save a dollar)?
Ther is a outfit out of Las Vegas FLEX PVC who has 5 inch PVC (5.5 ODX 5.0ID) in 3 4 and 5 foot lengts, but he wants an arm and a legs plus shipping and handling/

Will defintely go to Lowes and check out the fence post option, as you know drain connector collar is 4 1/2 inches in diameter!

Went to home depot and loews this morning, both has same selection 4 and 5 inch vinyl square frence posts so settled for the 4 x 4 post with caps - works great as sewer collar is 4 and a half slides down diagonally , caps don't fit quite snuggly but have resolved that with velcro!

Thanks for all your suggestions

I liked the idea of this mod so I went to my local Lowes here in San Antonio, TX and the manager told they are about to stop carrying these vinyl fence parts and so are discounting them to get rid of stock. He gave me a fifty percent discount and let me use my ten percent military discount on top of that. So 8 foot 5" square post and two square caps for about $14 here. This was just this past Wednesday 11 Jan 2012.
