Lightbulb Hose Storage (Non Sewer)

Hey all,

Looking for someone that may have done a mod for their fresh or flush hose storage. My cubby needs to be decluttered (per the ol lady) and I need some ideas on how to better store/access my hoses on my TT.
Thinking maybe a box mounted somewhere under the trailer? I carry ~40' of fresh hose, and a 30' black flush hose.

Pics would be great if you got em.

Thanks for the ideas!

Maybe mount a hose reel (not the spinning kind but the coil the hose on it kind) in a compartment? I have actually been looking at the same thing to streamline.

I've been trying to work out a spinning wheel kind, with 2 wheels so I can coil the FW hose and the power cord. Black flush hose is a X-hose and takes up no room in the same compartment with the stinky slinky.

That's pretty much what I wanted to do. What did you use for the reel?

Cheapie air hose reel from harbor freight I think I paid $17-18 ea for them and $45 from the box from lowes. I really liked the mor ryde unit but couldnt justify the cost.

This kills two birds so to speak. I am ready to give it a try as soon as it stays warm.
If I was to do it again I would get a piece of sheetmetal and beef up the top of the box, I may do that after a couple of uses

Thanks, I'll have to go check air hose reels. I know the normal water hose ones I've looked at are too tall for the compartment in the TT. My dogbones will just be loose around the bottom. I believe it was only about 18" tall at the opening (or somewhere around there) so I wouldn't have room for a box too. Hmm, maybe just an open topped, walled off area for the dogbones.......

Pretty nice Gasman! I just want to get my hoses out of the cubby all together Is my problem, but I like the reel idea!
I'm thinking about taking one of those long tupperware boxes and some "L" metal brackets and making kind of a drawer/box under the coach. This would also help keep the hoses clean.
Tis the season to start your mods right!?

JCamper Lippert makes an under body storage box you might want to check out, sure to be more secure than tupperware.
Kaadk There are some threads in the modifaction fourm on this you might want to check out, thats where I got inspired so to speak.
regards

I just mounted a home hose holder on the front wall of the basement. Store 100' X hose in a coffee can for the black tank flush.

No longer carry the black hose shown on the holder.
