Protecting fifth wheel drain pipes....

Anyone have suggestions on protecting the drain pipes passing thru the front storage of their fifth wheel.? Not model specific persay, just protection from sliding objects that could cause a cracked drain pipe.

I put down rubber mats on the storage floor. It keeps the stuff from sliding around. You can get good ones at Tractor Supply.

I haven't stacked anything that high to run the risk.

I put a small wood strip across the width to prevent storage containers full of all that STUFF from sliding about and damaging my drain.

I went to the trouble of relocating some basement storage pipes, it made for an interesting weekend learning project. Hacksaw for removal, PVC primer & glue, lots of fittings and then pool noodles for protection after the fact. You'll also find wiring and HVAC projects to add to the list when you do your pipes, but you will have more storage space. Now the question I over loaded!
