Tmilicia, that's what I do too. The container let's me flood the box with bleach water... Take it out... let the parts and hose dry in the sun. Clean and sanitary. That's 30 feet of hose, too.

Yeah I would use the forward compartment but I've got the gen in there. I'm looking to see if I can get it on the shelf on top as a temporary solution till I can get the permanent one fashioned up.

My pass through compartment is filling up fairly fast.

Thanks for the ideas guys. It's helping me look at this from other angles.

Another option is the Lippert under trailer storage drawers. Not every RV has room for them underneath but if you do have the space, it's a great system. Not 100% water tight though so you have to watch what you store in them. Here's a link: Underchassis Storage System

I bought some 4 inch diameter, 10 ft long PCV pipe from Home Depot ($8 bucks each) put a cap on one end (found a vented one so the water could get out) and a screw on cap at the other end to keep everything in. Works great, just got some 6 inch screw band clamps and strapped them at the rear.

a little off topic, but what do you think about your 29 udql5? How does the truck do pulling it?

FYI, here is my copied version of what others have done.

What did you do to your Hyperlite XLR today?

Very easy mod but I do have a large plastic container that I wash the hose in after I'm back home (like WW suggested...).

I had not thought about a bucket but that is definitely a simple option as a stop gap till I find a final solution.

I've found the under mounted tunes on Amazon for 40-75 bucks depending on length, I'll look at Lowes today at gutter material and see what I can come up with.

Thanks for the comments and ideas.

Is your truck a shortbox? If it is how is your turning radius and clearance? And by chance could you measure your pin box from the center of the pin to the back edge towards the camper. I just ordered a nitro 305 but no one around by me has one in stock to check out.
Thanks
