2016 nitro 29u fiver

So the wife and I picked up our new 29udql5 fifth wheel today and apart from the unexpected fifth wheel hitch that required assembly. Still not super happy about that. It's been good this far as we're priming the load. Click image for larger version

One question I have for you guys, what did you do/how did you store your sewer lines?

I'm currently working out options for putting it underneath but figured I'd ask since this has "solved problem" written all over it.

Thanks in advance.

Congratulations, nice rig!

Look at post #3 on this thread, 5' fence post, with a gutter insert for a tray. Pretty slick.
Storage box for sewer hose?

Another option;
Another Sewer Hose Storage Mod


Lots of ideas on this topic, use the search button, you find tons of posts.

The Thunderbolt line comes with a sewage hose under body carrier. I'm not sure who manufacturers it, but if you ask your dealer, I'm sure they could find out and also get you a price on one. It's a round tube that bolts to your frame with a door on each end. It will work with most standard hoses but not with the fancier ones with larger ends on it.

What type hitch did you get? Do you have the Ford OEM 5th prep? Great looking truck and trailer. Enjoy!

I guess I'm the only one who throws it in a Hefty bag and keeps it in an outside storage compartment? Been doing it 25 years.

That works too and we used to do the same but coiled ours in a 5 gallon bucket with a lid. Watertight and odorproof. It did take up storage space though which is why I like the underbody systems.

Yes it has the 5th wheel prep. I got a 20k Reese so when I upgrade the truck in the future I have room to grow.

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.

I keep mine coiled up in a shallow "Rubbermaid type" container and store it on the shelf above my generator.
I have the underbody storage tube mounted by the factory too, but I haven't tried using it yet.

You can buy the sewer storage tubes a camping world but they only will hold the strait hose not any that have a 90 or 45 on the end that is the same for the one on the Thunderbolt.
I purchased a conduit kit from Northern Tool that comes with brackets and all and all you do is get a pice of 6" PVC pipe and put the ends on and it will hold all of your sewer connections.
There is a thread out there with pictures someone posted with using this set up.

I bought a Rubbermaid tote with a seal and store in the forward hatch. But have been wanting to add the storage pipe underneath. Just haven't had time yet. Also already have bought cable sewer valves and haven't been able to swap them out yet either.
