Spent sometime today installing a Stinky Slinky Holder like others have. Used the Northern Tool 6" conduit and some pvc from mendards. A quick spray paint worked but will look for something more durable since this is right be hide the gas tank.
Thanks to others for coming up with this solution.

Forgot to take pics but also installed the 3 pvc shut off valves like others have for the outside drains.

Still working on the right magnet solution for the bathroom door to main living room. I have strong magnets but the screws and washers are preventing the magnets from touching each other. I will be working on this soon.

Steve, I'd like to do this and free up the space my sewer hose box is taking up (in the generator box (no genny)). I didn't realize how nice it is made, looks good! I wonder how you attach the caps to the PVC?. I don't see a problem with black paint if it sticks. You used to be able to get Krylon for plastic that seemed to bond nicely. I have seen black PVC, but not in 6"

HD and Lowes has them... even in bronze. It stays put... I don't even close the door while traveling. I have an extra one... too bad you are 2000 miles away I put them on almost all the interior doors in the house, too. If you like to open the windows when its nice, they will keep doors from slamming if its breezy.

WW,
I had a tub for the sewer hose the first trip out. Just knew I needed it outside of the camper. The setup I "copied " was easy to do. The PVC pipe was ~$22, the conduit covers ~$50, a can of Rustoleum ~$3. After painting the PVC, I just slid the covers on. They were actually pretty tight (used a rubber mallet to tap them in). I should have left the paint dry longer than 1 hour but I was in a time crunch. In the end, very easy project and HIGHLY recommend it.

WW,
Finally got the magnets to work. Used a rubber grommet in each magnet to take up the extra space in the hole of the magent. Now the magnets are touching each other instead of the washers. BUT I do like your nicer door holder. Will have to change my out in the future.

Been busy. Like WW, my gen/battery rack hit my rear truck bumper on tight turns so I cut it off to fit the frame, welded on new angle iron plus angle iron for a second battery, and then repainted it.

I also installed a 3000 watt Pure Sine Wave Inverter in the cargo compartment. I don't need that much power (and I don't have the batteries to support it, even with a second one added) but you never know in the future. For now I'll use it to power the TV/120VAC outlets, Tassimo coffee maker, and occasional microwave use when we are off the grid and don't want the genny on. I added a second transfer switch so the system will automatically select between shore power, generator, or inverter. I also installed a relay that shuts down 120 VAC power to the converter, Air Conditioner, refrigerator and hot water heater when on inverter power.

While I had it torn apart I added an LED light for the cargo compartment, with a switch by the door.

Because the inverter needed 4/0 cables and a 400A fuse, the cables were a problem to connect to the batteries, so I added a junction box that has the 400A fuse and all main power connections.
