Tote tank hose storage?

I'm wondering if anyone has come up with a solution to store their tote tank hose under the trailer? I have the rhinoflex unit, easy to find a tube to fit the length, but the end is 6" tall with the cap on. I picked up a D&W super slider for my 15 foot rhinoflex, but the tote tank hose end is too big. I was thinking of buying another short one and notching the end out to let the tote hose stick out. Won't work with the twist lock doors, but would with the D&W swing hatch. What is everyone else doing? Thanks!

The 5x5 post won't fit the giant elbow on the tote tank hose either.................... 6" tall with the cap, no cap, about 5.5.

I considered the fence post for my main sewer hose, as the 15' rhinoflex is too long for the factory installed sewerhose holder. My frame is much lower than the body and I think the fencepost looks kinda silly on similar designs. I went with this, Sanitubes / Sewer Hose Carriers / NEW!! SUPER-SLIDER Adjustable SUPER-TUBE - DW Inc. for the 15' rhino, but the tote tank hose elbow doesn't fit in.

Trying to find something I can keep this in.............RhinoFLEX RV Sewer Hose Kit for Portable Wastewater Tank - 3' Long Camco Plumbing CAM39768

I used a 6 inch pvc and a cap kit you can get on amazon. Made 2 units the full width of my 5er and store 4 sewer hoses and all the fittings no problem. I painted the pvc and door black to blend in with the underneath of the 5er.

I replaced the tote hose 90 degree end with a straight bayonet fitting. Amazon.com: Camco 39783 RhinoFLEX Bayonet Fitting with Locking Ring: Automotive

Then I just use my clear 45 degree swivel fitting that I already have for flushing the tank to fill the tote.

All the parts fit in my storage tube.

Hope this helps.

I do believe this is the best way to go about it. Though I'm wondering if a 90 degree swivel fitting will fit. My dump valve is much closer to the ground than I think it should be. Guess I can buy one on amazon and return it if it doesn't fit. Thanks for the tip! I'm also debating mounting and ammo can under the left side of the trailer to keep the doughnut and any other surplus fittings in that don't fit elsewhere.
