Is that maybe for the power cord? One of the trailers my dad had back when I was growing up had a door like that over a compartment with his power cord. The cord on that trailer was wired in though so if yours was the same it would have already been in there...

I miss read his post that is actually his sewer hose storage compartment. It sounds like it only will hold the hose . The better hoses have bigger ends and won't fit.

A storage compartment is a storage compartment. Nothing says it has to store the sewer hose. Especially if it's only 3.5". I don't think I've seen a hose under 4" diameter.

Like I said, I've seen that type of door over a compartment where a power cord was kept. Open the door, pull out cord and plug in. His obviously doesn't have that since the cord's not in there now but maybe it did once upon a time?

Sewer hose holder

Here's what you can do.

Cut out and attach you sewer hose door assembly to a length of 4 1/2" X 4 1/2" ID fence post cover as seen below.




Using a length of pvc rain gutter make a tray for your hose and attachments.

Top is original FR hose holder.
Bottom is new holder with gutter tray in front.



finished

I opened the links to what you purchased and I see they are 5" hose and clear adapter for filling a tote tank. What tote tank did you get and where do you store it and can these pieces be stored with the tote tank? or did you buy the 5" for TT tank dumping? cbvp made an excellent suggestion but you'll need larger materials for that size hose ends.

Dale:

I was also thinking where did he get 5" sewer hose

The links show a 5 FOOT hose not 5 inch diameter.
The clear adaptor is 5 INCHES long not 5 inch in diameter.

They both have the standard 4" sewer hose couplings.

Ok, I stand corrected. Never seen an onboard hose storage like that before. If they got em I wonder why they don't use them more often. Seems like that'd be a welcome addition to many a trailer.

The hose would fit in fine if i did not have the connectors on it.
