That be a lot of work hangin' those tubes.....

I just use a plastic tote for mine with all the sewer stuff in it. I have another for all the other non-sewer hook-ups. Store them in my Rv basement between uses. Pull them out, empty them, hook everything up. More organized and efficient. Has really cut down on my set up time and lost pieces.

I also bought a telescoping painters pole with a small roller attached to it. Took the roller off and now I have a 8' hook to pull things out with. No more crawling into the basement to grab things. One of the best ideas I have ever found in the forums.

I have several plastic totes that are stored in the basement of our 34RL, each is labeled for what is in the container. Such as potable water lines, sewer hose and fittings, electric components, satellite wiring and connections along with the gas grill. These are stackable and two containers are stacked together, so as we set up the first container we would need will be on top and so forth. Also what is required for the driver side connections (sewer, water and electric) are on that side and the other containers are on the curb side It may take a little time to organize at first but when we are setting up and taking down everything is right there where I need it, no searching for the item when I need it.

Mine is in a 12 x 18" crate that resembles a milk crate but rectangular. Throw all the connections and doughnut in there. It stores in the first basement compartment to the left of sewer connection. Not great but works.

Great minds think a like. We use a Home Depot bucket and keep the slinky and accessories in it. The Rhino would not fit in the 4" bumper with the ends on and it was a PITA putting them on. Only did it once and it never again. We have an 8 foot bed on the truck and it sits pretty high, so I had hubby put a hook on the end so I could "reach" things. Use it for the basement as well.

Plastic tub with tight fitting lid. Holds 2 lengths of hose, 90* fittings, bottles of chemicals, gloves, etc. A dedicated tub. No other secondary uses.

I thought that for years til someone showed me that it did!! Always carried mine in a tote.

You have to twist the fitting so the ribs and the tabs are in the corners like a square, and it fits nicely into the 4" bumper. The elbow at the end fits too, but without its cap.

I know there are mods............gutter pipe or PVC under the trailer....and I will do one of those when I get a Round Tuit. I'm out of Round Tuits right now. Till then, it's just in a garbage bag in the basement.

Any better ideas???
I use something like this.


Robot Check

The one I have is a little bigger and was less expensive. I found it in a dollar store. Actually I use two, one for hoses and one for connectors. They seal tight and are easy to wash out and keep clean. Make sure you measure the basement opening so you don't buy one too big.

I think I have 4 all together. They come in handy for storing a lot of things.

My dealer in South Carolina (not CW) provided me with a sewer hose, water hose, water pressure regulator, and a bag of other (un) necessary items. Even though I traded an older camper in, they said that I needed new stuff to go with the new camper. All I said was "Thanks".
