2014 Trilogy - 3850RL - Sewer Hose Storage

One minor disappointment with my Trilogy was the lack of storage space for the sewer hoses. I don't like carrying them in the basement, but have by using a large plastic tub. After some thought I found a workable solution.

I purchased two sewer hose carriers from Amazon. They are the 64" black models. Amazon.com: Valterra A04-0153XBK Black 64" EZ Hose Carrier: Automotive

You can see them mounted in the first picture, just under the forward section of the basement. I attached them to the frame on the curbside of the camper. Since they were not long enough to reach the roadside frame, I used machine screws, washers, and locking nuts through the battery compartment bottom grates.

Now I don't have to worry about carrying them inside the basement. Once installed, drill some drain holes in the underside of the tubes for drainage and aeration. Of course, make sure your hoses are not in there when you drill

Excellent job
I agree, they should have provided a place for the sewer hose.
I mounted a 6" pvc pipe under the frame, I have a 90 deg. elbow attached and don't want to remove it all the time.

Good solution John. cypressloser, I plan to do the same thing. I recently saw a Trilogy with three tubes mounted. One was a 6" with the other 2 smaller. I have no idea what all that storage is for.

It could be for fishing poles or garden hose, folding ladder, flagpole, etc.
