Sewer Hose Storage

Just purchased a 3650 RE Trilogy 2 months ago and was wondering why it did not have a means to store the sewer hose. Seems odd that it did not have that capability unless I am missing something here.

There are a lot of different makes and models which do not provide hose storage. If you do a search you would see all types of modifications for storage from tubes or PVC pipe with gutters mounted underneath. For me I just use a plastic tote box with lid and store it in the basement.

X2 the tote (with a tight lid) in the basement.


Every Year as I travel my local highways I see one or more sewer hoses that have freed themselves from captivity .
If it is in a tote/tub.. in the basement.. along with all the attachments it should be happy to stay onboard.


Keep on hand.... Gloves, Hand sanitizer, Paper towel, Putty knife to dig out (if necessary) the sani-dump inlet and more length of sewer hose than you think you need....others will add to the list ...I'm sure.


It's no fun to get all set-up and then find that your sewer hose won't reach.

Where did you purchase the rack and tote box? I have seen many 2" racks rated at 500 lbs but my receiver is a 1" and I have yet to find a rack.

Bob

EDIT: I did manage to find a rack on Amazon but not the storage box. The ones I saw (35 gal and 48 gal) were too big to fit in this particular rack.

I purchased the rack online. It is made by Curt same company that make the hitches. If I remember it's rated for 300 lb.the tote I purchased from Canadian tire here in Canada but any Home Depot should Carry them. Works really well I use it to store our big mat in as well.
