Sewer Hoses

Hi,

Just bought a 2016 Cedar Creek 34RE. Love it--just wondering why the space for the sewer hose is only big enough for the hose and not the locking section. Seems like a poor design. Using a large Rubbermaid tub again

I agree!! I think it was designed by an engineer that never used an RV of any kind.

I end up shaving the tabs off to get mine to fit....I also made an pvc pipe to hold my extra hose and attached it under the frame.

Where is your storage space located. Some units do not have the 4" bumper that many people store them in, I don't think that is such a great place being they are normally wet and will cause it to rust from the inside out over time. How much time I do not know. I couldn't fit the Rhino type hose in mine with the ends on them, got tired of putting them back on and taking them off all the time. So with help on installation I just put 5" fence post under the unit. Using 5" it allowed me to also store 4" pvc gutter with the hose inside, now I don't have the the pee traps with positive flow. I'm not sure that I have even seen a CC with a bumper which IMO is stupid. At least with the 4" bumper which will stick out about 6" before you hit your fiberglass incase you back into something. Height from the ground is no problem being the axle is lower then the fence post. I use to carry them in a sealed plastic container that took up a lot of room. Besides that poor design, your R/A from the furnace is non ducted so you could pull smells into your living area unless you have walled sealed compartment to keep them in....

I just brought a plastic box from Walmart, well I actually got two, one for putting my water hoses in. They stack on top of each other. That way they stay separate and no contact.

Yep even some 6 inch PVC and a gutter with some all thread and couple pieces of steel you can mount it underneath long enough for 20 ft of the heavy duty hose...couplings heck...my hose is too big to fit in the bumper much less the couplings...lol lol

That's fine if you have a bumper to install your device but it won't work on a Cedar Creek no bumper!

I carry my 50' of sewer hose in two totes. I also do not use the sewer hose compartment on my 34RL, it is just an empty space. I have three totes labeled sewer hose, black water hose and sewer hose support with fittings. I have found this to be the best way and have transferred the containers from my previous 5er to our 34RL last year.

I have found with the placement of the sewer drain location on my 34RL. That at some old campgrounds I have need at least 30' of sewer hose to empty the tanks, so I am glad that I have kept all of my sewer hoses from the past.

If your 34RE has the same storage compartment as my 2013 36CKTS here's what you can do.


Rhino-Flex will not fit.





Cut out the door assembly and mount it on a 4 3/4" X 4 3/4" OD PVC fence post cover




Original holder on top.
New holder on bottom with PVC rain gutter to hold Rhino-
flex.



Installed and ready to go.





C.B.
