Info on sewer add on

Nice add on @go_postal_91 - can you provide more information on how you did the sewer hose add on? Thanks in advance. I hate not having a place to really put it.

Sewer Hose Storage

I used the Valterra 64" hose carrier. It will hold two sections of my RhinoFlex sewer hose (after very slight modification to the hose fittings). It cost about $50 on Amazon, but could easily be done cheaper with some large PVC Pipe and a screw-on cap.

I used four large, heavy duty hose clamps to attach to the frame instead of using the screws that come with the carrier.

Sorry for the delayed reply...we were a Fort Wilderness Campground on Disney World for a bit. Great campground!!!

Pantry mod

My wife and I have read all of the mods made to the pantry in the FR3 30DS. She was in Target yesterday and bought a Room Essential Box file item number 081-07-0039 in the school and office supply department. It fit like a glove so we installed a total of four. I used command picture hanging strips to anchor them to the back wall. There is some room to the left for taller items like a broom. Here are some pics.

My wife painted the obnoxious mirror in the kitchen area with chalkboard paint, so now we can write cool thoughts for the day or whatever. I'll post a pic soon.

I just installed a sewer line compartment inside the propane area. It was an easy project, and it's nice to free up the bin where I previously kept it.

I ended up getting a PVC post (5"x 5") at the locals Lowes, and two end caps. I glued one cap and kept the other free. Then cut it to about 6 feet length, and mounted it using four 24" zip ties (also got those at Lowes).

The reason I went this route is that the pre-made 4" sewer hose tube is too small for the Rhino sewer hose couplings. Plus it was a lot cheaper!

Added the same idea to our 30DS last year. One thing you might want to consider adding is a length of 4" plastic rain gutter. It allows you to slide the hose in and out, like a drawer. I added a small piece of 1/2" pvc capped to each end. One to be an end piece so the hose doesn't slide out on one end and the other to act as a pull to slide the gutter in and out (see pic).

Drivmsafe, I like the idea of the drawer, and the hinges on the cap. Looks great!

Mine doesn't slide around that I can tell. Because the hose is about the same length as the tube (see photo). Thanks for sharing. Nicely done!

The hinges and clasp w/cotter pin, to keep the cap closed, was my wife's idea. I got the drawer idea from another post here on the forum. I liked it just because it makes it easier to take the hose out and put it away.

I just drilled a hole and threw a screw in it to keep it from falling off. I may have to upgrade to the hinges though. I like the idea.

Cheers!
