At first i had a hose holder i bought from camping world but certain hose connections won't fit in it so i put it in the bumper but first i drilled a small hole completely through the bumper and rubber cap so i could put a wire about 6guage tent pin hold down pin to keep the cap doesn't come out going down the highway its easy and cheap to do.

I have the sewer solution and it is great but not ideal for regular campground connection. In other words keep your 4" hoses too. It did make for a great way to drain your tanks when you don't have a standard RV sewer connection. I can empty my tanks at home through a clean -out on the side of my house.
Sewer solution also has a small footprint for storage compared to the standard stinky slinky.

I have 2014 FR3 30D and I use a plastic box which has a double lid that over laps when you close it. I can't remember which hoses I using, but they have caps to install on the ends of the hose so no fluids can leak. I carry 2-10 foot sections of hose. I keep everything in this box that pertains to the septic. I also keep my garden hose I only use to rinse my hoses out with.

OK, I don't have an FR3, but a universal solution - A standard "stinky-slinky" along with elbow(s) and other fittings fit nicely coiled in a 5 gallon bucket. You can get good plastic ones and lids at you local big hardware store...

I copied an idea I found online. Used a 4x4 pvc fence post about 7ft long. Inside this a 3 1/2 pvc rain gutter slides full length in like a drawer. 4x4 end caps are used as the tube end and one end of the gutter. The inside end of the gutter uses a gutter end cap. I store 2 full lengths of hose with adapters. The tube is bolted cross wise under the trailer frame. Works great, easy to clean.

Before the snow pounder us I added a few white PVC fence posts on steel hangers inside and above the LP tank. these run across the coach and butt up against the back of the second step. I drilled one inch holes in the square posts for air flow and added a tin flashing to the bottom pop riveted the flashing in place as a heat shield. Isis this to take advantage of the open space above the LP tank. Same space ample space exists above the generator bay.

Did it cuz I wanted the hoses not to be in contact with the storage bins. I carry three male to female 10 footers and one 20 footer. It's crazy to carry so much sewer pipe but I use it often when we safari camp or park face to face when camping with friends.

This keeps it out of the way and ensures not cross contamination with water hoses.

Also added post to store my seven foot collapsable ladder in the same area. I'll take some pics tomorrow and post them.
