I am getting some 8" PVC pipe with ends as we speak from a a friend of mine. I am going to hang it behind the boxes where I can store a few sections of 4" plastic gutters and more sewer line. I am going to put it the full widht of the camper, if I don't get the 10 foot section and put it diagonally under the rig. I will then paint it black and put a threaded rod through the caps with wing nuts on them so they are easily removed. That way all this stuff is out of the way. What brought this up is last week, the CG sewer connections were 10 inches out of the ground so I bought 3 sections of 10 foot plastic gutter and made a holder for my hoses so the waste water would drain without having to walk it out. This has happened to me twice now and I will be prepared for the next time. This how I solved the drainage problem last week.



So, now I want the PVC pipe behind the storage boxes for the materials you see there.

Nice setup, but seems like a lot of trouble just to keep from walking the slinky. If you hard plumb the rear tank to the black tank, you can eliminate the wye and some guttering and blocking.

golfmedik, I have the Siera sister to your 365SAQ. They r nice. I noticed the pinbox bike rack in your pic. I have been looking for one for yrs. Did u buy it or make it? At 42' vs 38 of my old 5er I think this needs to go on the front burner.

I made it..well the receiver that is. It started out as a 12" long piece of 10" I-beam. Cut it to 22 1/2*(angle of pin box) and flipped it over, cut one ear of the flange off and welded it together. Bought a $14 receiver tube from Harbor Freight and welded it on top. Afterwards, I couldn't open my toolbox on my truck all the way. So, I bought a piece of 2"x1/2" stick steel($5 tractor supply) and another receiver tube and added the top to it. I have a hanging bike rack that my son's bike wouldn't fit on, so I bought the platform rack from Discountramps.com for $140.

What it looked like first...before the top addition.

Thank you for your assistance. That is basically what I figured I was going to have to do. I too will have a tool box issue. Pics really helped. Safe Camping

Make sure you measure after you have a bike rack in mind. The newer 365s have a more pointed nose, so you will have to think about the width of the handle bars of the bikes. You don't want them touching the nose piece. Also, it was difficult but not impossible to put bolts in pin box. Study it first so you will know where you can put the bolts. I was able to get mine farther down but it was difficult. Next time I will put the bottom two bolts a little higher up so they are easier to get to. The bikes ride amazingly still there. I know it was overkill, but I used grade 8 bolts. I get asked about the receiver every where we go. Such a simple mod that has really made carrying bikes very easy and hassle free. I load them in the bed of the truck, back up close, load them onto rack and back on under it to hitch up. Very easy to do.
