5th wheel sewer hose?

For those of you with 5th wheels, what accommodations have you made to carry it? With my 285 dlr Arctic Wolf I installed a 6" thin wall pipe just behind the front legs.

Separate plastic tote tubs for the different types of hoses. Black, gray, fresh.

Clear Rubbermaid plastic locking lid tote big enough to store all of my sewer system accessories that fits in the basement.

I can fit one of my Rhino hoses in the rear bumper...but I don't.

On our old camper, we did the vinyl fence post mod for the sewer hose. I then took a small storage box and zip-tied it to the bumper for the various accouterments ("Y", elbow, black tank flush hoses). Worked a treat.

The new camper came with the "Valterra Sewer Hose Storage Tube". It holds about 20' of hose. I kept the storage box and just keep that in the basement hatch for extra hose and the goodies. I was just telling my wife that I'd like to add some vinyl fence posts onto this camper for more storage and to get it out of the basement hatch.

We have a plastic tote tub for our sewer hoses (and I use the RhinoFLEX that condenses down), another for all my cable/satellite TV cables, etc. and another for our chocks and another for our water hose and a really big one for our 50-amp power cord. And another for tire-changing tools and various supplies.

It makes for extremely good use of storage space, looks neat and is easy to get to anything we need. It's the first time in 17 years of RVing that I've been this organized - and I get a lot of compliments on the neatness from other campers around me.

Separate storage totes and each is labeled as to what is in them.

I put 2 hose sections in the back bumper which are used on a regular basis. 2 extra sections are stored in a tote in the basement waiting to replace the others.
