Sewer Hose Holder

Checked this mod off the list yesterday. Removed the (too short) round tube that came with it and installed 6 feet of 5x5 vinyl post with a vinyl gutter slide out tray.

This is one of my favorite mods. Gonna be the first thing done when I receive my tt in the spring. I especially like the gutter slide out inside.

It was easier than I thought it would be. Total job start to finish was less than an hour. Should be really nice when leaving a site compared to putting it in a container.

I drilled holes in the one end cap & bottom of fence post to let any moisture drain & dry out. Also put end caps on the gutter.

I've done this mod on 3 campers now and it is still one of my favorites. Nicely done.

Very nice job! I did similar mod on my first rig, a TT; actually did 2 post carriers on that one (had separate grey tank and had to use 2 long hoses every time). Kept the posts but haven't installed on the 5'er yet, been just storing in large bin in front storage are for now. May still do it in long run.

Looks great! Did you use the 8x1/2" lath screws for all of it or do you have washers and nuts on the inside of the fence post?

I used the lath screws for everything, even into the frame. I've used them on a few other projects. They are short, tough, and have an oversized head. If they don't hold up I'll go to bolts, washers, and nuts.
