I have 40 feet of hose and the ends in one tray. Love the mod!

I keep 30' (20' and 10') in each of my 2 trays. I'm kicking around getting another 10' of hose in two 5' sections. They should all fit nicely.

Okay I see this won't sound right, but why do you have so much hose...

Why would you need 60' of slinky? Do you dump in the neighbors site?

First, I usually don't use all of it. I had one occasion where I needed almost all of it for hookups. I don't recall where I was- but it happened. The want for the 5' pieces is to just use less hose (instead of using a 10', many times I only need a 5' section).

I have 2 sewer outlets on the camper. They're a good 10'-15' apart. I don't have them plumbed together (not sure I'm enthusiastic about doing it since the axles are between them and both sewer connections have gray and black tanks behind them.

I generally put my wye at the site's sewer connection and then use varying lengths of hose from the sewer outlets on the camper to the wye.

I see two holes makes a difference

It does. I think I could lessen how much sewer hose I carry by changing my configuration of how I connect the wye and whatnot. A lot of people will plumb the 2 holes together - I'm just not sure it would work for me.

Don't know what that has to do with it, my rear tank is behind the axle also. I ran the hard plumbing inside the axle frame work 2 x 4 tubing (torsion axle). If you run it close to the frame and secure it, it should work great and eliminate all the slinky hose and the time hooking it up and messing with it.

Lou, just wanted to say your ideas are going a long way. Old post but new information for me. I have a new project this weekend! Thanks for your great idea. Not only have i been looking for a good storage solution for my sewer hose for a very long time but as you have shown, it's a good solution for other things. I think my folding camping chairs might find their way into one of these if I can get them to fit and fishing rods.
