Storage box for sewer hose?

I would like to find some kind of box that can be mounted to the underside of my rig. You see I have two drains and use 3 hoses with a Y. So I can't use a pipe or bumper. For now I use a tote and throw it in the back of the truck. Ideas?

Look on Camping World. I bought a unit that is made to mount under the trailer. It is like a big white PVC pipe with a cap on the end. Comes in different lengths. Get the longest one. It works great.

Still a work in progress (should finish today).
The front one holds my folding ladder (not there because my locking system goes in today.)

I need something more like a box, since the the hoses stay connected by the Y pipe.

Looks good. I would like to take a closer look at Goshen. Why did you chose to locate them to the front of the unit instead of the back?

One option would be to store the "Y" seperate and do something for the hoses like Lou did. I keep my sewer stuff in a plastic container inside the bay storage area and don't have any problems with it smelling.

not super cheap but works well. i leave the clear elbow on there and it still fits. just measure the hose with anything else that will be left attached. there is one larger threaded fitting i keep in a ziplock bag in storage elsewhere.
the square devices posted above are likely cheaper..

Me too! I used plastic gutters from Lowe's for the slides. They work really well and are uniform where as the ones you get from Home Depot are offset and don't work as well.

I originally stored my sewer hoses in 2 Rubber Maid totes- but it took up a lot of room in the basement storage. I made 2 of these post tubes and do just what Terier suggests - take off the "Y". I store it, my 90-degree elbow sewer connection and my sewer donut all in a small tote. I put the 90-degree elbow into big ziploc bag and put caps onto all 3 ends of the "Y".
