Can't have too much hose. We have two grey tanks so we use two 10' hoses connected to a Y, then 15' to the sewer. I already know I will have to construct another storage tube if I want all of the sewer hoses out of the storage compartment. Right now we only store the hose that only sees grey water in there, in a tub.

Hard to drain a black tank with a spare tire.

Do you have a valve at the 'Y' to prevent backflow of the black to the hose connected to grey? Otherwise I don't think you could say 100% that it only sees grey water.

That aside, I'm also carting 2 x 10' and the 15' starter Rhinos. The 2 x 10' fit in the bumper. The 15', the flange and the x-hose I use for black tank flush fit in fence post. Unfortunately the fence post doesn't fit my rhino 90 degree elbow, so it's still riding in the old tote until I work out a better solution. Maybe swapping out to a 45 degree, not sure.

Before we dump the black, we remove the second grey tank hose from the Y and cap the Y. But I do understand your point.

Great job with that post.
I would like to do that on my trailer.
I'm in Canada, I checked Home Depot and Lowes on line and can't find anything.
Where do you people buy those 5x5 fence posts.
The only thing I find in 4" round ABS...and not sure if my Rhino will fit in.
Fellow Canadians who did that...input would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks.

I picked mine up at a Lowes in Michigan during a weekend trip, then I just threw it in the trailer when I came home.
