Sewer Hose Storage Using 5X5 Fence Post - Pics

I put together a sewer hose storage box using a 5X5 fence post and gutter. You will see in the pics that I decided to use rivets for most all fastener requirements. By strategically placing the fittings and cutting a few notches, I was able to put the rivet heads to the outside for a clean look. I will install on the TT this Friday and will add more pics then.

To give yourself a little more clearance inside, you can use the rivet mandrels and knock the heads out and flatten the rivets on the inside.

BTW, nice job.

I did the same thing, but I guess the cold weather decided to deform the plastic and it caved in about half way down the post. I was able to get half the hose out, then it split in half due to the other side of the hose was "trapped" behind the indention...

Bought a new hose...

I see you put a lock on it. Who would steal a sewer hose, after the first use!

Anyone wanting a sewer hose. We don't lock ours, but I think I have 4 in different places on the camper.

Why 4? I thought I read before that you plumbed everything to a single discharge so shouldn't only 2 or 3 suffice for redundancy?

We store our TT in a large (500+ campers) storage facility. I will have about $50 worth of hose in there so a lock is a small peace of mind for me.

Some folks at Goshen last year found out their hoses were too short and they came in handy for them. They are left over from previous campers and I bought 2 of the newer Rhino's and never use the others.

I guess I never thought about it. I mean if your a thief, take the spare tire or something, but not the "stinky slinky"!
