sewer hose support system

Everyone has used the sewer hose accordion type supports, but I found that they can be problematic, especially if you need to extend them out pretty far. Sometimes you need more than one hose and they end up being too much.

I've added aluminum mesh gutter guards that go into the supports before you lay your hose into the supports. I purchased 10 of these and they store in the RV rear bumper. Home Depot they are about $3 each, maybe a bit much, but they won't be affected by rain, snow or sun and should last forever.

Here's the two items.

Good find!


Seems like all to often I am walking stores in search of items that will be used for something other than their intended purpose. Actually I enjoy the search and finding a more affordable option than what is offered by manufacturers to solve the problem.

I built my own support system.

First, I got PVC gutter.........cut into 5 foot sections. Have four sections, they overlap if needed. Sewer hose sits in that, tightened down with those new twist-tie thingies Lowe's carries. That gives the hose rigidity.

Second, I built a 'ladder' (sort of a temporary goal post type) out of PVC pipe, elbows, and stands......with holes up and down the supports. I pin it wherever it needs to provide support under the drain. The PVC ladder support holds up the gutter. Painted the PVC brown so it's not as ugly.

I actually had been doing that very thing and it's a great solution. I used them for over a year and they work great, especially for long term stays. But when I found these I determined that storage would be somewhat easier, plus these are bendable and will fit the channels in a more exact manner so I decided to change to these. It was actually in the gutter section that I found these when I was looking to replace mine because one section had been cracked.
