Storage for sewer drain line

Hey folks new to campers this is my first one.
Silly question, I have a 2021 XLR Boost 335LRLE and do not know where to store the sewer drain line. The manufacturer said there are hangers under the unit but I haven’t found them.

Do you have a hollow rear bumper? That's where a lot of folks store their's.

Another option a lot of people do is to get a length of PVC pipe and hang it underneath somewhere. Glue on a threaded female coupling on each end, then use male screw on plugs. A length of plastic gutter with ends also acts as a tray rather than use a pipe.

Similar to above, but instead of pipe I used vinyl fence post and caps. The vinyl gutter tray works nicely and can double as a sewer hose support, if you don't have one or need to improvise sometimes.

I found the build plans for the hose storage somewhere on this site. Maybe from Herk?

Thanks for the quick reply.
I thought of the same thing with pipe under the unit, but when the rep said there were hangers under the unit I thought I was missing something.

No bumper on the back of the unit oxcamper

Same. I built these and documented them for my site:

Mine are in the bumper with the Campco magnetic cap (already lost the original). The Rhino L angle connector plus the rubber drain adaptor are in a small plastic box that gets a thorough wash plus soak with a bit of bleach before being sun dried when I get home.

I also use black tank flush before I leave the campsite.

I have a Separate Rubbermaid tote just for Saur connectors and sewer lines. Are use the rhino sewer tube system so that the hoses all collapse when you’re not using them.

Are they Zip Ties holding it on? If so, you may want to consider UV resistant ones. I used black ones and traveled for thousands of miles with my storage box on the bumper. The only real difference is mine didn't stick out past the edge like yours does.

But, it's a good option for those who don't want to DIY.

I use a tote with a closable lid and it’s big enough to hold the hose and and fittings because the hose accordiions. I store it in my outside storage

A bit spendy but made by people who make rv dumping their business.
I just installed on my Hathaway.

I purchased one of these after someone stole the original one that came with my RV by the third day of ownership.

As luck would have it...I lost one of the cap ends sometime during the return from my previous trip. I was inspecting before this trip and noticed it was gone. Ordered a replacement and will use some locking mechanism on both so they won't fall out again.

On our old trailer I used a small tool box for the elbow, kneeling pad, and gloves. Held on with two large square ubolts around the bumper.

Funny story about the 90 water elbow that I use for strain relief on my city water. I left it on the box as we packed up outside of Santa Cruz. The picture is from 200 miles later upon arrival in Coloma. How it never fell off is a mystery considering we took Hwy 17 (twisty, turns and very bouncy).Click image for larger version
