Quick Tips: Closed Carry

Quick Tips - Sewer hose holder


I own a 29-foot Class B-plus motorhome and have never had a place to put the sewer hoses. The owner’s manual says to store the hoses in an exterior compartment, which only causes a mess. I purchased two hose carriers and spray-painted a portion to match the paint scheme on the motorhome. I am temporarily using a strap and a rope to mount them, but am currently on the lookout for permanent straps that are the correct color to match the paint. Storing the hoses this way eliminates messy and smelly compartments.

  1. For our sewer hose I use a very large zip lock bag. It holds 25′ hose plus the elbow and straight connector. I rinse out hose store in compartment with water hoses. No smell either.

  2. Plumbers tape and a few self tapping screws will do the job for you, especially if the hose carriers are attached to the rig underneath.
