If you are handy, you can make your own hose storage tube out of PVC pipe, strapped to bumper or under belly. You will find some threads on JOF where folks have done this along with pics

Ok checked my hose it's only about 5 foot long extended and has a fitting on only one side. I'll be buying a longer one for sure, do I need fittings on both ends? My camper has a hose storage tube compartment and one with 2 fittings wont fit. Unless I use a blue dump cart is there any reason I need 2 fittings? Aren't the sewer dumps at campsites just a hole without fittings? Thanks

5' will probably be long enough for most campgrounds with a "dump station". And yes, you only need a fitting on the trailer end of the hose. Where you may need a longer hose is at a "full service" campground, where there is a sewer inlet on your campsite. That inlet may be several feet from your drain, so you may want/need to purchase a longer hose as an "extension". If you use an extension, you'll need a "splice" fitting to connect the two hoses together. Most campgrounds with "full service" sites require a sewer adapter fitting at the other end, so the sewer outlet isn't left open while you're connected. I might suggest you also pick up a 45-degree or 90-degree clear connector. it's not essential, but it's very handy to have. It will allow you to monitor your sewage output. While that's not nearly as entertaining as your T.V., it does tell you when your tanks have emptied, if your t.p. is breaking down like it should, when your black tank rinse has sufficiently done its job, etc.

Hope that helps.

If you are going to purchase a new hose I'd suggest you look at the small kits. They'll generally have the hose and most of the commonly used fittings. Walmart has a few of them that aren't too expensive. A quick storage solution is a small plastic tote with a secure lid. Just make sure to mark the tote so nobody uses it for something else while the sewer hose is connected to the camper.

most cg require a 90 deg fitting at the sewer hole to cut down on spills
