I forget the brand, but I bought a 10' hose on Amazon last year when we had a 17z and it fit in the compartment. It has a removable elbow to go into the ground and i stored that in a ziplock bag. But that compartment would not hold anything longer than 10', its short. I also used a straight clear coupler to make sure the tank was draining. It helps. Good luck.

I got the 15' version and it works great.

It curls up perfectly and fits right on top of the spare tire behind our propane tanks. I use a tie down strap to keep it from moving...and most importantly, it gets aired out.

That's an interesting idea. I'll look into that. The hose you linked to is more or less that I have. Mine is 20 inches long, but splits into two 10 inch hoses. So far I've only used half of the hose because the dump station at the park was pretty convenient.

The one I got has an elbow, but that elbow is opaque. I don't know any different (first time doing this) but it worked well enough for me at the camp dumping station.
If a 4" u-shaped gutter will fit in the factory compartment, use that as a tray. If it's not open to one side then put a cut 2x4 piece of wood as a stopper at the end. If it opens on both ends, put the block in the center, and fire tongs and poker on the other side. Or put a block in the center and at the end to break up the tray for the hot dog forks and tongs/poker.

If the tray won't fit, cut it down a little until it does.

Good luck!
