Where do you keep your sewer hose?

I've always used those cheapie single-ended sewer hoses, and kept them inside the rear bumper. I'm storing the trailer at a new place that has a sewer dump, and it's great, except the hole is further from the driving lane, and my cheapie hose is stretched near it's limit. Been thinking of a better hose, maybe with one of those elbows on it, but I am sure those wouldn't fit inside my bumper.

What do you smart folks do with your hose? Do you have a bucket stored somewhere for it? Does that bucket end up smelling like the stuff you are dumping?

Looking for ideas, because I'm too cheap to spend the thirty bucks or so just to test-fit it.

I made up a 5"*5" 8 foot square tube under the trailer near the sewer hookup. Just bolted it to the trailer frame web. Used two bungee cords and two end caps. Works great. Added a 4" vinyl eaves trough 8feet long enough inside. Use that to slide the sewer hose in and out and as a support

I keep two 10' hoses in my bumper. The 90 degree elbow you speak of disconnects from the hose and is stored elsewhere.

I store 2 10' sections of Rhino Flex in my rear bumper.

I keep all my dump supplies in a closed bin in my belly storage.

I do a thorough rinse of the hose, replace the caps and then roll it into the bin. the rinse hose, box of gloves and wrench go in the middle. Never have had an odor problem.

A plastic storage container works for me. Simple to install and allows quick access at the dump station. Keeps the mess contained and rinses out easily when necessary.

I have a Rhino flex, and it would store in the rear bumper of my TT (even with 90* elbow) but a pain, so I got a Valterra hose carrier and mounted it under the TT on some OEM mounting tabs at the end of the A frame. Much easier to deal with than the bumper storage concept.

I have 6 inch PVC pipe with screw on end caps. I have it fastened to the frame near the sewer outlet. I then made a drawer out of 4 inch vinyl gutter that my hoses and fittings sit in.

Grumpy,
Go to Lowe's and buy a 5"x5"x8' plastic fence post with 2 end caps. Also buy a 10' length of 4" round rain gutter. Lay the sewer hose and fittings within the gutter and slide it into the fence post.If you buy a new sewer hose, I recommend the Rhinoflex from Camco (those are some very tough hoses.)

When you deploy the sewer hose, you can leave it in the gutter for protection, rather than dragging it around on the ground. I U-bolt mounted mine on top of the rear bumper and put a screen door hook on each cap to make sure I didn't have one open up while in transit. Between the hardware and materials, I spent around $30. You could mount it under the trailer if you have the space and aren't worried about rocks kicking up and breaking the post.

Good luck with your mod. .......... Swampy
