Jayco X17z (Sewer Hose location)

Hello everyone,

Where do you put the sewer hose on the Jayco x17z. I got a new sewer hose however noticed it wont fit in the sewer hose spot on the trailer. The connections are permanently secured to the hose and they dont fit in the hole. Since Im new to new camping with a trailer I wondering what does everyone do with the sewer hose once you empty the tanks. Seems like a dirt hose to keep inside your trailer

Thanks
Mark

I had the same problem. I attached a vinyl fence post to the bumper. I used long wire ties (zip strips) to hold the tube to the bumper. I screwed a fence post cap on the curb side of the trailer to close that end off. For the end I use to remove the hose I drilled a hole threw the top and bottom of the mounted post. Then threaded a long bolt through the top hole and the bottom hole. I use a wing nut to keep the bolt in place.

We keep ours in a small plastic tote that is maybe 10 gallons. We store it in the shower while traveling (the tote).

Here's the one on my 17Z. It's called EZ Hose Carrier by Valterra. It's mounted to the rear frame behind the bumper with a few lag bolts. Has an access door on each end with ventilation holes. Works well and I like that it's somewhat hidden.

The camper is at my campsite, so I won't be able to take a picture until the weekend. I know I have pictures of the mod, but I haven't been able to find them.

When I cut the post down I put the leftover piece on the tongue of the trailer, behind the propane tank. I put lids on each end and I keep outside stuff in the post.

Here are some pic I took yesterday. I put the leftover post on the tongue of the trailer. I used 2 post caps and attached them with a hasp on both sides of the post.
