Greyhawk dump tube storage use

I hate wasted space on the RV but I can't figure out what to use the small compartment designed for the dump tube storage. i keep my tube and fittings in a plastic bin in one of the under coach compartments as it is the heavy duty type and wont fit there. I am just curious what others use this storage for if not for the dump tube.

Yes, on my Greyhawk 31SS , the compartment is way too small for my hose. It is not very deep either for long items, can't even store my swim noodle in there. Probably a good place to hide variables. Would a thief look into a compartment labeled Sewer Hose?

This idea always worked for me. I used to store our Honda generator in a basement in a box labeled "Sewer Hose and Fittings".
There's lots of advice and information in forums... sometimes it is correct. For example, all of my posts are made by a political appointee who got the job as a reward for contributions to my diesel bill.

I use it to store water hoses.

And BTW thieves will look everywhere - don't count on that.

We stay at COE campgrounds which usually do not have sewer hookups at the sites. We store a short sewer line with a connector attached in the "sewer hose" compartment right near the dump valve. This is a convenient location to just drive up to a dump site, pull out the hose and dump the tanks. Rinse the hose and pop it back in the tube.

We also carry a 20' hose in the rear storage compartment (coiled up in a sealed container) when we stay at a site with sewer hook-ups.

My standard size cheapy sewer hose is in this compartment - handy for when we hit the dump station. Heavy duty hose is in 5 gallon bucket in the "garage".

I store a coil hose in there. Fits perfectly and is easy to reach for quick cleanup at the dump station.
