Adding sewer hose storage area to the travel trailer
« on: October 24, 2014, 12:12:40 AM »
My trailer came with a small compartment up front for storing the sewer hose. The problem is the sewer hose always holds smelly water and leaks the water onto everything around it. I also had other plans for the storage area.

At the rear of the trailer there are two V shaped skid bars that I could slide a PVC pipe through to hold the sewer pipe.

I glued a solid cap on one end and a screw on cap on the other end to slide the sewer hose into the PVC. Drilled some small holes up through the bottom of the PVC pipe so the water could drip out.

A ten foot section of sewer hose with the end couplers fits nicely inside the PVC pipe. So far after about 5 years it does not have any holes in it from rubbing against the inside of a rusty bumper. The storage area the factory used for the sewer hose is now holding the electric cord and extra hose for my Sani Con sewer pump.

That's a good idea Bob!

And that gives me an idea

Camper/trailer mod area...hmmm

A lot of us have them

and we use them on a regular basis, and we modify them for sure, so maybe we should post up all that as well.

If it develops, then it gets it's own section

I was actually searching high and low for a camper page when i first joined up... add one! I know you've got one, now we know Bob does, and that's probably one of the areas I could contribute the most. My wife and I spend a lot of time in our trailer.
