One of the nastiest chores an RV owner must do is empty the sewage tanks. And in doing that, a variety of supplies and of course, a place to store them is an order. But, where do you store the stinky slinky. Well, we found a great storage carrier for the sewer hose that is an easy-to-install RV modification!
When we owned our fifth wheels, sewer hose storage was no big deal. Both of our previous RVs (before our Winnebago View) had incredible storage space. We could just toss all the sewage hose and connections into a bin and store it in the basement. However, storage space became a premium when we traded in for our Winnebago View. At only 25′, there’s very little exterior compartmental storage. So, we had to come up with a way to store our long and bulky stinky sewer hose.

Alas, Dan found the perfect storage solution ! He ordered the Valterra RV sewer hose storage tube model number A04-5094BK.

This sewer hose storage tube was super easy to install. Dan simply dry-fit it where the underside of our little motorhome had room. He made sure the location was not in the way of moving parts or cause damage.
After dry-fitting it to the location, he simply drilled holes into the frame, mounted the brackets, mounted the storage tube to the brackets and voila!
For added security of not having the hose carrier door opening, we attached a simple carabiner.
Our Product Review
This is definitely a game changer for those with smaller storage capabilities in the basements or cargo spaces in their RV. And, let’s not forget the sanitary factor. We aren’t keen on having our sewage hose stored with other equipment in the basement compartment.
Now, between uses, it’s stores discreetly in its own storage compartment.
So, there you go! Our external RV storage tip!
