One of our least favorite chores as RV owners is emptying our gray and black tank. This means we need to have the proper storage of our motorhome’s sewer hose. Alas, we found an easy-to-install RV sewer hose storage carrier that to store our sewer hose aka the stinky slinky!
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 in a separate storage bin and store it in our fifth wheel basement.
However, storage space became a premium when we traded in for our Winnebago View. At only 25′, there’s very little exterior basement storage. So, we had to come up with a way to store our RV sewer hose.

Installation of Our Valterra EZ Sewer Storage Tube
This sewer hose storage tube was super easy to install. Dan simply dry-fit it under our Class C Winnebago View motorhome. He made sure the location was not in the way of moving parts or to cause damage to the frame, tires, or any components.
After dry-fitting to the chosen location, he simply drilled holes into the frame. He then mounted the brackets to the frame. After which, he 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
Our sewer hose storage tube is definitely a game changer as it keeps our stinky slinky tucked away out of sight and avoiding cross contamination. We aren’t keen on having our sewage hose stored with other equipment in the basement compartment.
And for those with smaller storage space in the motorhome, fifth wheel or travel trailer basements, this is a great option to store those odd lengthy items.
Now, between uses, our RV sewer hose storage tube stores our stinky slinky discreetly in its own storage compartment. And no one is the wiser!
