Now that I am packing things in our motorhome I have an opportunity to take a couple of pictures to show how I store my 3" sewer hoses.  The box is an inexpensive plastic tool box from Home Depot 19"X10"X10".  I'm able to carry three hose of various length and quality (lower quality = greater length)  plus various paraphernalia.  The plastic tool box catches any excess water and fits perfectly in the slide out storage bin.  When I get home I just add bleach and water, let everything soak for a couple of hours, rinse, dry and repack for the next trip.

Need to login to see pictures.

 Cheer  Nice and simple!

Years ago I bought this 5 foot storage tube for our Rhino hose as a backup in case of Sani-Con failed us while on a trip.  But I never got around to mounting it.  It continues to sit in our basement because the Sani-Con continues to serve us well in our travels.  I am sure one day I will regret that I didn't yet mount the tube.

The storage tube is called a Super Tube.

They make them to any length without a cost penalty.

Why are you not using the grinder/hose assembly that comes standard with the PC?  I find it a joy to use compared to hooking up the 3" hoses.  I painted the cap bright "John Deere" yellow as a reminder to move it after forgetting and blowing sewerage over my shop floor.  I think once was enough, but I will never miss the yellow cap ever again now.

Dick and Trish

I use both the Sani-Con and the 3" hose based upon length of stay.

If I am going to stay at a campsite for more than a couple of days I use the 3" hose connection with the grey tank open and the black tank closed. Since we usually pull out early in the morning, the night before I leave I dump both tanks, pack the hose up and put everything away and then use the Sani-con to do a good cleaning. If needed I will use the Sani-con right before we leave if anything needs to be dumped.

If we are only parked overnight I leave all my tanks closed and use the Sani-con in the morning if required.

When Linda tells me to add water, based on gauge &/or usage, that's when she also prompts me to dump 'The Other Stuff'.
We grinder up to get er dun.....macerate that is.

The question that I have is, where do you store the stinky thing?  I like the tube idea.  Where do yo store the tool box?

I store the tool box (sewer hoses) in the rear slide out storage bin.  Fits perfect, makes no mess and is isolated from the fresh water hoses and connectors.

So far there are only two things that I occasionally forget and one of them is the macerator hose cap.  I love Dick and Trish's idea of coloring the cap in a bright color.  Gonna hafta do that this weekend!

So far we've never used the 3" connection (and all the hoses and connectors, which reside in the slideout storage, still in their original packaging). I am probably going to do the same as Barry, with a toolbox setup.  If I ever start really hurting for space, I might install a tube under the rig to hold the 3" hoses.

I recently removed the spare tire cover from the rear of our PC and noticed that there is a fairly larges space available inside the wheel.  A length of 3" sewer hose would fit nicely there to use in an emergency.

Ok, you get a big  ThumbsUp

If not a sewer hose, then maybe enough space for a few dozen Keurig coffee K-Cups!

Thanks, all good ideas.  The spare tire idea is something to look ino for storage.  I thought about leaving the spare tire at home and using the storage for "whatever" but, not a good idea????

We do store an emergency back-up 15ft. sewer hose in the spare tire space. Had to use it once and just rinsed good, put in a trash bag and stuck it back in there.

Thanks.  I checked out the space and was able to wrap a 10' (or so) around the outside of the spare tire.  Worked fine.

I will check out the spare tire area. Thanks for the tip.  I am one of those that has had a macerator on my previous unit (Roadtrek 210P) for almost eight years.  If you have trouble with the macerator pump or hose and you are camped, you will appreciate the "emergency" big hose.  My Roadtrek did not have a backup system (ours was a 2007, later years one was added), so I made one myself.   Macerator hoses crack and bust and boy that can be messy!!  I can testify to that fact, believe me.

By the way, you can buy a fifteen foot water pond hose at HD or Lowes and it is perfect for a macerator hose.  I replaced my original hose with one of them and used it for five more years.  They cost less than twenty bucks and if you have problems on the road, offer a quick and easy solution to replace the hose.  I carry a couple of 1" PVC flexible pipe connections with me, which allow me to cut and splice the macerator hose in case of a problem on a trip.
