On truck campers and class C R V's you have the bumper to store the hose in there is not a bumper on most class A motorhomes they are built into the body. So where do you store the sewer hose I was thinking about a 6 foot piece of P V C and putting screwable caps on each end 6 foot would allow for at least 3 sections of hose and that could be attached with several methods in one of the bays pipe strapping then screwed down a small screw inside on each end since there is not much weight involved but how do you store your hose?

Your plan would work. Some folks attach the PVC under the RV with the opening right at the drain access. Some Class A's have room inside the drain bin. Some store in a plastic container along with all the connections you'll be accumulating.

On my rig, the sewer connection is in a compartment. The compartment is plastic with drain and floor access for hose to be routed while in use.
If your rig does not have a "wet" compartment, could use a plastic tote or bucket.
Yes a peice of plastic pipe, plastic fence post(larger) would work. Make sure size is large enough for which ever style of connector you have.
You could attach across back to frame in front of bumper.
It would be good to know make and model of rig

we keep a 8'-section in a tub in one of the storage bays. we use that section alone most of the time. but experience has taught me to be ready so we carry 4-10' sections of hose. we store them in two 7'-lengths of 6"-PVC pipe crosswise under the chassis. each tube stores two lengths and has a screw cap. on our previous MH i attached a 15' piece of PVC for the extra hose and hung it under the exterior storage cabinets that extended and retracted with the slide.

you may use the plastic container with a locking lid. just to keep the lid on while you are driving and not cross contaminating other things in the storage area

5 inch plastic fence post works well under frame behind rear wheels. Makes enough room for connections plus plastic rain gutter it sets in. Can use the rain gutter under the hose to make a run to the sewer. Held to the frame rails with hose clamps.

On my coach the propane tank is in a semi open bay behind an exterior access door. I purchased a sewer hose tube with screw on lid from Camping World and mounted it inside the propane tank storage area. Works great since that door is right next to the wet bay on my coach.

thanks for the replys I Have a 02 Monaco it has a wet bay but not a big enough space to store the sewer hose as far as underneath the motorhome the ground clearance is not that great and I would be apprehensive to have anything hanging underneath the idea of placing a holder of some sorts where the propane tank is located, I am going to check that for clearance. the previous owner kept it in a plastic tote that does not seem to be the best way to stow it. I am the second owner and wanted to make several short trips to iron out any bugs, the DW wants to strike out for Oregon right away, so I have to get all this sorted out quickly if she prevails, I am sure I will have plenty more things to sort out either way, luckily a fiend owns a trucking company and they have their own shop and they are going to help me replace the steering tires a t a good price, the other four are 3 years old. I dread that which could come up on a trip that long so far, new batteries caulking all over, the tires a battery isolator and I am sure the list will grow either before we leave in March or I hope not on the road.

My previous 36 DP coach had a built in 4" PVC pipe and on our new Class B I wanted the same. I found a place for could put 6 feet of 4" PVC hanging under the bed back over a wheel well. Works perfectly but a warning that while the stock sewer PVC fittings work, I needed to use a Dremmel to route slots into the very end to allow the ears of the hose connector to slide in deep enough so I could screw on the end cap.
