In our search for a used 5th wheel I have noticed a number of fifth wheels do not have the four-inch square bumper to store the sewer hose in. On these fifth wheels where do you store the sewage hose?


Please give me enough troubles, uncertainty, problems, obstacles and STRESS so that I do not become arrogant, proud, and smug in my own abilities, and enough blessings and good times that I realize that someone else is in charge of my life.

There is usually a compartment for sewer hose storage. Also the design on a fifth wheel provides a large storage area in the lower front behind the pin box, usually called the "basement". Plenty of room for anything you want to store in there.

Go to a home center like Lowe's or Home Depot, buy a section of the plastic fence post that is about 5 inches square. Mount it under your 5th wheel and use the plastic end caps to cover each end. I put a hinge on the appropriate end used a plastic gutter cut to length that slides perfectly inside the fence post. This is better than a square bumper!!

My bumper was too small for the hose, so we did the same thing ^^^^ Works perfectly and easy to install.

I do the same as above. I made a handle out of a dowel rod that I screwed into the vinyl gutter. That way I can pull it out like a tray and I can retrieve one or two lengths of hose. Additional hose is stored in plastic container (used exclusively for sewer related items) in the "basement".

We simply bought 2 sewer hose storage units and mounted one on each side underneath the 5'er. Hubby drilled a couple of holes so water can drain if needed. Good Luck and Happy Camping !!

We store ours in a blue tote container with a lid and put it in a storage compartment. We also have a spare hose in the bumper that gets rusty and yuckey (sp). The tote keeps it much cleaner.

I guess I have no class, I just throw mine in a green garbage bag and put it in the storage compartment!

I have several slinkies, a couple with all the fittings and couplers along with the screw in deal for the CG hookup pipe.

The one in the bumper is only for dump stations where I gotta stick the hose down the pipe.

I like the plastic fence post idea, looks great! Good thinking. Another project for me, thanks.
