M Scott, If you google: RV sewer hose storage you will discover dozens of do it yourself sewer hose installations and projects including material lists. This will be my next project using some of the methods I discovered when I googled the topic. The 5"X5" white PVC hollow fence post looked like the best way to go as it has enough room to fit the hose and the connectors. The round PVC pipe comes in 4" and cannot fit the connectors just the hose.
Carol H has the best system.

Ooh! Sounds like removing the PVC pipe and installing the storage underneath the trailer is a great way to go! We've just been putting our hose/attachments in a plastic covered container and carrying it in our minivan. Really like the idea of eliminating that "nasty thing" in the car.!

Some folks use metal strapping or very large hose clamps but I just used 6 large heavy zip ties. Slipped them between the closest metal frame cross member and the trailers floor. Its all pretty light and its been on for a number of years now - 1000's of miles and its not moved an inch. It holds 15' of Rhino flex hose and attachments with room for gloves and a box of handy wipes.

Don't worry about it. sokhapkin asked why remove the tube, but BillE had already answered why he wished to remove it.

No worries Marky.

I already got the answer on another forum. He posted it and answered the question. The type of epoxy he used and he got the paint from Scamp, that's why it was a perfect match. He then sanded it with wet 2000 grit sandpaper. He did a great job!
There's no need to be rude or condescending. I also asked a question on another thread and the senior members were very rude and discourteous, as you can tell by the previous post. This gives FGRV owners and the site a bad name. I was reading on the Escape forums as well as others about the rudeness and immaturity on this forum.
Marky


Happy Camping!
Marky

Oh my stars. Sometimes these replies to forums move REALLY FAST. Marky asked a question and totally missed the answer in post #4. No ones fault, really. It wasn't about being rude....

You missed the whole thread Donna. I read the 4th post when he answered my question. The other posts have been deleted.
On The other thread I asked a question and was told not to get my knickers (woman's undergarment) in a bunch by a senior member.
There's a lot of new people asking questions who have never used a forum or towed an RV. It's a chance for us to show them how great fiberglass RVs are and even convince them to get one and support the manufactures. There are others who own other types of RVs that might be interested in fiberglass. We won't win them over or get their respect if we treat them like this.
I had a KZ before and was fortunate enough to have camped during a Casita rally. The Casita owners were amazing! They invited us to all their activities even tho we had a KZ. This is why I bought a Casita. Not once did they say one bad thing about my KZ. I'd probably still have my 2013 KZ if I had asked questions on this site about fiberglass and was told my "sticky" is a piece of junk.
FGRV can be one of the greatest on the net for fiberglass RVs.

Where did you find that. I don't know how many of those rubber end caps I have left on the side of the highway when they were sucked off by the wind! Or are those literally the fence post caps that go on 4x4 lumber?

Tim, The cap is PVC as well. I picked up the post and cap at a Home Depot in Washington State in their garden area. Could not find any here in BC at Home Depot. But someone told me that if you ask they can order them in. You may have the same issue in Alberta.

I did have to do a bit of fiddling to get the cap to work well with the hinge and clasp - used instructions from the Casita forum as a guide with some modifications. The hardware I used is stainless from a local marine shop. I spray painted it black with plastic outdoor furniture paint. Sand the post lightly before painting.

Yes I could see the hinge not working easily since it would have to come out first then swing open. Interesting idea though that's gotta be better than losing the rubber ones. Do the screws protrude into the inside much? Thinking they might bind on the hose as it comes out.
