Storage of sewer pipes and fittings

Since I bought some extra flexible pipe and connections for connecting to a campsite's sewer system, I need a place to store it. I've seen a solution on this forum and am duplicating it. I'll post photos.
My question is whether I should care about the direction I aim the fence slat holes that come prefabricated in the post I am using. I'm planning on downward and rearward for aeration while stored. Should it be upward and rearward?

Looks good to me Dave. You've got it sitting in the best position for not picking up water spray while towing plus it will drain too.

I second that, it looks good to me too. With the slots down and back, they may not collect as much dust and grit. And the gutter drawer does cover the bottom holes. Have you noticed that in many areas the floor OSB board does not lie tight against the frame and that you can actually thread stainless steel strips through to hang the tube?

I placed one of those fence sleeves in exactly the same location and took the shore power cord out through it. It gets folded and shoved in to store it. The sleeve I used is plain, without holes. The sewer hose is in a similar arrangement up front.

I also threaded the hangers through the frame members - was an easy attachment and it worked well.

The install looks great. I might consider drilling some hole in the bottom on the gutter drawer to allow water to drain out of it - particularly if you plan on washing it out from time to time.

:sells I think they come in 7' and 10' fold up totally square, will not fit into a 4" round pipe but sure as heck fit into the new Plastic square fencing like the one under the trailer. If not 4" then maybe 5" neat ladders if one needs to look at roofing problems.
Just a thought as your system would work for them to.

Home Depot or Lowes. It is sold as plastic fence post so look in the deck and fence area of the store.

Yes they make plastic fencing now for the USA Market.

:I have to assume cows and horses think it is real wood product and stay away from it? But would sure be good for putting items in it like under the trailer, or on the rear bumper etc. Hard to find 5" round pipe but one does not need worry any longer now with 5" Square.

: I believe there is a lowes in Queensborough, and I think a new one just went in around Abbottsford area. But any farm supply like Buckerfields should no how to get it.

In Canada, Home Depot does not carry it. I had to import mine into Canada from a Home Depot across the line.
