I started by finding wasted space to store the sewer hoses and connectors, I used two heater duct about 5 feet long with end caps. One is 6 inch dia and the other is 5 inch. 5 inch will work just fine. Click pictures to make larger.

This show the hose going in the 5 inch duct with connectors. These ducts will hold 20 feet of hose with connectors each.

I brought two ten foot plastic gutter the cheap 4 inch wide and cut off 25 inches off them to fit the length of the cargo bay. It is wasted space where I put them between the wall and cargo tray slide.

This is the gutters on the ground ready to be put together to make a tray for the drain hoses.

This is the two gutters snapped together to make a sliding tray for the sewer hose

This is the sewer hoses laid in the gutter tray. Make the gutter tray slightly longer than needed for the sewer hose.

I used 10 inch bungee cord to keep the snapped part of the gutter tray together

This is the final setup to have the hose run off as best as you can get without dips to trap sewer water. I have two problems this solved, the coach is low in the rear and the campground drain would only allow the tip of the elbow to be inserted.

This project to me is better and cost less than what is out there. The two gutters and bungee cords cost about $15. The duct work with caps was less than $25. This makes managing the sewer hose system so much better and less messy.

I got the same system now. The only problem is how to keep it off the ground and proper angle for max. drainage!

Not big on carting rocks or wood around, due to weight! So what else can one use, that's light and stable?

The only thing that comes to mind, is plastic leveling blocks (stackable).

First off, a slinky won't work with gutters!

Second, not all campsites are designed the same!

Third, there is a reason I carry (4) 10' lengths off hose!
