Looking for the Sewer hose holder mod- ?Quetse?

Before the reorginization of the site, someone (was it you, Quetse?) had posted pics of a box or something that they added to the sewer hose holder to accomodate the sewer hose connectors. I can't seem to find it now. If it was you, could you re-post it for me? I would appreciate it. We are trying to decide between that and Kanyonkitty's fence post holder.
THANKS!!!!!

Hi Kathryn,

It was Kitty that posted her modification, she used a square plastic fence post mounted on top of the bumper. I remember seeing pictures of it also but couldn’t find them.

Here’s the link to Kitty’s original post:
http://www.sunlineclub.com/forums/ph...ght=sewer+hose
It’s within the modification thread titled "Rustproof Sewer Hose Holder" if the link doesn't work.

What I did was mounted 2 sewer hose holders I bought from Camping World
http://www.campingworld.com/browse/p...er/prodID=1483
46" for our 10' hose and the 64" for our 20' hose.
I mounted them under the trailer just behind the sewer drain so they open the same side as the drain.

I can give you more information on how I mounted them if your interested (or show you in Aug ).

Hutch

No it wasn't us. "nasa42a" had talked about doing a QUE mod for the sewer hose. I think he wanted something that would accomodate the fitting that goes on the end of the hose. I don't remember seeing a post on if he ended up doing it.

Kathryn,

Yes, the E-Z Hose Carriers from Camping World are made out of plastic. The hose + connector fits into them, but it's tight. They can be open from either end and have air ventaliztion holes at each end.

I keep the hose w/ connector, hose support and donut in them.

Folks....

Sorry....Haven't had a chance to fix the sewer-hose holder. The vinyl 4x4" post covers turned out to be 1/16" too tight! I just hate to give Camping World the big profit....I'd rather spend the money on the camping!

Hey Frank,

Don't give Camping World your money until you check Lowes or Home Depot again. This time the plumbing dept. You "should" be able to get some white pvc or pcvc(?) pipe to make the same thing that CW is selling.
I did this on one of my previous Sunlines.

Here is another option for the industrial builder types out there. Yes it's my work stress reliever and hobby.

It has 1/2" drain holes along the bottom of the pipe and 1/4" drain holes in the pipe Tees.



Close up of how fitting lugs just fit in there and keep hose end for falling in any further. 4" screw end cap holds hose in from falling out. I have one placed in from both ends. Can store 20 feet in there.


Here you can see the pressure treated wood bungs attached to the bumpers where the 4" PVC pipe tees screw into.
Oh and paint the inside of the bumper. It is not painted and will rust fast. Staple or screw a rag on the end of a stick, pour in the Rustoleum and spread. Keep turning bumpers until all sides are good and coated.


Hope this helps

I'm just curious, does anyone keep their sewer hoses in the bumper? I've always done that and not had a problem, but I do see quite a few other holders out there. I realize the Que doesn't have a metal bumper, but all the other Sunline's do.

Storing the wet hose in the carbon steel bumper is all about rust. It will take a few years to rust through if left unprotected and over watered/over chemical treated.

Corrosion is tricky thing. Depending on your water source some may not have so much an issue, while others, the water is very aggressive. Water Ph has a lot to do with corrosion as well as higher chlorine to name a few. And then there is soft water etc. All water is not created equal. And then each of us use different tank chemicals that further adds to the mix. Some of these combinations can create a perfect corrosion cocktail. So we will get a mixed set of answers of never had an issue to having a real problem.

We never think about these things unless you deal with machinery corrosion like some of us.... I deal with rotting stainless steel parts daily sometimes. Yes, stainless steel does rot given the right conditions as well as turns brittle and cracks.

And then there is how much each person drains the hose before putting it in there. Some I see at the dump station the water is drizzling out still as they drive away.

When I took my 1 year old bumper off and just taped it on the ground on end, OMG the pile of rust that came out was unreal. And I never stored a hose in there at all.

Mine was never painted inside the bumper, so I did.

You’re not going to see a major problem is a year or 2. But given the right conditions, 3 to 6 years could deliver holes in the middle area on the bottom.

Just ask your self, if you left a piece of soft low carbon steel out in the rain unprotected, how long would it last? The 2004's Sunline steel bumpers are only 1/8" thick and act like 1018 steel by the way I could easily dent and bend it. I know, you never thought of it.

If you are going to store the hose inside the bumper and it is bare steel, a paint job every few years on the inside will prolong the life greatly. That followed by draining the hose well and rinsing the tank chemicals out well too are all steps to helping keep a happy bumper.

Hope this helps

John

John,

Happy bumpers are a good thing ! I've always dealt with the rust inside (sometimes huge flakes come out), but I only painted about 12 inches in on the inside, and that was when I painted the frame, bumper, and tounge. I think the bumpers on the '86, '94, and '97 Sunline's are also 1/8" thick. I had a problem on one of them (can't remember which one, not '97) where the spare tire carrier was loose, but had been tightened very tight at one time. It dented the bumper in that spot and the hose end (with a fitting on it) wouldn't go past it. It wasn't easy to straighten, but I got it to move enough so the hose would fit. It sure doesn't seem like that bumper would be much good in an accident.

Jon

Kitty....

I appreciated the encouragement. Finished replacing the Que's undersized sewer storage underneath....today! A neighbor gave me 37" of schedule 40 pvc well casing (5" inside diameter!). Heavy stuff, though...a full 1/4" thick.

Anyway, I fabricated an end cap for the forward end, an access door for the back.... and sprayed it black so it wouldn't be too obvious how many scrap parts and pieces I employed in making it.

Used a lot of galvanized strapping and many screws to make sure it was securely mounted (I'll bet the Que picked up 15 pounds)!

I didn't know you did either! I've looked through all my pics and can't find any up close pics of something that resembles one. It looks like there might be something below the frame between the WH and front storage compartment, but I don't have anything that I can zoom in on to tell for sure.

Had to ask Steve about this one, since sewer is his job!!! The stock sewer hose holder is on the non-door side of the QUE (driver's side), and runs from the front to middle of the trailer parallelling the SIDE of the QUE. The access door is about mid QUE.

Pam,

Could you ask Steve if this is what he's talking about?



This was what I was referring to in my last post, but I don't have a good pic of it to tell exactly what's under there.

Steve says yes that's the plastic flange where the little door to the storage is. You open the door and the hose pulls out toward the back of the camper. He must have meant the access door is midway between the tire and the front. (guess I misunderstood that part in the previous post...sorry)

Wow, that little thing can hold a sewer hose! I don't think there's a prayer of getting even one end fitting in there.
