Have heard rumors that we had one, but my cursory look didn't show it...

until I was bent down under the coach this weekend !!!

Was looking for where my shower leak was coming out and found the outflow of the leak....

but also found that sewer hose holder I've heard about....

ya think maybe they could try a bit more to place it in a harder to get to place !?!

(and hope that's brown sealant around the sewer hoses and not anything else )

Yeah, I didn't know anything about the storage tube until I happened to see it one day while looking for my fresh water overflow tube. Too bad about shower leak. Any luck figuring out what the issue is?

It looks ;like your sewer connection is well under like mine is. When Redwood discontinued the sewer boom they left the hook up about 12 inches under the fifth wheel. Very difficult for a baby boomer with bad knees to hook up! I bought the parts to extend the hookup but just haven't had the incentive to do it. Good luck on the shower leak fix. That looks like quite a leak!!

Ah, it doesn't matter John, cause those Rinoflex coupling won't fit in there anyways. Make a nice rod holder!

So where have you been storing your hose?

ya - sucks on the shower leak. Any idea from where?

Betcha anything that your shower leak is just like mine was... The elbow pipe that comes off the shower drain was a 6" piece when in fact it should have been a 10" piece... Remove the basement wall and run the water and you'll quickly identify the problem.

I did what it looks like Johnboy did, I installed the clear plastic extension piece and I left it there, it brings the connector out to the point that it's easier to connect the hose and it also shows me what's coming out, in case I need to do a second flush. I put an 8 ft. hose holder under the trailer hitch frame, I can carry two long hoses that way.

Having come from a 5er that I LOVED the sewer boom, I had to find something quick to store the hose...
got an orange tub with a snap on lid that seals and keep it in the basement...

Hate that it takes up so much space, but I'm not letting THAT stuff loose in the basement

re that leak ?
I assumed it was shower, because it also runs out under the shower pan into the hallway.... no fix yet and has been back to the dealer 3 times for it...

avoiding thinking about what it's doing to the substructure !

They discontinued the sewer boom because it became a "complaint celeb" for a while back in '13 as many of us remember. Redwood gave the vocal critics what they demanded.

Newer owners have been whining ever since. Those of us that have them now are counting our blessings.
