For those folks considering a 4 inch ABS/PVC sewer pipe as holder, you will find that the inside diameter is too small to take the sewer hose connectors. I was able to make the connector fit in the pipe by sawing off the "finger" tabs that you use to grab when you are screwing on the connector to the sewer discharge on the Redwood, not an ideal solution!

I found that you can buy an 8 foot version of the tube that Camping World sells (CW doesn't seem to sell it), it's available in black. I mounted it under the trailer hitch with plumbers strapping, it works well. It has double ended opening so you can store two hoses and I access the smaller length hose I carry on one side, the longer length one on the the other side.

As indicated, these sewer holders open up in transit as they get older as the plastic loosens up and the sewer connectors push against the cap due to movement, a locking solution is to drill a small diameter hole down at a 45 degree angle through the cap and through the hose holder proper and use a cotter pin (I used a pin that holds wheel bearing nuts from moving) to lock the cap. The top of the cotter pin is larger in diameter, it won't fall out if you have sized the drill hole properly.

I will probably remount our sewer boom from our previous 5er that will holds about 10 ft of hose AND mount a fence post for the spare hose , but put it close to the rv wheels for clearance.
Only thing I would like to do is keep the elbow on the stored hose. But the boom will have to be modified to do that.

I purchased the 94" black tube from Amazon just like the factory installed one.
Valterra (A040155XBK) Black 94" EZ Hose Carrier.

I cut it down to the maximum length and replaced the factory one. I had to grind out the plastic on the end cap and re-glue it on with some ABS cement. I can now store 2 15' lenghts or more of sewer hose in the tube.

I saw this on another forum and I think this is what I am going to do.

The second upgrade I did was take my sewer line from a 5 gal bucket inside my storage, where it can make some interesting smells, and move it under the coach. To do this I bought a 4 3/4 x 4 3/4" PVC fence post, 8ft long, plus 2 end caps. I also bought 5ft of 1.5 x 1/8" steel, and I bought an 8ft piece of aluminum rain gutter.

I cannot take credit for this idea, since I saw it on Pinterest.

I cut the post to 72" (I think, not positive now) and bent the steel into a square 5" on a side, and welded it so it would stay a square. The 5" size made it so it slid perfectly over the PVC fence post, snug enough it had to be tapped in place with a small hammer.
I then welded a tab on one side of each square, and that was to be my mounting tab to attach it to the trailer.

Here are some pics of it mounted.

First is the end cap where I will pull the hose from.

Next is under the coach showing the square bracket on the front of the tube, near the sewer drain.

Next is the rear of the same tube.
