Here's a photo of my "factory installed sewer hose holder" on my Montana HC 375FL



Actually, that thing is practically useless. It's too short, and the connections are too big. I use it store hot dog sticks, fire pit tongs, and a few other items make of metal that are long and could punch holes in the side of a wall. For this purpose, it works great! As a sewer hose carrier, it just doesn't work well.

This is how I carry all my sewer hoses and connections. I just carry this in the back of the pick-up truck, along with my blue tote. This simplified everything for me, and keeps everything in one place. I carry enough hose to reach about 75 feet. I have 2 outlets on my current Montana and they are a distance apart. So, if I've got full hook-ups, I need to connect both outlets with a Y. So I carry a LOT of hose. We travel a lot, and we never know what the campsite logistics will be like.





On my my previous travel trailer, I did install a 10 foot tube under the trailer. This worked great! As long as I kept all the hoses connected when I shoved them in.







When we traded the trailer for new one, I took my home 10 foot sewer hose holder off and wanted to figure a way to put it on the new trailer. There was never a good way to do it. Then we traded that one, and got the Montana. And there is really no good way to install the 10 foot pipe on it either. So, it hangs in my utility shed at home, and maybe someday I'll find a use for that pipe!

For anyone looking for this answer in the future, the above turns out to be the correct answer for my 2021 351BH also. It includes a short tube, mounted as shown in the picture, that depending on the compressability of your hose might able to take 10-15ft, but fittings make it an issue. I'll be replacing mine with something longer most likely. Thanks to everyone for the help and suggestions! This is a great community.

I bought a 6" dia PVC pipe and 2 end caps which just slide on. There are 2 pieces of diamond plate that bolt onto the bumper at each end with 4 bolts. The bottom piece of plate is longer and extends back under the PVC. The PVC is held to this with a 1" piece of flat iron that bolts to the bottom plate on both front and back.

After putting the end caps on, I drilled a 3/16" hole thru the end cap and the PVC pipe on top at 12 o'clock and on the bottom at 6 o'clock. A long piece of #9 wire extends thru both holes to the bottom with a 90 degree bend at the top. Just remove the wire and pull the cap off one end. 16 foot sewer hose along with it's end connections and an elbow all fit. The pics are a little dark. Just blow them up and you should be able to see the bolted connections.

We have a different situation in that we have the Lippert Wastemaster with the head permanently attached. I added onto the factory tube with pvc and use a bungee to keep it attached.

I guess having an older rig (2013) has it's advantages. Our 3582 came with a storage box on the side of the unit just in front of the drivers side tires of the unit. It is big enough to put two 15 foot sections of slinky, three different caps to connect to the sewer outlet on the rig and one cap that screws or sits on the sewer intake of the campground or dump station and there is still some room to put some other stuff if needed. Have not figured out why Montana Division ever eliminated that handy box and door. It is great!

All the same issues, pipe too small, no place to attach one big enough to fit a hose with twist ends on it, then there are all the attachments. Bought a gasket sealed storage box form Lowes that fits in the bed between tool boxes and DEF. It's easy to get to, holds everything sewer related and leaves more storage available when we travel. I put it in the storage compartment when we store the trailer, and if I really need to I can just take a hose to it.
I am not very imaginative so most of my ideas come from this forum.
