Magnetic Sewer Hose Carrier
1999 Ford F250
2019 Adventurer 80RB
We purchased a 2019 Adventurer 80RB last year. The factory sewer hose storage will not accommodate 10-foot sewer hose or a 90-degree elbow.
My solution was an external sewer hose carrier that can be magnetically attached to the bed of the truck and easily removed when it’s not needed.
I took a Valterra A04-5094BK EZ Hose Adjustable Hose Carrier ($45 on Amazon) and added a Lightronic Magnetic Mounting Bracket ($43 on Amazon).
I added a piece of mild steel to the brackets to make them a bit heftier. The tube carrier extends 50 to 90-inches to the needed length. As a bonus, it also twists to conform to the truck’s body.
On our test run I added a safety strap just in case the carrier wasn’t fully secured. North of Phoenix, Arizona I-17 has a 75 mile per hour speed limit and the winds were very strong on the weekend we tested the mod. The test was a success, so I will dispense with the safety strap in the future.
It took me two hours to complete this modification and cost me $90. In my opinion, the skill level of this modification is easy.
