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.

Magnetic Sewer Hose Carrier Attached To Truck

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.
