That is pretty much exactly what I would like to do. But you know, putting a hatch in and not making it look ghetto...

Default Is Sean coming to Q?

After a near disastrous telescoping ladder incident (the ladder feet slid away from the coach with me on it and part way up), I have need for Seans talents. Thousands of times up and down that ladder and I never fell... till this past week. I jumped off and am fine but there’s some pretty good gouges in the housing beside the rearview camera. Top rung of the ladder shaved some paint off like a knife. Could likely do it, but need someone with better than my amateur painter skill set. Sure would be nice if Sean could make a trip out to Q this year!

Not a bad idea Lucas - https://www.wanderlodgeownersgroup.c...ad.php?t=30746

I especially like that the sewer hose drains to the ground through the cage eliminating the stinky part of the slinky. Also nice is that it, as well as all the other dump paraphernalia is stowed in its own plastic bin completely separate from the fresh water stuff.

To carry my sewer hoses, I got a couple of pvc pipes with screw on end caps. Drilled some holes in the end caps for ventilation.
Got some plumbers tape and mounted them under the bird just in front of the drive axles.
Been there for 15 years now and no problems.

You already have a narrow hatch,right?
We just change the compartment behind the hatch.

Sadly no. The 94 WB only has the fuel doors on that panel even thought there is nothing but 2 air lines in the area below. I might look at the storage pipe under the coach.

Default Sewer hose storage

Bruce, if you could find a door, maybe Randy has one, the hole is just cut into the side of the coach. The sidewall material is heavy enough that it is not even reinforced. Looking at our coach that is what Blue Bird did.

Van, sorry at this time I don’t have any plans to go that far this year. I might go west in 2021.
