I have the 15' hose that I carry in the rear, and a 5' extender that I believe is less than 36" contracted. May have to look into your solution if I decide to carry the extender. I only bought it to reach my home clean-out drain. It's just a touch over 15' from where I park the trailer.

I find the shorter sewer hose is more manageable over a longer one, thus I carry longer water hoses.

I carry my extra sewer hose, water line, extension cord, and a couple other rarely used items in a plastic bin pushed deep into the depths of the under bed storage. I don't use this stuff very often, but it is fairly easy to move a couple things, then hook it with the awning rod to pull it out for access.

I really like that drain hose setup so I put a 6" Tube on the back of my 19' behind the spare tire.. the hose and big elbow fit easily in there...only required one screw to hold it all in place..

I need to add that I was looking for 5" PVC pipe and couldn't find any so went with 6" and it worked out fine.

On my 17B I added another length 4" PVC under the trailer in addition to the shorter piece that came from escape. The pipe was the full width of the trailer. And like many others I had to file the connecter nubs of the sewer hose to fit in the pipe. I also chose drain pipe with all the holes in it, I thought the air flow would aid in drying and reduce the "stank".

Having the two holders gave me the capability to always connect to sewer if available. Most sites are designed to fit large units, having a small trailer and short hose may leave you closer to the road that you want.

My piece of advice if adding a storage pipe to your trailer is to put screw caps at both ends if they will be accessible, could save a whole bunch of messing around on these multi connected sewer hoses if someone doesn't connect them before storing.

Steve, I am wondering if the tube is better to have back there and where and how the one screw is put.

We left the cap at a campground once. We returned a couple of weeks later and it was still sitting there in the same place. That was pretty funny to see.

Cathy, the 6" tube is a snug fit behind the trailer captured by the spare tire bracket on my 19'. I determined that if I pushed the tube down on the metal frame supports under each end of the tube that I could drill and tap a capturing screw through the spare tire support bracket and then the tube couldn't go anywhere afterward. The screw is 10-32 stainless steel with the length cut so it barely protrudes into the PVC tube...BTW, If I saw a dump tube cap left in a campsite I would leave it also!...
