Check your sewer hose carrier

Brad & Jacolyn

Recommended Posts

Good Morning,
Just a note about what happened to me yesterday. We pulled out of a park in Tonopah, AZ and started west. We were only on the road about 10 minutes when a trucker blew his horn and pointed under the rig. I pulled over and found that one of my sewer hose carrier pipe straps had broken and the pipe was leaving plastic shavings down the road. I built the carrier out of 4" (I think) PVC pipe and suspended it under the rear of the 5er with strapping. I don't remember what the strapping it is called but it comes on a roll and is about 1" wide and has holes every inch or so. Ours has been under there for 5 years and it finally broke yesterday. Fortunately, I had enough slack left in the strap that I could reattach it on the side of the road and continued on for the day. I replaced both straps yesterday and hope to be good for another 5 years. Just thought I should pass that along. I still have plenty of material left on the pipe but if the trucker had not waved me over I assume that I would have ground it down to nothing including the sewer hose and connectors.

Thanks Brad .... made me look. While mine is not broken .... yet ...... I do now have something else to do on my preventive maintenance list when I get home. I am sure I will spend the entire ride home starring in the mirror to make sure it is still ok!
