Can you spot Waldo-dog? That's my old neighbor's dog who has since moved away. I am a dog magnet!
RV sewer hose is one thing that I want to set up and forget about, especially after I have started using it...Ick. I bought my RV used and the previous owner had some nice PVC ramps to keep gravity working in my favor. I could have bought a slinky-type support to go underneath the ramp but bricks work just as well for me. This was a nice set up and it didn't need any attention...until...a storm came through and blew the hose off of it's ramp. Then I had to set it all up again and again. And, I might add, a stretchy hose full of liquid does not want to go back on to a ramp. It was very happy on the ground. So, I got out some plastic cable ties to tie the hose to the ramp but the sun ate them. Then I tried twist ties and they rusted. Then I tried duct tape but the sun ate that too. And then, the sun ate my hose so when I emptied my black water tank there was a putrid fountain of, well, nothing that should ever be fountaining!
Finally I bought some large PVC pipe from the hardware store. I had seen fellow RVers use this trick when I lived at the RV park but my sewer hose was mostly under shade back then. I threaded the new sewer pipe through the hose and now, hopefully, the sun won't eat it. I might need a little more pipe.
The pipe costs me $30 and the sewer hose costs me $30 per year so if my pipe keeps my sewer hose protected so that it lasts for 2 years it will be worth doing since the PVC pipe should last for a very long time. I predict, if I can keep all of the hose shaded, it will last for 5 years or more.
