T@B Grey Water Sewer Line and Sewer Line Holder

I made a T@B grey water sewer line and devised an easy way to store it on the T@B.

First I took an old garden hose and cut it off short, and mounted another female hose connector on the other end.

I purchased this water hose adapter and siliconed it to a sewer hose connector.
The connector looks like this.

I put the connector into one end of a standard RV sewer hose, and on the other end, a standard RV sewer elbow. I also have a couple other lengths of sewer hose and some connectors if I need more sewer hose.
To store it on my T@B, I purchased a piece of 4" PVC cut to 6 foot in length.
I got a couple of large hose clamps that would go around the PVC
I got two threaded pipe ends, and two threaded pipe caps.

I then drilled holes in my tounge frame approximately 6 5/8" from the front of the T@B. I had to be extremely careful when drilling the driver side as there was a power cord on the inside of the frame and I didn't want to knick that with my drill.
I also drilled holes in the hose clamps to mount them to the T@B frame. I used machine screws, lock washers, and nylon lock nuts to mount them through the holes.

I used PVC primer and PVC glue to mount the threaded ends on either end of the PVC.
I slid the PVC pipe through the hose clamps and tightened them down, then I just slide the entire sewer line and connectors into the PVC pipe. I used a Dremel to file down some connectors and tabs that were on the hose adapter so that it would fit inside the PVC pipe.
Then I just screw in the pipe caps and it's ready for travel.
I'm not sure this would work on T@Bs that have the plastic propane tank and battery cover, but I'd thought I'd show everyone since so many folks have been asking about Grey Water Sewer Lines for their T@B. I had actually made the sewer line more than a year ago, but hadn't used it much, cause I really didn't have room for it. Now, it stores easily and is out of the way!!
Thanks for reading!!

Do they use lock washers in the sewer line, or are my eyes deceiving me? It looks like in picture 2 that there are lock washers there.
