Default Protecting Macerator Hose under Vehicle Carriage

Thinking about covering the exposed Macerator Hose under the vehicle carriage of my 2010 RoadTrek 190 Popular protecting it from Road Debris with a piece of 1-1/2" PVC pipe by cutting the PVC in half from end to end.

Would then cover the Macerator Hose with the PVC pipe and securing the PVC pipe with Hose Clamps.

Wondering if this would work, or utilizing other means of protecting the exposed Macerator Hose under the vehicle carriage from Road Debris.

Chafing of the hose from rubbing on the pipe would be my only concern.
Maybe wrap the hose up in silicone wrap http://www.homedepot.com/buy/paint/adhe ... 54318.html
That might be enough protection or still go ahead with your pvc pipe idea. The silicone wrap would eliminate any chafing worries

We replaced the terrible white hose on ours with a Sani-con from the compartment out, and under the van used pvc pipe for most of it, with a piece of heavy duty rubber hose to curve and adapt to the pump. 3 years and counting without any issues.
