I replaced my factory bumper with a thicker steel bumper. My sewer hose no longer fits inside. I tried to use a 4 inch water pipe, but the end attachments still don't fit inside. What mods have you done to store your sewer hose?

I use one of these and it is currently zip tied to my rear bumer: Clicky It will get mounted permanantly in a couple weeks, haven't decided where.
I have these bungeed on each end to keep the slinky inside: Clicky

I can't remember if it is the 4 or 5 inch post, but it works rather well.

I went the route of attaching a 6x6 vinyl post across the frame in front of the bumper. Our hose fits with a LOT of room to spare.



Search around... you'll find some other creative solutions people have used.

Happy Camping!
John.

I used a PVC fence post with end caps...attached to a frame cross member with super heavy duty zip ties all from Lowes...Works great and has not budged in 3 years.

i used what downtheroad used, but it IS my rear bumper. my sister-in-law crunched the oem bumper, so i built a pair of adapter brackets and mounted the plastic fence post cover. the pic does not show the end covers, or the fact that i cut off the viable parts of the brackets and painted the new "step" white and added some non-skid to it.

I added a roll of black 3ply garbage bags under my sink. When its time to store the hose one of them is tied up mounted in the compartment forward of my hookups with the hose in it and nothing else. Very Cheap, Very Easy, and no tools required...

I drilled access/drain holes in the post and using a long extention on my drill, attached the post directly to the frame rails with self tapping screws.

Happy Camping!

I used a 5" PVC fence post with end caps...attached to the frame with super plumbers tape (metal strips with holes) and screwed to frame. I eve put a hinge on one end cap to be able to open the holder like a door and used a section of PVC rain gutter inside for a slide out tray and drilled several holes in the bottom of the tray and fence post to allow water to drain out and air to circulate to eliminate smell. I placed it right next to my sewer drain so it is very handy and easy to get to. I love it.
