What's wrong with one of these?

Mine came with one mounted under, not far from the cleanout, holds 2 lengths of hose. Works great - not even expensive.

The fence post idea is interesting. I was just out looking at the RV thinking about where best to mount a PVC tube and I wondered if underneath would make more sense than on the bumper.

A tub may work also, i need to figure out with my current tubs in the storage compartment what could fit. I have used my Tetris skills from my youth to figure out an optimum storage bin setup for both storage compartments... [emoticon]


5" PVC posts with end caps work very well, and bolted to the frame. PM sent.

Go to Lowes, Home Depot Et-Al and get a 6 or 7" square plastic fence post with caps. also a hinge and a bolt latch.
Now attach the post to the top of the bumper.. I won't go into how to do this but if you use bolts use carrage bolts (Smooth domed head with a square shoulder) from inside (no sharp surfaces inside post)
One end glue the cap on
other end you will need to slightly modify the cap and end so you have a "Tongue" that sticks through a Slot in the bottom of the cap. Hinges on the top.
Hose goes inside, ends fit too.
Close the "lid" and drop the latch bolt through a hole in the "Tongue" of the post gravity will hold the bolt in the hole and anyone who steels the hose.. Well... Would you steel THAT item?

Or you could padlock it but I think that's over kill

Amazon dot com example of the bolt latch you use only the big part.


Home was where I park it. but alas the.

I did the judicial grinding on the portion of the fittings that wouldn't fit.

Wow, the dealer installed a bumper that would not fit the hose? Even if you rotate the hose end? Fence post will work, over or under the bumper. Or a pvc tube on the tounge, not sure what type of camper you have.

I find it best to just leave the hose connected and tie it up under the camper in a few spots. Bonus points if you leave one o the dump valves cracked open just enough to see the car behind you use his windshield wipers occasionally…..
This reminds me….just do it like my buddy Cousin Eddy last week!

Well I went with the 5" fence post and caps, everything goes in the post, two hose lengths, 45 degree elbow, and 90 degree drain connection. I can't think of putting that stinky stuff in a tote in the basement or storage compartment.

Nice job , mine was not quite that fancy , I just ran a small bolt thru the cap ,and post ,and drilled a small hole in the end of the bolt for a clip to hold it .
