Sewer Hose / Ladder Storage

Been a while since I posted anything, but have been out of work since March, so mods and such have been at a minimum. BUT, received another donation to feed my addiction, so got another project done. I've got a few people that like to see me feeding my addiction to working on these things day after day, so every now and then, a nice gift shows up. I know it's been done a 100 times, but figured I'd post it since I finally got mine done. I had bought the PVC fence posts last year while I was still working, but never got around to it, then of course the oilfield went to the pits and there the posts sat idle, until today.

Pretty simple. 1x1 aluminum tubing, 5/16" all-thread, nylock nuts, washers, 5x5 PVC fence posts and caps, and 4" rain gutters with some wood inserts and handles. The front post houses one of those 7' ladders that fold into a square, the rear holds the sewer hose and fittings. Yes, I drilled the frame, but like all of our rigs, the warranty pretty much got voided the first week I owned it. No worse than the 100 other holes drilled in it.

Nice looking version of that mod. One question, How did you attach the caps on the outside ends?

Caps just have a hole drilled from top to bottom and have a 1/4" bolt with keeper pin on the bottom. May not be the final version, but it was the quickest to get it usable for now.

What did you use on the lower moulding /trim separating the side wall and the aluminum bottom piece running the length of the camper? On my 2016, the trim piece and aluminum are black and when exposed to sun expand causing the caulked seal to fail.

Hey Cosmo. The trim is not stock for sure. I did that modification last year as the seal continually failed and molding warped. Here's the link to that thread, page 3 has pictures I think.

Not a problem since, plus I like the look better. Used black on the from and rear to change it up.

Biggest problem is the way that trim is secured, or lack thereof. I've had that same trim on other rigs with no problem. Easier to do what I did though instead of pulling all the skirts and trim off.

BigJohn, I'd forgotten about this thread. Glad you reposted it!
Did you wind up painting the screws and do the screws go above, below or through the original trim strip? It looks like they might be just below.
