That's not encouraging. I remember that thread, and I thought it was a good idea.

Since the bumper is only good for holding the hose, what about "perforating" it? I wonder if it would help if you went along and drilled holes in the bottom for additional ventilation and drainage?

Or would the introduction of more exposed metal just exacerbate the problem?

The hose will have spots worn in it from movement on the road and will eventually fail prematurely. It is an industry wide thing with the sewer hose but I stopped carrying hoses in there years ago and now slide my PVC hose supports in that 4 in. bumper.

Since we have the "C" channel bumper we really didnt have much of an option but I would still think about the 6x6 PVC storage. If you plan on keeping your TT for a long time or use a bike rack etc off the bumper I'd pass on putting the hose in there due to possible rusting inside/out. Once its painted black you never know its under there. Holds 2 decent sized hoses and all the fittings, seals etc. and drilled for drainage/air flow. My best mod to date!
