New Sewer Hose Storage Tube

Purchased a new, longer sewer hose a few months back but it's just a tad to big (OD of connectors) to slid into 4" square tube bumper without possibly getting stuck......, so had to come up with something else.

Went with a (1) 5" x 5" x 8ft.lg. PVC fence post, (2) 4" wide square bend U-bolts (bent to fit), steel strap, and some fastners....., along with a little gloss black paint over the white PVC finished it off:







The Eagle sits pretty high so I have plenty of ground clearance, and I drilled a few clearance holes along the bottom of the PVC tube for drainage and venting. Do to the spare tire mounting hardware on the bumper I had to install two spacer blocks (have to paint them yet) between the bumper and PVC tube.

I was considering mounting near the TT sewer dump valve connection, but do to the low hung LP gas piping
and a few other issues, plus drilling thru the I-beam frame for mounting...., I went via the path of least resistance

Nice job! Several of us have done this mod. It makes it much easier to store the newer style sewer hoses and fittings.

I plan on doing the same - but I think I'll put it on top of the bumper. I go into some rough area's and have come close to dragging the bumper, much less the bumper -6 inches But that is me - I know many don't....

Anyway, sweet install, thanks for sharing!

That's what I would have liked to have done, but the bottom of my ladder was in the way.

Great idea! I wonder how that would work for transporting 4 ultralight fishing rod/reel combos? I could put 2 in from each end.

I did the same thing but kept mine white which matched the back of the trailer. I used two blocks of masonite to elevate it so it gets over the spare tire hold down bars. I like the way you painted yours black. Good choice.

I bought the stuff to do this mod last year and never did it. Now I have a new TT and need to find the time to complete it. I also wanted to mount on top of the bumper or under the trailer. I haven't thought about the ladder being in the way or the fact I step on the bumper to use the ladder, so I guess thats out of the question. I will still explore under near the dump valve or like you have done.
