Yeah....you have to leave 3 of the turned down sides on the cap(the part that slips over the post) and trim the 4th side off to allow the cap to be hinged where it will open down....you have to watch which way to turn bolts and screws to keep them from ripping the hose when it's placed in the post or removed from the post.....the pin idea allows for less to tear up.

I've seen this mod before and I'm confused. Does your rear bumper not have sufficient storage space for the sewer hose? We don't use any extensions and so I'm wondering if that is why this mod is necessary. Thanks

My rear bumper only has enough for the hose with no ends. I would have to remove the ends of my Rhinoflex every time I use it. Plus I have a screw in adaptor and a clear 90 that all now fit neatly together. This mod was an absolute must for me.

I like it, nice job. I am able to fit my 2 sewer hoses with the ends in my bumper, but this might be a place where I can store other items.

Space is one concern. I have no issue with space though. The reason I will be doing it is the rust issue. I am already seeing rust in my bumper after storing the hose there for 6 months.

I'm new to RVing but as you talk with the more experienced RVer's they will caution you about rust issues in the rear bumper because of storing a wet hose....with me, I have a new TT but felt like now was the time to eliminate this potential problem, if that was a possibility.

Cut 2 of the "ears" off the Rhinoflex and it will fit in your bumper.. I did that .. much easier mod..
