On our second TT , that we bought used, we found a sewer hose stored in the rear bumper. I removed the sewer hose and found out it had numerous tiny holes in it. Tuns out the rear bumper rusted inside and damaged the sewer hose. Because of that I straped a 6x6 fence post on top of my rear bumper and use that to store my sewer hose.

Check out the sewer dump caddy. This was on our last toy hauler, would work with any trailer. slick set up bolts to frame, stores hose and also has sliding tubes that supports your sewer hose while hooked up at site. Picking up our new seismic end of may and will install one on it. This system was very neat and easy to use, everything right by sewer drain of trailer. Check it out something you might like.

This idea rocks...I though my red neck PVC sewer drain and threaded end cap was the ticket.

Would a piece of vinyl spouting fit inside of the bumper to keep the sewer hose moisture from rusting the bumper? Just a thought?

Doubt it. The inside diameter of the rear bumper is just a hair larger than the sewer hose.
For about $20.00 I bought a vinyl fence post , 2 end caps, a small hinge and a few large hose clamps. I glued one end cap on the fence post and attached the other end cap to the fence post with the hinge. I then used 3 long hose clamps to strap the fence post onto the top of my rear bumper.

The fittings don't fit easily making it a hassle plus the other items that go with the tube itself doesn't fit in there anyway so we use rubbermaid tub stashed in storage area. Now that I see/read the potential rust issue we wouldn't stuff it in there even if it did fit easily.

Since I can't store the sewer piping in my 23B bumper (too small), I'm going with the 5"x5" fence post. Problems is I have two sections of piping that when stored end to end exceed 8 ft in length and won't fit in one section of the 8 ft post. I wanted it all stored outside the TT. I am considering two sections side by side. I figure I could also get fishing gear in there as well.

I am able to store 2 10' sections of sewer hose in my fence post sewer hose holder. In fact the fence post I use is only 6' long. I placed a section of vinyl rain gutter inside the fence post and use that as a slide out tray for the sewer hose.

You may want to store the hose in a rubbermaid(or similar) tote and not in the bumper because after a few years your bumper will start to rust due to all of the moisture sitting inside the bumper. Just make sure you rinse the hose really well before putting it away. When emptying your holding tanks make sure you do black first then grey.
