I lost my end cap by the second trip out with our new camper and the spare tire cover on the third trip - it's great that they make this stuff for the outside but don't make it so it will stay. Anyway, I am thinking of drilling a hole through the bumper and the end caps and dropping a pin through it and then putting a a cotter pin through it to hold the caps in place. Thoughts?

This past weekend I saw a late 90's Nomad TT that had end caps at it locked in place with a button that clicked into a hole when you pushed it in. When you want to remove it you just depress the button and pull the cap out. I am surprised others haven't followed this example.

Good idea. I used to have a piece of coat hanger thru it when I had a bumper.

Rubbermaid tote to store the poop tubes and appliances here. Valterra hose won't fit in the bumper, end caps don't stay in the bumper, and gotta have somewhere to store the elbows, donut, etc, Bin fits in the basement, no stink, no engineering necessary, or stuff hanging off the underbelly.

My '12 26BH had the holes in the bumper and tabs on the caps to keep them in place, to my surprise my '12 29QBH doesn't. Been thinking about drilling some but haven't yet.

I used a loose ty-rap through the cap hole and top of the bumper.

That is an idea I had not thought of either. Just drill one hole in the top of the bumper and loop it through the cap hole - Thanks!
