GypsumJim...the holes in the end caps are to allow air flow in the bumper. If they are closed off, you will trap moisture from the hose inside the *metal* bumper.

metal + water = rust.

Try end caps like these:

Amazon.com: Camco 40325 No Insect Bumper Cap Pack of 2 - No Saver: Automotive

It will keep the mice and bugs out and still ventilate...if you are going to store it there.

I've been meaning to do something different, I've never liked the idea of putting the hose in there for fear of this exact reason (and possibly rusting out the bumper).

So, I bought a new hose and a storage tube designed to carry it...

64" E-Z Hose Carrier- Black - Valterra A04-0153XBK - Sewer Accessories - Camping World

Yes, I could have done the 4" fence post idea you've seen here in the forums...I just wanted to buy it and be done with it.

DON'T STORE IT IN THE BUMPER!!
I've only had my Jayco a couple months. Previously my old Kodiak had a small compartment that we put it in but the jayco lacks storage except the slide/pass thru. I will look at something else to prevent this...thanks for the heads up!

Am I the only one who stores it in the bed of my TV? We use full hookup sites, so this won't work for dry campers. After dumping my tanks I remove it from the trailer, run city water through a dedicated short run of hose, remove it from the site's sewer and put it all in a large leaf bag until we get home where I let it dry out. I had one of those heavy duty yellow Good Sams bags for two or three years. Yup, I'd rinse it, too.
No need to remove attachments or fuss with the bumper storage.

I get no ventilation anyway. The inside is all rusty now, even after only 1 year.

I plan to put screening in the caps, just didn't have some handy. I do have some at home though and will fix it next trip.

Do you leave it in your truck all year? Otherwise, you've gotta store it somewhere

You're right. We live on several acres with several outbuildings, stalls, 2 barns. Biggest storage problem is keeping track of where I put stuff.
