Question Storing the sewer hose..

The bumper on my trailer has end caps that come off so the sewer hose can be stored there.

The problem is, the connectors on each end of the hose are too big to fit into the bumper.

I imagine I'm not the first one to notice this...

Am I supposed to remove the ends everytime I store it away? Or do I need to find a larger PVC pipe or something to store it?

For the record, this is the hose I'm trying to store:

It will fit, I have same one. Take the orange part off the bottom that goes into the ground and store seperately. The camper side, you have to turn the corners into the corner of the storage slot.

Yep, as noted, you have to take the elbow off, but otherwise it fits by lining up the tabs on the connectors with the corners of the bumper. Check the tightness of the end caps, I had one vibrate loose and go away somewhere in Nevada. At least the hose stayed inside!
Some people drill a hole in the bumper into the inside flange of the cap, and then use a piece of wire to pin it into place. There are also end caps available that have a push-in center that expands the size, so it grips the inside of the bumper better.

I have the same hose. I installed a fence post under the 5th wheel to store it. Put it right by the dump valves so everything is in one spot. I had the same fence post on my last TT and just transferred it to the 5er.

You can leave the white part on too, just the orange part.

As an aside, last weekend I pulled out my hose from the rear bumper and out came a 2 foot long mouse nest. I taped the holes in the end caps and am hoping for the best.

Yes it will fit as previously stated. It can be a little snug so I tied a short length of small diameter rope around one end to aid in its removal from the bumper storage.

I store a collapsable folding ladder in the bumper, and my sewer hose in a "fencepost", like goducks does, as noted above.

...I have been storing mine in the bumper. Pulled it out on the last trip and noticed that the ribs of the hose were rubbed through where it was sitting in the bumper. Completely ruined the hose. It is only a year old.

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!!

goducks, how have you attached the brackets to the 5th wheel frame? I am looking at doing something like that. Yours is exactly how I want to do mine but am at a quandry as to how to attach the threaded bolts.
