New Rhino Flex does fit!
 
Just got our new Rhino flex hose and it does fit in the 22fb rear bumper, it's tight but success. The drain end removable adapter doesn't but no big deal. I think I'll file the ears down some on the swivel connector but I'm a happy camper now. Slinky hose.....stored away!!! Headed out this wkd and can't wait!

Happy Camping!!!

Our fits too but that's a good idea to file the tabs a bit :Beerchug: . It is tight and sometimes hard to grab and pull out !!

Another suggestion
 
I also filed the flats down slightly so it wasnt so tight. I then used a lenghth of small (maybe 16 ga) insulated electrical wire, and looped it around the outside diameter of the hose, just behind the coupling, and left enough about a 6" length for a "handle"( I used a butt joint connector to connect the two ends of the wire). Now I put the sewer hose in the bumper and push it back a few inches from the cap. When it's time to pull it out again, I grab the wiring to pull it out. Makes it easier to pull out.

Another good idea ^^^^^

I put a cable tie around mine to pull it out, so far so good. I think the electrical wire is a good idea and a much better grip because it is a tight fit in that rear bumper.

I also cut off the tabs so it would fit better in the bumper.

Found if I turned the ears to fit into the corners of my sq bumper, it would work. It moves around in transit, and I must turn it as above, to remove. Figured if it was tight, it would stay inside, should the caps pop off.

Just be careful if the inside of the bumper starts to rust it may damage the sewer hose as it is pulled in and out.

USMC, I wondered about the rust inside the bumper. How in the heck can ya get it out?
