Sewer hose storage

Hi all

Bought a new sewer hose and the couplings are too large to fit in my bumper on my 17’ Boler. They won’t even fit in a 4” pvc pipe. I want to secure something under the trailer to store my hose. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks a lot

Maybe get a different sewer hose that will fit in either the bumper or a 4" PVC pipe?

You don't say what size your bumper is Daryl but my SDs is 4" square and I have the Rhino hose. It's a tight fit for the twist on end connecters but they do go in if their at the tubes corners. FWIW, I tied a lanyard on the end so I can pull it out otherwise it was a pita to remove. Some folks have added 5" PVC fence tubes mounted to the frame for the hose. There are some posts/pics of those mods.

Go to the lumber yard and find a larger diameter pvc pipe and fittings. Drill some air holes in it so the wet stinky hose can dry out between uses.

I added a 5" fence post to the front tongue, cut to size. Get the caps for the post and mounting clips. Found mine at a ranch supply. I use the stock 4" tube to store others longer items, like clean out wand, awning tools etc.

That looks clean and lightweight. Great idea. I will go with that !

Sewer hose storage

I bought a 5” square tube at Home Depot. At the time I was shopping online cause the nearest one was 50 miles away. They actually listed three different ones that were all called 5”. If you order, you can pickup in the store. Make sure you read the product description so you get the biggest. I got the biggest and it measures 4 11/16 inside. My hose and fittings fit nicely inside.
I bought stainless hinges and stainless spring loaded latches from amazon.

Daryl maybe pick up a section of 5" Plastic Pipe

That is what we did and workd great. What you can also do is pick up a Half Bucket like half of a 25gallon Bucket and put in there take the ends off stick the two hoses in it and fit the other pieces into it, we have also done this as I'm sure they are making the Bumper Pipes much smaller.

The fence post is a great idea! Did you use a hinge on the opposite side from the catch?

Our 5" PVC fence post was cut to fit and has ridden 6000 miles for us..works great.the end caps are held on by bungee cords wh are fixed thru a hole in the rear side of the ppost and out in the center of the end caps..tight enuf to hold the caps on.... and the post fits behind our propane tanks on our Casita I also store the wash out WAND inside. The whole thing is tied on with 4 18" heavy duty black zip ties..secure for a year so far. The zip ties go thru holes in the bottom side of the post and around the frame rails and back up into the post..2 on each side..works great.

My casting rod goes in the rear bumper ;-)

Cliff,

The tray is an excellent idea. Very creative. Where did you find the pin that holds the cap on?

🤔 Aluminum rod at HD. SS hardware also at HD. Used 4 , 1/4-28 cap screws with fender washers to attach to frame. So far towed from VT to Florida and it’s still there😎
