I've got one of those clear "elbowed" sewer fasteners at one end of the slinky and a form fit on the other so I can't use a modified 5" fence post. I put my sewer hose in a 5 gallon plastic pail with a lid on it and carry it in the bathroom until I get to my camp site. I carry an extension hose in my round PVC holder.

I use the 5 inch fence post. The elbow fits inside and the "thing" that screws into the ground connection also fits. I put a 1/4 inch bolt through each end to hold things in and allow air to circulate. The holes I drilled for the bolt are a bit tight and I also put a wingnut on each bolt. The fence post is attached to the trailer bumper with 4 long hose clamps. Well, 8 actually fastened together to make them long enough to go around the fence post and the bumper. Cheap, simple, and works out very well.

I have the bike hitch Floyd so I'm not sure I can do this. I read where someone installed the tube farther under the trailer and ended up cracking the storage tank....hence, my thought of installing it under the front tongue.

Sounds good Bob and I was thinking about doing the same thing by using the hose clamps. Are you using the metal ones you screw tight? I think someone used zip ties too but I'm not sure how long they are. Hopefully the hitch won't prevent me from putting it on the bumper.

Floyd, did you use kiltz prior to painting it black or use plastic spray paint?

Mine is large round PCV drainage pipe with screw on caps at the ends and its located under the battery at the front on the Scamp, close to the house. It takes a 15' hose and elbow no problem. Its attached with hose clamps. Been on the trailer at least 7 years and I do travel on rough gravel back roads from time to time and clearance hasn't been an issue with it located there.

Here's what I did on my Fiber Stream. I replaced the original bumper with custom brakets that fit within the tube frame, and then attached two sections of 4" PVC pipe. The bottom one is PVC weeping tile with 3/4" holes in the bottom every foot (for draining), while the top is solid PVC. Have a screw in plug on one end, and a blank cover on the other. Screw in plugs are on opposite sides. Slinky goes in the bottom, tarp poles in the top one.

My bumper is made of steel, I welded it to the original bumper, then I welded unistrut across the back and made bumper guards from the feet of an old weight bench. I then added RV bumper plugs to the ends and topped it off with a black rubber runner.

I put mine under the back end of our 16 and attached it to the frame. The end comes out by the gray water drain. I have the bike hitch and does not interfear with it.
