Well, no room at the inn for poor slinky. Gonna have to live on top of the battery box. If the battery box wasn't there, I might have been able to sling it underneath the chassis, but maybe not too. I think it will be fine her once it is bolted to the top of the battery cover (4 #8 stainless machine screws coming up into the slinky tube with lock nuts).



Now I have to figure out what I can store in the factory mounted slinky tube...

Nice looking install Frank. Did you use two clips per end or just one? Do the end caps fit snug enough that one clip does the deed?

As to what to put in the old tube, we use tubes just like that on construction sites for plans, got any blueprints you need to store?

Thanks Tim!

Two clips per end. One per end would not do it. It could also be hinged one side, clasped the other. I liked the idea of being able to remove both ends, and the package I got contained 4 clasps. Works great and a fairly easy install.

The only plans I have are in my pointy little head. I need to think of something to put in that old tube that would be of little value, but handy. Maybe gloves for the stinky slinky ops?

I thought you were going to remove that old tube for appearance sake.

I wouldn't mind doing that Glenn if I could figure out a way to finish the 4 screw or rivet holes so it looked okay. Actually it is not a clean installation as it is, with silicone covering whatever the fasteners are.

I'm open to suggestion! Thanks,

Frank

Snap-Caps over rivets or screws would work.

Store your fishing poles or guns & ammo.... I can't think that many people would look for anything there but the stinky slinky😄

Frank, you could do a patch, and gelcoat touchup. It would look like new.

Fill the holes with marine epoxy and then cover with bullet decals!

Got it done this afternoon (a break from doing lawn work). I did a lot of measuring before drilling these holes in the top of my battery box. My goal was to keep machine screw heads as far away from battery terminals as possible, and mount the slinky tube such that it did not touch either the trailer or the propane tank cover:



I used #8 stainless steel machine screws 1/2" long with star-washered nuts. I like using those kind of nuts with plastic stuff because you don't need a wrench to tighten them once started. I used the shortest screws I could get through the nuts.



You can sorta see clearances here. It's close to the trailer, but not touching.



And the final product, perfectly centered and mounted. I think it looks good, and is practical. Easy to access and both ends come off for washing.
