I tried bolts with wing nuts solution, it doesn't work convenient for daily use. These caps fit perfect to 4" plastic posts and are great.

So Frank as you know I am totally green at this trailering business so this may be a really stupid question. I have used the hose that was provided with my trailer and it seems to work OK, what am I missing???

Pat, if it works for you, that's fine. What works, works. I just wanted a more substantial system, no big deal. I also have an expanding leg thing that supports the hose while giving it slope (http://www.amazon.com/Camco-43041-Si...r+Hose+Support).

Thanks Frank, I was just wondering if I should expect it to fall apart while I was using it.

If its one of the inexpensive light weight ones then you may want to be careful not to drag it across rough ground as it my spring a leak... which is why many here have gone to using a bit heavier slinky hose. The RinoFlex hose is another pretty popular hose. Its the one I ended up with after having gone through a couple of lighter weight/cheaper hoses in very short order. The nice thing about the RinoFlex is it compacts up nicely so you can store a longer hose in the holder than the standard cheaper/lighter hoses.

BTW - Nice work Frank. It looks good.

That RhinoFlex hose with the link posted is the same one I just built that new fence post holder for. Much better quality than the one Parkliner provides.

Thanks Carol!

Thanks Carol and Frank, I will look into this, I am thinking it couldn't get much worse than having that hose fall apart while using it. YIKES…..

These things are not expensive Pat, and make life so much easier when traveling. Come on over, and I'll put a fence post on your battery cover.

Stinky Slinky Sad; I made a similar slinky holder similar to Carol's & Frank's photos while my 2005 13 ft Scamp was in storage. As I had bolted the clasp holder to the edge of the cap, I had to make some cutouts on the holder so the cap would fit - not an easy job to make these: [ . Cut the post to 6" shorter than trailer width, glued one end cap (mistake - should have seen Frank's post). Picked up the trailer at tire store who was going to lift the trailer so I could crawl under to position my shiny white new slinky holder....big surprise!!....there was absolutely NO place to position or secure it under the trailer, unless I drilled holes in cross frame, and I'm not about to weaken the frame.

Plan B - So onto Frank's idea of bolting it to the battery lid...unfortunately the lid is secure by a webbed belt that buckles on top of the lid...so no way to secure lid to battery box, unless I took off the gas canister. And no room behind the battery box. Can't put the battery box on top of the slinky holder, it's too heavy, and no room between battery box and gas tank to even put your hands to secure the battery lid from the front.

Plan C- Attach to top of rear bumper...no room below spare tire.

Plan D - Somehow attach to end of rear bumper - would crunch & self-destruct at impact with a concrete barrier or another vehicle.

Plan E - Drink a couple of margaritas and do what??? There's gotta be a way to use my "slinky creation".

Suggestions GREATLY APPRECIATED!

Bill those decals would look 10,000% better than that horrible STINKY slinky tube on the front (IMHO)

I added a couple of 5" fence posts under the back of my Escape, one for the sewer hose & the other for a folding ladder. I used a eye bolt & short bungee cords for the sewer cover, but the later added ladder storage one has a spring clip:

Our 2013 NTU (New To Us) Casita 17 has the hollow rear bumper for the slinky, as you see on the stickbuilts; was that an available option? The PO had bought a 15' Rinoflex slinky, which he gave us us, brand new in the box. It just barely fits in the bumper tube; I worry that it's going to pop off the rubber insert covers that you push in to 'lock'. So I need to either lengthen the bumper, or find some way to make sure the covers don't come off on the road.

Suggestions? Also there's one piece that doesn't fit; the multi-size sewer-hole adapter, so I guess I'll have to find somewhere to store it. Wish the Casita had an outside storage compartment like a lot of the stickies do.
