Mine does not fit no matter what angle the “ears” are. Hence the tube. Rhino brand hose.

Have you looked inside? Perhaps there is an obstruction. A piece of junk adhering to the inside of the bumper? A rivet not correctly installed sticking out?

You have a fairly new BigFoot. Did you get a starter kit with water hose and sewer hose? The kit I got has a hose that will fit but there is only one fitting. Actually I'm glad the rear bumper has thicker metal.

ThomasC, I don't remember if I got a starter kit or not. I was so ticked off at the finance manager I just wanted to get out. That plus a hellacious storm was bearing down and I wanted to get home asap. The salesman was great, as was the service manager, however. I owned a Casita prior to this and have a bunch of crap laying around my garage. Considering the subject, maybe I should not say "crap" laying around, I don't want to give the wrong mental image....

This caught me by surprise as well. I ended up making a fence post sewer carrier and attaching it to the top of the bumper with zipties. I've thought about attaching a sewer hose carrier underneath somewhere, but I don't really like the idea of using self-tapping screws through the frame.

So what does everyone use? I thought these things were standard.
I mounted a vinyl fence post behind the rearmost tire and put a piece of vinyl gutter in that to hold my hose, extension hose and connectors. The gutter slides in and out. Post caps cover the openings on either side.

I made mine out of black sewer pipe and fittings for about half the price plus better made than the white plastic ones which may break down from ultra-violet sunlight over time. About the same lifespan as most rv trailers , today except Bigfoot.

I purchased a piece of the 5 inch PVC fence post and two end caps and mounted it under the trailer. There are several places you can put the sewer storage. I have seen them mounted under and on top of the rear bumper and a lot of other places. It was cheap and it holds the hose and attachments. You can go online and google sewer hose storage and you will see a lot of good ideas. That is where I got the fence post idea.

I know this may not be what you are looking for but I bought the same trailer in Denver last September. Since I was already into it with big $$$, I bought a whole new sewer hose from Lippert. (Lippert Components 360784 Master 20' Waste Extension Kit). This fits in the BF hose holder. Then I also bought the tote kit which I keep attached to the drain outlet all the time. (Lippert 360789 Tote Tank Adaptor Kit Waste Master). This combination allows you to keep the same BF sewer storage system plus the Lippert hose is 10x better IMHO, with its smooth interior hose surface. Not cheap, about 200.00 total. You can also buy a 90-degree elbow to change the angle of the hose leaving the trailer. Sorrow I don't have a picture at this time. Items are available on Amazon.

Hey thanks for this. I have never been happy with the way the hoses rinse out. They seem to but do they really.

What did you think of Trailer world? They are on a real nice street aren't they.

Thanks for the Lippert hose recommendation. I looked at it on Amazon and saved it to my cart, but I don't see what the difference is from any other accordion type of hose. When you expand it are they not all smooth inside? And when it collapses you still probably wind up with some leftover sewer juice inside.

While I am able to fit the Rhino into mine, the trailer came with a Ultimate Sewer Hose

https://smile.amazon.com/Prest-Fit-1...5833308&sr=8-3

It does not have the large ears, and easily fits the rear bumper. While the Rhino is a tight fit.

As far as the 5x5 PVC fence mod. I did that to my 16' Scamp. Works really well, I could see a few ways you could add one to the bigfoot. Photos of my scamp mod below.

I use the enclosure for something else and put the sewer stuff in a plastic tub with a locking lid. It travels in the back of our truck when on the road.


I use the blue line product. It fits the Silvercloud storage compartment with the the trailer connector attached. It’s a pretty convenient system. The press-fit connectors for accessories are quick and secure. Aside from eventual bumper rust-out a decent option for any Bigfoot.

How are those push on connectors?

I believe the connectors are slightly tapered for a snug, leak free fit. Very quick to deploy and separate. I see that end caps are available as well.

Blue line is the same one that I linked. I found it worked well, but I like the Rhino better. Might go back to the press-o-fit (blue line) as it is easier to get in and out.

The Rhino works fine, I've noticed, in the Rose Garden.
