I am afraid to remove the screws since the seem to be holding the metal bumper cover on.
Remove the screws and use a pop rivet that won't rust.

That's a good idea! When we get back from this trip, I will do that.

We have enough room to keep it in the compartment where the dump valves are, but I would rather keep the pipe separated as much as possible.

Had the same problem with the sheet metal screws on our new Sunseeker 2450 (can't fit the stinky slinky into the bumper). Happened to have a box of Ziploc XL storage bags - I cap both ends of the hose and store it in the Ziploc in the compartment. Also have a separate little clear plastic box for the rinse hose and extra caps/elbows, wipes, etc.

I own Amazon crap. It will not fit in my bumper only one end. I understand what you are saying but I tried 100 different ways. IT WILL NOT FIT. And I stick with my bad review.Just one end go's in without a problem....

I take that one that doesn't fit off and put in the box with my other fittings. Then it will fit.

Thanks for all of your replies. We will be storing it in a large bin for now and will see if any other solutions work better for us. We are camping in North Carolina on our first ever RV outing and so far so good, except for the poor internet connection. Wish us luck!

TexasBob, That is correct, the only way to do it. But and a big BUTT is that Amazon states it will fit into a 4" bumper, That is just sales BS. I did shave my knobs off and it still barely fit. I bought a Rhino Hose years ago. New it would not fit then but Amazon at that time did not make that statement. I thought they had a redesign but of course it was just BS. I wanted to carry 40' of hose which would have fit in the 4" bumper. Now only 1/2 will fit in again. It's just false advertising in my opinion.....So BUYER BEWARE.....

Good Luck and Happy Camping. You might think about a jet pack from Verizon for your connection. I'm at Oceana NAS now and have 4G LTE with it....
