I have a friend who hung two 6" PVC pipes transversely under his camper, behind the rear axle using metal straps like an HVAC tech might use. . One end of the pipe is capped and glued, the other has a screw-on end like an inspection access to a sewer pipe.
Keeps his dump hose in one, fishing poles in the other.

Got a few goodies like a new 7.5 x 20' awning mat, bumper hatches, foldable trash can for the outside kitchen as well as some protect all and some other little things. Oh and who could forget the Winegard Wingman! Now I know that Camping World isn't the cheapest but we just couldn't help ourselves!! That is all, just wanted to share.


On a side note, they had a 20' flagpole by Camco. The damned thing was "on sale" for $179.00!!! WOW!!! So I want a retractable flag pole that I can stick under the front jack and was wondering where others had gotten there's and what they paid.
You could put the Wingman on top of the 20ft flag pole for better recept. Youroo!!

I have to tell you that in my opinion, storing the sewer hose in the bumper is a terrible idea. The wet hose will rust the inside of the bumper and you can't see it. The rust will act like sand paper every time you put it in and take it out. Eventually your hose will get pinhole leaks and ruin it.

The Wingman is not a stand alone device. It has to be attached to the Winegard Sensar antennae.

While true, I think it was a joke...

Wingman, signal booster? We have a signal booster in our TT. Is that the same thing?
Drill a hole through the top of bumper, through the cap to the bottom, run a piece of heave wire through the holes and bend the wire on both ends. Been working like a charm for us.

I think you are confusing the amp powersupply and switch with a signal booster. Here is some infpormation that explains what that wall plate and the Wingman actually do.

I did that. I have threaded caps on both ends. I can store the hose, fittings, cleaning wand, etc in it.

The DH drilled a small hole into both the bumper and the covers and puts a long nail or cotter pin in the hole, can't loose the caps now.
