A picture, they say, is worth a thousand words.
Everytime I see a sewer hose on the shoulder, I think of this photo.

I ran SS screws thru both end caps so I would not loose them now I am worried the weight of the screws will rip the bumper right off the frame.

The Bumper Tube by its construction has a (Butt Weld) the full length on the bottom! Welding Slag/Imperfections aided buy Rust cause (Wear) on your hose as well as (Rust Stains). Very simple remedy (Line bottom and 1" up the sides with (Vinyl Home Soffit Material)! Have a (Vinyl Siding installer) form the piece in their (Brake). Slide the piece in the bumper and (Presto Vinyl lined Bumper)! Youroo!!

We carried our sewer hose in the bumper of our Flagstaff for about 8 years,,,
never had a problem,,, until the cap fell off one time,,, hose came out and we drug it a couple of miles down a gravel road,,, it only had about a million holes in it,,, that I did not see until we dumped the next time !!!
First thing I did when we got the new Sunseeker a couple of years ago was drill and bolt the caps in the bumper !!!

Good idea youroo,,, but if you did not have a Siding Installer,,,
Maybe you could just cut a pic of vinyl siding or something to set in the bumper,,, I am guessing the weld in on the bottom ???

salesman told me when you sell your camper they look at the bumper. if you store your hose there it is rusty and disgusting. keep mine in basement in a ruubbermaid with wheels.

6" PVC pipe and a gutter mounted under the trailer. There is a thread on here somewhere (I'll try to get the link). Works awesome for holding 2 hoses and my elbow fitting.

I guess I have been lucky. After spending thousands of $$$$ on a new RV, my friendly dealer has always given me a "welcome box" with many essentials including a 10' sewer hose. Granted it is all from China and worth less than $10.
