Rhino sewer hose doesn't fit in bumper -- suggestions?

Just realized my Rhino sewer hose doesn't fit in the bumper -- the elbow fitting is just a tad too big. What do folks use to store their hoses? I think I saw a thread about installing a large tube under the camper to hold the hose -- is that the most common solution?

I carry all the sewer hook-up gear in a plastic tote and store in the basement. I take the bin out at the end of each trip and open to dry out.

Either intall a PVC tube, or a 4X4 pvc fence post.. The last alternative is a have aplastic bin just for these hoses.

Welcome to the club. I can't get mine in either. my storage tube was a dealer install.

I too got a plastic storage box and put the hose in the box with other fittings, gloves and items I use in connection with black water cleaning. I also got a zipper closure wardrobe bag and put it in the bag before going in the box.

This is my solution for storing sewer hose.

Before I installed the tube-type sewer hose container, I simply ground down the lugs slightly so that the rhino hose would fit in the bumper - still works fine with the ground-down lugs. On the other hand, I recommend using something other than the bumper as a storage place as eventually the inside of the bumper will rust and then abrade your sewer hose, causing holes. (holes in the sewer hose are not a good thing )

That's odd, mine fits but i have to line it up with the tabs in the corners of the bumper. It is snug but i do not have to force it in or out.

we mounted 6 in pvc pipes under the trailer, I put threaded rod thru the end in an x to keep the hose in but let air circulate. The ends we access from have the pvc screw in caps for easy access, I also pitched the slightly to the open end to help any moisture out. They are big enough that I can keep my adapters and couplers in the tubes also.

Thin wall PVC pipe from Lowe's

I used the thin wall 4" PVC pipe a threaded adapter, a plug, small boat cleat (Used as a handle). Used 4 SS clamps per storage pipe. Ground the lugs on the Rhino hose, cut the "Flap" ears off with hacksaw. All the elbows, clear hose fittings and other fittings are stored in a walmart
plastic storage box with a lid.

Mine fits if I line it up with the corners but I have to disconnect the bottom part of the elbow and I store that in a bag in a pail I keep in the storage compartment. Old Guys
