One of my very first projects was to install SS screws to hold the caps in place, followed by installation of 5" PVC fence post sewer hose carrier.

Our bumper had a hole on the top and bottom for the little round "nibs" of the cap to fit into. Not just a friction fit. I thought these were standard.

You guys are a tough crowd! Shamefully, I had the same thing happen where the slinky tried to make a getaway after traveling 28 miles of potholed and heaved road - read my fillings were just a loose - and using the stupid cheap factory supplied bumper plugs. Nothing on the bumper, not even a spare because I already slung it under the belly. Since that experience, I switched over to Camco No Insect RV Bumper Caps, and those babies fit beautifully and don't pop out. You have to pull them out!

Shameful? Yes,.... but that is our (mans) carnal nature. We laugh at others, when we each know that in reality, we are laughing at our selves.... 'We' 'point' at many 'things' and say..... 'see' 'that'.... Ha Ha.... knowing very well that 'we' also were or will be in that same position some time down the road. It is called living and learning and hope not to 'do that again'. Been there and done that.... more than once.

As an example: when I bought my unit, my back slide twice would not go all the way back in.... I did not know what to do.... Twice I drove it back to the dealer with it sticking out about six inches. The 'dealer' really never told me how to 'fix' it. I am sure that I had a few fingers pointing my way going down the road.... I laugh about it now... at the time I was POed...

THIS FORUM showed me there were videos on how to 'fix' the 'problem. The videos showed me where the 'over rides'were and on how to reset the motors... It is funny as heck and a good campfire 'story', but... at the time I thought that the unit I bought was a pile of junk....

Oh... that hose bounces around (yes, I know it does), just like the electric cable when it 'pops' out of the cover.....

Can't count the times I've seen cars and trucks driving around with
gas door open. More than once the cap was also dangling!!
Once saw a lady sitting at the exit of Wallyworld with her cap dangling.
I pulled up behind and jumped out and ran up to her window and yelled
I was going to put her gas cap on.
She looked startled and then appreciative. On retrospect I'm lucky she
didn't shoot me or something!! I didn't think about scaring her until after
the fact

Bottom line is many folks don't check rear view mirrors often or at all.

I've had the electric cord door waving to me already, bugged the crap out of me the whole time even though it didn't hurt anything.

The door and dangling cap don't bother me since I live in the Philly metro and see a dozen or more daily. It's when the PUMP NOZZLE IS STICKING AND AND THE HOSE DRAGGING that concerns me, especially when the young lady driving is too engrossed in her phone conversation!
