While the hose is the same diameter the couplings are way larger, and it included caps so the nasty stays inside - no smells.
That's a good thought about the hose(s) being wet--I usually try to drape the hose over the spare tire after I use it and before I pull out of the site so it dries out before I put it back in the bumper. Probably would be a good idea to hose out the bumper once in a while and let it drain and dry completely. The RF hose does fit into the typical square TT bumper, you just have to rotate it a little so the locking "ears" are at the corners. That said, if I didn't have a bumper that the hose fit into, I'd probably be on my way to Lowes or Home Depot for some large length and diameter PVC, mounting straps, and a screw-on end cap. Good luck!

Thank you Mark and Linda for the link to Camping World. That is what I used to go by when I made my own. I already had the pvc from another project and put a threaded flange on one end and hardware cloth (wire) on the opposite end. It has worked for the past 5 years and should last many more after I install it on the new TH.

I have often read about the inside of the bumpers rusting and causing holes to form in the stinky slinky. This is what prompted me with my last TT to make something different.

My thoughts on storing in the bumper is like many others. Plus if the hose isn't cleaned good before storing you also help contribute to the rusting process. Worked around aircraft many years and a major area of corrosion was around the lavatory areas.

I have seen another mod where a plastic fence post was used with two caps, hinges and fasteners.

My rhino flex does not fit in the bumper so it's not a solution for everyone....

This is an easy one. The 27hfs doesn't have a bumper or a place to store it. You can add some sort of external storage or get a tote. I store mine in a tote in the generator area and keep my fresh water hose on the other side.

Now that I like! What size post and gutter is it, and what did you use to attach it to the TT? Finally where is it located in reference to the wheels? I have seen those done before, but am a bit worried about dragging it.

Use 5" square fence post cover and a pc of 4" gutter. Fence post covers attached with a bar suspended from a 1/2" threaded rod on rear of the frame. The round 4-1/2" tubes were attached with "U" straps to the bottom of the frame right in front of the wheels.

There is no back bumper on a 27hfs to attach to. Anyone got picks on how they attached it to a 27hfs?
