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!
