Sewer hose storage Mod....Done!

I first asked about this back in Sept. of last year. Crusader sewer hose storage?
And I owe a big thank you to everyone who replied. I owe an even bigger thanks to fellow poster GreenImp. He sent me numerous links to exact parts and gave me some very helpful tips.

I finally got around to finishing this project today. I ordered the parts and had everything painted when I just happened to stop by the storage lot for another reason on Friday. Well I happened to notice that I could not bolt the post directly to the I-beams because there was a gas line running down one of them. So back to Home Depot for something for spacer material.

I will say this, I had all of the parts to "hang" the post from the I-beam but GreenImp mentioned that he bolted the post itself to the beams. I decided to go this route and I am very glad that I did. The install looks very clean.

In the first pic you can see the gas line. On the curb side I have the main hose with fittings, on the passenger side of course is the extension piece.

Please don't judge my painting or cutting skills, I am far from a handy man.

Finally did mine!

I didn't want to have to cut into my plastic underbelly to find a frame member to put some screws in. I could have guessed where a good place for screws would be(and drilled into a holding tank!) or just place it on the bumper. So I chose the bumper. Pics attached will show the 15' Rhino hose and attachments and a smaller compartment for a 20' extension hose. The smaller compartment is hardly seen behind the spare tire cover. With a 20' and a 15' hose stored in the bumper and a 15' Rhino hose in the fence post and a 20' extension, I now have 70' of sewer hose I will carry at all times! I'll be good to go!

I only had to trim about an inch on each side of the underbelly. And it is much cleaner than strapping a bunch of pipes to the bumper.

Timex....what did you use for a spacer, at least looks like a spacer between the bumper and the post? And how is it attached? And I assume that allowed you to clear the mounting bracket for the spare tire rack?

The spacer is actually a rubber door stop(to keep the doorknob from hitting the wall) that has an adhesive backing. I knew I needed a little lift to be able to get the caps onto the post and it also aids in helping drainage/ventilation. I drilled several holes in the bottom of the post for ventilation.

Sorry HoustonKid that mine is not as clean looking as yours but it works for me.

My apologies for sounding like a jack A. I was on my phone and did not see what brand RV you had. My simple mind assumed you had a Primetime/Crusader which has the beams exposed for easy mounting.

Hey Houstonkid,
Here is what I did with my hose....I already had a 4" pipe on top of the bumper so got some more pipe and added one below to store the extra hose.
