I didn't know they came off either until my sewer hose was draggin 20 feet behind me! I drilled one small hole through the bumper and into each cap and insert a SS sheet metal screw in it. I still store my dump hose in the bumper.

The WirthCo bumper caps look like a cheap, easy, no-drill solution. I will have to pick up a pair.

Thanks everyone.

Oh, for the people who don't store the hose in your bumper, where do you store it? Seems awful messy to put anywhere else.

Originally I used a pair of rubber maid totes for all of my sewer stuff.

Now I use a pair of vinyl fence posts with rain gutters as pull out trays. I keep them in the bed of my truck. I'll eventually mount them under the camper- but they fit nicely along side of my hitch.

We have owned two different travel trailers and I mad the same mod to both.
I went to the hardware store and bought two 1/4"x6" bolts.
These bolts had about 1-1/2" of threads on them.
I cut them where the threads ended and drill a small hole all the way through about 1/4" from the end.
With the black rubber caps pressed into the ends of the bumper, I drilled a 5/16" hole through the bumper and through the flange of the caps.

The 1/4" pin I made pushes down through both and I stick a little spring pin through the hole so the pin can't fall out.
It has worked perfectly.

One of the previous posts used wire for the pin. I like that idea too.

end-cap skewers

This is low-skill, cheap and simple...

Go to 99-cent store, pick up a set of fondue skewers.
Drill appropriate size holes thru top/bottom bumper and nylon end-caps.
Cut two skewers from the set to 6".
Attach a bungee-wrap to each skewer.
Insert your new "end-cap skewers".

Hey now, your end-caps are secure, and that skewer won't come out and puncture a tire behind you. Now be nice and share the left over skewers from the set with your camping friends, or, well, cook something nice on the pit.

End cap skewers-
What a great simple solution!!
Good photo too.

My -minor- problem is I can't get at my bumper from 2 opposite sides
on one end.
I can drill the back and the bottom but not the top or the front so my
holes are 90 deg apart on that end rather than 180 deg on opposite sides.
On the other end I can drill top and bottom.

I made it work anyway.....

I believe on rough roads the sewer hose actually slides back and forth
inside the bumper and it WILL eventually nudge out the end cap if you
don't secure it somehow.
