Sent from my Transformer Prime TF201 using Forest River Forums mobile app
the whole trailers are assembled randomly

mine is in there, but it takes some work to make it happen. Never had a problem with the cheaper hoses.

My rhino fits in my Roo bumper just fine as others have posted. You just have to twist end so tabs fit. Love my Rhino!

your right about that. I haven't gone browsing for a fix yet, but its on my "to do" list. PVC sewer drain pipe is MUCH thinner and lighter than supply PVC pipe. Still plenty of fittings to choose from. Maybe our bumpers aren't truly 4" and it will fit in 4" pipe. Need to do some figuring.

obviously not all bumpers are created the same. I will get a measurement on the bumper and see if it falls short of 4". Mine is so tight I'm afraid I will damage it.

Two small hinges pop riveted into place and a toggle latch to hold it shut with a pin through to keep it "locked".

4" PVC didn't work for me. I had some already and just looking at it I thought that it would work.... 1/16th to a 1/8th inch too small... Fold up step ladder will not fit either...

This is how I did mine used rivets to close one end and put hinges and latches on the other to swing open so far they work great being next to the drain makes it easy to load also. I put them on at a 1" drop on closed end and drilled several holes for drainage.

The 5' folding ladder is all I put in our 4" bumper along with a laundry drying board.
