I like it. The cotter pin idea is genius. I would put the spring lid on both ends.

The only thing I didn't want to do is drill the frame.

Wonder if a clamp like this would work. Clamps pinch the frame and one on opposite frame rail would prevent it from coming loose??

Four 5/16 or 3/8 holes won't hurt a thing on the frame. That way it'll be secure and there will be no worries wondering if the clamp deal worked loose. I've had 4 SOB's and my current Silverback ... drilled the frame on all of them for anything from stabilizer jacks, underbelly tire carrier, to the tube I showed. No problems. Take a look at your unit as delivered from the factory ... fastners thru the frame all over.

Ok we now have the stinky slinky storage problem licked....ewwww don't wanna say licked.... Biggest problem was finding 6 inch pvc pipe. Ran it the width of the trailer, but still only enough to put 20 ft of hose in it. The stuff won't accordian down any less. But a little all thread and some nuts and bolts and we got it.

Even the elbow fits although it is kinda snug....
Have to look for an inside cap to the gutter if they make such a thing, cause that 1/16th of an inch just may be all I need for it to slide in without any problems... If not may just take a grinder to it and shave it down a hair. It don't need a lot to just slide in easy......

Just add another one and "voila," you've got storage for 40 ft!

Since I don't use my second hose a whole lot I may find a square fence post and strap it to the top of the rear bumper...

If you don't use the gutter end cap on one end, the gutter can double as a hose support when 'in use'. Just make 2 adjustable stands to get flow angle right.

No end cap on one end is a good idea! I just bought extra gutter for this exact reason. I'm just going to slide it under the gutter pieces that I have now.

As for stands- I just use Lynx blocks to get the angle.
