Back to the stinky slinky storage problem...

I know since the engineers who designed the storage bumper for the sewer hose forgot to bring his measuring tape to work that day, I must now become creative. I know most folks use either the fence post or big PVC hose and strap it to the bumper. Has anyone slung it under the trailer by the sewer outlet, and if so how did you do it..??????

There are many examples in this forum on your question, use the search function I am sure you will find what your looking for. Pictures included.

As Batts-toy said, if you search the forum you'll find lots of pictures of what folks have done to mount something under their trailer. If you're going to do this, consider mounting it far enough forward that it won't drag if you have to have the trailer put on a flatbed.

I have lots of room in the bed of my pickup so I just use a large Rubbermaid tote. It fits 2 Rhino sewer hoses plus the accessories and a green water hose that's dedicated for flushing the black tank.

Here's one from a XLR guy. It is a carrier kit from Lowes or HD.

See post #11 here for what I did. The pdf has a couple minor errors in it, but you'll get the idea.

The pic is when it was on my Roo. It's now on my Mini-Lite.

How do YOO, like your ROO ?

This carries my outside rug, but could easily carry your hose. I had a couple of aluminum bands rolled and got a couple of blocks of aluminum for frame mounts. I used 6" PVC

Yes, I did try the search function and tried various wording and never found anything. I figured there had to be something on here bout it. Guess what I really needed to know is what folks are using for brackets to attach the fence post or PVC to the trailer and what they attached to..... Guess what I need to do is go to Lowe's for an afternoon and nose around and see what I can adapt. Doc73 had some good ideas too, like the spring setup...

Brackets can be formed from 1" wide flat-bar, thin stuff. just depends on what you use for the tube...round pvc ic heavy compared to the fence post cover. Use self-tapping 1/4 bolts with hex-heads and screw into frame ....pre-drill the frame a little smaller that the bolt size you select. Posts, if they have 'em will be in the garden center area and pvc will be in the plumb'n section
