27VRL brackets under rear bumper

Does anyone know what these mounting points under the back bumper of my Super V 27VRL?

We have the same thing on our 27rlws. Not sure what for? Wondered if I could use them for a bike rack or trailer hitch receiver.

The brackets are for mounting the standard rear stabilizer jacks if your TT doesn't have the optional power stab jacks.

IMO, the power stabilizers are too far from the axles, I'm getting ready to move mine inward not further out - you don't walk against the rear wall but you do between the tires and about halfway to the rear wall; Ever notice the locations of jacks on the newer 5th wheelers, right next to the tires..

You know, I have 27VRL as well, and was just looking at those mounts yesterday scratching my head.

They are welded securely to the frame. So, in theory, you could probably fab up a bike rack or something to make use of those mounts.

As for rocking. I put the strong arm bars on both front and rear power stabs. Made a world of difference. Coupled with X wheel locks and a couple scissor jacks mid frame we get no bounce or rocking.

Looks like the bumper has more "meat" attached to the frame than the brackets

Bumper on mine has some crappy looking welds about 1/3 as long as they should be with poor penetration.

Stevedfive. I really like the tubes mounted near your rear bumper. Care to divulge how (and with what) you mounted these? Nice !

The are the Valterra 50"-94" Adjustable Sewer Hose Carriers. I just used one existing hole in each side of the frame and then drilled the second hole to match the carrier mount. I decided to add a second tube so I used some 1" aluminum "L" angle x 14" long to mount the second one. I think I used 1" and 1 1/2" x 3/8" bolts and lock watchers. If you need anything just let me know. I bought the L angle at Home Depot.

I have the manual stabilizers and mounted a pair of the Sani-tube Super Slider (about the same thing) on the mounts where the electric stabilizers went. By fabricating a slightly longer plate for mounting, one of them holds a few 6 1/2' fishing rods.

Stevedfive. Thanks for the info. One additional question. Will these Valletta hose carrier accommodate your regular sewer hose while leaving the connector end intact....or will I need to remove the ends each time before storing hose? Thanks.

Yes. It will hold all the ends except for the big elbow end.
