sewer hose storage

Currently I have my sewer hose stored in a plastic container with a lid. The hose is new and has not been used yet. The box takes up considerable room in my windjammer and I could use the room for other things. Also after the hose is used and washed I think I would feel better if it were not stored under the dinette. I like the PVC fence pole covering that people are using for the hose storage. My TT under carriage is closed off, so it will have to be mounted on the rear bumper, will those heavy duty plastic ties hold so it won't be lost on the road ? There have been several posts covering this topic I have seen them mounted under the TT, but can't quite make out how they are attached to the rear bumper. Thanks in advance Chuck in Va

Possibly large cable ties would be OK but I would go with square U bolts instead available at hardware stores.

Store 2 in the round tubes by the dump and 2 under the back bumper. Tubes are strapped and bolted to the frame and the 2 under the back bumper are on a 1/2" threaded rod with a cross bar under them.

I just completed adding a 5" PVC fence post with a gutter inside for our sewer hose. I ended up mounting just in front of my front scissor jacks with 7" worm-drive pipe clamps. I was able to find two pieces of metal that were connected to the frame that I was able to strap on to.

I wasn't able to fit the post on top of the bumper because it would have gotten in the way of access to the water heater, and putting below I was afraid of bottoming out with it. The trailer is at storage this week, but will get pictures this weekend.

At one point on my last 5er I had the fence post attached to the rear bumper with several zip ties and had no problems on a 600 mile trip.
After I got back from that trip I ended up using something like what Fonzie posted to hold it in place.

I just pulled of the plastic end caps on my rear bumper and store it in there. Out of the way, and not to difficult to retrieve.

I use the bumper space for the rear laundry hanger assembly...so the 5"PVC works out great for both sewer hose and portable grey tank hoses and fittings ,)

Trouble with using the bumper to store the hose is that it will rust, it will rust if you don't store the hose there. Need to "swab" it out with a giant cleaning rod/wire. A rag sprayed with some water proof lube (Boeshield T9) will do wonders. Storing the plastic hose in a plastic pipe makes all kinds of sense. Metal tube will grind away at the hose causing leaks. IMO.

Thanks for the reply's, I believe the fence post cover will suit my needs. The fence post pvc cover at Lowes about $20.00. Still looking for the long u bolts to bolt it to the rear bumper, lowes didn't have anything that large. I will check some local hardware stores. Thanks again for the responses.
