Previous truck kept it in the rail mounted bed box on a shelf with easy access. Current truck has a floor mounted bed box so it goes in a storage well under the back seat which is always up anyway for the dogs. If you want to keep it in the storage compartment in the trailer wrap it with a couple pieces of Velcro and place corresponding pieces on the sidewall next to the door in a vertical position so it will be easy to find.

On all our previous travel trailers, I've installed a pc of 5/8" rebar or 1/2" emt to one of the bolts holding the tongue jack on and simply slide the break over bar on the rod or emt. Never lost one in over 30 yrs of using trailers with wdh.
They are always handy and right where you need them. I've seen some folks just mount a couple of broom holders to do the same thing.

A 3/4" black pipe or galvanized, 18" to 24" found at Lowes or Home Depot will work perfectly. Just make sure it's a piece of steel pipe not conduit for strength.

I found it!! I was in the compartment and rolled to the front under the door, I didnt see it. Thought I was going crazy as I remember putting it away.

Thanks for all the great ideas! Love this forum

I have to point this out from my earlier posting:

Glad you found it, sounds like right where I suggested
