Flex hose stowage

Howdy doody boys and girls. I'm finally loading for our first venture out in our 2012 Sp275 and can't wait to commune with nature. Here's the question, while putting the flexible drain hose in the rear bumper I wasn't able to fit the coupling in, is this to be expected or did I buy the wrong thing? I can't believe I'm suppose to clamp the coupling to the hose every time I go to the dump station, the folks behind me better be patient.
Thanks in advance for the help.

Dave

I don't store mine in the bumper. I have a clear, plastic bin that goes in the basement that contains the sewer hose, Flush King, extension sewer hose, extra fittings and water hose for the black tank flush. Take it all out to air dry when I return home.

I'd worry about rusting out the bumper or perforating the sewer hose.

Normally the end coupler has to be turned just so to fit in.
That's the way mine is.

I added 2 8' sections of perforated pvc pipe with screw in caps to the belly of the camper to stow all the sewer hoses in and a bucket for extra fittings in the basement storage area. The rear bumper will "eat" a slinky in from the bouncing around and the rust.

Also added 2 8' pcs of 5" pvc fence post covers with ends to stow another length of sewer hose and a pc of pvc gutter with wooden ends to hold other misc. items. The gutter can be pulled out for both ends for easier access.

Do the same as Dave. But I stow mine in a red plastic container. The kids and their firends now not to get into that one when looking for rafts, toys, etc.

Thanks for all the help. Some great ideas.
As for the plastic bin, I should probably go that route since my family hails from north of the border.

Thanks again

me
