Sewer hose bumper storage

My sewer hose will not fit in the bumper because my connector are the type that are clear and have a slight angle. Anyone have a simple solution, that is other than removing the connector every time I store the hose?

Nope, I just remove the connector and stow it away in a huge zip lock bag when i'm done, after cleaning it and spraying it down with lysol of course..

Throw it in a big plastic bag after cleaning and put in the bed of the PU.
I store my hoses in my Motorhome in a pastic bag in one of my side cargo compartments.

Either purchase a pre-fab tube like this to store your hoses & fittings or build one yourself & attach to bumper as in pic. This way you only handle the hose once & keep all the fluids out of the back of your truck near other cargo...IMO

IMO, bumper storage can lead to rusting inside of the bumper and the roughness can wear holes in your slinky. Discovering that during a dump is nasty.

Currently, I store in the pickup bed, but before our season starts this year I will be adding the 5 inch fence post mod to the camper. There will be two and I plan on storing a folding ladder in the other one.

The only part that will not fit in the tray is the clear elbow I use. I plan on putting it in a 1 gallon Ziplock bag in the basement compartment on the dump side of the camper.

Did you look at the ladder?

"This is GPL's most popular item, with homeowners, RV enthusiasts and the trades. Its light weight, folds to just 3 1/2 inches, by 4 1/2 inches by 87 inches long. The product is made of light weight aluminum with steel parts and replaceable, rubberized anti-skid feet. The product is corrosion resistant, strong and tested to be OSHA compliant for a Type II, 225lb., commercial rating. If you're short on space or just don't like to see a ladder hanging around this is the product for you. It allows the ladder to be stored out of site. It also fits in the 4 1/2 inch by 5 inch standard decorative fence post sold at most hardware stores and lumber yards. This allows mounting on truck lumber racks, inside service vans and also RV's. "
