Also, something I just remembered...make sure to put these caps on with the hinge toward the front. That way the wind will be your friend...

Hey, do you guys actually store your hose inside the bumper?? HOW??? I tried to put it in, and with the connector on the end, there was NO way to get it in! I've got a 2011 Roo 21SS that has 4" square tubing as the rear bumper...

Thx

"No way" here too.

I use a tub in the bed of the truck. Airs them out while driving. I have a strap over them to keep them in place.

mine fits in my Roo's bumper. i've heard that some brands don't fit but my Camco kit does fit.
here's a link to what i have:

got mine at Walmart. i have to turn the yellow tab on the clamp, towards the bumper's corner, to get the ends to fit into the bumper.

Some end caps that they sell for the hoses are angled and will not fit inside the square bumper. Try a straight end cap and It will fit perfect.

The cheap hose that came with my starter kit fits perfectly in the bumper if you turn it so that locking clamp is in the corner of bumper.

Now THAT'S a different topic!

Actually, no, I never figured out how to get the hose in the bumper either. No way I'm going to pull out and re-attach all that stuff on every trip! I put the hose and fixtures in a sealed vinyl Tupperware style box which I store in the area where my hitch stuff goes when parked.

There are some threads with photos on here for another option to install a larger size carrier which consists of a vinyl fence post or a larger diameter PVC pipe. If storage for a box is limited, that could be an option to consider.

Now to tell the truth, the REAL reason I put the hinged doors on was to keep out the hornets and wasps.

But the bumper can also be used for storing a few long items like walking sticks, fishing poles, etc. I wouldn't put anything important in there though since there is no way to secure it from thieves.

I store 20' of the dominator sewer hose in my bumper. The hinged type of cap is not ment to have a screw go through the bumper but lock the cap to the bumper. When the screw is put into the bumper it will tear your hose apart.

Camping World sells a cap that you insert first, then 'pop' the middle in...5 years I have not had one come off!
I store my hose in the bumper.
Like the poster above said...wasps LOVE to biuld in there. At the beginning of the season I just spray a shot of wasp killer in each hole...just in case!
