I can't fit too many plastic tubs in my storage. I use a plastic zipper bag from a newly purchased quilt. I looked in the bumper of my 2016, saw all the rough edges and went a different route for the hose. I might be in trouble if I need a really long hose, but not so far.

Interesting! I've kept our Rhino sewer hose in our bumper for five years without issue. I also have the original sewer hose on the opposite side of the bumper as a back up.

I would recommend cleaning out as much scalely rust as possible. The methods mentioned above will work. Hose out the dirt and grime, let dry. Then treat rust with a rust converter like "Must for Rust" (Lowe's) or Rust Oleum's rust reformer then paint. Mostly because if you paint over rust, all you really get is painted rust. The rust doesn't need painted, the actual metal needs to be painted.

I had good luck like steeljag. I used a Thetford Smarthose for over four years and over 400 nights camping. That's probably at least 150 times that the sewer hose was dragged in and out of the "bumper" and across concrete dump pads. After it developed a leak, I bought another Smarthose. The new one leaked in several places the first time. All of the leaks were at the inside of the pleats, not on the outside where it rubs. I called Thetford and they sent me a replacement.

Number 1 the Tube (Bumper) is welded full length where it butts together,IF installed properly the weld is on the Bottom! There will be (Slag/Rough Weld) full length in this area,to (File/Grind) this area would be a Difficult Job! I used Vinyl Soffit stock and installed across the bottom and up the sides 1pc! Square corners of this install allows MORE room instead of Gutter stock! A break for siding should be used to form the soffit material! Youroo!!

I installed this Lippert under body storage box for my main sewer hose.



Then this D&W Super Slide adjustable tube for the extension. If you just have a single standard hose this is all you will need. I needed the box because I went with the Waste Master system with the large nozzle on the end.



Here is a link to my thread about everything if you're interested.

If they used seamless square tubing then there would not be a problem. A lot more $$$$$ for that!

I added a 5" square vinyl fence post with end caps and fastened it under the belly of my Shamrock to the frame members. I used SS straps from Amazon
Breeze Make-A-Clamp Stainless Steel Hose Clamp System, 1 Kit contains: 8-1/2 ft band, 3 adjustable fasteners, 1 band splice (Pack of 1): Hose Clamp Large: Amazon.com: Industrial & Scientific

along with several long nylon zip ties available from HDepot for just in case the SS clamps let go.

Fairly easy modification to make. The plastic tube sits between the steps and the front wheel and goes from one side to the other. With removable caps on both ends, I can get at the tube from either side. You can see the tube under the frame in this picture.

I like that....looks like that will be on the list of mods for spring.
