Earlier suggestions of the plastic 5" fence post with 4" plastic gutter mounted to the frame are the easiest, least labor intensive "final" solution to the problem.

Not "my" idea, but I like it!

Over 9 years of storing my Walmart purchased sewer hose, in the bumper of our Roo and never had a tear in the hose.

I've always kept the hose in the bumper. 3 trailers over 12 years. Never a problem BUT- I also always use a flat file and de-burr the open end. Often they cut the bumper with a "stone saw" or coarse blade band saw and it leaves a sharp edge which can be either on the outside edge or inside edge of the end. I also believe some square tubing has rough seams inside more than others so your mileage may vary fer sure!
