No, just from the top. I really should try to get you a picture to better show you what I mean.

I lost both of my bumper caps on the way home after taking delivery. I replaced them with the type that pushes in to fit snug and haven't lost any in 2-1/2 years since installing them. Camping World sell a few styles.

The propane cover does stay on pretty well but watch the little lid that some covers have. I lost the lid after the tech forgot to close it and I forgot to check his work. Some of the covers come with better hardware for the lid which helps keep it in place. The differences is small but enough to make a difference. My newest cover lid fits better than the previous cover.

Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...

That would be great if you can. Since you said about putting a nut on it at the beginning I figured it went all the way thru.

Moving Spare tire

I favor the idea of moving the Spare tire, in my case, because the bumper has the spare mounted to the folding rack. which makes the problem even worse AND makes the "fold down" rack unbelievably heavy to let down and up, which you have to do if you expect to use the ladder. The Question then is WHERE to mount the spare and what kind of gizmo to use to make it actually usable.

I would like to get a pully/ratchet mechanism to do this if I could find one that works.

If you dont do something about the (weld bead) on the inside bottom of your bumper square tube,you will have a leaking sewer hose. I dont care if it is a (Rino,WineO,or Valtera) the weld will cut it No Warr.coverage! I lined mine with Vin-soffet mat. On the tank covers make sure the top Lid Hinge is towards the front. Just saying,your choice. Youroo!!

An alternate to storing the sewer hose in the bumper is to make you own storage out of PVC pipe (Sewer Hose Storage - CrossRoads RV Family Forum - Page 1 or 3008 Windjammer sewer line storage? or RV Sewer Hose Storage Tube | ModMyRV) or fence post. All are variations on a theme. I made mine out of fence post and put in a long piece of rain gutter that slides out like a drawer. Gutter ends inside create different sections, one for hose, one for extra fittings, etc. Fits better, holds additional fittings and most importantly, doesn't rust.
