My sewer hose mod

I know, I copied some from here, but I've wanted to do this mod for a while now, so today I did. It is the 5" post that some of you have done with the caps. I am not happy with the bungee cord on the caps, but I had to order the spring snaps and I was too impatient to wait. I had to put a 1" tubing above my posts due to my left side having the propane line running down it. Here is the 99% completed project.

Looks great Golf! I did the same except I couldn't find the end caps anywhere. Ended up making caps out of some aluminum stock. Not entirely thrilled with the way they turned out, but they work. As for the gas line, I just let them rest up next to it on the left side, and put the right side next to the frame. Figured that would give it a little slope to let any water run out.

Nice job, I really need to get off my duff and do a mod like this since my rhino hose doesn't fit in the FR provided hose storage on my Vengeance.

I did the mod last year, but they haven't been installed yet. At 8', they fit perfectly in the back of the truck along side of the hitch. Because they fit so nice, it's really killed my gumption to mount 'em!

My DH fabbed these to go over our bumper but said since ours only holds two lengths of hose that he may copy your idea, if you don't mind!

Nope, I don't mind at all. I stole the idea from someone here! I have two sections of hose in the same tube. The other tube holds 5" plastic rain gutter that I use at places like the beach when the CG sewer hook ups are out of the ground a bit. Like this



Plus, if I needed more sections of hose for any reason, the front tube(gutters) will still hold more of the cheap hose.

That's a real engineering feat! Kinda like working for Public Sanitation. All kidding aside, That has to be the cleanest sewer contraption install I have ever seen. I'm gonna steal that idea too if ya don't mind. Nice Yob Mon
