How is everyone carrying there Sewer Hose. I use to carry it in the bumper but on the new 5er the Rinoflex will not fit. I know, a crappy question.

Used to carry my hose in pvc pipe mounted under the bumper of my previous fifth wheel, but with no back bumper on my new Cedar Creek we carry it in a plastic tub with the ends capped off and a snap on cover on it,

I made an underbody tube for my sewer hose out of 5" square vinyl fence post covers (Home Depot), and another for a throw-rug and my awning bows. This allows me to store a small folding step-ladder, from CW, in my bumper tube.

Though ours will fit in the bumper, we don't use it for that. We carry our walking sticks and foam pool floaty things in the bumper and use a Rubbermaid storage tote(think it's 10 gallon) to carry the sewer hoses, all connectors, both sewer slinkies, and the black hose to flush the black tank. This way we can keep the sewer hoses connected after cleaning to prevent dripping and keep a lid on the entire lot of sewer accessories. Then, I just put the whole container in the back of the truck, closest to the tailgate since it's usually the first thing off the truck, and the last thing on once we leave the dump station area.

2-8' pcs of 4" pvc drainage tubes with adaptors to accept the screw in plugs. Have screw in plugs in both ends of both tubes. Had to drill the holes in the plugs. I used 1-1/2" alum. strap formed and screwed to the bottom frame flange. 2 person job unless you have jack stands to hold one end while attaching the other. I also mounted 2 pcs of 5" square vinyl post covers 8' long with ends underneath the very end of the frame for other misc items. One of the sq. tubes contains a pc of pvc rain gutter with wooden ends that slides out for more sewer hoses, connectors, etc. The other sq tube contains the awning shade screen and other items.
