for all the tips. I believe I will pin the plug until I can make my own tube/holder to mount underneath.

gregm59 , what brand of ladder do you have that fits in the bumper. That would make it handy to take with you in case you needed a ladder

Here is the link. This one is one sided and if I bought another one, I'd get the step ladder version. It's great to get up high enough to brush off the slide and it's even useful around the house. It's quite sturdy. I got it on sale for around $50.

I go to Wally World and buy a small picture hanging chain cut it put one end on the bumper with a screw and the other end fastened to the cover.
It looks real good. .

I like the retaining clip made out of the welding rod. Its simple and easy to reproduce. I have access to welding rod and will make a couple of them up. I like the E-Z-Hose Carrier. I've seen pumping contractors with PVC pipe with threaded end caps, I'm going to look at some pumping supplies and see if I can make one for less money.

Mount one or two of these E-Z Hose Carrier under your trailer, or where ever. Cap closes securely and is vented for evaporation.

Work great.
Just installed this & it works great.

I also bought a set of hinged bumper plugs & installed those (they run like $4.00), so I can now store my fishing rods in the bumper.

In addition to the easier access from the covers, the mounting hardware prevents them from coming out.

I cut out two 4x4 inch squares of 1/8" plate steel, I then took a holesaw and cut 1.25" holes in the squares for ventilation. I welded a heavy hinge to each square plate end cap. I welded the hinge to the bumper lining up the squares with the bumper ends. I then welded a tab inside the bumber. I cut a slot in the end cap door to mate up with the tab. I then keep them closed with a hitch pin. In the left side of the bumper I welded in a stop so the poop tube can't migrate to the other side of the bumper. The right side I didn't use a hitch pin, I used a cotter pin and bent it up tight. No reason to open that one really.

It turned out awesome and as strange as it sounds I get lots of compliments. Sorry I didn't take any pictures at this time.

Easy fix

Get a small diameter tent spike and drill a hole through the top and bottom of the bumper and plug. Slide the tent spike through the bumper and plug and it's fixed. The tent spike is smaller than a 1/4 inch and has a turn at the top that rests on the top of the bumper.

Actually you can get reusable wire tires from NAPA.
