I use the bumper for hose storage and keep the elbow in a plastic container. My plan is to add a 5X5 fence post mod to keep excess water, etc out of the bumper.

I have to ask as this is a future mod... where is the gutter coming from. Our HD and Lowe's carries gutter but it is fancy non symmetric stuff ie fancy on one side, square on the other. Thanks.

I got mine at the local Lowes. It is the "Genova" brand 4 1/2" "Raingo" gutter. Here is a link... Shop Genova 4-1/2-in White Vinyl Raingo 10-ft Vinyl Gutter at Lowes.com

Thanks. Guess I must have missed it.

We have a clear plastic tote that we store ours in, then we just put it in the luggage compartment next to the water bay.

I cut out my factory fitted sewer hose storage tube a couple of weeks ago and replaced it with the 5" x 5" vinyl fence post mod that many others on the forum have completed. All sealed behind the original sewer hose hatch on the 38fl.

Ditto.

I used to keep it in a plastic bag but finally found a big enough plastic container that would fit through the small storage door too. I do place the end caps on the hose first but I'm going to try connecting the ends together next time.

All my sewer connections are stored in a plastic snap lid container then slid into the basement.

I also store the Rhino in a tote in the basement, I take extra care to make sure nothing but clear water runs out before I put it away.

I carry a box of disposable rubber gloves for hooking, unhooking and cleaning the hose.

I started hanging the hose over the back fence so it could air dry before winter.

Checked this mod off the list yesterday. Removed the (too short) round tube that came with it and installed 6 feet of 5x5 vinyl post with a vinyl gutter slide out tray.
