I've carried my hoses for years in the bumper never lost one and never had one leak. Yes I buy new ones every so often as nothing will last forever. Bought new end caps guaranteed to not fall out. Had them in for a year now still there. Later RJD

I secured my cap ends with a metal leash, and stuffed the caps with brillo pad to keep out critters. If it rusts, oh well, c'est la guerre.

Exact same reason for me. The Rhino doesn't fit in a 4x4 bumper, but it does in a 5x5 fence post.

Yes, I could have just put it in a tote instead, but space is limited in a TT so this also frees up storage for other things, like the power cable, fresh water hose, etc...

Thumbs up

I use the bumper to store my fold-able ladder. Fits perfect in the bumper.

Something I have done to get my Rhino hose to fit in the 4X4 bumper is grind a 1/4 " off the four tabs at the hose connections , this allows it to fit in bumper.

[QUOTE=cbvp;1161771]You'll understand why :

#1 when you see RUST coming out both ends of your metal bumper.

#2 The hose sliding on the metal rubs through and your dump hose leaks.


Never seen it as much of a problem. After several years of bumper storage very, very little rust noted.

Best to use a wrap or two of elect tape so as to keep the end caps in place.

I've used my bumper to store my sewer hose for five years without issue. No, the elbow does not fit, I just leave that in a plastic bag in the truck bed.

I have however witnessesd a sewer hose or two, along a roadway which I assume may have wiggled out of a bumper ?

No rust issues or holes in my sewer hose from bumper storage!
