TT came with rubber caps with tips that drop into lower and attach by bendin to upper sides of bumper. Non corrosive scouring pad stops up hole. If I lose the shorter hose so be it, fittings do not match up to hose I purchased. Did like the pin idea posted earlier, seems to be easy fix!

A fence post cap. The closed end has ss screws holding it in place, the working end I have a long pin that goes in from the top and out the bottom to hold it in place

Perhaps 4x4 inch bumpers are NOT created equal. Our Rhino fits just fine. Extension slinky on the other end too. No issues with abrasion.

I've seen dozens of sewer hoses on the side of the road. I drilled a hole in the top of the bumper and through the end cap. I drop a nail into it, and it is secure. I siliconed plastic screen across the hole on the inside to keep the wasps out.

My rhino also fit fine, just can't the connections 45 degrees. I also put a spring pin in the top to keep the caps in.

I have since, since I just cannot leave stuff alone, added a fence post under the rig. Did a write up on it under the mods sections maybe..

I love the fence post and gutter idea. I hadn't thought much about the hose since I'm at my first RV park and won't be leaving for a couple months.
What is a good way to attach it to the trailer? I never knew they put the hoses in bumpers before reading this thread.
