another sewer hose storage mod

Thought I'd show my final product--for now anyways- Bought two 8' x 5" vinyl fence posts, two 4" metal angle brackets, a couple ft of jack chain, some pins, and small misc hardware. Cut the posts down to 70" and drilled holes to line up with the angle brackets already installed on the bottom of my Sabre. then i bolted through one side of a post, through the brackets and into the other so no hardware is seen after installation. four #10 machine screws holding well for now. I'll keep checking the ones I can easily get to on future trips to see if they are wearing or still holding firm.

Very nice job! I am going to do this if the weather ever breaks here on a couple of days that I am off.

Yeah, cold and snowy, but what the heck. Makes the waiting for the next camping trip not so bad.

Are those sturdy enough to hold a collapsible ladder?

I would say so. I've only towed about 100 miles since adding them, but the seem very sturdy. Id like to get one of those ladders too, but hasn't thought of hauling it in a tube. Hmm, maybe have to add a couple more, accessed from the passenger side though.
How's your screens coming?

I saw a post on RV.net where someone put a collapsible ladder in one. They didn't indicate any issues. And, to be honest - I think it would be fine.

I used brute force as Byron recommended. One is missing a clip, and another was shaved a bit with a Dremmel. So far they are in, we will see if they stay in place.

Yeah, my concern is weight as my ladder is the 7' one and is a little hefty.
