Underbelly work

How do you mount a plastic fence post to store sewer hose under geo pro without hitting wires or plumbing?

I don't have a Geo, but here's what I did. I got a couple of top beam clamps and attached them to the flange on my frame.

Clamp has a threaded hole into which I ran a long threaded rod. Then under the posts, I put a strip of slotted metal bar. I put Locktite on everything to keep it in place. I've now got 15k miles and 2 years on my installation. No problems. Sorry, I don't have a pic of the install.

I painted all the metal with Rustoleum.

Your second link is not working. Here's the correct one.

Not sure if the GeoPro has a rear bumper, but I strapped my 5" fence post under my rear bumper with SS hose clamps... long ones double up. I would have put it on top of the bumper, but I would have blocked my rear storage access.

I used plumbing strap and self tapping screws. That was on a trailer without an insulated underbelly, but you could something like it with the insulated underbelly, if you know where the crossbeams are. Screw directly up into them.

I used a "U" shaped bracket I got from HD and used self tapping screws to mount it to the flange of the TT frame (I know some frown on this but FR but dozens in - I just added 4 more). Here's the best pic I currently have showing the bracket and the cap.
