Looks good! Quick question though and I apologize if it's a dumb one...do people not use the bumper to store sewer hoses anymore? Is this just for additional sewer hose storage? This is a common mod and just trying to understand what I might be missing.

The bumper is now to small to fit hose and fittings.

If you don't mind sharing, what product did you use? I'm assuming it's something any big box hardware store has??

Looks like what I used. 6" vinyl fence post and end caps. I drilled holes in my end cap to let any water left in sewer hose run out and air in to dry.

Most of us use a 5" x 5" fencepost.

Does the 5x5 fence post cover fit the rhino or largest type sewer hose fittings?

Yes the rhino will fit just fine. I have mine in a 4 in PVC gutter which fits nicely inside the 5 x 5 post

Mine looks the same. I got 2 lenghts of the rhino hose in there with the elbow no problem.

"A bear to clean?" I've never "cleaned" mine. I drain the black, drain the grey, throw it in the fence post. Done.

(Of course, this guy is pushing the old ice-cubes-in-the-black-tank" myth, too.

Many folks don't realize it but the Rhino hoses and swivel fittings will in fact, fit in a 4" Sq. bumper. I have 30' in mine with the associated couplers/caps.

You simply turn the fittings so the tabs line up with the corners of the bumper.
