I use a bolt with a lock nut to keep in bumper. Wrenches needed, but not a big deal. 20 'on one side , 10' 0n the other. Will take years to rust through. Never had an issue will wasps or bugs.

Don't have a bumper. I installed two 5"x5" cross beam tubes [Home Depot fence post] to store my sewer hoses. Bought gutter down spouts and split them in half to make slides to go inside each tube. With endcaps, I spent about $35.

I was looking a the 5" vinyl fence post. What's 5X5 cross beam tube?
Thanks

Some toy haulers don't have the bumper storage. The hose storage that came on my 2016 320A SS is actually hard to reach. They put it so far under the camper so I need to make a new one as well for mine. Plus the one that came stock won't fit the Rhino fittings.

Here is a good tip on securing the cap. Securing the Bumper Cap - Sunline Coach Owner's Club I'm not going to bother with chain but will use the pin made from a coat hanger on mine.

Thanks in advance!
OK, we have . Bottom line, if your hose will fit in your bumper, use it and check your caps at each stop. If they tend to get loose use one of the methods described to keep em on...

I drilled a hole in the bumper and cap and put a nail in it to hold the cap in place and not loose it.
