Looking for input/ideas

We bought a thing to hold our sewer hose from Amazon. It is big enough to accommodate the hose and fittings. Hubby attached it to the bumper of the trailer, but we are looking for a better way to attach it.

He had tried nylon ties but they fell apart due to sun damage. Does anyone have any ideas as to how to best fasten this thing to the bumper?

Here are some pictures of how it looks right now:

Are you really stuck on it needing to be on the back bumper?
If not, you could mount it underneath like I did.

I also agree with Lloyd and hide it under the trailer. Many places to connect with plumbers tape.
If you really want to leave it where it is, use the longer stainless steel "hose" clamps.
No need to worry about sun bake.

I agree with Loyd. You can purchase the aluminum bands in a small roll at any hardware store.

I like the underneath idea as well, used that on my old Roo. If you dont want to go that route then:

https://www.lowes.com/pd/Stanley-Nat...-Brace/3169359

Buy 2 that match the width of the mounting feet for your tube, 5 inches? Mount tube to brace, screw brace to bumper from the back.

Thanks for the suggestions! I showed them to Hubby and for some unknown reason he does not want to mount it underneath. The stainless steel clamps look interesting. It's just a case of where to find them.

You should be able to find them at just about any plumbing supply store.
If one isn't big enough to go around the whole thing, put 2 or 3 together.

Use a piece of threaded rod and bend in the shape of a "U" bolt to go under the bumper and through the mounting feet on the hose container.

Here are some pictures of how it looks right now:
I would say the metal hose clamp, or metal zip ties. Amazon has some metal zipties:

or you can try a local hardware store or if there is a heavy machinery (Caterpillar) dealership nearby should have them also. Just make sure you check the length you need before you buy.
