Storage for Sewer Hoses

As a new owner of a ST32FR I had a problem as to where to store the hoses. So I came up with an idea to use PVC Fence Post and attach it to my stock bumper.
Take a look at this video and let me know what you think.

Nice video. Thanks for sharing.
I did a similar install some years back, only difference really, was I mounted mine further ahead under the camper.

I like the idea and just may copy it as I still need to come up with storage for my stinky slinky!
One additional step I would take is to drill the end of the bolt for a hairpin cotter. Just additional insurance the wing nut does not depart while traveling. MHO

I made one of those a couple of years ago for the TT I used to have. I epoxied nylon nuts inside the 5" fence post and used thumb screws through the sides of the caps to secure them.

You can see it just in front of the front wheel of the Fun Finder in this picture.

I've been looking for something like that. PVC pipe is too small for the rhino hose ends. Looks like that may work perfect.
Can't wait for the snow to finish melting so I can try and find the RV!

Did the same on my trailer. Added a PVC rain gutter to slide in and out of the storage, so the hose wouldn't wear pulling it in & out.

This was the first mod we made as knew we did not want to use the bumper. And having Rhino hose, we went with the larger post covers - 5x5. We added the rain gutter also because it just keeps things tidier.

You can also use that gutter as a support when dumping.

Boy, some stinky slinkys sure are lucky, with all the tender loving care.

I'm confused. Why don't people just use the rear bumper to store their dump hose? Is this additional PVC tube you guys are taking about to store a second hose?
