Adding a Rhinoflex

So I purchased a 15ft Rhinoflex last year for our trailer. But often a extension is nice. I like to add the 10ft to give us 25ft when extended in
rare cases. But since I store it in the 8ft bumper I am concern when folded
up will both 15 + 10ft fit in there.

Anyone else doing this already?

My 15' Rhinoflex compacts down to it's length out of the box, for storage. I'm thinking that you could lay the two out, end to end, and measure to see if they'll fit before you try to put them in.
Or if you haven't purchased the 10' measure it in the store before you buy.

I tried to shove two connected fifteen foot Rhinos into my bumper and they just didn't fit. I think a fifteen foot and a ten foot would fit.

I have both the 15' and the 10 ' extension and they will not compact enough in the standard bumper
Been there tried that!
My solution was to purchase a Vinyl 5"x5" x 8' fence pole and two end caps from HD
Bolt it under the frame in a convenient spot.. My new trailer has the sewer connection in front of the wheels. Use a couple of rubber Tarp straps bolted to the sides and end of the end caps Instant storage for the stinky Slinky!
I store the extension in the bumper
The 15' in the Pole and handy for normal use
I intend on getting a hard plastic sleeve for inside the bumper to ensure rust does not poke holes in the extension which I hope not to use very often

We'll I did buy the 15 + 10 ft extension. It fit perfect in my bumper with about 2 inches to spare. No problems with the connectors as long as they are turned to the square truce corners.

I have bought two Rhino flex hoses and had the ends come off both of them after one season. Several other campers have told me the same thing. I bought new ends that twist into the hose since the hose part was fine.

After I make sure the hose (15' and 10') is clean I put them in a 23" x 16" x 16" tall plastic storage bin from Target.

I had one end of mine come off - I learned that they twist on, but in the wrong direction - I had to turn it counter-clockwise to tighten it back on.

Both of mine separated at the swivel part. There was no way to put it back on so I bought new ends that twist into the hose.
