Waste Hose Storage...

When I had an older Sunline camper I made a waster hose storage out of PVC pipe. I can't remember how I did it and I can't seem to find anything on here on it.

The camper I just purchase has been on a yearly site so the hose was never stored in the rear bumper and I don't want to start now. It's nice and clean and new looking.

Does anyone know the specs to make one? I know I used 3" PVC I think but can't remember about the end caps and how I mounted it to the bumper. It's been nearly 15 years...

Most of the new waste hoses are bigger around (particularly the fittings) to fit into
the rear trailer bumper. I just store mine in a plastic storage box in the bed of my
truck when traveling.

I bought the rhino hose kit for our new travel trailer and it won't fit in the bumper storage. I put the hose in the storage and the ends in plastic bags that go in one of my storage tubs. I'd rather do something else but haven't figured out just what.

I have read where others have used a Vinyl Square post from HD or Lowes I think 5 inch is big enough Then a couple of pieces of vinyl eaves trough as a slide out or holder
Personally I use the bumper on my jayco and have the rino hose
Just used a file or dremel and removed two of the extruded tabs and it fits fine in the bumper
With the rino hose you get caps for the ends of the hose so there are no leaks out of the hose into the bumper

X2, except I use a heavy duty plastic bag. Never liked the idea of removing fittings in order to use the bumper. You still have "dirty" fittings to deal with.
