I put this on to hold the hose I use when Iím hooked up and I use the bumper for my dump station hose.

1- take a file and deburr each end of the bumper tube, there were some nasty and sharp burrs from the cutoff saw.
2- take an angle grinder with a sanding disc and give each flat on the Stinky Slinky fittings a kiss, it doesnt take much. By hitting each flat equally your not compromising the strength of the fitting.
Were you using the Campco Rhino Flex hose?

Yes we are, I just took about a 1/16" off of each flat and it gave adequate clearance.

Biggest thing though is to deburr the cut ends of the bumper, they were nasty on ours.

I know I could buy some PVC and make a storage container but just not crazy about that idea and don't know why they wouldn't include a bumper that can store a decent sewer hose.

Does anyone have suggestions on a decent quality sewer hose that fits the standard ORV bumper? The inside diameter of my bumper is 3.75".
I found that the Rhino hoses come in two different models. The Rhinoflex ones seem to fit in the bumper but the Rhinoextreme have fittings that need to be knocked down a little on each side to slide in better. Look inside the the bumper and see if there is some slag that is causing it to bind. Mine catches a tiny bit but with a slight push fits in.

Here is my solution, two Valterra sewer hose holders. I keep a third sewer hose in the bumper, but it is a lousy cheap one.

Here's the same idea but with the addition of some rain gutter for a slide. It worked great!



The fence post was supported using some angle iron welded to 2" steel tubing. It fit into the trailer hitch receiver on the truck. I used this when I had a truck camper.

The sewer hoses shown in the picture now reside inside the stock bumper on my 26RLS. They fit without issues, even with the end storage caps, though the fit is close. I think this is a 20' Camco Revolution kit which came with two sections of hose, and an elbow (which I keep in the pass through). I bought it more than 5 years ago.

We have the Valterra Dominator hose set and they also will not easily slide into the bumper storage. If both are connected they absolutely will not go in, as the lugs are slightly spread, so this means they can't be drawn out together and one is always way too far in to reach, necessitating a pole from the other end to push it.
Just a 1/4" larger and we all wouldn't be dealing with this.
