Sewer hose may not fit in bumper

I just bought two sewer hoses that probably will not fit in my bumper. Some reviews indicate that there are tabs that prevent that. I possibly could mutilate the tabs but I am thinking of storing them in my limited space. They collapse to a two foot length each.

I will probably have enough tools, sewer products and other essentials to justify having a plastic bin in a space that I have. I am thinking of keeping the hoses in a garbage bag. I could also get some pvc sewer pipe with caps to put them in.

I wouldn't keep the stinky slinky in the same bin with tools even in a trash bag. There will still be moisture to start rust plus it would gross me out if the bag tore which it will eventually. Usually the tabs will align and fit in the bumper but if it doesn't another trick is to buy a piece of PVC pipe that the hose will fit in and the associated fitting to cap the ends and mount that to the top of the bumper. I've seen that a lot. It looks easy to do. I have my hose in a separate rubber maid tote and put away separate from everything else.

On our former Class C I stowed the sewer hose, elbow, rubber donut, 5-inch clear section, hose rinse cap, Valterra Flush King and a rubber strap wrench in a plastic tote that fit into a lower compartment. That compartment also held the spare sewer hose (capped), the fresh and dirty water hoses, the 90-degree elbow for the fresh water inlet and other miscellaneous small items.

I use the same tote for our current Class A. NOTE: The 15-foot sewer hose is about four feet long when collapsed, so it must be bent to fit inside the tote.

The bumper in our Class C was not designed to hold sewer hoses. From what I've read (including a post made on another of your threads), even if the sewer hose fittings fit inside the bumper on your coach the rust prematurely ruins the hoses- and the bumper, too, I suspect.

There are a number of clever sewer hose storage designs around the Web, if you'd rather not, or can't, put them in a tote/compartment. I'd think that at two feet each you'd not need something too sophisticated, though.
