I went even simpler than this but same idea: I just took some coat hanger wire and made a loop that hung on the side portion of the tongues. Slip the bars into the wire hoop and rest the other end on the L bracket. Doesn't get grease on anything else.

Pretty much my theory as well. The diameter of the PVC is just large enough for the straight portion of the bar with the chain attached. The angled end just hangs outside, thus getting grease on nothing.

Old post I know, but have been away for a while and browsing.

I screwed some light chain to the aluminum frame on the top of my pass thru storage and slide the bars in that, the key to keeping everything clean though is I have some old, small canvas bags with drawstrings and they fit just right over the greased ends. Some kind of rubber or vinyl sleeve or sock would work the same.

I just put an old pair of socks over the greasy part. The bend for the heel is just right, and there is always a ready supply of them at our house.

I used a 3' section of plastic downspout with 2 matching brackets screwed to the metal framing in the front storage area. I put a screw into the downspout at bracket locations, so it does not slide around when storing arms. You will need to position downspout so the arms can be inserted without interferring with outside door. You will need a helper on this one, and be flexable to crawl inside for the mounting. I am using the Equalizer, which does not have any chains.

Interesting set-up I really like the thoughts behind it and how it keeps
all the 'Necessary stuff" right where you wold be when setting-up or breaking camp. I do, however, have a few questions.

* Do you have any venting for the battery? If not , why not?

* Is the plug wired to anything or is it for storage as well (the TV to TT cable
at bottom Left of photo)?

No. I do not have venting for the battery but do plan to add a small vent in the back this spring before I re install the battery. Haven't had a problem so far though. The plug in the front is not wired to anything. Its purpose was only to keep the plug out of the dirt. After reading about putting a jumper wire in to turn on the running lights , that may be in the future plans as well.
