But not all do.

That Rhino hose you have is probably one of the most popular.
Are you sure the hose is completely collapsed?
If not, the way to get it to collapse all the way is to take one of the caps off so the air can escape as it collapses. Then when fully collapsed, put the cap back on.

Also, quite a few people don't even use that "square" bumper for the hose.
There are several better options for storing that hose.

On my previous travel trailer, I added the Valterra hose holder.
Our current 5th wheel came with it from the factory.

The square hose bumper are usually smaller than they should be.
The Rhino hose goes in but then hangs on the lugs, right?

File or cut them down.

I would still get a sewer hose tube snd mount underneath. Extra sewer hose length is always a smart move when traveling far from home.

I have already purchased the
Valterra A04-5094BK RV Adjustable EZ Hose Carrier with Lockable Door Cap, Black

Also have a rear tire mount with U brackets. I am hoping that based upon the picture that the end supports,where I assume you attach to the bumper and seem lower than the body of the tube will clear the U Brackets.



It is still in the box, other things in the way, but also almost afraid to open it..LOL


Thank you for your input,

Kevin

That is a big fat NO!

Would not even mount to the existing bumper (part of bumper is under the trailer).



Looked underneath and while there is ONE place I could put brackets across.


Going to have to an L bracket to bring it down some in order to clear the ridged water hose to bathroom.


Just do NOT want to add any LOWER to the undercarriage.

I fashioned brackets outlet flat steel strap. The fence post holds it all, hoses, and elbows.

Thank you for the response.



I think I have found a place further up front that would mount directly to the frame.



I just have to again take it out of the box and see if the length works. I do not mind if it does not come out flush or somewhere thereabouts. So long as I get put the hoses somewhere, I will be doing the Snoopy dance.



Thanks again.

I have found a place to mount it. (2) 2" frame pieces 66" apart that run down the middle of the trailer. Each beam is 13 1/2" from the body edge.

It is about 1' in front of the single axle tires. Behind the tires is a not a possibility because of Black water tank and gray/black water valves.


From the pictures that you have posted about your approaches, it appears that most all are mounted with the cover, more or less, flush with the body of the trailer. Is that about standard?

I suppose it is access convenience and having it at the edge of the body feeding the sewer hose in would be the way to go.

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
Kevin

P.S. That guy with the tray is just pure Genius!

It is installed..Thank the Lord..


In case those that are wondering, the gap between the outside of trailer and the sewer carrier is nothing more than, I had to mount it to the frame and it is what it is, much to my dismay.



Self drilling screws..My @#$%. On my back by myself and 3 snapped drill bits later...



I am now contemplating buying some PVC and cutting in 1/2 as I feel I have enough room and that it would act like a slide.


As they say, Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery!


Thanks to all that contributed, I sincerely appreciate it!

Ha ha! My very first experience of when my drill "just didn't work at all for me" was when I had to replace a scissor stabilizer on my old rig with a different brand and needed to drill mounting holes in different places on the beams. Bewilderment!
