Bumper - Sewer Hose

Does anybody know what brand sewer hose will fit in the 4” bumper? My Rhinoflex hoses do not fit; the head of the bolts Winnie uses to fasten the bumper to the frame get in the way. The bolt heads are inside the bumper.

You might want to forget the bumper and get one of these:

I never had an issue with getting my hose to fit in a bumper, but I always kept losing end caps. I now have the hose carrier that BobC listed, best thing to date to carry a hose and allows me to carry 20ft of hose without issue since the end caps lock.

That looks like a nice solution. Does it mount to the top of the existing square bumper?

I suppose either would work but I believe most mount it under the body, bolting it to the frame, as long as it doesn't extend lower than your jacks or other low point. I have one but haven't installed it yet.

I bought the sewer hose storage unit Bob suggested. I like it, but the mounting holes are wider than my 2021 22M. I’m thinking of making some large U-bolts with a plate on the bottom of the bumper to attach it. I was also thinking of getting some 6” bolts and use the existing mounting bracket. But since it’s plastic, that may not be a good idea.

Is your's returnable. The one I bought is adjustable as are many others:

It doesn't say on Amazon but the manufacturer's site lists it as adjustable from 50" to 94".

Years ago Winnebago welded the bumper on, then switched to bolts with nuts. Most brands will not fit in the bumper. However the PrestoFit does fit in the bumper. I hqve 20 feet in my bumper.

Mine is adjustable. My issue is I wanted to mount it on top of the bumper. The bumper is 4” wide, but the spread on the mounting bracket that’s part of the storage unit is 6”.

Just screw some flat plates of the appropriate size to the top of the bumper then screw the carrier on. Or use giant zip ties like the HVAC ones if you don't want to put screws in your bumper.

I put my carrier underneath with the end right by the dump valve, I just drag it out and hook it up, makes it quick and easy.

Those are 2 great ideas BigB. I like the zip tie one. I’ll crawl under my unit to see if there’s a convenient spot to locate it there as well.
