Not sure if this link will work, but it's a post showing our solution. Ok it's my wife has nothing to do with it.

I replaced the sewer storage tube with a 5"x5" Pvc fence post that holds two sewer hoses with the fittings attached.

Do you put the hose in a container or just inside the rear bumper?

Due to the fact these hoses compress tightly for storage, and stay compressed unlike a normal slinky hose, we can also fit 10' and 5' extension sections in the bumper as well. The extensions allow us to tailor the length of the hose to the requirements of the campsite. Wearing disposable gloves I don't find handling the hoses objectionable and the large opening of the bumper makes storing and retrieving the right hoses for the particular campsite easy.

The Rhinoflex will not fit in the underneath storage tube with the fittings attached. The prior owner of my Airstream stored his Rhinoflex in the underneath storage tube and his fittings in the bumper compartment. I don't want to install fittings when we arrive at a site, and take off the fittings when we leave, so I prefer to just store the hose with the fittings in the bumper storage compartment.

Electrical cords, water hoses, spare parts, and lego blocks for leveling go in the storage compartment behind the gas bottles along with a clean new Rhinoflex 15' spare in its box stored away in the event of a leak. Anything else goes in the back of the pickup.

I keep mine in a large plastic tote with a lid. I put it up clean and hove end caps on the fittings to keep any residual
water from leaking out. The plastic tote stays in the den for travel, then goes outside once at the camp.

We keep our main hose in the bumper, cleaning it out and draining it as much as possible beforehand. The bumper isn't exactly dry storage, so we don't put much else in there. We also have an extension hose that fits in the storage tube under the trailer. We pull that one out only if we need it.

I put in a second hose storage tube large enough to fit the hose and fittings, then carry an extension in the stock tube. There is one mfr making a product with a large diameter.

This opens up the rear bumper to carry many things you might not want in there with the sewer hose.
