Replace Hose-Carrier Cap or Just Get Rid of the Whole Thing?

Oops! Guess I didn't secure my sewer-hose carrier cap and lost it on my last trip.

I wasn't exactly devastated. I've never used the thing (carry my sewer hose in the storage bumper).

So, I can't see any point in replacing the cap. I may just get the dealer to remove the whole thing at my next appointment. That would give the trailer a more stream-lined bottom.

Someone suggested I replace the cap and use it for "storage." Storage of what? I thought of tools or a fire poker, but they would only get slammed sideways to the end of the tube during transit and how would I get them out?

Has this happened to anyone else? What did you do? Do you think removing the entire thing would be very labour intensive? (Am thinking of cost. A cap may be cheaper.)

The charge about a $100 to put them on.

Many WBCCI flag fanatics store flag poles in them. You should be able to buy a cap cheap and keep your options open for the next buyer.

Lost my first sewer hose when the cap came off of the thing on the highway. I no longer use ours and certainly wouldn't put anything valuable in one (like fishing poles). One of these days when I have nothing better to do, I plan to take off; if it hasn't fallen off in the mean time.
