I was told by the dealer that the sewer hose could be stored in the rear bumper on my 177.  True story but only the hose fits - but not with the adapters on each end of the hose!
I am surprised the manufacturer would not accommodate for the adapters and make the bumper slightly larger.  Has anyone made any modifications to deal with the issue?

The 4" bumpers are an RV standard, so I'd blame the hose. I've got the Camco Rhinoflex one, and the only part that doesn't fit in the bumper is the one orange thread adapter - but that easily fits in a large baggie. You'd need about a 6" bumper for it to fit in the bumper.

Not sure why I could not get it to go into the bumper the first time,
but tried it again today and it worked - so my error.

tape up your end caps or put a screw in them, I lost my sewer hose and one end cap someplace between denver and pueblo. lol
