10-Minute Tech: Come to Grips

End cap on RV bumper for sewer hose

I store the sewer hose for my RV in the rear bumper with the end caps attached. Unfortunately, this made it difficult to get a good grip on the cap when removing the hose. My solution was to drill a small hole into the grip of the cap we use to seal off the hose and attach a cord with a loop in it. Now I just grab the cord and pull.
