    Default water tube/tank?

    i saw lion country supply has a PVC water tube and they want a pretty penny for one. so i was planning on building one. would be nice if some one had some pics of a they mounted the tube to the bed of the truck (non destructive) or ideas of how to mount it. or maybe some ideas even on the tube to make it easier to fill up or fill the water bowl.

    Cabelas has some rubber clamps the are for holding a fire extinguisher that work perfect. They are adjustable for about 4 to 6 or 8 inches. Just use a couple self taping screws and it's installed in seconds. Very simple to take out too if needed. I used 4 inch pvc pipe and installed it just under the top bed rail.

    Several years ago there was an article by Butch Goodwin in Retriever Journal on how to build one a water storage tube using PVC piping. Now if I could only find the issue ......

    thanks I need to look under the bed rail and see what wiring is there. the new 2014 chevys have lights under the bedrails and that is why i was looking for something non destructive.

    I have seen a few mounted that way--also on the front of it between the window and the dog box.
