Replacing Retractable Fresh Water Hose

My fresh water hose is over 10yrs old and has had “bubbles” in several area over the past few months, possibly due to age, pressure and exposure to the sun. I have removed the “bubbles” thus shorting the hose. It is currently 34’ in length.

I want to replace the hose on the retraction reel but would like suggestions on how to access the reel and hose connection behind the water bay panel.

Right now I have a 3” x 7” opening that the hose is threaded through to retract onto the reel. How does the hose attach? Does it screw on or is it attached with a pressure connection? And, can I access the hose without removing the panel? I’d prefer to do it myself instead of paying $130 an hour at the rv center.

Thanks for any comments and response.

Just pull it out as far as you can, cut it and splice a new one on. A new hose from Glendinning is about $150, not sure about the other brand commonly used.

It's probably one of these if you can find it.

TRC 18306B-SR Flex Tech 40 Foot 1/2 Inch Hose

I got one on ebay last year. Soak it in vinegar/water solution for a day or more to kill the "hose" taste.

I installed a Camco premium drinking water hose, 5/8" x 35'. The hose reel uses a clam shell clamp with 2 screws to clamp the hose onto a tapered hose barb. I had to cut off one end of the new hose and clamp it to the barb. When the hose is sitting exposed to the sun for an extended period, I encase it in pipe insulation to preserve it and prevent the strong plastic taste.

replacing hose

I have changed mine 2x in the last 12 yrs. I cut out the current hole to about 6 x 9 and then screwed a piece of thin plastic to repair the hole. on my 06 knight the hose is 1/2". the reel will hold about 40 feet properly andany more will bind up before fully retracted. mine is held on with a hose clamp. put on the new hose (shortened to about 40') clamp it, test it for leaks and replace the cover you made.
