My wet bay is forward of the axle and 25 ft was my average hose length. I carried an extra 25 foot, but only used it once in 10 years, but did use my extra 10 foot a couple of times. I also carry a reeled 50 foot hose i found at Lowe's years ago for washing the MH.

I do it a little differently.

Two 25 footers hooked to a Y connector on both ends so they deliver in parallel. The water pressure in the coach is awesome.

I have 48ft of 5/8 hose on a reel plus a few 25footers. I would rather have 25ft too much than be 1ft too short!

Exactly. Water doesn't mind how far it has to travel

I think you'll find a ten foot hose will work at some sites. However, it's the sites that it won't work at where the problems come in. Carry a 25 footer as well, and if the ten works so be it. If not you can use the 25' or add it to the 10 footer. As for the type of hose, it should be rated for drinking water. Most of those hoses are white

I grew up drinking from red hoses, green hoses, black hoses, etc. I now use only the white ones for the MH.

I carry a 10 and a 25. Depends and the type of camp grounds you use, if the one you are using dosnt have site hookups a longer one is good at least 50 feet, comes in handy a lot, also nice to have and carry a hose splitter, sometimes u need to share a water or if u have dogs, a lot easier filling water bowls. I will pickup another 25 footer.

Drinking Water Hose Length

I carry two 25ft hoses for drinking water-- one standard, and one heavier duty with built in electric heater for winter use.

I also carry a 50ft and a 25ft for utility purposes, and a bag of fittings-- wyes, quick connects, shutoffs, etc.

My rule of thumb...MARK the non potable hose and keep it separate from the potable ones and you will be fine.

👍

Good Luck,
Bill

The only savings with the 10' vs a 25' is initial cost and some storage space.

It takes the same amount of time to hook either size to the spigot.

I carry two 25' and one 50' hose.
