EZ Coil water hoses?

I'm seeing more and more EZ Coil water hoses instead of the white hoses connected to RV's. You know, those colorful hoses that look easy to store?

I'm wondering what the water pressure in your coaches is like? Can you tell the difference? Pro's and con's ? Brands? Thinking of getting one for the ease, looking for input. Thanks !

Just be sure it's safe for drinking water!

EZ Coil-n-Stow Drinking Water Hose is safe for potable water. EZ Coil-N-Store Drinking Water Hose - Valterra W01-0022 - Hoses, Reels & Fittings - Camping World

I also wonder about it's capacity since it looks to be about a 3/8" interior diameter hose. I also wonder about how far it can stretch, and it's 'tripping' factor since it won't lay flat on the ground, and how easy it would be to stow a plastic coiled up cylinder of hose compared to a flat coil of regular 'white' hose.
If you Google EZ Coil water hose you also come up with a EZ Coil air/water hose and reel that is not rated for drinking water. http://www.amazon.com/Coxreels-EZ-Co.../dp/B002FHRFVI

We use one. Water pressure is fine as is volume. Ours, which is white, extends to 25' when stretched.

I too would be concerned about the "trip" factor!

I love mine. I have a 3' white hose on the end with a pressure regulator between the the white hose and the blue coiled hose. The white hose attaches to the hose bibb.

Since the blue hose comes with quick-disconnects, I attached one end to the coach so the only screw connection is at the bibb. I keep a 2nd 25' coil just in case the water supply is not located nearby. Everything just drops in a 5 gallon bucket from Lowes -- no fuss, no muss, no manual hose coiling.

My sewer and water are in the same compartment so the water hose and sewer line are in the same general vicinity. Never been a trip hazard as water hose is no higher off the ground than sewer line.

Only use one for my tornado valve for when dumping the black tank...stays out of way as it is not bulky and not something that needs to be coiled - love it.

I don't think the issue is safe drinking water from a hose. I to grew up drinking from a garden hose on on the farm. I think the issue is water that sets in the hose while at a CG site hooked the there system. In non potable safe hose things start to grow in the hose that you don't want in your MH water system. I fill my fresh tank at home with standard hose because of distance but water never sets in day after day. Just my thought!

Joe and Annette (MSHappyCampers) were correct in questioning if it was safe for drinking.

Bob-I don't see enough responses to make the switch. I keep mu water pressure at about 60-65 PSI. I would like to keep it there, but I have not seen anyone that had both that can compare their experience them for us.

Sorry about that last post, I didn't preview it before I posted. That won't happen again.
