Water hose reel

We are picking up our 2011 Mountain Aire on Friday it did not come with a hose reel. I called Newmar and their's is $1079 ouch. I found this online and wanted to know if anybody had used one or has another solution.

Aqua Roundup

Thanks,

Troy

Troy, the idea looks good, but I don't see, and can't tell if the hose is hooked up to the water intake. If's it's not then it is just something that rolls up the hose. It also looks like it is one of those hoses advertised on TV that collapses when you take the water pressure off it. I don't see the advantage of this other then just being a convenient way to store the hose. JMO

Kind of what I was thinking as well. Too good to be true.

Another thing to think about, the flat hose requires complete unreeling before you can use it. Leaving it partially rolled up will pinch off the hose and not allow water to flow. Also, I've heard a lot of stories about the connectors on those not working very well.

It does look like it saves a lot of space compared to a typical hose reel that uses the standard type white hose.

Hi Troy, I can believe that A 2011 Mountain Aire did not come with a water reel.... My Mountain Aire is a 2000, and it came with one OEM. And to take this one step further..... I would think just about all the Newmar Coach's would come with a hose reel as standard equipment....
Did you ask them if this was standard on your year model?

That's nothing but a hose winder. You have to take it completely off and hook it up.
More trouble than it's worth IMO.

The hose must be completely unspooled before using. So if your water outlet is 5 ft away you must unroll all 25 ft. before using. I have a manual version and it also kinks very easily. I suggest you look at the Glendinning Hosemaster units. CW has a sale on them now ($400) and it's a nice reel, it's what came with ours. It's a manual extension and power retraction using a regular RV/ Marine hose.

Another option, this is a live reel, costs more, but less than $300

Shoreline Reels CW40D01R-SR Motorized RV Drinking Water Hose Reel

Another option I've considered, retractable

I read the installation instructions on the website page he linked to. You have to unwind the entire hose and then you have to hook one end to the supply and one end to your camper input so the answer to your question is No it is not hooked to the MH. Also I agree with the other posters those hoses are subject to kinking and have to be laid out carefully in order to get them to work. I bought one for an extension for my existing reel. I also have a shoreline water and electric hose reels on my tiffin and they work well

I looked at this unit. I noticed it has an automatic spooler to wind your hose straight which my shoreline does not have. I also notice it has a replacement spool which is fairly reasonable. I would definetly recommend the OP to look at this product
