Fresh water hose

Any suggestions on a fresh water hose? Even with water pressure monitor, hose keeps breaking.

Are you using the white ones, you can get the Camco ones at Walmart for under $10, and so far mine have lasted over two years, prior hoses I have had with other RV's lasted for 10+ years and only had to be replaced because they started leaking at the fittings, but never burst.

Maybe someone smarter than I could post an actual link.

If you want a QUALITY hose buy one of these. Solid brass of Stainless ends and these are flexible even when cold. Several lengths are available.

On edit I guess the link works!

Like Mike and Cha I use the white ones and have done so for 35 years.

I had one break in Salt Lake City KOA when it was very hot outside and I left the pedestal water turned on when we went exploring.

I suggest you turn off the pedestal water supply when you leave your RV.

If by monitor, you mean pressure regulator, you must have it on the wrong end.
What you need is a pressure regulator, they are set at 40PSI, and attach it to the faucet. then attach the hose to that. Las Cruces, NM has ultra high pressure in some parks and it will blow your hose overnight. They sell a lot of hoses there.

I use Armadillo Hoses:

Will likely last a lifetime. Not cheap, but quality comes with a price.
