No, they don't have to be completely un-reeled. There are 3 fixed diameter clear plastic tubings moulded inside the outer plastic covering. The clear plastic tubes inside the outer covering don't expand. I run a pressure regulator whenever the RV park pressure is above 55 PSI. All I can say is at 55 PSI or less it has not burst for me. I have not "heard" this - it's my personal acutal experience.

Well for what it is worth this is my experience with the coiled hoses.

I wanted one for the same reason as the OP.

You get what you pay for with the coiled hoses I went the CHEAP route not a good experience.

Then I did some research and dished out a few more bucks and I have used it for two years now on two Different trailers.

It is so easy unhook hold one end hold it up drain remaining water and chunk it in the box!

I do always use a water pressure regulator.

I have never seen one of those PORTABLE hoses that is rated for human consumption (potable water).
The OP said they don't drink from the tap, that is fine as long as all the cooking is being done with bottled water also. The white snake we all hate is the hose that is rated safe for human consumption.

Thanks for all the replies.

I found a 25ft coils hose that is drinking water safe.

And has a 3 year warranty.

So I may just try is and see how it goes. If it does fail I will just return it and go back to the pain in the butt white hose.
