Good tasting water/flexible/no kink. What do you guys/girls use?
Thanks

You want a hose that is certified for potable water. These are mostly white but have some in blue that were for potable water. You don't want to use the "standard" garden hose variety for your drinking water.
You will probably want to carry both a hose for potable water and a standard garden hose for rensing black tanks, washing the toad, etc.

Dunno brand. Picked up at camping world. Has ends that are easy to hand tighten.

I found a fabric hose (25') at Camping World for potable water that I carry as an extra because it folds up very small and is lightweight. My main potable water hose (25') came from Walmart and has the easy grip ends.

I also picked up a 90 degree fitting at Walmart that takes the stress off the city water connection. It was in the RV section.

Several years ago in Quartzsite, I picked up 4 hoses custom built by an RO vender. Their white, food grade hose with solid brass fittings. I've got ten years use on them, and I'm sure they will out last me!... I guess what I'm try'n to say here is!... If you can find a hose maker, (or components, hose & crimper to DIY) get the best you can!

... Now here's the kicker!!

The same RO vender that sold me that hose, (no longer in the "Q") also sold and installed our Full Auto RO System in the DP!....That was directly after the first shower the both of us took with Quartzsite (AZ) water! .... Sorry for such a long post just to say I can use any hose that will let water through it!...And next is the filtration/RO system to the tank!

...I never hook up to city water...

Don't know what RO is? RO vender? RO system?

90 degree elbow is a good thing to relieve twisting force on the coach water connection A quick connect fitting at the coach end is a handy thing as well.

Sorry. What I meant was I took out the white hose to run a leak test on the T/T and it did not want to unroll. It was not that cold. Set it in the sun for a while and it got better/softer/subtle ?

Humm, my white hose does not seem to do that, Well a little bit.. Wal*Mart special.. I have two white hoses, one for winter use has a string of incandescent rope lights taped to it. Now that one is hard to unroll in the cold, but it's the rope lights.. I just store it indoors when changing campgrounds and that way it's warmer.

If it gets cold out.. (below 35 degrees) it gets warmer too (T-stat on the light string).

We have several potable water hoses in 25 and 50 foot lengths. They are either CAMCO or Valterra and their 'premium' non-kink versions (yeah, for sure they don't kink ). And yes, they want to stay rolled when new but will uncurl after a few times in the hot sun.
