I checked my shed today and found I still have the flat hose, minus connector that screws onto the hose bib. That's where mine leaked. It sat on a shaded hose rack in 120 heat, without pressure. The hose was never kinked at the bib connector.

Wow!!! I have three of them. One is at least 35 years old and has been used extensively over that time without any problems except I broke the handle off the reel some years ago. Its just a bit cumbersome to wind up now but no problems other than that. Bought the white one about 3 years ago and leave it pressurized all weekend nearly every weekend at the campground and have had no problems with it at all. The 3rd one I bought at a thrift store and it does have some leaks. Use it just for filling tank or washing vehicles. Wind up cases on the last two work great. I try to lay the hose out straight when I'm about to wind them up so the water drains out and they flatten right out and wind up easy.

Yup, and I may have short guessed that as well. It could have been longer ago than that. A friend had one maybe a year or more before I got mine. I know they seemed quite expensive at the time but sure worked good.

They probably weren't made in China back then.

I can attest to about 20 years. Used one on a reel all the time for over nights. It was very convenient with my '91 Airstream 190 B Van. I sat it on top of my stored white hose. Never used it for extended periods of time, but I could reel it up in a heartbeat, toss it in storage and push the 30 amp power cord into its spot and be gone before the devil knew I was awake. The thing about the B is there is rarely an extended stay even when staying in the same place for extended time. No toad - just unhook and go. Love the A life but that B will have a place in my heart as long as I live.

I didn't have an RV 20 years ago and they wouldn't have caught my attention.

I grew up camping (am 65 now) and my parents gave us one in 1982 that is still going strong. It is a Toro brand and I love it. I got a 10 foot one from CW a couple of years ago that leaked within the first month of use. I will stick with my old one on the reel.

I guess if it stays inflated for four hours you have to see a doctor.
