Sometimes having too much is better than not enough. We have been in a couple of state parks that the adjacent sites water supply was shared on the same post between them. That meant it was on the wrong side for one site and a ways away. Having a couple extra was better than having to find a store to buy a drinking water safe hose.

We also have many times driven nose in into sites on waterfront for the view so extra hose and electric cord were a must.

To stay on topic One spare is coiled up with the ends connected right now.

I mentioned this in my earlier post. But for those wanting to have extra hose for those times when you need a bit more footage, this has worked well for us. Packs well, as I slide it next to the plastic cabinet drawers we stow our other plumbing supply in. I coil our bigger primary hose, connect the ends, use a twisty to hold the coil, and it rides in on top of those cabinets quite well. Our two drawer cabinets has the lower cabinet holding extra RG6 cable, and related other dog bones and power pole related connectors. The second drawer holds our single Stinky Slinky (Also drained, and then connected together.). For longer runs on the Stinky side of hoses, we have two more 10' lengths available behind the cabinet drawers. Maybe need to use them 20-30% of the time, usually when we're pulling in on the opposite side of the connections, to maximize either the view, or avoid full exposure of the windscreen in very hot areas.

Robot Check

Caution: It says 50' in the heading, but it is really a 25', as pictured on the product.

Dogs eat poop. I am not sure that using them as your gauge is the way to go.

Been doing the same thing for years. Just run water through it before I connect to RV.

I don't keep my water hose in the wet bay, that's where I keep my sewer hoses.

There's an old thing about not mixing meat and dairy or something like that.

I don't mix waste and fresh water. I wish coach manufacturers wouldn't put the fresh water inlet next to the sewer dump.

Our wet bay is divided. Sewer hook ups on the right, fresh water on the left. The divider doesn't go all the way to the top so I can only get one hose and our filter in the fresh water side. The automatic reel is installed on the far side of it from the sewer. The other hoses go in another compartment.

It does seem like completely separate compartments would be a good idea.
