While washing the Coach this morning, my blue flex hose blew........they are nice and I like them, I bought a couple of Dura rib pocket hose's from my local True Value a couple weeks ago in anticipation of the blue one failing. I have, so far, had good luck with the newer models. They are not to be trusted though! Like for un-attended water supply!

Zero-G does make a 25 foot RV hose

If I could find one I might try it. My hoses are getting older and hard to store.

Pocket hose

Presently use a black one. Not sure where it came from. Use it for windshield wash when traveling. Bought a flat wind up one from CW. Piece of ****, threw it away after 3 months. will have to look at stores for one that is for drinking. Woud be nice if a pocket could be used for that. Would worry about constant pressure tho!

starting to get somewhere now. Although not considered a pocket type hose at least it's lighter than regular hoses. Amazon has a 50' garden version on there for $36 with pretty good reviews although didn't see any RV specific reviews for that one.

Howdy!

This is the hose I purchased a Camping World. It is drinking water safe to use in RV use. I like it enough to I will buy another when I come across it. Not a small and compact as it other pocket hoses, but much more sturdy and easier to handle than the traditional water hose.

Thanks for all the info. Guess I'll stick with the heavy duty hose I've been using for the last five years. It's hard to roll up but isn't leaking.

so far that's been where I've landed too after researching different hoses. That Zero-G has some potential and I may end up giving that one a try although my main reason is space and not necessarily weight. I don't mind rolling up 100' of hose.....it's the storing 100' of hose I don't care for. I also have 100' of 10 gauge power cable I have to wind up and store also. All that stuff takes up a chunk of room.

My DW buys one every year to use to water plants on the front porch of our stick and brick house. Every year she hooks the new one up and then starts with the "oohs" and the "aahs" over convenient it is since it's light and takes up so little space. Within a couple of weeks it's leaking like a colander ... within in month, it gets replaced with one of the real hoses we've had around the house for years. It's one of the things I'm first to point at when I'm on a "we've got to be smarter about how we spend money" rant. Far as I'm concerned the pocket hose is little more than a prime example of PT Barnum's adage about fools and money.
