Fresh water hose

A long time RV'er taught me to roll up my hose and then connect the two ends together before storing. Keeps any little critters from setting up house between trips and other contaminants out.

This also keeps the threads from getting dinged up by other items moving around and landing on the hose connector.

I have a quick connect on the coach end - on the other end is a pressure gauge that acts as a one way valve. So the ends won't connect together. But the quick connect end has a ball that stops stuff from getting in.
