75' = 15' (normally long enough to suit 95% of hookups) + 2x30'.

Three shorter hoses are much easier to store and don't get damaged by using them when not needed and you just get out the shortest one that will reach

Hose connectors are easy. Done it for 60 years. Suggestion: buy high quality brass or bronze fittings- they're well made and last forever. Go to a landscape or plumbing supply. Avoid the Home Depot stuff, particularly the plastic- they're cheap for a reason, they break or deform when stepped on, and the plastic weakens quickly with UV exposure.

Keep this one, don't cut it. Go buy two shorter hoses.
