Total fresh water capacity and water hose lengths

Hi,

Intererested to hear what fresh water capacity folks have including portable containers, also what length of water hose do you carry?

My fresh is 107 gallons

Fresh 82.
Hot water 10.
Portable 7 and 8.

Hoses are about 100 feet in 4 sections, I use these in state parks with a water bandit to fill from taps.

I am thinking of adding another 50ft of hose and another 15-20 gallons of collapsible containers.

Personally, carrying the extra hoses I agree with, but I make due with the amount of potable that the tank can carry. We don't use the potable for drinking water, but everything else. IMHHO if you are going to be near someplace to get more water when needed then why carry all the extra? You still have be some place to get rid of the Black and Grey tank stuff.

Hi,

The portable is for stays at state forests when no water supply is available, we would fill up beforehand.

I have 121 gallons of black and grey. We use dish pans for washing dishes and dump it down the toilet mainly but could dump outside if stuck. Also have an outside shower which drains on the ground.

112 fresh,115 gray & 60/65 black.
Do not carry any extra water, 35' hose on the reel, and a 50' carry along.
Only hook to faucet(with a filter) to fill fresh tank, then disconnect and store..DO NOT leave hooked up...EVER

Use water from tank for everything, sanitize tank once or twice a year..
(sanitize fresh tank with 4 cups of bleach & 4 heaping tablespoons baking soda)

We bought our first RV in 2005. Back then we mostly stayed in forest service campgrounds.

Every time my hoses were too short I bought another hose. I bought my last hose around 2010. I carry 175 feet with me.


2- 50 foot flat hoses that roll up on a wheel from Camping World.
3-25 foot regular white drinking water hoses.


For planning purposes when dry camping I have always used 5 gallons of water per person per day. That estimate has served me well for 13 years. That means that I sometimes have carried 40 gallons extra in 8-5 gallon cans.

Hi Pop Beaver,

175 is a lot of hose, thats good yo know it always worked for you.

5 gallons per day per person is good to know.
