Water hoses

Looking to pick up a new water hose. Tired of hoses that wont roll back up and constantly kink.

Looking at one of the expandable type hoses. I assume any is good as long as it is rated for drinking?

What are others using?

We use one of the blue Camco 5/8" hoses. Coil your hose in a figure 8 and it will not kink. They do coil more easily in warm weather than cold.
I can tell you that Aqua-Joe hoses are total junk. I do not know about other brands of collapsable hoses.

I have one of the Camco's myself...worked pretty good for awhile, then became as bad as the rest for kinking etc. Will have to try the figure 8.

Also watching some videos on rolling hoses. Seems like some good ideas there. Over then under...

I have one of these: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1
And so far it has been excellent. Tractor Supply has a good one too but I don't recall the name of it.

Ditto on the Zero G. I use them on the Motorhome and at home. So far two years with no problems. They roll up nicely and are very lightweight.

Double Ditto on the Zero G hose. It coils easily, works well. Highly recommend it.

For those using the Zero-g. Are you using the 1/2" RV/marine or the 5/8" standard hose?

Water hoses

Another Zero G here. 1/2Ē Blue for the fresh water and grey for tank flush/hosing stuff off here.

Zero G is awesome because it coils more like a thick rope than a hose. And certainly better than the auto kink White cheapie.

This winter I bought a 5/8 flexzilla hose for our drinking water for the 5th wheel. It is not white which I am sure some people will say is not right but I am ok with that. I have not had a chance to use it yet but if it is anything like the air hoses that we use at work in the shop then I beleive it will be way better then the camco hose I had before. I also bought a expanding one that I am going to try using for flushing the tanks.
