I think there are only 2 mfgs making them. If I recall correctly, Amazon carries one brand and Camping World carries the other Brand.

Hi,

Probably better to run on tank water. The hoses are expensive.

If you are going Fulltime like I have the past 3 years you gotta have a heated hose or you can do like i do and go the cheaper route and get heat TAPE at the hardware store I think it cost me about 25 bucks and i also put foam tube wrapped around the hose also WORKS PERFECT and i have never had a frozen hose.I do not like traveling around with a full tank of fresh water it is just too much weight but that is a option to run just off the inboard tank when it gets cold

Yup, that's what we did when we full timed, heat tape from the hardware store, wrapped with foam tube. Never froze!

So you really want a $250 heated water hose?

I would rather just fill up my fresh water tank on warmer days, and dump at the same time.
