Can anyone recommend a water hose that stays flexible during cooler temps. Right now I have the Camco water hose and when the temps get around 40 degrees or so, it is simply annoying to try to roll these hoses up for storage. Thanks

I use a Flexzilla hose. Drinking Water safe, won't kink up and works great in cold temperatures. Not cheap though.

We have just used "Heat" tape wrapped around the hose, and disconnected from the RV at night when temps are too drop to low. Good Luck and Happy Camping !!

Not "CHEAP" but it will be the last hose you will ever buy! They have several lengths along with SS and Brass ends.

rvwaterfilterstore.com

They sell fittings, valves and pressure regulators and more. Going on 4 years of full time use.

Thank you Cummins12V98 I will check their website. I can see you can search more than hoses.

Ron, are they flexible? I too would like a hose that does not fight back when rolling up in cooler weather

YES they are flexible in cold weather also.

Some don't like the fact they are 1/2" ID but on a RV that really does not matter! I have plenty of volume.

Thanks for then clicky! That's beyond my pay grade.
