I never understood why some folks don't use a RV rated hose. I mean they are relatively inexpensive at Walmart, actually quite cheap.

I bought two of these "quite cheap" hoses from Walmart last year. Both of them leak at the male end fitting. You know, the end that goes inside the water hook up area of my fifth-wheel.

I got tired of the tangled mess from the cheap white hoses. I love the drink-safe zero-G hoses. They're durable and much easier to deal with. I love folding up this hose instead of coiling the rigid ones.

These hoses at Walmart are far better then the standard white ones. The ends are much heavier duty.

So just wondering if you people worry as much about the water when you go to work, restaurant's, hotels, motel's and such.
Grew up drinking out of hose in the yard as I'm sure lots of us did.
O I forgot must use rv designated equipment and products.


If you cannot take good care of what you have, you will not have anything good for very long!!!

I bet you didn't drink the scalding hot smelly water from a hose lying in the sun.

I grew up drinking from our hose in the yard, too. If it was hot and sunny, I let the water run until it was cold before drinking it. [emoticon]

Nope, knew better, just cupped my hands and drank from the stream running thru the cow pasture.

I think that's the point of white hoses. They can't keep the water from getting hot, but they're supposed to not give it that hose taste.

Nope even as a child knew I didn't want to drink hot water, did you not know this.
