I've been using these: Amazon We picked them up at a local store tho. We do not have a door over our fittings so we just use the male end on the water fill and tank flush fittings. They have a cap dangling on a short plastic tether than fits right over the end of the male quick connect. I need to order some more so I can put then on our extra hoses. I don't know if these are any better than other brand but they work.

From my experience if you get the brass ones you want the one 's with the rubber washer. The Harbor freight one's will start leaking over time if they are just brass to brass.

^^X2 Get the ones with the rubber o-rings. A light coating of silicone grease will keep the o-rings sealing well. Used QDs a lot when we used to take many shorter trips each year. Not so much anymore as we either boondock or stay at our winter location for 6 months.

I have QDs on everything. Just easier to hook up and then break down later. Fresh water hose, connect the ends when stored to keep critters out. I also have a water filter that is used occasionally, QDs make it easier to connect however we need at the time. But use the brass ones with o-rings. I carry a couble of spare sets, the ends occasionally get damaged and are hard to use.

I added quick connect garden hose fittings to my low point drains. I can connect an outdoor sink for outside hot and cold water cleaning or an on demand water heater in lieu of the onboard water heater or a city water in through the cold water low point.

There is a small plastic 90° garden hose elbow quick connect available. It might work for you but hasn't for me on the city water inlet for closing the hatch after disconnecting. I bought them at one of my local trailer dealers. It was only the male hose thd x male garden hose quick connect fitting. Camping World has them as a set. Hose saver with quick connect.

I use them. However with low pressure if not aligned they may leak. I have some older ones that have tighter tolerances.
Amazon has a variety but I haven't
tried any of them except the ones that look the same as those from CW.
