Looking for fresh water hose with feature for couple getting on in years and going down in strength.

Want water hose, don't care what color, that has a "grip" on both ends. "Grip" being an easy-to-grasp assistant for tightening the connections. There are lots available with a "grip" on the female end but haven't been able to find one with "grip" on both ends. Closest I've seen so far (not bought) is one with hex ends for a wrench but that's not what I want.

I found using good quality disconnects work better. Install connectors with wrench once.
Edit: I use brass quick connects.

We like the Flexilla and get some quick connects. Then the only fitting you have to deal with is the one to the campground faucet.

I am with Grit Dog on this one. Being an "old" with one pretty much useless left hand I have equipped all my hoses and other parts with Quick Connectors

The only thing I have to connect that requires screwing to the hose bib is my Pressure Regulator which has a large grip on the end,everything from there on has quick connects,pressure regulator,water filter,then hose to RV all equipped with quick connects at both ends.

I use Greenleaf garden hose couplers. They do not leak and used several years now. Tractor supply has the best prices.

I have a brass elbow on my motorhome city water intake connection. Like this brass elbow.

Then I just hold the hose still with one hand and turn the brass elbow end with the grips to tighten onto the hose. Works great for me. I have used quick connects in the past, but I actually find that disconnecting is a little hard for me.

We own one of these. Best hose we've ever owned, and definitely not overpriced. We bought ours through Home Depot. At the time they had the best price and free shipping as well.

OOPS!!! Attached it to the wrong post. We have the FLEXILLA hose
