I use Flexzilla hoses and solid brass QD's that use an O-ring seal instead of the cheaper aluminum or plastic QD's that depend on a non-standard hose washer for their seal. The combination works well with my 78 year old arthritic hands. The only thing I screw on is the pressure regulator that has a large easy to grip plastic collar on the faucet end.

You could get the hose with the large-grip female end, and on the male end you can add a shutoff valve. Once you've screwed it tight to the hose one time with a wrench, the valve handle will give you plenty of purchase for turning by hand from then on.

I leave THIS on my male end and hold onto it while connecting to the camper. My female end already has a large grip on it.

Thanks all! Got a Giraffe to try out our next trip, looks like it will work for us.

FWIW, tried two different couplers, still too difficult for our aging hands.
