X-hose anybody have one?

Has anybody have an X-hose I was wondering about durability do they work well etc. The one thing I hate more than anything in my camper is hose’s; trying to carry 50" of hose is really a pain not to mention draining, winding up and storing. Most of the water quality where I camp is questionable at best; I never drink from my water tank so potable water hose quality would not be an issue for me.

I have never used an X-Hose, the thought of it sounds interesting. What I do is carry two 25’ hoses. This way I only pull out what I need. I actually wish I had bought a 7’ or a 10’ hose as my primary hose and use the 25’ when I need a little bit more. Last year I think I only hooked up two hoses once.

As for draining the hose it is no big deal. When drained and coiled, I have a couple pieces of two sided Velcro (loop on one side hook on the other side) to hold the coil together, I connect the ends of the hose together to keep it from dripping out what ever remaining water. Generally speaking it is clean neat and keeps the HTT dry.

Seann45, can you tell me why you found it to be a pain?
