Fresh Water Hose

Does anyone have any great ideas to store your fresh water hose? Seems like its a pain to wind up and they unravil in the storage compartment. I know you can get a hose reel (like ones for your house) but those aren't very practical for a camper. Thanks in advance for any ideas posted.

I have a neat little gizmo that helps me wrap my hose. It is shaped like an 8. You slide the rubber "8" down your hose a couple of feet. The further you slide the "8" down the hose the bigger your coil of hose will be. You put the end of the hose through other end of the "8" making a loop of hose. Then you go hand over hand around the coil of hose, making more coils with as you go. It is hard to type this so you understand it, but it is really simple to do. After the hose is coiled I put 2 Velcro wraps around the hose to hold the coil together.

The hose holder/coil helper looks sort of like this image or a snorkel keeper for a diver.

We use a product called cable cuffs. They are reusable and great for coiling your hoses and extension cords.

Cable cuffs will hold the hose once you have it coiled, but the thing I use helps you coil the hose so that it is all one size, and it only takes a minute to coil the hose. You could use the cable cuffs to keep the coiled hose from coming unwrapped.

That's what my palm and elbow is for. :hihi:

Here is a link to the item I use. It is called a "coil and wrap". They make them for water hoses, electrical cord, tv cable, etc.

I can not get a nice wrap using my hand and elbow. I have tried that many times and the hose is not "nice" when I get done.:hihi:

I've used a CordPro XL for many years to store my water hose. I also use one to store my 30A extension cord and the smaller CordPro 100 for my coax cable.

I simply coil the hose (same size coils) and screw the ends together. The coils always stay nicely in place, and it's easy to get out at the next campground.
