Lesson Learned: Flexible Hose Protector vs. Hose Elbow

The Camco 22703 Flexible Hose Protector that comes with their water filter should NOT be attached to the side of the RV. It will bend over time and water will leak from it. It should only be used at the faucet. Instead one should use the Camco 22505 90 Degree Hose Elbow on the side of the RV instead. Lesson learned.

When I bought my kit from Amazon, it came with the brass 90 degree, fresh water hose, flex hose and regulator. Never had to worry about any of this stuff with my pop-up! So I have it this way..

from TT: elbow, flex, filter, hose then regulator.

Exactly how I have it as well.

Bad architecture on Jayco's part puts my city water inlet just above the water heater so when I use the 90 degree elbow and water heater on gas it melts part of the filter. So, I used the Camco hose protector and it melted part of the hose protector and part of the filter. I now use two hose protectors connected together in order to get the filter far enough away from the heat of the water heater when on gas. But I hear what you are saying...not the best solution.

That's how mine is set up as well. Works for me! No kinked hoses or leaks anywhere.

I attach the regulator, flex hose and filter at the CG faucet then use a 90 at the TT. I'm I the only one that doesn't trust putting any weight on the fresh water connection?

I noticed the connection on the trailer flexing and will switch to putting the filter at the source also.

Nope, not the only one...

From the TT. . . 90 degree connector - white hose - filter...

I always make sure the filter is placed directly onto the water source. Why not run filtered water through my hose instead of camp water.. And just as Iraq stated, I don't want to add any more weight to the poorly designed water inlet attached to my TT..

I tried it like that the first time. But it seemed like the pressure decreased. I guess do to the fact it goes through the regulator then the filter at the beginning of the setup. Seems like my pressure increased a little moving the filter closer to the TT. That's just me though. Others may have a different process but this just worked better for my situation.

I got back and forth on whether to put the regulator before or after the filter?

I've heard that the regulator should go before water enters the filter as it's possible for really high pressure to damage the filter.

I've also heard to put the regulator after the filter because a.) keeps the regulator clean and b.) the filter can decrease pressure, so by putting the filter after the regulator, you end up with less water pressure in your Camper.

Thoughts?
