Looking for a Water Hose

Right now I have 3 25' hoses for the trailer, none of which I really like. I always use 2, I attach a Y fitting at the source and run one to the city water connection and one to the black tank flush then i have an extra just in case. They kink, usually leak a little bit at the fittings and are very stiff since the weather has been cooler.

What I'm looking for is a great non-kink, flexible HD hose at a reasonable price. What are y'all using and has anyone found the "ultimate" hose?

Thanks,
Don

I use custom length hoses from the RV Water Filter Store. They do not kink and you'll only have to buy them once.

How long have you had them? They are quite a bit more expensive than the white hoses that most people use, and I am just wondering if they will outlast the white hoses, and if so, by how long.

The hoses by RV water filter store do look awesome but I too wonder about longevity. Just a quick note, if you are leaving a hose connected to the black tank washer, it is probably a good idea to have an anti-siphon device hooked up also.

I have had my RV Water Filter Store hoses for eight years now and they are still going strong. I have a 5', a 15' and a 20'.

Is the stainless worth it?

Check the Camco products out:

we've been very satisfied with their hose, as well as their other products.

I use the white hoses from wherever I find them. I also have a couple of hose repair kits on hand all the time. I carry a blue hose for tank flushing and general washing.

Does anyone use the stainless fittings hoses from the rvwaterfilterstore?

Since I full time I'm thinking these might be a good option as long as the hose itself is up to the task. I would hate to have a nice stainless and expensive hose end on a hose with a big hole in it.
