Zero G RV Hose

Good morning,

Does anyone out there have any experience with the Zero G RV hose?

We're thinking of getting rid of those wild and unwieldy Camco white vinyl ones.

I have seen a couple places where they are not to be kept under constant pressure or they will split.

Just looking for experiences out there.

I have 2 and have only needed 1 so far. I have used them for 2 trips since new and have not had any issues. They have not been used in temps above 80 degrees yet so not sure what the impact will be when the temps climb and heat the water in the hose.

Bought one for our Florida place and seems to be holding up fine in how weather. I often leave it on much of the day after I water plants and has not hurt it so far. I got one for my Jayco as I also hate that white piece of junk. I keep mine in a 2 gallon bucket in the camper and a longer one here in Florida in a decorative pot.

When they first came out, they were not dependable. I have friends who returned them after bursting on the first use with the rv water supply.

I have read that they are much improved but I have not invested in them.

I bought 2 of the Zero G hoses (not the RV, just standard which are also rated for drinking so I'm not sure of the difference between the hoses) at Lowes 3 years ago and I have been using them ever since. I think they are great, haven't had any issues. They are very simple to store, just throw them in a 5 gallon bucket, I usually connect the ends so nothing crawls in, always did that the white hoses also. I guess I did have 1 issue, when camping near Las Vegas in July. The pad was concrete and the day temps were about 115 degrees. We did not turn on the water heater for the 3 days we were there. Took showers, washed dishes, never needed the water heater. We normally drink bottled water anyway so it was almost a benefit not having to use the water heater. Both air conditioners ran non stop for 3 days, but the water heater wasn't needed.

I have 2 25 footers in the fifth wheel I've used for 3 seasons. One rarely gets used but I've not had a single issue with them. They are great for storage and cooler temps do not make them any more difficult to roll up. I bought 2 50's and a 100 footer from Lowe's 2 years ago for the house. They get used a bunch and no problems with them either. I can easily stretch the hundred wherever as compared to dragging a heavy vinyl or rubber hose. I do store them during the winter months.

I have two, one for fresh water and one to flush the black tank. I have had them for two years. Now that we are FT, the fresh water hose is used 24/7. They've been used in 100+ degree weather for weeks and I've experienced "Zero" problems. Super easy to store. Can you tell I'm sold

I've been using them for fresh water hook up for 2 years now without problems. I just bought 2 new 25ft hoses to replace. They didn't need to be replaced... I just decided to use the old ones for the black tank flush, so now the Zero G's are all I have
