Fresh Water Hose Suggestions

Looking to buy new fresh water hoses for my 2021 Jayco Eagle 334RLOK.
My mind is scrambled watching all the various reviews from searching online.

Any feedback or recommendations would be super helpful.

Thank You!

You will probably get a 100 answers. The key element to look for, the hose is rated for potable water.

I'm using the white camco hoses in the tt. They are nothing fancy, but they work.

I've only ever bought what Walmart had on the shelf. Never disappointed by that choice.

What they^^^^ said. The main thing is that you never, ever use that same hose for anything but fresh potable water. Ever.

Considering that I drank out of house garden hoses for a good part of my life, am now 79, no cancer, no ills, and still do five days a week in the gym and I even eat red meat, I would not worry too much about what brand. If it says potable water you are fine. They need to be replaced every few years anyway just from sun damage.

I've had the ZeroG hoses in the past; however, I am really liking the Flexilla hoses now. Lightweight and very flexible even when it is cool out.

Another user here of the Camco white freshwater hose. It’s beefier than the cheaper blue one and has held up through 25* nights and 105* days throughout the West. Going strong after six-plus years!

We have some white Camco ones too. I believe there are two 25 footers, a 5 footer, and somewhere along the line we ended up with two 10 footers. Maybe one of those has a leaky end fitting, can't remember for sure.

I got tired of wrestling with the standard hoses and went with a collapsible drinking hose from Aqua Joe. Used it all year last year (roughly 60 nights) with no issues and so far so good this year.

I am another ZeroG guy. Drinking water safe and easy to just cram into whatever bucket or box you have . No kink, no cold problems, solid fittings.

I have tried about every "new" idea collapsible hose touted by Amazon, TV and every other advertiser and every one of them, including those I bought from Costco leaked after about a year. They are all Chinese crap!


And if you think we are not being screwed by the Chinese just buy more of their stuff.

While Iíd love to use a Zero-G for my FW for the reasons you mentioned, Iím gun shy after the first one I bought blew the fitting the first time I used it. The replacement has been OK, but, after a couple of years, does leak at the fittings. Itís OK for garden use, but I just donít trust it with constant pressure. Itís too bad, because coiling my cold vinyl hose is a real pain.

Flexzilla has been my choice for the past 2 years. Easy to coil in any Temp & Drinking water safe. No issues & it is still going strong.

I have flexzilla at home. They work very well. They will kink with low pressure, but work well.

Another vote for Flexzilla, we are using some 1/2” and as stated, they are light and flexible, very easy to coil and manage.

I bought a blue freshwater hose from Ace Hardward. The connection ends were much higher quality than the ones from Camco and it was even embossed Fresh Water... fully potable...

+1 more for the Flexzilla. I keep a couple on hand in case we are far from the faucet.

We just use a Garden hose. We do have a Campco White Hose as well. Usually use that at the tap and add the garden hose if needed. That's the ONLY thing the garden hose is used for. Hooking the camper up to the water supply.

I found these China Stainless Steel hoses on the jungle store. Had them on the RV for 3 seasons. Exposed to high heat & low temps, UV rays in So. FL, OBX and all over the east coast.
Ive tried the Blue Joe hoses, 0 deg & TV advertised rectractabke around the farm & always get pinhole leaks or failure at the fittings. Try:
Cesun Ultra-Sturdy 25ft Metal Garden Hose - 304 Stainless Steel, Flexible & Kink-Free, UV Resistant, All-Weather - Ideal for Home & Outdoor Use. BPA Lead-free, potable water
https://a.co/d/bf365js
The hoses have been hit by park weedwackers, ran over by the neighbors F350 (caution moving the TV after a few too many wooble pops after the community campfire)
Yeah, i would $ 2x if I could find these with the Made in American label. You can buy them in 1 ft increments so i have hooked to the onboard filtration & softner systems.
