Thank you all for the replies. It appears red horse may be right might just be better to buy new hose(s). Then again I just noticed that my 90 degree elbow which is recommended for RV use contains lead and other cancer causing materials, so I may be over thinkng it.

Thanks again,
Brian

Congratulations on the "new-to-you" trailer, and welcome to The Forum! I, also, have two 25'ers. But since you already have the 50, go ahead and cut it up. The fittings aren't that expensive - just make sure they're food grade. The lengths you suggested sound good to me. As an alternative, you could get one 25'er, then cut your 50 down to two 25'ers, wrap some black electrical tape around each end of one (as a reminder), and use it for your black tank flush hose. At least it won't go to waste.

(Oh! I guess if you use it for you black tank flush, it will go to "waste".)

Brownie,
That's the problem I'm having finding food grade hose fittings at a reasonable price. Can you recommend a place to get them?

Thank you

You have to remember the statement about lead is CYA.

X2. Me and most of my friends grew up drinking water out of the garden hose that was laying on the ground. We needed something to wash down the lead paint chips we munched on. Then we'd jump on our bikes and ride all around all summer without $500 worth of safety equipment. Of course, that was before the law schools dumped 6 jillion lawyers on us and assigned one to every ambulance and pharmacy in the country.

Ah, lead, I could taste it now...nothing like it! Memories of leaded gas and carburetors...those were the days! Our kids will never understand!

Well I wandered down to the local big box "hardware" store today and after about an hour of looking with very little help from the staff I managed to find a lead free Y and 90 degree attachment, I was also able to find the female end for repairing a hose, but no male end. Go figure! In the end it didn't really matter because they were about $7 each so it will be less expensive to return my 50' hose and buy a couple of shorter hoses.

I also picked up a couple battery operated LED lights for the cargo bays from camping world and got a couple of spare door keys from the local locksmith for $4 each, so overall a pretty good day. 8)

Thanks again for all the help,

Hoamy
