What ID water Hose for Jay Flight 28BHBE 2016

My water hose is barley reaching and would like to buy another one that is longer. I see they come in 5/8 ID or 1/2 inch. What do you recommend?

Either one will work. However if you are going longer I would probably choose the 5/8 so you don't see a flow rate reduction.

Flip a coin. There will be no issue using 1/2".

I have a 5/8" x 25' with a 40-50 psi regulator. The pressure ain't so great.

Get whatever is cheapest. It makes negligible difference.

X2, the pressure drop in a 1/2" hose is a bit greater, however in the tt your not needing a huge amount of water as you only have one bathroom and one kitchen sink.

If you had a three bathrooms and a kitchen you'd appreciate the larger hose.

Make sure to get a hose that is for drinking water.

Yeah I see over 10+ gallons per minute all the time from spigots connected to half inch piping. You wouldn't need 10GPM in you trailer with all the fixtures running at once hahahaha. If your water volume is minimal, it not caused by the half inch hose (unless it is kinked!).
