we expect to camp in parks with full connections.

Any thought to a water pressure regulator?

Good insurance, but definitely not guaranteed if you leave water spikot on all the time. Personally myself I dont and just fill tanks when I need to.

Though many use the fresh water hose to flush. I do not recommend it
WHite or clear = Fresh
Green - Flush
Black = Well you know what black water is
Gray. Likewise.


Home is where I park it.

The black water hoses some come with the bayonet end in order to hook up several lenghts and an elbow to conect by screwing on to the parks sewer lines, on some older parks all they provide is a staight pipe down and you need to insert the hose at least 2' feet or more in order to prevent the end to "pop" out when you open the valve, I use the blue hoses and have never had a problem, I also have a device looks like a box that straddles the hose and I fill it with water at the campsite when done I use that water to either rince the hoses or the dump site, and some parks requiere you to use a cone shapped dougnut to seal the connection.

Hope it helps a little, we pick a town or area and if we like it we stay a few days or a month, if it is not to ower liking we move on.

Water Right 400 Series Polyurethane Slim & Light Drinking Water Safe Garden Hose, 25-Foot x 7/16-Inch, Brass Fittings, USA Made

Not the cheapest, but will not kink -- excellent drinking water hose ... Found it on Amazon at the recommendation of our Mod ... Different colors and different lengths ...

I'd just use a regular garder hose for the waste flush ...

Because of my experiences I have a 50 foot and two 25 foot fresh water hoses, two 15 foot black water dump hoses and one 25 foot hose for the black water flusher.

I bought a 50' hose, cut it into a 15' and a 35'. That gives me 3 options for water: 15', 35' or 50'; have never needed more than that.

Got 20' of sewer hose (2-10' sections); usually 10' is enough.

I use an old green 10' hose for flush.

Hmm. I carry 100' of drinking water hose. Maybe more. Once two other campers and I combined hoses to refill fresh water tanks in a state park. I think we had around 300' of hose out that day. But so much better than moving the rig!

Carry a 25' electric cord, 30amp

2 10' sewer hoses, so max 20'.

Yea I actually have 250' of that flat hose but have only used it a couple times each in North Pines and Furnace Creek. I only carry when needed.

I generally need between 20'-35' of hose at the RV parks that I visit. I carry a 25' Zero G hose and that's my primary. I carry a 15' hose from RVWaterFilterStore.com. And I carry a 25' cheap Camco hose from Walmart.

It's a hodge-podge but mirrors my recommendation- buy what you need as you need it. Start with the 25' Zero G hose and then buy another if you need it.
