Of RV life is all about the necessities, and one of the most essential is clean drinking water. Your RV water hose is the connection between the source of water and the RV. Thinking of throwing a garden hose in your rig to save money? There, you’ve got it. Water hoses for RVs should be certified as safe for drinking water, as some lawn hoses still contain potentially harmful chemicals.
A variety of water pressures can be handled, kink resistance is present, and durability is also an important characteristic. Ten, twenty five, thirty five, and fifty feet are the most common lengths for RV water hoses. When camping, length can make a difference, but when traveling, the longest hoses take up the most space. The hoses we recommend are 25 feet long. Most manufacturers will have shorter and longer hoses and the pros and cons will be the same.
When it comes to RV gear, Camco is a well-known brand. It is largely due to the attention to detail that we have built that reputation. With its kink-resistant construction, thick, durable and specially treated UV protection, the Premium RV water hose will resist premature fading, aging, and cracking.
