Drinking water and electric reels

Hi,

Has anyone added a aftermarket fw hose reel and/or service cable reel? I'm looking to make things a little easier when docking during travels

Thanks

Do you have a photo of one installed? In regards to the water hose where and how do you install it? Is there a specific one that fits in the wet bay?

Same here...but Harbor Freight???

I'm interested in hearing of anybody doing this, too, although I wouldn't walk but rather I'd run away from most items Harbor Freight sells that isn't a known quantity for quality.

I've thought about adding a power retractable reel for the power cord.

The Shoreline line of reels look pretty good. They make several versions of retractable reels for marine and RV use.

Wow!

Thanks. Just checked ... $568.00 and change. I think I'll continue to hand load.

I don't find any reels at HF that will handle as large a cable as we need for RV's.

When handling a 6/4awg cable it takes a pretty big reel and a pretty strong motor to roll it back up.
