3050s City Water connection

just retruned from hershey trop. during the stay, my water connection leaked really bad. seems the weight of the water hose will bend down and cause a leak. i am sure someone has a quick fix to solve this problem. if you keep the hose straight the leak goes away. need some idea to keep hose up and weight off connection

I just put a brass elbow on the end so the hose hangs down instead of out.

X3 - Amazon has them cheap. A little teflon tape and it is a permanent attachment to our 5er's city water hookup!

Wally World has them also. I don't leave mine on permanently as I don't want it sticking out the side of the MH, but even without teflon tape, it doesn't leak and solves the problem of the hose pulling on the MH water connection.
