Blows my mind when I read about people needing to run 200 to 300 feet of hose for water... That's crazy. We keep two 6 gal totes, a water thief and about 50 feet of drinking hose and one 25 foot green utility hose. I agree the pocket hose would be nice, they take little space and in a smallish TT that is a real winner. I'd love it at home as well, hate coiling the hoses on the reel.

Been using the very poor quality pocket hose for two years now and have not had a problem. I use it for everything except potable water. I never close the valve fully, just let it trick to prevent over pressure. Use to wash the RV when away from home and to flush the black tank. Perfect for the RV.

Can't tell you the brand we have, but it is black and hubby bought one 5 months ago for our home to wash the motorcycles and water plants in the front of our "villa". It works great! Now he is adamant that we stretch it way out as recommended before we turn the water on, and that we release pressure after the spigot is off. When empty, it piles into a small space in one of those hose pots and is very unobtrusive.

Kinda off topic but this is how I do mine. i hook a hose between the outside shower and the black water flush. What it allows is for me to use hot water to flush the tank and even at a remote dump site I can still use the black water flush - I don't use it if there line waiting to dump. I have done this for a couple of years and when my shower connection was not next to my dump connection I used one of the green retractable hose to make the connection.

Green hose storage

I had one of the DAP black hoses with the brass fittings and the first time I tried to use it a fitting leaked. Turned the spigot off and disconnected the hose before releasing the pressure. Got drenched as the hose bled off pressure and the end flopped around like a snake.
I bought one of the $20 seen on tv hoses and it works fine. For storage I use a plastic gallon ice cream bucket. Fits perfectly. Got to enjoy the ice cream too.

We have the green one and I have it on a splitter at the park connection. We use it as a utility hose during our stay. Also use it to hook up the toilet wand. No problems what so ever.
