That's funny. That's not a doodad. A doodad would have a switch. That's a thingamajig.

Unless it's blue, then it's a Blue Whooey.

I have a deep dislike for those, they burnout faster than muffler bearings...

If they are burning out that fast you must have gotten the ones made in China. Get the American made ones, they last forever.

Considering that the INTERNAL lines in a RV are usually 1/2" and sometimes 3/8" and that the water then flows through a faucet cartridge that probably has a 1/8" passage, I don't really think that the outside hose will have much effect.

I prefer the zirconium tangential muffler bearings. They cost a little more, but they keep your hands a lot warmer.

As for the hoses. It really doesn't matter whether you use 1/2" or 5/8" diameter, just be sure you have enough length to get from the faucet to the RV inlet.

Now I turn on the water and if it runs really fast/hard/whatever, I insert the doodad between the faucet and the blue with white stripped hose. If the water doesn't run fast/hard, I don't insert the doodad. I haven't blown up any water parts since I started using my scientifical method.



Agreed. Or use a water softener. It drops pressure too.

I always buy two 5/8" fresh hoses. That way when I fill my fresh tank I have more flow than the smaller hoses. And I buy a 50' 5/8" hose for the black flush and draining the gray tank..... Quickly. 🙌
