Thanks for the feedback! I think I'll try a hose upgrade. The cost and aggrevation of messing with the one we have doesn't seem wirth it!

We take bottle water with us and gallon jugs from Walmart. We never drink campground water. I use a Camco water hose from Walmart, it is blue in color and works better than the white hose

In what way(s) does it work better than white? I'm interested.

It is a little easier to get in plastic box, when it's cold outside its a little easier to work with. The fittings seem to work more better than the white one does. Plus the white ones seem to get dirty more. I change my water hoses but the white tend to get corroded more. Just my two cents

I use an in line water filter and the water tastes better than what comes out of my faucet at home.

However, we use a filter at the hose bib. No odors.
We carry water from home for drinking.

We drink bottled water, I will go ahead and make coffee from the campground water if it's clear.

When I was a kid I'd drink straight from the creek or pull a bucket up out of the well and drink it. I guess my standards have risen.

We have never had a problem with hose smell but we have had some funky camp water.We sanitize the system and I keep some water in the tank for emergency but we never drink or cook with camp water.
Also when I add to my tank I use one of my potable hoses
It takes an extra couple minutes but I want that tank water to be safe if I need it

I threw all those away.

I have two of these: One longer than the other. BEST investment I have made for the camper.
