Water Hose Quick Connects

I use quick connects with no issues. Sure makes it a lot easier to connect/disconnect hoses. Here is my setup between city and fresh water supply connections.

I've used a quick disconnect on my water line since I bought my 2011 Georgetown. The hookup at the side of the RV is: 90 degree elbow, quick disconnect, inline ball valve, hose. This lets me shut off the water at the RV, unhook the disconnect, move the elbow to the other fill port and quickly hook everything up again. When I'm unhooking to leave, a closed ball valve lets me unhook from the RV before I shut off the hydrant.

I use them on everything I can with no real problems. Calcium scale can build up over time depending on where you are at and the quality of the water. They make life much simpler.

Great topic. I have thought about this many times. Anybody seen issues with the smaller fitting of the quick connect reducing water flow? That was my only hesitation.

I use them and they work fine. But I prefer the plastic quick-disconnects since the metals tend to corrode.

If your unit has one of these Winterizing valves you need NOT worry about Flow Reduction! Youroo!!

I can't see any difference in flow rates from the water outlets in the RV.

Make sure you have pushed the connection all the way in. Sometimes it looks like it is connected but isn't. Does put a lot of water in the water panel compartment.
