Water Hose Quick Connects

Anyone have experience with modifying the fresh water intake connection by putting a "quick-connect" fitting on it to allow easier (and faster) connection to the appropriately fitted supply hose? Same question regarding the connection for the black tank flush.

Any problems?

Only place I've used one so far is on city water filler...my outside water filter is tall enough to sit on rear bumper, so no strain on connection, and with a brass 90 on the 'in' side of filter, the hose doesn't strain anything. I use the factory cap to seal the quick fitt'n when not in use.

No problems. I use which connects on all of my hoses (4 sections of fresh water hose and 2 black water hoses), 4-way splitter/manifold, water pressure regulator, and my utility hoses.

No problems at all. I actually modified mine just a hair and added a Camco faucet tap, so if I need outside water quickly. It also works good to relieve the pressure in the hose, once you turn off the campground tap...before removing the freshwater hose.

When rolling up the hose for storage, I always leave it connected to the Camco faucet tap. and then just screw the other end of the hose on to the Camco faucet.

Although the pic below doesn't show the tap with the quick connect attached, what I did was install the male end of the quick connect to the fresh water inlet of the RV, and then the female end of the quick connect to the Camco water tap.

Water Hose Quick Connects

We put quick connects on our washer hookups just for winterizing use - we dont have a washer but still run pink stuff through both hot and cold lines

A short piece of garden hose stuck in the washer drain - easy to winterize every time in that awkward area

Thanks for all the replies and suggestions. Going to pick up a set of them today and hook them up. Hope I still have room to close the access panel door but won't know until I try.

Just try to keep the 2 halves pretty much in line to reduce chance of leaking.......might want a spare. Found mine at Home Depot.
