Do you use a elbow on your water inlet?

So I have a Geo Pro on order and am ordering a few things in advance, the cheapest of which is an elbow to connect your fresh water hose to your RV, supposedly to minimize strain at the connection. Is this an important consideration? Is it worth the staggering five dollar cost? lol. My first thread here btw!!! The last thread on this is six years old.

I have an elbow on my fresh water hose AND on my black tank flush hose so each can drop straight down through a hole in the bottom of my water bay.

Have 2, one for fresh water and one for flush. They lasted about 2 years and have to replace them.

Yup. Matter of fact I also carry a two-way splitter because it comes in handy attaching an extra hose with a sprayer outside the camper. Much easier than trying to rinse things off with the outside shower...which is locked every time I need to open it...and the keys are inside...waaayyyy on the other side of the camper

Get a lead-free brass elbow. If it starts leaking then change the rubber washer in the swivel. They should last for years with normal usage.

Add me to the definitely use one list. It certainly takes some of the stress off the wall inlet fitting.
