PIRIT Heated Hose : The Only Cold Weather Heated Hose

Saw this at the Hershey RV Show. Real nice set-up, a bit pricey but it's manufactured with the heat coils within the hose jacket itself.

I'm afraid some misunderstood my question, my hose has heat tape directly on the hose with pipe insulation on top of that. Never had a freeze up. At a campground a buddy of mine insisted that aluminum foil tape needed to be wrapped around the hose first then the heat tape and insulation or I was in for certain failure. As I said I've never had a failure despite a lot of winter rv'ing. Just thought I would through it out for opinions.

In my opinion you are fine and your friend has been sniffing the glue that hold his foil tape on.

i would not put foil between the hose and the heat tape - i think that would reflect the heat away from the water you're trying to keep from freezing. OVER the tape, fine. UNDER the tape? no.
