Your "hose bin" will disappear.
Next step is a 10 footer to paint black for the turboflush.

There is also that silly hose that shrinks that you see all the time on tv, but I think it wouldn't last. Probably just surgical tubing in a sock.
You are correct, those green shrinking hoses do *not* last. I stepped on ours *ONCE* while it was inflated/full of water and it split...about a 2 inch split. Just the "inner tube" split, not the outter fabric.

Won't buy another one, that's for sure. It lasted about a month. I used it for watering my many hibiscus plants on the back patio.

I looked at one of those "green shrinking hoses" at the grocery store. The inside diameter of that thing is so tiny, or maybe it was just the exit orifice that was tiny to build pressure inside so it would expand. Either way, I can't imagine you'd get much water flow thru it.

I use one for my black tank flush and it's great for that. I've only used it about 10 times so far so not sure of durability. I link herks idea of painting a flat hose black for that purpose.

Another great idea. I did go to CW today and got 2 ten footers and the 25'. Not only will I take your advice and get another 10' piece and paint it black but I also plan to do the sewer hose mod with 5" square pvc fence post you and others have posted about on another thread. Thanks again for the ideas!

I use 25 ft hoses and roll them up then connect the ends togother and secure them with velco. Most of the time one 25 will work unless you are at a state park that is when I pull more out.

That's we've done up to this point but I like the idea of rolling the hose up on the real instead of wrestling it into a bin. Plus, I'm trying to reduce the size of the bins needed to store hoses and accessories. Gonna give it a shot!

I pick up 50 ft standard white RV from Walmart for 11 bucks CDN, I store them in mesh sacks (oranges, firewood etc) come in. I have used 4 of them at a Provincial Park to fill the tank. Also use the free dealer hose(only 1/2 inch) for black water uses.

I roll my 50 ft white hose up on an electrical cord reel works very well. I use a 25ft for most of my full hook ups. I try not to boondock if i dont have to :-)
