Hose/Cord Hanger

I like to keep my water hoses and power cord off the ground while connected. I've been using the CG power pedestal with moderate results.

Anyone use some sort of free standing hanger? Hard to get into hard ground, I suppose.

If I had a preference/was concerned, I would look at a "hose reel box".

Always helpful to get a response from an unconcerned member, .

Looking for some sort of hook(s). Don't mind them getting wet, just not dirty/muddy/sandy. Just trying to get them off the ground. Also, a box is tough on storage space.

I'm not being unconcerned nor trying to be a wise A__ ... what is your concern with leaving the water hose or power cord on the ground?

They get dirty/muddy/sandy unnecessarily. Hanging them keeps them clean. I usually coil them and hang from the CG power pedestal, but they don't stay there very well.

I use a towel to clean dirty cords. At most Provincial Parks I have to run 135 ft of power and to fill water tanks 225 ft of water hose. Just wipe them down and use some gloves.

Thanks for your explanation ... I don't think I would hang a coil of water hose on my power pedistal however. Perhaps fab yourself a few short shepherds hooks??

Yeah, something along that line (shepherds hook). Just wondered what others were doing. I can't be the only one that wants to keep them clean!

I've used J hooks on the CG Pedestals. The cable/Elec power supplies are by law in drip proof encloseures in weather locations. There's an idea for you. Hang a J hook from a "leather" headband or other adjustable material wrapped on the pedestal or nearby tree. When breaking camp put them in storage.
