Water Hose Reel
 
1 Attachment(s)
After being sick and tired of dealing with unruly water hoses, I put one of these Morryde reels in the basement of our 38FB. It’s really made for a power cord but works out pretty good I and doesn’t take up much space at all. Kind of pricey is the only downside.

I've considered an air hose reel. Just haven't gotten one yet. Yours looks doable.

I looked at those too. I think this one may contain the hose a little better than some I looked at. When you get into some of the nicer ones they get pricey too. I’ve got 50’ on this one and there is room for plenty more.

I had one for my power cord (held 50' of my 50 amp cord nicely). Like previously said, it does take up a lot of space. While I'm waiting for my Riverstone to be built, I've been shopping. I am going to try those marine/RV Zero G water hoses. Takes up almost no space. I have the regular Zero G around the house and they are great. A lot better than the standard expandable hoses. My only concern is how they will hold up under constant 45 PSI pressure. For $28 for 25' we'll find out.

After many years of frustrations (especially in the colder weather) trying to roll a hose up into a "tub" I finally opted for a Zero G hose and I'm kicking myself for not doing it much sooner. Drinking water safe - extremely flexible and a 5-year warranty.



Easily curls up into a very small plastic tub. Available at Lowe's.https://mobileimages.lowes.com/produ...1724400128.jpg

I would be interested to hear how it works out. It sounds like you have had good experience. When I looked at these on Amazon I was gun shy because of some of the bursting reviews. They should be fine at 600 lbs burst rating. You probably know this but “some” campgrounds run pressures much higher than 45 lbs so it’s a good idea to take a pressure regulator “that has a pressure gauge” with you. Not so much because of the hose, but to protect your interior plumbing system.
You are going to love your Riverstone! There is so much more quality built in.

Thanks. Looking forward to delivery. I have the hose, now all I need is an RV. LOL.
