I never have to unattach the hose at this location, and any dripping from the flush operation can happen when I let the hose drape down outside the compartment for a minute or two.
To facilitate storage, I attached a broom clamp on the side wall, and the free end of the short hose bends up and clips into that.
I did a similar thing upon a recommendation from Orvan. I have (2) 4 foot 5/8" hoses (different colors) that I leave attached to the fresh water and black tank flush connections using 90 degree elbows. I feed the hoses thru the access hole and attach them to my supply hoses below my unit that I connect to the spigot. Thus when I disconnect them, the water runs out onto the ground rather then inside the unit. I also have a shutoff valve between the black flush connection and the 4 foot hose so I can quickly shutoff water when using the black flush. I leave them on all the time and just curl them up inside the control compartment after they have drained, thus no water in the compartment. I also have quick disconnects on the hoses where I connect the supply hose.
This is the hose I got for the fresh water connection - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

And this is the quick connect I ordered from Home Depot - https://www.homedepot.com/p/Melnor-2...5411/309634277
I would supply a picture but my unit is at Orvan's for some work.
