I am tired of fighting with my Camco white water hose. This time of year it is like wrestling a Bowa Constrictor to get it put away. Why do I do this? Anyone know of an easy coiling fresh water hose that won't break the bank. I saw one on a compact reel. Any thoughts?

They make expanding hoses that are safe for drinking water:

Can't get any better than this one. Can't kink, ultra light, more flexible than you can imagine....stores in a compact wad if you dont wind it up in a loop....and I swear it is self draining. Don't be cheap and turn away from this one. ... just look at its ratings....

I've been very happy with our Flexzilla hoses. They stay almost as flexible at 10 deg.F as they are at 80 deg.F and are easily coiled up for stowing. They also don't kink under pressure.

You won't go wrong with either the Zero G or Flexzilla. I have both (Home and RV) and am happy with both.

If the zero g is coiled and connected... will it stay coiled as I turn on the water pressure? or does it flip out?

I'm so bummed that my favorite drinking water safe hose is no longer available. It rolls up flat on an included reel like a fire hose. I bought the last two an online RV shop in Utah had and when the second one dies I guess I'll have to try a Zero G.

I wonder how long the Zero G hose will last in full time use?
