There is something about water hoses on an RV in that they seem to have a life of its own. It is like iPhone earbuds – you coil them nicely but when you go to use them again, they are a tangled mess. Plus, you need to keep your water (white) hose away from dump hoses.
First, always screw your water hose ends together when storing, regardless of which way you store it. This will keep any dust, dirt and creepy crawlies from setting up house in your water house (which means those creepy crawlies – or their bodies – can end up in your fresh water tank, which is way too gross for me to think about!)
There’s a few different ways to go, outside of the usual bungee cord option or attempting to secure the host to itself.
First, there are RV hose bags. These bags can be used to store water hoses and they are waterproof, so even if there is a bit of water, it won’t leak into your RV storage area. They can fit 25′ water hose easily with assorted attachments. You could also use them for extension cords and such.
There is a spot for writing on the outside with a marker, so you can easily see at a glance what is inside without having to open it.
If you need multiples, make sure you check the pricing. Usually singles have a deal that works out cheaper than buying 2, but when you get up into 4 and 6 in a set, they work out cheaper.
