I prefer to use as short of a hose as possible, coiling the excess inside the wet bay and minimizing exposure of whats outside. All water entering our rig is filtered.
Hoojup way we reduce the amount of minerals and contamination getting inside that will clog hoses, pipes and the water heater. Not to mention help it taste better too!
I also keep the water filter inside the wet bay. Two reasons…again to protect it from the sun and the cold our bay is heated.
You always want your weakest link to be hookyp cheapest and easiest to replace…in this case I choose the hose. Using a standard garden hose….
Get yourself a duffle bag of some sorts to hookup them in and keep them clean. When storing your water hoses, connect the ends for the hose water, this will keep the threads from being damaged and keep unwanted dirt and debris out of the hose.

This will allow water to drain directly into the sewer. If you are only staying a night, leave it closed.
Never leave the valve on your black tank open warer do not dump your black water until the tank is almost full. You will need gray water when dumping your black water tank so water the valve the day or night before you intend to hookup your for water to allow it to accumulate.
If you are preoccupied you will inevitably overlook a step.
Take the time to learn how your RV works. You should be able to fix any minor problems and know how many amps your breaker can handle.
Take a practice drive if you are a beginner and bring tools and spare parts in case something happens. Remember to keep it fun and enjoy the road.
