Does anyone know a source for the flat drinking water hose Tim shows in this pic from post #2?

Looks like a Handi-hose without the reel. I got a 25' Handi-hose without the reel at Camping World. I don't remember if it said okay for drinking water. Use to wash exterior of van if permissible at campgrounds.

It's not bad but after a couple of years of little use has leaks in the hose (still usable). Also, have to unreel and roll up full length of hose for each use. That's why good for washing vehicle.

For filling fresh water tank, have a short 6' or so white hose and a 15' white hose. If fresh water spigot is right at the perfect location, short hose works. If not, longer or both hoses connected together work.

Pocket (accordian) hoses don't say whether okay for drinking water. Also, need full length of hose and haven't noticed any ones shorter than 25' but have not looked either.

There are far more durable and expensive ones built like fire hoses.

Says okay for drinking water. Can get without the plastic holder/reel. May have better prices elsewhere.

Best use of rear door panels by far. Amazing thanks for the idea!

I have enjoyed reading all the posts about rear door storage. Any thoughts on using well nuts so you have a removable panel?

Does anyone know if there are plastic inserts so you can use all those recess areas on the aft columns? I donít want to cover them due to electrical. Thx
