OK, I’m going to be completely honest, when I first saw the heated water hoses for sale at PPL RV Parts superstore, my first thought was “what in the world would we use those for
in Texas?”. I mean, this IS where I do a majority my RVing.
Boy, I have sure changed my thoughts about these. Now, Texas is known to have some pretty unpredictable weather throughout the seasons, but we have had some absolutely crazy weather, not only in Texas, but across the country this year as well. There have been early hard freezes in places where it was totally unexpected in particular. From warm and sunny one day, to weather in the teens the next day It just goes to prove that an RVer has to be prepared…always.
This happened to us one Thanksgiving when it went from a sunny balmy day to below 20 the next morning with a cold, cold wind. That’s when we discovered we had no water in the 5th wheel. The water pipe outside was frozen solid. At that time, I had never even heard of a heated water hose. Let me tell you, I have one now, as do many of my fellow RVers. These hoses are absolutely fantastic and can be used for so much more than just your RV. For example, if you live in an area where freezing temps can and do happen, this hose is a life saver! It’s great for your RV as well as for your barn or outdoor faucets for animals.
Check these out because they are a “MUST HAVE” for the winter RVer!! Who knows, if you have one of these hoses, you may be the only one in the park
-Stay warm, folks!
