Reel Genius

 

I made a water-hose holder from a reel that’s generally used to wind up electric cords. The reels are sold at all types of stores, including Walmart. Mine holds 25 feet of hose. When I roll the hose, I start at the male (RV) end and leave about 2 feet unwound (or the length you need to reach the city water hookup from the ground), then I roll up the rest of the hose. At the campground, when we are ready to hook up, I take the 2-foot section and hook it to the RV. Then, with the reel on the ground, I unroll only as much hose as needed to reach the water spigot.
