Just dropping you a line after using the hose grips for a while now…to let you know I love my hose grips. They are working out very well on our fifth wheel. It makes hose connections much easier and once installed, they eliminated my anxiety over cross threading those plastic fittings. I have a Nautilus water and center that sits inboard, behind a door and I leave then connected all the time. I realize that won’t be the case when connections are on the outside of an RV….but I sure do love them…great Idea!
