Quick water and electric connection idea.

I wanted a quick way to connect city water and electric service to my U-Haul CT-13. Here are my solutions:

Water: Installation of a 50ft spiraled water hose in a 4" drain tube. Works perfect. No more problems with water spill in the car or the trailer due to the water remaining in the hose because everything stay outside.

Electricity: Installation of a 50ft retractable extention cable. I had to replace the plugs to swap sex type. Male to female and female to male.

Here are some pics.

We like quick setup as well. One item we use to speed up connection is a slip on, quick connect water house connection, no screw on for the male portion at the trailer.

I like the infomercials on that shrinking collapsible hose on TV. My daughter bought two of them about 3 months ago and now she said they have pin holes in them and leak. I dont know it its because of the sun and/or combination of being a cheap TV gimmick. That would fit into the drain also.. Great ideas that I am now considering.

To stop leaks from your stowed water hose just screw the two ends together before you stash the hose. It also keeps trash and small critters out of the hose.
