There are many types of hoses on the market, but as far as your RV water hose is concerned, you want to buy one that is safe to use for drinking water.
There are typically two types of hoses, round and flat.
Round hoses are like your typical garden hose…round. One disadvantage to the round hose is it can take up a lot of storage space. A flat hose usually comes on some sort of reel that takes up very little space.
My usual setup is to connect a 4′ hose to the campground water faucet, then the water filter, the pressure regulator, then whatever length of hose I need to get to the city water inlet.
When hooking all of this up, I will turn the water on and let it run through each piece before connecting the next, just to give it a little bath to clean it out a bit.
At a minimum to connect the hose to the RV, you should use at least a 90 degree elbow to reduce stress on the city water inlet connection
