Heated water hose problems
« on: February 26, 2018, 12:51:02 PM »
Has anyone ever heard of a heated hose being swollen or blistering? The area of the hose that is swollen is the hose that is inside the water control compartment of the RV. So, part of the hose is in the compartment and the other part of the hose runs outside to the water source and it is in freezing temps. I am assuming that the part of the hose in the compartment got too hot.

If you have extra hose with a heated hose, do you have to completely unroll it outside in the freezing temperatures? There is an alarming lack of info out there or in the users manuals on this subject.

I always put all of it outside, I've had problems with it freezing if the thermostat is in a heated or partially heated compartment.
The blistering probably is a failure but unlikely from getting too hot maybe too much pressure.

Thanks Glen - the thermostat is definitely out in the cold which causes the portion of the hose in the compartment to get pretty warm. Very strange that is hose is swollen and there is a blister near the male end.

Are you using a water pressure regulator? If not it could be causing the hose to separate. Which brand of heated hose are you using?
